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 #17


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.

It's been a few weeks since I posted an IMM. Life was busy, part of which was taking a long weekend to visit my sister in Florida for her 50th birthday. It was a ton of fun and I'm now under orders to start planning my 50th birthday (I'm the last sibling under 50). Coming home, I found packages with books waiting for me, which was a good way to come home after such a fun weekend.

I haven't bought anything in the past few weeks but I did get some from the library and receive a bunch for review, including several that I'm very excited about.

Review


OMG. When I found out I was receiving this book for review, I squeed so loud I think they heard me in the next galaxy (sorry if I hurt your ear drums). I <3 Patty Briggs and her UF books are so very, very good. I had to rearrange my review schedule to accommodate this one but I know it will be worth it. Sadly, this is the last book in the Alpha & Omega series but maybe Anna and Charles will pop up in the Mercy books. I can dream, right?

 

I don't always LIKE the vampires in the books that inspired these vignettes, ok sometimes I hate them lol, but the fact that I have such passionate responses to them, well, you know the writing is good.When Donna offered a copy to me for review, of course I said "YES!" More schedule re-arranging commenced. (BTW, Rajmund and Duncan? They're MINE! Mine I say!)


I read, reviewed and enjoyed the first book, but still haven't read the second one yet. I'm short on time, so I'll probably just skim reviews of book two so I know what I missed.


This is an Amish romance, not my usual fare, but I occasionally like a sweet, chaste romance so I thought I'd give it a try. There will also be a guest post by the author.


I received this through Random House's Early Reads program. It sounds like something I'd grab at the library to read.


Jax will be reviewing this one, she jumped at the chance. :)

This sounds like a light, fluffy read; I'm not sure whether Liz or I will be reviewing this one. 


Honestly, it doesn't sound like something I'd enjoy. It was unsolicited review, not sure it will get done. If anyone wants to review it, drop me a line.

Library


I enjoy this series, it's mystery light. This one was ok, nothing special, which was disappointing since it was an anniversary book.


I just started this one today. I read and enjoyed the first one but my library doesn't have book two so I'm reading this one anyway.

Won



PNR author Dani Harper has been doing a blog tour promoting her new book, Changeling Moon, and I was fortunate enough to win a copy at one of the stops. I have book one and now book three. She says they are stand alones so I shouldn't have a problem reading this one. Along with the book was a tote bag, some bookmarks, and some postcards. I tried to take a picture but my camera's battery was dead.

It's been a good few weeks for books. How was your week? What did you get?
