Mailbox Monday #9

Welcome to another addition of Mailbox Monday, sponsored by Marcia at The Printed Page, and you'll never guess, its appearing on a Monday!

Here's what I got in my mailbox this week:

From M.J. Rose for the upcoming TLC Book Blog Tour:

1. The Reincarnationist by M.J. Rose

2. The Memorist by M.J. Rose

Also in this week's mailbox:

3. The Sinner's Guide to Confession by Phyllis Schieber for a January tour

4. Revelations by Melissa De La Cruz (I bought this new one in the Blue Blood Series at Target--I wasn't supposed to buy any before the holidays, but I couldn't resist it)

What did you get in your mailbox?

Don't you dare buy any more books!!! I told you to wait until Christmas. You're lucky with that purchase, though. LOL

Happy reading!

The Sinner's Guide . . sounds interesting - I read about it somewhere in blogland! Here's my Mailbox!

I promise I won't buy anymore books. I had no idea the new Blue Bloods was out yet. I thought she had another one coming out instead. LOL

I want the New Patterson, but I have to wait.

Wendi: Sinner's guide sounded too good to pass up.

Hi Serena,

Thanks for stopping by my Mailbox!! In answer to your question, WildCard Tours is a yahoo group (with a blog) where members sign up to review books. The group reviews Christian books, and code is provided that you can add to your blog post which includes the first chapter, a blurb about the book and a blurb about the author. There are usually a few pictures too. You get to choose the books you sign up for. I've really enjoyed the books I've received!

Here's a link to the blog (I think there is a link to the Yahoo group on the right side): http://firstwildcardtours.blogspot.com/

I've got The Audacity of Hope coming for my friend, and then Bill O'Reilly's book for my Dad-in-Law!!!

: )

Thanks, Serena!

Serena said...

I've read an Audacity of Hope. It was pretty good.

Callista said...

Ooh lucky you to get those first two books! I've been trying to win them in contests!

Happy Holidays

Serena said...

Callista: Honestly I just contacted TLC Book Tours and signed up for the January tour. You can check and see if they have any more openings. If not, I'll be holding a contest.

I usually get in trouble at Christmastime also. Who can resist buying a book though? lol
I did buy one today but it's for my son's girlfriend. I picked up Twilight for her xmas present.

Serena said...

Jo-Jo: I hear you.

I'll be interested to see what you think about your first two books. I'm also interested in our Sinner's Guide book.

I am looking forward to one day reading the two M.J. Rose books. I've enjoyed the other books I've read by her. I hope you enjoy all your new books!

Serena, I can't wait to see what you think about the Rose books. They look so good.
