I think Christmas Came early this year

As you know Mailbox Monday is originally hosted by Marcia at The Printed Page. Marcia has decided to put Mailbox Monday on a blog tour and for the month of December the Mailbox Monday host is Jenny from Let Them Read Books. Jenny is a new blogger to me and I am looking forward to reading more of her blog. So don’t forget if you take part in Mailbox Monday hop over to Jenny’s blog and leave your link.

ITs hard to believe that we are in our final month of 2010 and only two more Mailbox Monday posts for this year. Where did the time go?

As you can see I got a ton of great books last week which lead me to believe that I think Christmas came early to my house.

From my book fairy at Sourcebooks (Thank You book fairy)I got the following books:
-Real Mermaids Don’t Wear Toe Rings by Helene Boudreau (super excited to read this one because she is a Canadian author and also I think she is an East Coast girl)
-The Samantha Granger Experiment: Fused by Kari Lee Townsend
-Beautiful Dead: Arizona by Eden Maguire
-The Secret Society of the Pink Crystal Ball by Risa Green
-Bran Hambric: The Spector Key by Kaleb Nation
-Amelia O’Donohue is so not a virgin by Helen Fitzgerald
-Songs of a Teenage Noman by Kim Culbertson

From my book fairy at Peachtree (Thank You book fairy) I got the following books:
-Santa’s Last Present by Marie-Aude & Elvire Murail, Illustrated by Quentin Blake
-To Whom the Angels Spoke by Terry Kay, illustrated by Eileen Blyth
-Little Rabbit’s Christmas by Harry Horse
-Under the Snow by Melissa Stewart, illustrated by Constance R. Bergum
-Snow Day by Lester L. Laminack, Illustrated by ADam Gustavson
-Santa’s Eleven Months off by Mike Reiss, Illustrated by Michael G. Montgomery
-Where teddy bears come from by Mark Burgess, Illustrated by Russell Ayto

From B&H Books:
-Besides Still Waters by Tricia Goyer (ARC coming out April 2011)

From WaterBrook Press:
-Two Tickets to the Christmas ball by Donita K. Paul

From Helen Ellis (author)
-Eating the Cheshire Cat by Helen Ellis. This awesome author sent me a signed copy of her book. I met her at BEA last year and we keep in touch. The other day on twitter someone posted a picture of the book to Helen and I commented about how could I have not known about this book? So I went searching online for it and I was just about to buy it when she sent me a message saying she would send it to me. So I am super excited to read this book. It came out in 2000.

As you might have read my posts last week about the Secret Santa’s I got those two books last week as well.

-Paper Town by John Green
-Sing me to sleep by Angela Morrison

Well through technical difficulties I encountered this morning, I was using live writer and it shut down on me as I was trying to post this post so I had to re-write it again so this isn’t like my orignal post but none the less its finally up.

This is what I got last week, what about you?

  1. Holy kamole, Christmas did come early for you! Enjoy all of your new books, Cindy!

  2. Good heavens! Christmas certainly did come early. What a stack! Looks like you’ll have a lot to read this winter. Enjoy!

  3. Very cool. It seems as though Santa did not forget you.

    I read the Amelia is so Not a Virgin and thought it was weirdly written – i never got into it unfortunately.

    Let me know about the Risa and the Crystal Ball because I have been looking at it on and off at Chapters and might beg it off you if its good 🙂

  4. Kathy Michael has enjoyed all the picture books and I am sure I will enjoy mine over the holidays.

    I Write in Books winter is like my hibernation time. I tend to read more over the cold months then any other time.

    Tina I hope that Santa will still bring me books for Christmas. Of course I will pass those two books on to you. You know I don’t mind sharing. Those will be the first two I read so that I can bring them in January.

  5. I love Eating the Cheshire Cat! I read it when it first came out (back in my poor days when I would hang out at Barnes and Noble and take advantage of my roommate’s discount to drink caramel frappacinos and read books for free). I bought a copy a few years back, and I might have to dig it up and give it a re-read!

  6. Kate I have read her YA book The Turning and I thought I did my research on helen but it appears as though I didn’t. I am curious to read this.
