Mailbox Monday (87)

It's hard to believe summer is almost over, especially since growing up in California we didn't really go back to school till around Labor Day. But here in Louisiana, several schools started this past week and the rest will have their first day tomorrow. Which of course means no more summer-y traffic-free days. But back to the point at hand, which for the seemingly last time this summer, I'm linking up with Mailbox Monday.

For Review from TLC Books Tours
Vintage by Susan Gloss
I know several bloggers who have fallen in love with this one, so I hope it's the same with me. And while it is a chick lit type, it doesn't look especially summer-y, so hopefully it's the perfect book to bring in the fall.

The Hello Kitty Baking Book by Michele Chen Chock
This one was too adorable to pass up. Looking through it, I'm not too sure on the recipes, but I am curious about the Hello Kitty Jack-o-Lantern Spice Cookies and the Red Apple Cupcakes. Now I just need to make time this fall to try them out!

Well Read, Then Dead by Terrie Farley Moran
I've never actually read a cozy mystery, but they seem to be a lot of fun to me. Plus it's a mystery involving food and books, which you can probably guess from this post, are up there in my world. I'm sure if this is one I enjoy I'll be turning to cozy mysteries far more often.

What did you find in your mailbox this week?


  1. I haven't heard of Vintage. I look forward to hearing your thoughts.

  2. Vintage looks so good...and so does the cozy mystery. Enjoy! And thanks for sharing.


  3. The Hello Kitty baking book looks like lots of fun! Happy reading and baking :)

  4. Vintage looks and sounds good to me too!

  5. I can't wait what kinds of things you make out of the Hello Kitty cookbook!

  6. A few of the year-round schools in our area came back from break last week but the regular school year schools start up after Sept. 1st. Usually it's quite warm when the students go back but we've had a cooler than normal summer so we'll see what happens in a few weeks!
    I have Vintage on my Kindle and hope to read it someday soon.

  7. Vintage and Well Read, Then Dead look good.

    ENJOY your reading week.

    I had two books in my mailbox. I like "catch-up" weeks.
