Mailbox Monday...

I just found this very cool post on The Printed Page blog! Check it out ~ it sounds like a lot of fun! I'm still very new to blogging, but I'm going to try to participate every Monday. Please come back each week to see which books I've received, and to leave a comment with your list of books (or a link to your website/blog) so everyone can see your books as well. It will be fun to see what everyone has gotten!

*To read a description for each book, just click on the cover*

  1. Wow your blog looks terrific and so do the books that you received! I've been wanting to read Breathe and that Lonestart series by Colleen Coble looks great as well! As you know I've read both books in the Brides of Bonneterre series and loved them and am in the process of reading Ransome's Honor.
