Mailbox Monday!

Well Chuck, what's in our mailbox today?

For some reason I feel like singing a jingle when I do Mailbox Mondays (a weekly meme hosted by Marcia at the Printed Page). You know...jazz hands...bells ringing....whistling birds or something. Maybe it's just the sickness still wearing off! Ha!

Anyhoo, I did have a few gems come my way last week. Hooray!

ARCS I received from the fabulous Simon and Schuster (love them!):
The Secret of Joy by Melissa Senate
Dogtown: Death and Enchantment in a New England Ghost Town by Elyssa East

Review Copy I received from the author:
After the Ball: A Woman's Tale of Reclaiming Happily Ever After by Barb Greenberg

The Magician's Elephant by Kate DiCamillo (review on previous post)
(Rose Path Press)

I have a busy week ahead of me to catch up for the few days I didn't read while I was sick last week.

Happy Reading!

Wasn't there a Blues Clues song about getting mail?

After the Ball sounded interesting but I choose not to get the ARC. I'm looking forward to your review, though.

(Sorry about the delete, I hate when I make spelling mistakes :-) )

Wow! You have some awesome books there! Happy reading!

I don't remember Blues Clues having a song but I swear Pee Wee Herman had a song.

Nice mailbox list, I am particularly interested in The Magician's Elephant. I've seen the book around but haven't read a review yet. I look forward to reading your thoughts on it.
