In My Mailbox (24)

Welcome to my 24 edition of In My Mailbox, hosted by The Story Siren. So let's get to the books, both of which I won through Goodreads.
In My Mailbox
The Secret Room by Beth Kanell
I normally try to avoid requesting self-published books but this is one that jumped out to me regardless of who it was published by. It's a YA book, where I girl finds a hidden room in her home, and uncovers the history behind in and its past. It reminded me of some of my favorite YA books growing up (specifically Time Windows by Kathryn Reiss if anyone remembers that one). I'm not completely sure what to expect with this, but I'm hoping it lives up to my expectations.

Life is Not a Stage by Florence Henderson with Joel Brokaw
I always enjoy reading memoir, and everytime I see a celebrity memoir I also think they'd be fun to read. But I never actually go out and buy celebrity memoirs, which is why I'm so excited to read Mrs. Brady's memmoir. I'm hoping this one sparks a live of celebrity memoirs, because there's a ton out there that I think I'd love.

Are you a fan of celebrity memoirs? Do you have a favorite you think I should read? And what's in your mailbox this week?


  1. I started reading the Florence Henderson novel, but my mom wanted to read it more. She loved it! I'll have to pick it up again one day. I hope you enjoy your new books.


  2. Nice you won 2 books from goodreads!! I don't have a fav celeb memoire, but I did use to read every nonfiction book I could get my hands about Diana, Princess of Wales growing up. :)

    My IMM:
    I missed a couple of weeks so the list isn't usual.

  3. I have to admit that I really want to read the Florence Henderson memoir too! My secret reading this summer was the Melissa Gilbert and Alison Angrim memoirs - I couldn't resist Laura Ingalls and Nellie Olson!

    Happ reading!

  4. Enjoy your books! I like celebrity memoirs, but I only like to read them once in a while. Too much drama for regular intake. :)

  5. I haven't read a memoir in a few years, but I used to read a lot of them. For some reason, when I was in high school, I'd read memoirs about people I had no idea who they were. I don't know why.

  6. The last memoir I read was Angela Ashe's. Nice selection. Sounds like an interesting story, I loved her on television.

  7. You know, I don't think I've ever read a celebrity memoir. I wonder why that is? At any rate, nice IMM.

  8. I love the look of The Secret Room! It sounds brilliant. Happy reading!
