Mailbox Monday #5

Welcome to another edition of my Mailbox Monday, which is sponsored by Marcia at The Printed Page! I swear I will have a free Monday sometime soon, but for now, I'm posting these on Sunday nights.

What did I get in my mailbox, you'll be surprised!

1. A box of Spooktacular books, which I won at Words to Mouth and Hatchette Group; I think one of the books that was supposed to be in the box is still on back order--Possibly When Ghosts Speak by Mary Ann Winkowski

The 13 Best Horror Stories of All Time, edited by Leslie Pockell
The Heretic's Daughter by Kathleen Kent
Isolation by Travis Thrasher
The Historian by Elizabeth Kostova
The Monsters by Dorothy and Thomas Hoobler
Ghostly Encounters by Frances Kermeen
The Myrtles Plantation by Frances Kermeen
Dracula by Bram Stoker (Can you believe I didn't own this yet?!)
The Terror by Dan Simmons

2. Breathing Out the Ghost by Kirk Curnutt (from the author for his TLC Book Tours).

3. The Memorist by MJ Rose (from the author)

I got that big box week before last week and it was so much fun to open.

I love when I get big boxes of books to open. Its like Christmas.

Jeannie said...

Really? I'm glad you own Dracula now. You've read it before though, I'm sure. Gosh, I can't count the number of times I read it. The last time was in high school though...sigh...that long ago.

The Heretic's Daughter is great, one of my favorites this year.

Dracula is great. I have to re-read it for 2009. It's been too long since I've read it!

I won the Hatchette Box too (I now own three copies of Dracula- and I still haven't read it!)and though I haven't started any of them yet I can't help but go over and flip through them occasionally!

Great you got a big box of books. No such luck here for me!


I liked Dracula and The Heretic's Daughter is great read. Best so far, for me.

Serena said...

Jeannie: I've read dracula in high school as well, but never re-read it because I don't have it...though that makes no sense considering I could go to the library and get it...but I guess the problem is solved now.

Bookish ruth: I wanted to win this box simpy because The Heretic's Daughter was in it!

Ladytink: Wow, how can you resist reading dracula!

Gautami: Someday you will win a big box of books...just got to get these publishers on board!

Jo-Jo said...

How lucky to win such a nice package of books! Congratulations. I can't wait to read the Heretic's Daughter myself.

Luanne said...

I loved the Heretic's Daughter! What a great box of books!

Dar said...

I didn't know you had one a Spooktacular box-Congrats! There's some good ones in there.

Nymeth said...

That spooky box sounds fantastic! I love Dracula and The Historian was great too. And I want to read The Terror and The Heretic's Daughter. I've also read The Monsters and didn't care for it, but that was me. The subject matter certainly is interesting. Enjoy your new books :)

Toni said...

Whoa.. that is a haul.. I get you were so excited to get all the books from the Spooktacular Giveaway. I saw you on another giveaway or two this past week. Congrats.

Serena said...

Serena said...

Shana: I cannot believe you don't have this book. I had two at one point, but Anna claimed the other.
