Mailbox Monday (93)

It's kind of funny seeing I'm so close to my 100th Mailbox Monday post, and yet realizing if I post every single week, by the time I get there I'll be only a few weeks away from having a baby. Funny how one thing can seem so far away, but another the same distance away feels so close. But till then, here's this week's addition where I'm linking up the new books I've brought into our home.
Mailbox Monday
Borrowed from a Friend
The Rithmatist by Brandon Sanderson
The boy is a huge fan of Sanderson, although doesn't normally read his YA books. Which is funny in a way, since he claims to have read this one. Except I don't ever remember seeing it in the house, nor did he offer it to me. But at least I have a friend who did lend me a copy so I can see what he's all about.

For Review from TLC Book Tours
This Dark Road to Mercy by Wiley Cash
This is actually the last book I'm going to be reviewing before the baby arrives. I know I'm going to need to cut back significantly on reading after the baby arrives, and wanting to spend the last few months before that trying to whittle down my to-read pile. But knowing how much I enjoyed Wiley Cash's last book I'm excited to have this as my last review book, at least last review for the time being.

My Baby Book by Amy Krouse Rosenthal
I've spent a lot of time looking through baby books and picked this one since it's a lot more fact than feeling based, which works for me. I've already starting filling parts of it out, and while I realize it likely won't get 100% complete, I'm hoping to have fun with what does get written in it.

What did you find in your mailbox this week?


  1. The Rithmatist by Brandon Sanderson sounds like a book my granddaughter would like! Enjoy all your books!

  2. Hi Shoshanah,

    I just hope that your last review copy is going to be a good book for you, it certainly sounds like it. Wiley Cash is an author I have read a lot about on other blogs, but have yet to try any of his books for myself.

    I am sure that you will be able to make a little time for reading and blogging once you get into a routine with the new baby, it will probably be something you look forward to, to keep you sane!

    The very best of luck with the next few weeks and take some well earned rest time, with a good book, of course!


  3. Love the Baby Book! Enjoy your last reads before the baby and I hope he/she is a good sleeper so you can sneak in some reading time :)

  4. I hope you love This Dark Road to Mercy!

  5. I loved This Dark Road to Mercy...hope you do, too; and I recall that after my first baby, most of the books I read were about parenting. But I enjoyed them. Have a great week!

  6. I loved This Dark Road to Mercy...I hope you enjoy it as well.

    ENJOY your baby book, and I hope you are having a good pregnancy. Read now because the baby will take up quite a bit of your reading time. :)

  7. The Wiley Cash book looks great! I like the look of The Baby Book- have fun filling it in :)

  8. Have fun with the baby book. Now that my kids are having babies they're very interested in the stats recorded in their own baby books :)

  9. Enjoy My Baby Book. I loved books like that when I was pregnant. Hope you're feeling great!

  10. Aren't baby books fun to pick out?! And I often read while I was nursing or rocking a sleeping baby. (Paperback books only, of course!)

  11. I'm not familiar with The Dark Road to Mercy. Enjoy!
