Mailbox Monday - April 6, 2009

I'm a little embarrassed to participate in Mailbox Monday this week because I received so many books. Many were contest wins if that counts for anything, but I also received a few surprises. There are so many terrific books that I don't even know where you start!

GIRLS IN TRUCKS by Katie Crouch

SUNNYSIDE BLUES (ARC) by Mary Carter

THE WAY HOME (ARC) by George Pelecanos

THE PHYSICK BOOK OF DELIVERANCE DANE (ARC) by Katherine Howe

THE OCEAN INSIDE by Janna McMahan -- What a wonderful surprise! I reviewed Ms. McMahan's first book CALLING HOME and really enjoyed it!

ZAMORA'S ULTIMATE CHALLENGE by M.K. Scott -- You can read my review here.

THE TURNAROUND by George Pelecanos

THE STORY OF FORGETTING by Stefan Merrill Block

BEACH CHAIR DIARIES by Janet E. Spurr - This one was a surprise!

SILLY LITTLE RICH GIRL by Jimmy Gleacher

PAINTING THE INVISIBLE MAN by Rita Schiano -- Another surprise!
