Mailbox Monday #7

Mailbox Monday is sponsored by Marcia at the Printed Page.

Here's what I got in the mail this week:

1. Another copy of Gods Behaving Badly by Marie Phillips from Hatchette Group

2. When Ghosts Speak by Mary Ann Winowski from Hatchette Group, the only book on backorder from the Spooktacular box I won.

3. Keeping Hannah Waiting by Dave Clarke from Bostick Communications

***Don't forget my Pemberley by the Sea contest. It ends on Dec. 10 at Midnight EST. Sorry open only to U.S. and Canadian addressed residents.**

Serena, I think I requested Keeping Hannah Waiting but with the caveat that I wouldn't be able to read it for a few months, so I doubt I'll receive it. I can't wait to see your thoughts on this. So, would this qualify for the challenge or not?

I got Gods Behaving Badly and Hannah also... :) I can't wait to read both.

I entered a bunch of Gods Behaving Badly contests and then found out I could get a copy from Hatchette. Then after that I ended up winning the book four timess, but each time I told them to pick another name. But my review copy hasn't come yet. I hope I don't end up with no copies!

Here's my mailbox

Keeping Hannah Waiting sounds like a really good book. Can't wait to see some of these reviews.

Callista said...

I finally just won a copy of Gods Behaving Badly myself! I can't wait to read that one.

Ramya said...

Serena said...

Shana: It will qualify for me since I don't have to review it until January.

Toni: I feel the same.

Callista: Hey if you don't end up with a copy, you can always enter my contest.

Dar: I had a bunch of books waiting at my door today when I got home.

Ramya: Now there is an endorsement. I may just have to read it earlier than January.
