Mailbox Monday ~ March 9th

March 8, 2009

sb10067729n-003If you’re new to Mailbox Monday welcome! Thank you to everyone who stops by Mailbox Monday. Whether you comment or visit I appreciate your taking the time to drop in.

My vacation didn’t quite turn out as planned. We had a great time except for the eventful Friday night when another driver decided to get a little too up close and personal with my SUV and a Las Vegas city bus. But the bright spot was returning home to find a book bonanza from Miriam at Hachette Books. She totally knows how to make a book junkie’s day.

Action/thriller/suspense ~ย The First Family by David Baldacci (favorite author)

Action/thriller/suspense ~ The Scarecrow by Michael Connelly (favorite author)

Horror/suspense ~ Afraid by Jack Kilbornย (new-to-me author)

Horror/suspense ~ Angel of Wrath by Bill Myers (new-to-me author)

Horror/suspense ~ The BoneMan’s Daughters by Ted Dekker (new-to-me author)

    Not sure what happened to my comment – so hope this doesn’t post twice! I will be reading The BoneMan’s Daughters soon also. The Scarecrow also looks good!

    My post is here.

    I hope the damage was minor. At least you have some good escapist material there to take your mind off it. I’ve read some of Connelly’s books, he’s usually pretty good. Happy reading. Here’s my MM post:

    I’ve got plenty of books, but I’m just a wee bit jealous that you got The Scarecrow! Here’s my post. Thanks for hosting this fun meme.

    Oh, car accidents are no fun, especially on vacation! Hope everything is all right.

    Ted Dekker is one of my favorites – I hope you enjoy Boneman’s Daughter!

    My mailbox is up here.

  19. March 9, 2009 7:24 am

    I’ve heard a lot about Dekker’s work recently. Can’t wait to see what you think of it. Happy Reading!

  20. March 9, 2009 8:25 am

    I enjoy Ted Dekker’s books – but I haven’t read that one. Here’s my Mailbox Monday:

    Hope you enjoy your new books! I’ve been meaning to read some of David Baldacci’s work. I think I would really enjoy his books.

  27. March 9, 2009 10:38 am

    I had two new books this week, one for young readers and one picture book … takes the pressure off me a bit, as the kids are already racing thru them.

    >a href= “http://www.sheistoofondofbooks.com/2009/03/09/mailbox-monday-march-9-2009/”>Here’s my list!

    Lots of suspense came to your house last week! ๐Ÿ˜‰

    Here’s my Mailbox! ~ Wendi

    It’s been a few Mondays since I’ve been able to do this, but it’s finally up: Mailbox Monday: Zombies! Woohoo!

    On another note, I’m curious to see what you think about Afraid. From the synopsis on Amazon, it looks like it’s something I’d be interested in reading. Got the feeling it might be something like The Relic. ๐Ÿ˜€

  32. March 9, 2009 11:45 am

    Marcia, so sorry to hear about your accident. Hope everything is OK. Glad to see you had books waiting for you. They all sound great!

    I forgot to post here earlier. I didn’t get a lot last week (I’m behind anyway) but I got some goodies! Here is my list. Have a great weekend everyone!

    Love your new mailbox picture. ๐Ÿ™‚ Nothing in my mailbox this week so no corresponding post. ::sigh:: But it gives me more time to post the backlog of reviews, right?!

  37. March 9, 2009 1:34 pm

    Sorry to hear about the accident Marcia. Hope there wasn’t a lot of damage. Of course any damage is too much in my world.

  38. March 9, 2009 8:52 pm

    Marcia, hope your SUV wasn’t banged up. Happy everyone is well.
    What a great haul you had this past week. Sooo want the Ted Dekker book. Lucky you : ). Which book are you itching to read first?

  39. March 10, 2009 9:04 am

    Marcia..Looks like you have a thrilling (lol) week of reading coming up.
    The Bone Daughter I’ve been reading so much about. Please let us know.
    Sorry I’m late with my post this week…too much going on.
