For Review:  

Close to His Heart by Leonora Pruner---look for my review and giveaways around August 23rd---I'm going to be on a blog tour for this one.

From the Library:

The Passage by Justin Cronin---everyone's talking about this one so I need to see what all the fuss is about.

Water for Elephants by Sara Gruen---I can't believe I haven't read this one yet.

Her Mother's Hope by Francine Rivers---I didn't know Rivers had a new book out and I dropped everything to read this one!  And the best thing is that it's the first in a duet!

Evernight by Claudia Gray---because I love a good vampire boarding school tale.


One Foot in the Grave (Night Huntress #2) by Jeaniene Frost---because the Halfway to the Grave (Night Huntress #1) ends with such a cliff-hanger not reading book two is not an option!

Father Mine: Zsadist and Bella's Story by JR Ward (Black Dagger Brotherhood #6.5)---I just found out about this novella and immediately downloaded it to my Nook.  So exciting!

What's in your mailbox this week?


  1. You got some good books this week. I'm sure you'll enjoy Water for Elephants - it's lovely! :-)

  2. omg the passage i so want that, it'll probably come out in my library in 10 years time oh the joy! humph! hope you feel better hun, enjoy the lovelies my dear! :)

  3. I really like the Evernight series. There's a pretty cool twist half way though the first novel that really shocked me. Hopefully things haven't been spoiled for you because the twist is pretty awesome haha. Happy reading! :D

  4. Oh Em Gee, how huge is The Passage! I think I might have to drop it from my reading stack, way too long!

  5. Great books! Enjoy reading them.
    My first IMM post-

  6. I heard Water for Elephants is being turned onto a movie. I always like to read the books before I see the movies.

  7. I've not heard of Francine River before, but now that you have raved, I'll have to check her out!

    Have a great week!

  8. Looks like some good reads you got there!!! I hope that you enjoy them!!!

    Feel free to check out my Mailbox

    Happy Reading!

  9. Those are some great books! Have fun reading them all, and I look forward to the reviews :)

  10. Super cute site! Thanks for stopping by blog. One Foot in the Grave looks good. But I'll have to check out Book 1 first. I really need to see what all the fuss is about regarding The Passage too. LOL

  11. Miss Hildreth Wore Brown---Anecdotes of a Southern Belle Sounds interesting. Happy Reading!

  12. Yum is most certainly the only way to describe Bones and that entire series. The spinoff isn't quite as good, but still really enjoyable. I love Jeaniene Frost, can't wait to see how you like the next 2 books!

  13. I haven't read Water for Elephants either! It's been sitting on my bookshelf since last year but there always ends up being something else I want to read first.
