Mailbox Monday (34)

Mailbox Monday is a gathering place for bloggers to share the books they've recently picked up. It was started by Marcia who now blogs at To Be Continued. Mailbox Monday travels every month, and since we're starting June, we're linking up at Dolce Bellezza for the next few weeks.
Mailbox Monday
From Paperback Swap
The Deception of the Emerald Ring by Laure Willig
Last week I wrote how I had started using my mom's account after her death. Then I shared a book off her wish list, this time it's a book I added. This was the first book I requested, and lucky for me a copy was available. (I've since learned that isn't always the case.) But I figured it was a perfect one for me to add, since my mom was the one who got me started on this series since she loved them. I've always planned on continuing it, but considering, I want to even more now.

What did you find in your mailbox this week? Or for whatever reason, have you started a series based on someone's recommendation and found that you were the only one still reading it?


  1. Sounds like an interesting book. Enjoy!

  2. It's so wonderful that your mom left a wish list; there's a tiny piece that you can refer to which must be wonderful. I am new to this series so thanks for posting about it. Glad it came to your mailbox!

  3. Been meaning to continue reading this series after reading the first one. The second one is sitting in my tbr pile. For me, my reading mood is what determines what gets read.

  4. Hi Shoshanah,

    I am so glad that you decided to carry on using your mother's Paperback Swap account and that your first request was so successful. Hopefully this will now give you the confidence to carry on with your requests and I hope that you get to enjoy the swapping experience as much as your mum did.

    Enjoy your book and have a good week.


  5. It's like an ongoing gift from your mom. Enjoy! This book looks lovely.


  6. That's so sweet - hope you enjoy it.

  7. I love that you did that! I bet your mom would get a kick out of it. Makes me want to read something off my mom's goodreads TBR. Happy reading :)

  8. I have the Willig series on my TBR too.. I hope you enjoy it. Love your blog description, very cool. Here's my Memes post.

  9. This looks interesting; I'm going to have to look up this series! I hope you enjoy!

  10. Glad you got the title you requested. Sometimes you have to wait for sometime to get the one you want. Makes them special. Enjoy!

  11. This looks good....ENJOY!!!

    I didn't post a Mailbox Monday this week. I am not home yet. Will be heading home tomorrow from the BEA. I am just checking out everyone's mailboxes. :)

    I do have a review of THE TIME BETWEEN by Karen White posted this morning.
