Its hard to believe its that time of the week for another mailbox post.
The hosts of the mailbox memes are:

Tynga's Reviews

Tynga’s Reviews is the host of Stacking the Shelves and the other host is Mailbox Monday which now has its own blog.

Mailbox Monday will no longer be hosted monthly by different bloggers.

Good early morning everyone. This is a pre-scheduled post that I am writing ahead of time. I am currently away and on hopefully what is turning into a good family vacation. I was a little bit worried about going away with all that is going on but with reassurance from my sister I decided it was best to take a break and in all reality if needed I am a flight away and can be home within a few hours.

I did purchase these books about two weeks ago and I am using them for this post.
The Land of Stories: Beyond the Kingdom by Chris Colfer is the 4th in the series and I am super excited to read it. I love the cover. I just discovered that he is now working on a picture book to go along with the series. How neat will that be?
The last book I picked up was NYPD Red 2 by James Patterson and Marshall Karp. I love reading anything by James Patterson and I am behind in his books so I figured it would be easier to get back into him with the starting of this series. I am bringing this and the first book with me on vacation to read.

Do you bring alot of books with you on vacation? Do you go to book stores when your on vacation?

This is all I got this week. I will be home for next week’s mailbox post and I will blog about the books I bought on vacation because you know I will be shopping at Barnes & Noble will I am in the USA and any other place that has a book store. Hope your all having a good week. See you next week 🙂

A Holiday Tradition…

Growing up my family had a few traditions such as we all got new pjs, socks and underwear for Christmas and we also got a huge orange and a red delicious apple.

Since moving away from home and starting my own family I have continued the new pjs, socks, undewear, the apple and orange. I have also added things such as we all get something new to wear on Christmas day (sweater, shirt etc), every year we pick out a new ornament for the tree, a new Christmaas picture book is bought as well as a new movie and christmas cd.

I think its fun to make traditions that are  your own and things you can pass done to your children.

What are some of your traditions?

Five Nicest Characters that will be getting everything they want this year!

The Nicest Characters in Literature for me are:

  1. Thomas from the Maze Runner. I just watched the movie and for me he risks it all to get out.
  2. Courtney Crumrin from the graphic novels The Night Things. She is this sweet girl who is different just trying to fit in.
  3. I know this is a picture book but I have to say The Little Engine that Could. The little engine deserves to be on the nice list according to Michael.
  4. Cole from the book Found in You
  5. Finally Zoe from Losing Logan.

On the Fourth Day of Book Blogmas

Four Naughty Characters that will be getting coal this year!

The Naughtiest Characters in Literature

This is another good prompt today. I had to think about this one for a bit but I ended up with these four Naughtiest Characters in books:

  1. Gideon Cross from the series Crossfire by Sylvia Day. I have a love/hate relationship with him
  2. Mr “M” from the series One Night by Jodi Ellen Malpas. I don’t know what it is about him but there is more to him then meets the eye.
  3. President Snow from the series Hunger Games. He is just aweful and should be on the top of the list.

I will need to come back and edit this because I can’t think of a fourth one. I know there is tons of bad boys but I just can’t think of one right now.
