BEA'S BOOK NOOK "I can't imagine a man really enjoying a book and reading it only once." C. S. Lewis “If one cannot enjoy reading a book over and over again, there is no use in reading it at all.” ― Oscar Wilde

In My Mailbox #3

In My Mailbox was started by The Story Siren. It's a way to share and highlight all the books we receive, even if we don't review them. l share books that I buy, that I receive for review, get from the library, borrow from a friend, etc.


A Discovery of Witches: A Novel

I won "A Discovery of Witches" over on the BookTrib site. Each week they giveaway multiple copies of five different titles.


The Dog Who Knew Too Much: A Chet and Bernie Mystery (Chet and Bernie Mysteries) 

It's a mystery, with a dog as a key character. I am *such* a sucker for those types of stories.

Kindle Freebies

You may have noticed that I'm a fool for those Amazon Kindle freebies. It's hard to pass up a deal and it's a good way to try new authors or pickup reference books that I might have passed up otherwise.


Spider's Bite (Elemental Assassin, Book 1)Cipher: Southern Arcana, Book 4

I've been wanting to try this Jennifer Estep series for a while now so when Amazon marked down the Kindle book to $1.99 I snapped it up. The Moira Rogers book is part of a series and I'm still catching up but I enjoyed the first one and I LOVE their (it's two people writing under one name) books so I pre-ordered it and now that it's out, it's sitting on my Kindle. :)

From the Library

Battle Hymn of the Tiger MotherAll Together Dead (Original MM Art): A Sookie Stackhouse Novel (Sookie Stackhouse/True Blood)Robopocalypse: A Novel

After I downloaded the Harris book and started reading it, I realized that I'd already read it. I enjoy re-reading but I have a huge TBR pile right now and it was only meh the first time around so I moved to some other library books instead. The Tiger Mother book interests me as a teacher. I read an excerpt and has mixed reactions to it so I wanted to read the whole thing.

For Review

The Kingdom of Childhood Sleeper's RunGarden of Secrets (Angel's Bay Novel)

"The Kingdom of  Childhood" sounds very interesting: dark, tragic, and set in a school. It's put out by Mira, an imprint of Harlequin, which seems like an odd decision on their part. There's a tragic romance in it but it's much more than just a romance, judging by the description. "Sleeper's Run" is a political thriller/mystery while "Garden of Secrets" promises to be a lighter read, it's a romantic mystery.

So, those are my most recent arrivals. What's in your mailbox? 


  1. I've been wanting to read it since even before it was released. It's sitting in my tbr pile.

  2. Math for Grownups made me know, since I'm younger. Nice book week!

  3. LOL Melina. Even when I was younger, I needed lots of math help. I hope that this will be a useful reference.

    Sash and Em, I've heard a range of reviews concerning DoW but I'm hopeful.
