Mailbox Monday (121)

So I'm averaging about one Mailbox Monday post a month, which is part of the reason my mailbox is so big. I haven't actually picked up that many books at once, but more that one or two each week and they just kind of add up. As for the books, well...
Mailbox Monday
From Paperback Swap
The Mischief of the Mistletoe by Lauren Willig
I just love this series! I've actually started and almost finished this one, and it's just as good as the others. It may be a tiny bit too early to be reading Christmas books, but I'm loving it just the same!

For Review from the Published
Hidden Inheritance by Heidi B. Neumark
This is a memior with a similar topic as Between Gods. Knowing how much I loved reading that book it seems likely I'd enjoy this one as well.

Alienated by Melissa Landers
This was our book club book of the month. Just to show you how behind this post really is, I've already read and reviewed it. I wasn't necessarily a huge fan of it, but it did have its moments.

The Martian by Andy Weir
This was a gift from my dad for my birthday. I actually saw the movie (for my birthday as well!) and really enjoyed it. Given all the positive things I've read about this book I have high hopes for it.

The Night Before Halloween by Natasha Wing
This was a gift from my MIL to Elley. We actually read it a few times before Halloween. It's a cute book where they show both monsters and kids are getting ready for the holiday, but then the monsters are disappointed when the kids are scared and won't party with them.

From PJ Library
Bim1 Sings the Baby by Linda Glaser
Another adorable book from PJ Library! The baby in this book celebrates Shabbat with all types of rituals like giving tzadakah, lighting candles, and eating challah.

What did you find in your mailbox this week?


  1. I just picked up my copy of The Martian!

  2. I just got The Martian in a book swap a couple of weeks ago! Can't wait!

    I got Caleb The Night Before Halloween from the library and I loved it. So cute!

  3. I liked The Martian book and the movie. Hope you enjoy reading it after seeing the film. I read The Night Before Halloween to my own kid (many years ago!) It's a cute one. The Mischief of the Mistletoe sounds fantastic. Have a great week!

  4. I still haven't read The Martian and a friend lent it to me when it first came out. At this point, I plan to see the movie first - maybe today.

  5. Your books look good...I'm curious about Hidden Inheritance. Enjoy! Here are MY WEEKLY UPDATES

  6. ENJOY!!

    The Martian book is everywhere.

    Have a great reading week.
