Mailbox Monday (67)

It's Oscar Sunday! But first, because it is a Sunday, I'm sharing my weekly book haul with Mailbox Monday.
Mailbox Monday
For Review from Virtual Author Book Tours
Comfort of Fences by Stacy Overman Morrison
This is a chick-lit type book about a woman's relationship with her daughter and best friend. The author also sent me a ton of book swag, of which only a small sampling is pictured in the photo.

From Paperback Swap
Spring Break by Katherine Applegate
Last summer I read the first in this series. It may not have been amazing, but I already own the next in the series, so I figured I'd request this to complete it. And again, while it isn't the best, it is pretty perfect to read on the beach.

Also, I'm currently a finalist for The Bookish Babe, or Best Book Blog at My So-Called Chaos. Voting closes today, and I would be incredibly appreciative if you have the time to vote for me.

Are you planning on watching the Oscars tonight? And what books did you add to your shelves this week?


  1. Those sound like good reads - I devoured most of a book this weekend - always feels good to get lost in a book.

    SO excited for the oscars (-:

  2. 4 audios added! yay - 2 Carola Dunn mysteries, 1 Abigail Reynolds Jane Austen variation and Sandra Lee Smith's contemp w coast romance... great stuff !

    HapPy reading and best on the awards !!

  3. I was confused when I first read your post, because Oscars have always been on Monday mornings for me! LOL! Very happy that Cate Blanchett and Catherine Martin won.
    Happy reading!

  4. I voted for you. Enjoy your new books!

  5. I will vote for you. Heading there after I post this comment.

    My book club is to decide if they want to read Comfort of Fences. We haven't met for the past two months so haven't discussed it yet.

    Have a great day, and good luck in the contest.

  6. Congratulations on being a finalist!

    Comfort of Fences sounds good, I love books about relationships between female family members or friends. Love the cover too!

  7. I enjoyed the Oscars this year...and I think Ellen, as the host, had a lot to do with that. She has such a relaxed style and her humor is about the unexpected things.

    Congrats on your nomination...good luck!

    Your books look good, too. Enjoy! Here's MY WEEKLY SUNDAY/MONDAY UPDATES

  8. Both of them look like really fun, relaxed reads! I hope you enjoy them and I do love myself some bookswag as well! ;) I agree with Laurel above, Ellen absolutely made this year's show a succes!
    Thanks for sharing :) I hope you have a great week!
