Mailbox Monday 12/31

It's time for another Mailbox Monday  which was created by Marcia at The Printed Page, and this month is hosted by Susan at Suko's Notebook.

Mailbox Monday is the gathering place for readers to share the books that came into their house last week... Warning: Mailbox Monday can lead to envy, toppling TBR piles and humongous wish list

I missed last week's Mailbox Monday, so here is two week's worth of arrivals:

Heat Wave by Richard Castle (Christmas gift)
Banana Split by Josi Kilpack (Christmas gift)
Dilemma of Charlotte Farrow by Olivia Newport (for review, from Baker Publishing)
Cheaper, Better, Faster: Over 2,000 Tips and Tricks to Save You Time and Money Every Day by Mary Hunt (for review, from Baker Publishing)
The Tutor's Daughter by Julie Klassen (for review, from Litfuse Publicity)
7 Years Younger: The Revolutionary 7-Week Anti-Aging Plan by The Editors of Good Housekeeping (giveaway win from Suko's Notebook)


What new books did you receive?  For more Mailbox Monday posts, check out Suko's Notebook.


  1. Hi Holly,

    A great haul of books this week and from such diverse genres.

    I tried to restrict myself to adding just one of your selection to my ever growing reading list, but after checking out all the links, I just couldn't do it!

    I have discounted the two non fiction books, but I am afraid the the rest of those great recommendations have all made their way to my list!

    I hope that you enjoy them all and that yourself and your family have a great New Year.


  2. Wow! You have a great "mailbox"! I'm so glad 7 Years arrived, safe and sound--enjoy! Thanks for participating in MM this week, Holly. :)

  3. I wouldn't mind saving some time and money - do share any good tips! Like the look of The Tutor's Daughter too. Have a great New Year!

  4. Thanks for participating in MM this week, Yvonne! I'm glad you've been enjoying this author's work.

  5. Such a nice mix of books. Enjoy them all. The very best to you for 2013.

  6. You have some great titles on your stack! Enjoy! And have a fabulous New Year.


  7. I've heard good things about 7 Years Younger. Enjoy all your new books!

  8. Holly, hoping you enjoy all of your new books, and that 2013 is a great year for you.

  9. Oh, you got the new Julie Klassen book! I've read two of her books and really enjoyed them. I will look for your reviews. Enjoy your reading week!

  10. Thanks for stopping by my blog :)
    Banana Split looks fun!

  11. They all look so good. We must like the same genre.

    Banana Split and The Tutor's Daughter especially are catching my eye.

    Happy New Year!!

  12. Those are new books to me. I hope they are all fun reads for you!

  13. I've heard good things about Julie Klassen's books. The Tutor's Daughter is one I might have to put on my WL. Happy reading!

  14. Thanks for stopping by! I like Josi and I think I have Heat Wave in my tbr pile.

    M was EQ Pres for two+ years and with the huge inactive list we have, I think it will be harder. Sure he'll be extra busy but at least I don't have small kids.

  15. How could I not want to pick up a book titled Banana Split! 7 Years Younger was very good and is a great reference. Enjoy your books and have a Happy New Year.

  16. They all look good. I'll be interested in your thoughts on Cheaper, Better, Faster.

  17. Thanks for visiting =)
    Graet haul!
    The Tutor's Daughter was a lot of fun, as expected! I have not read anything by Newport yet, I had tried the hardest to win her book last year in a hundred different ways, and failed, so now I'm kinda mad at it, lol
    Silly me I know.

  18. Banana Split looks like a really cute one to me
