Mailbox Monday and It's Monday....What Are You Reading????

Mailbox Monday 
is a gathering place for readers to share the books that
came into their house last week and explore great book blogs. 
Warning: Mailbox Monday can lead to envy, toppling TBR piles and humongous wish lists.

Upcoming Reads:
Not sure what will be in store for me because on Saturday, my oldest son, Mitch will finally be back on American soil!!! I will be spending three days with him and reading is NOT on the agenda. Once again I will be making choices based on whims and what makes me smile!!


  1. Woohoo, enjoy your time with Mitch and smile away girl :) I'm off to see if I can score a copy of the new Jill Shalvis lol

  2. Nope, I'm not surprised at all. I'm sure you'll love it.

  3. So very happy your son will be home and safe! Enjoy every moment with him.

  6. You must be so excited, Staci... this is going to seem like such a looong week!

  7. Shalvis, you, yes I am surprised ;)

  8. Have a fanastic time with your son! The best thing about books is that they are always there waiting for us and don't pout (I think).
