In My Mailbox 12/18

Sunday, December 18, 2011

FIRST OF ALL...I am so so so so SO sorry for the sudden hiatus this past week. Some of you may have known, but I recently to the greater Boston area for my new job, and I was renting from a lady whom we all trusted. Well, this lady decided not to pay her mortgage on the place I was renting from her, so the place is under foreclosure. Needless to say, it threw a wrench in my plans. Things are falling into place now, and my lease is being upheld by the bank (thank God), but I needed this hiatus to figure it all out. SO, my point is, I'm back! :)

--------------------------------------

In My Mailbox is an amazing weekly meme hosted by Kristi from The Story Siren that features the books we have received during the week. It's so much fun because we get to see what our fellow bloggers stumbled upon this week and add even more to our piles of books! Without further ado, this week I received the following books:






The Raft by S.A. Bodeen (ARC) - Thank you, Feiwel & Friends






Thief's Covenant by Ari Marmell (ARC) - Thank you, PYR

    The only thing that stinks about living in California is being the last one to get mass mailings! I feel like the only person that is still waiting on that Macmillan package. :P
    Can't wait to hear your thoughts on all of these!

  30. Ugh...I'm so sorry about your lease. What a nightmare. It makes me grateful that I have a fabulous landlord. And since I am also a landlord, that I have good tenants and a good property manager. Hope things go okay with the bank owned property until your lease is up.
