Mailbox Monday - May 11, 2009

Another fantastic week. I like that I received a lot of middle grade books that my daughter and I can both read!

REAL SOLUTIONS FOR BUSY MOMS by Kathy Ireland - I "won" this autographed book on Twitter and can't wait to read it. What mom doesn't need a book like this?

THE PAGES IN BETWEEN: A HOLOCAUST LEGACY OF TWO FAMILIES, ONE HOME by Erin Einhorn - Another Twitter "win"

PERFECT LIFE
by Jessica Shattuck - This book was a great surprise!

THE SISTERS CLUB: RULE OF THREE by Megan McDonald - My daughter can't wait to read this one since she loved the Judy Moody books when she was younger.

NETHERLAND
by Joseph O'Neill - HUGE surprise! I was just "talking" about this book on Twitter after I heard that President Obama was reading it.

AMERICAN EVE by Paula Uruburu - This book looks amazing!

DRAGONBREATH
(ARC) by Ursula Vernon - Another middle grade book that looks fantastic!

EXIT MUSIC
by Ian Rankin - A twitter win for wishing Mr. Rankin a "Happy Birthday."

OBAMA: THE HISTORIC JOURNEY
- This young reader's edition is for a future book tour.

MAGICKEEPERS: THE ETERNAL HOURGLASS BOOK 1
by Erica Kirov

THE HOUSE OF FORTUNE STREET by Margot Livesey

THE LAST WAR
(ARC) by Ana Menendez

THE FIXER UPPER (ARC) by Mary Kay Andrews

DISMANTLED (ARC) by Jennifer McMahon

THE LATE, LAMENTED MOLLY MARX (ARC) by Sally Koslow

And some other ARC goodies courtesy of Ballantine Books!
