Mailbox Monday – June 1

Spread the love

Here’s what’s come in the past two weeks both through the mailbox and when I went book shopping. Last week I got 9 books which is the most I’ve ever got in one week!

See what others got this week at The Printed Page.

In the mailbox two weeks ago:

Circle of Friends Book III: James by L. Diane Wolfe
This is a review copy I got from the author. It will be released by Dancing Lemur Press, L.L.C. August 2009. It’s YA fiction and is part of a series.

The Story Sisters by Alice Hoffman
I am so excited about this one. My favourite author! It’s long compared to what I normally read but I think I’ll be okay since it’s Alice Hoffman! Thanks to Shaye Areheart Books which is a imprint of Crown Publishing which is a divsion of Random House. Phew! (Due out June 2/09)

Finding Anyone, Anywhere, Anywhen by Noel Montgomery Elliot

A cold request from Firefly Books. It’s a Genealogy book that focus on using the internet to do research. It not only talks about what’s available now but what will be available in the future and has an extensive World Wide Web Directory with websites in more than 200 countries and websites pertaining to religious and ethnic groups.

Via the bookbag (bought at thrift and discount stores):

Man of Steel: The Career and Courage of Christopher Reeve by Adrian Havill (1996)
BackTalk: 4 Steps to Ending Rude Behaviour in Your Kids (1998)
Raising a Daughter *Revised* by Jeanne Elium & Don Elium (2003)
Barron’s Spanish Visual Language Guide (2001)
Love Juice by Donna Exeter
(Erotica) If I like it, I’ll try for the Erotica Reading Challenge

In the mailbox last week:

Do the Web Write: Writing for and Marketing Your Website by Dan Furman (with CD-ROM) AND
Writing for the Web by Crawford Kilian

I got these both from Self-Counsel Press and they’re about just what they say.

The End of Overeating by David A. Kessler, MD

This is supposed to be like Stuffed (which I haven’t reviewed yet) but for all of North America and is from McClelland and Stewart.

The G Free Diet: A Gluten-Free Survival Guide by Elisabeth Hasselbeck
From Center Street at Hachette, there will be a giveaway to go with it.

Two to Six: A Sex Offender’s Story by James P. Cornelio

From Bostick Communications. I know this is the type of book many of you would never read. The author was arrested and charged with crimes alleging child sexual abuse. This is his story of how he copes with those charges and seeks to uncover the truth about his crime, his life and himself. As the back of the book states: “Only you can decide if he does so with the searing honesty such a quest demands.”

The Shifter by Janice Hardy (The Healing Wars: Book 1)
From Balzer + Bray, an Imprint of HarperCollinsChildren. It’s an ARC for ages 10 and up. I suppose it’s fantasy.

Secret Society by Tom Dolby

From HarperTeen. It’s also an ARC, YA obviouslly and about just what it says, a secret society.

invisible i (The Amanda Project) by Stella Lennon

From HarperTeen. It’s also an ARC, YA and is about a girl named Amanda who disappears and when her friends try to find her, they find out that Amanda isn’t exactly who they thought she was. The above three were surprises!

The NDD Book by William Sears, MD

From Little, Brown from Hachette, there will also be a giveaway attached to this one. It’s about Nutrition Deficit Disorder, how it affects your child and what you can do about it – without drugs.
