In My Mailbox - 30 & Sunday Post - 21

In My Mailbox is a weekly post hosted by Kristi at The Story Siren where bloggers can discuss the books we got in the mail this week.

I've successfully made it through one week without receiving any new books. It wasn't really done on purpose. I have been a wee bit stressed out with my TBR pile that's actually in my possession. But, I didn't intentionally not get any books this week. Either way, I'm satisfied.

The Sunday Post is a weekly meme hosted by Kimba @ The Caffeinated Book Reviewer ~this meme was inspired in part by ~ In My Mailbox~ It's a chance to share News. A post to recap the past week, showcase books and things we have received and share news about what is coming up for the week on our blog.

Because I already participate in the In My Mailbox meme (above), I'm just going to use this one as way to recap my week.


Monday: Review of Covet (The Clann, # 2) by Melissa Darnell (4 Stars)

Tuesday: Top 10 Books/Authors I'm Thankful For

Wednesday: Waiting on Walking Disaster

Thursday: Review of Made to Crave by Lysa TerKeurst (5 Stars)

Friday: I'm participating in the Black Friday Book Bonanza Blog Hop Giveaway. Giveaway ends tonight at midnight. Be sure to enter for a chance to win a $15.00 Amazon or Barnes & Noble Gift Card.

Between being off work for two days, traveling and spending time with family I don't get to see enough, great food, good music, decorating for Christmas, cleaning for a party I'm having next week, and the blog...this has been one great week. Thanksgiving has always been one of my favorite holidays (really Halloween all the way through New Years), and this year was no different. I got to see my Nanny and Papa and other family. Also, I don't do Black Friday shopping in the traditional sense, but I did get my entire side of the family bought for from the comfort of my couch and laptop, only my husband's side of the family left to buy for--they're slow with their wish lists.

And one of the most surprising things this week has been the participating in my Black Friday Book Bonanza Blog Hop Giveaway. I can't believe I've never participated in a Blog Hop Giveaway before now and after seeing the participation, I'll definitely have my radar out for more of them to come. Thank you guys so much for participating, for following, for commenting. You guys rock!!!


Monday: Review of Undeadly by Michele Vail

Tuesday: Top 10 Most Anticipated Books of 2013

Wednesday: Waiting on Wednesday

Thursday: Review of Twisted Window by Lois Duncan

Friday: I'm debating on participating in Feature & Follow. What do you guys think? Would that be too much? Does anyone participate in that one? Any thoughts on it? Let me know!

That's it for my mailbox and recaps of my past and upcoming week. What did you get in your mailbox this week? Any bookish news you want to talk about? Let me know!


  1. I'm glad you had a great time during your Thanksgiving and way to go with getting most of your shopping done! I tried but no one has given any hints whatsoever about what they want, lol. I'm looking forward to seeing what you think about Undeadly.
    Thank you for stopping by and I hope you have a great week!

  2. So glad you've had a great week! This is my favorite time of year as well...we're still riding the Thanksgiving high...I'll start my Christmas decorating next Sat on Dec 1st. Still feels to early for me!

    Thanks for stopping by my Added to the Bookshelf post!

    1. It actually feels early to decorate to me too, but I'm having a Christmas Pinterest Party on December 1st, so I had to decorate before then. :) Thanks for stopping by and commenting!

  3. Thank you for stopping by... Glad you had a happy Thanksgiving. Not really looking forward to all the crowds for Christmas shopping. Ugh... Luckily we do a lot of it online. My TBR is Have a great week.

  4. I'm glad you are enjoying the Black Friday Hop! That makes me happy :) And really, sometimes we just need those weeks when we don't add to the TBR, mine is frightening... I hope your holiday season continues to go well! Book Savvy Babe

  5. I am with you on shopping from the couch, coffee in hand and my pj's. So glad you had such a wonderful week, and a week without books once in awhile is a darn good thing *eyes TBR pike* LOL The Sunday Post

  6. I'm just pulling out my decorations to start making it look like Christmas in my home & yard. I've never started this early before, but I'm super excited this year for some reason.

  7. Ha -- we need to have a book event called "My TBR Pile is Worse Than Your TBR Pile."
    I think we all think we have the worst one. I put three books on my nightstand and hide the rest in a closet.
    Thanks for stopping by!

  8. Never done the feature meme but peeps sure seem to like it

  9. Thanks so much for the comment and the follow! Yeah, Cinder was pretty good and I'll be writing the review soon. Ooh, I'm waiting on Walking Disaster too! I just read some snippets on goodreads and I remembered how much I love Travis! I really hope McGuire makes it good.

  10. I feel as if my TBR pile is beginning to become overwhelming as well. Hopefully you get through quite a few books. :)

    Krystianna @ Downright Dystopian

  11. I really like your recap & this meme! :) Thanks so much for stopping by my blog! :)

  12. Thanks for stopping by my IMM! I need a week off from new books, but I always find something good! I usually do the Feature and Follow from Parajunkee/Alison Can Read on Fridays. I've met a ton of great bloggers through it.

  13. Whoa! No new books this week? Wow. I'm always bringing new things home, but my excuse is that I work in a library. I'm surrounded by free books all day. :) Besides I'm helping circulation.

  14. Thanks for the post! I look forward to stopping by later this week!

  15. I find no-books-weeks are helpful for catching up on the TBR pile. Best of luck and happy reading! (:

  16. No Books?? Actually, that's awesome! Congrats on your accidental no books, because man, it can be hard to catch up sometimes! I hope you enjoy your pickage! (:

    Thanks for stopping by! (:

  17. Sometimes it's nice to just catch up on reading and have no deadlines to worry about (:
    I'm excited to see Top 10 Most Anticipated Books of 2013. There's definitely a few I'm excited for in 2013 haha
    Thanks for visiting Bookmunchies!
