Books I received from my mother in the mail:

7. Finger Lickin' Fifteen by Janet Evanovich
8. Swimsuit by James Patterson

Mondays: Musings/Whereabouts

Sandy Nawrot said...

Wow! That is a nice, chunky list! I just downloaded The Woman in White on my Kindle. And I must get my hands on the latest Stephanie Plum. That will keep my busy for oh...a few hours at least!

Anna said...

Get reading, lady! You've got a lot of books there.

Wow! You got a lot of book this week one way or another! So many look really good!

Kristen said...

Don't you just love weeks like this one bookwise?!

bermudaonion said...

I didn't realize Anita Shreve has a new book coming out! Carl grabbed my copy of Swimsuit as soon as it came in and he's really been enjoying it.

Kaye said...

Whooo Swimsuit will keep you glued to your seat! Great batch of books, Serena.

Have a great week and happy reading. My MM is here

Chris said...

Wow - that's quite a collection! Sounds like you'll be having quite a fun time!

Bonnie said...

Great list of books!! I hope that you enjoy Finger Lickin Fifteen...it's a fun and quick read.

Serena said...

Julie: Thanks for checking out the list. Some of these look fantastic.

Kristen: I love weeks like this.

Bermudaonion: I love that Mom and I share books. I think this week will be mom's reviews, since she sent me a bunch.

Kaye: I usually enjoy Patterson's books.

Chris: It was a blast getting all of these books

Jo-Jo said...

OOOOHhhh, you got a new Shreve book....I am totally envious now!

Blodeuedd said...

A lot of great books there. I so want to read Fingerlicking 15 :D

Serena said...

Jo-Jo: Miriam is a doll...

Blodeuedd: I haven't read the other 14 yet!

Mari said...

Wow! Lots of books. Enjoy!

Iliana said...

Oh fun, a book sale! I read Azadeh Moaveni's latest book this year. It was interesting although I felt a bit of a disconnect with the author. I would still pick up another of her books though. Hope you like this one. Oh and I'm really looking forward to your reviews of the Georgia Evans books... Still not sure if I want to follow up with that series.

Janel said...

Love those library sales! You were very restrained compared to me at a sale.

Callista said...

I'd like to read Lipstick Jihad.. great pick!

Lots to read.

Toni said...

Wow... smokin' hot mailbox. I got the big ZERO.... ENJOY!!

Lisa said...

I missed our last library sale, but it seems that ours is overpriced anyway.

I need to remember to put the Evanovich on my library list too.

Book Escape said...

You have a lot of reading to do. I'll be interested in the Anita Shreve book. I've heard good things about her books but haven't read anything yet.

Marie Burton said...

OH I Love library sales. That is awesome, you did well!!

Dar said...

Wow, where you gonna put all those books? lol.

Mary said...

I think you could start your own library!!

Jeanne said...

Although I loved the first thirteen Stephanie Plum books and liked the fourteenth well enough, I recently posted a review telling why I didn't like Finger Lickin Fifteen very much.
