Mailbox Monday (122)

It's Monday, and I'm actually here posting my Mailbox Monday update sharing the books I've recently brought into my house.
Mailbox Monday
Borrowed From a Friend
Room by Emma Donoghue
I've actually already read this one (review to come later this week), and it's one that lives up to the hype. I feel like it's so old that I'm the last to read it, but in case it's on you haven't heard of it, it's told from the point of view of a 5-year-old boy whose mother was kidnapped and he was born in captivity. It's unlike another book I've read, and I know it isn't one I'll forget.

Shopaholic to the Rescue by Sophie Kinsella
Yet another book I've already read (and reviewed). You can tell how behind I am in getting this post up! While this book is completely different from Room it's still one I really enjoyed in a completely opposite way.

For Review from the Publisher
If Only in My Dreams by Mariah Stewart
This one I haven't actually read yet! Although I have read several other by Mariah Stewart. This novella was originally part of an anthology that's now being released a standalone. It was actually released today and with December starting tomorrow it looks like the perfect time to start this holiday story!

What did you find in your mailbox this week?


  1. Room is just so powerful! The movie was phenomenal too!!

  2. I still haven't read Room. I would love to read Shopaholic to the Rescue!

  3. I really liked Room and kind of want to see the movie! I haven't bought any books for myself lately but I have bought a bunch for my nieces and nephews for Christmas!

  4. I've had Room since it was first published and still haven't read it.
    Have a great week!

  5. Since it's Christmas Day, I now have time to catch up on my blog reading! Ha!

    I LOVED Room and you are so right that it has stuck with me even though I read it probably five years ago.
