In My Mailbox






These books were all waiting for me when we got home from vacation! I almost couldn't wait to get home to jump in! I've started with CRESS even though ROSEMARY COTTAGE and WILLIAM SHAKESPEARE'S STAR WARS are for review and CRESS is not! I couldn't wait to get into this book! I'm really just starting it, but so far it is good. I also still have a few books on my Kindle that are for review. I feel like I am slipping farther and farther behind on those. On vacation I read 6 books. Yes, I had a lot of time to read! I need to go on vacation more often as since we have been home I have only been able to sit down and read for a few minutes at a time. I'm just slightly overwhelmed! Does this make me not go looking for more books to read? Of course not! I've been to a book store, I have looked through NetGalley and currently have several books on Pre-Order from Amazon. How does a person not have time to read yet have time to go looking for books? I manage it quite well, thank you very much!

Yes, today is my birthday! I have no problems announcing to the world that I am now 48 years old! Woohoo! It does scare me a bit to realize that I will be 50 in 2 years! My oldest daughter is making dinner for me tonight and we will all be together so I call that a perfect birthday! How do you like to celebrate your birthday? Do you like a huge party or just a family gathering?

    1. The book spine says it comes out in 2014. That seems too long to wait! I think I read somewhere that the cover reveal is tomorrow. It is good so far. And yeah, Shakespeare and Star Wars! I can't wait to get into that one too. I'm thinking I might have to start reading more than one book at a time with all of the great books sitting on my shelf.

  3. I hate I didn't get over here yesterday now! Happy (late) Birthday!! My husband turned 34 yesterday, so it's a pretty special day to me, too! ;)

    That is one awesome stack of books you got to come home to! :D

    1. Thank you for the Birthday wishes Bluerose! And happy late birthday to your hubby too!

      And yes! It is an awesome stack of books. I have an awesome stack of books on my Kindle as well. I'm drowning in books at the moment! And the sad thing is I still continue to get more. There are just so many good books coming out soon. I need to be reading 24/7 to finish them all.

      Thanks for stopping by and commenting!

  4. First off, happy belated birthday!!! Like Bluerose, I apologize that the wishes are late, but I hope your day was grand and your new year of life will be wonderful. :)

    Second, what a great stack of books to come home to! And Cress???? How lucky you are! I would probably dive right into that one, too. ;)

    Third, I totally know what you mean! I somehow manage to browse and acquire new books all the time, when I have so many I still need to read (and I already feel pressured to catch up, LOL). Book addicts, unite! ;)

    1. Hi Amber! Thanks for the birthday wishes! I had a wonderful celebration. Went to breakfast with my husband in the morning and then my daughters cooked dinner for me. Love my family :)

      I know, totally lucky on getting CRESS! It is so good!

      I'm seriously feeling stressed about how many books I have for review. I kick myself for requesting them, but how can I resist? And what have I done all day? Sit in front of the TV. In my defense though I have a summer cold and my excuse is that my head hurts to read a book at the moment. Yes, Book Addicts need to unite, there needs to be a 12 step program!!

      Thanks for stopping by and commenting :)
