(This is a scheduled post. I am taking a day off today as it is a public holiday.)

Mailbox Monday is hosted by Marcia from The Printed Page.

I received the following books last week:

1) Alex & Me: How a Scientist and a Parrot Discovered a Hidden World of Animal Intelligence--and Formed a Deep Bond in the Process by Irene M. Pepperberg (a giveaway win from Jennifer)

2) The Promised World by Lisa Tucker (Thanks to Wendy!)

3) Waiting for You by Susane Colasanti (bought from The Book Depository)

4) Dreaming Anastasia by Joy Preble (bought from The Book Depository)



So what books came into your house last week?

    I think the book blogging community is suffering from a collective hangover. I just got back from vacation, so I feel I need to do some catch up. I had some library books waiting for me when I got home, but other than that, it has been quiet!

    Happy public holiday, Melody! I hope you enjoy your day off from work to spent with your family!

    And great list of books. I hope you enjoy them as much when you brought them. :)

    Nice group of books and I love the covers (I'm so shallow!). Good job on taking a day off from blogging and enjoying your holiday.

    Thanks, everyone! I had a wonderful weekend (and public holiday!). I'm still trying to catch up on my blog reading. Wish me luck! :P

    Monday was a public holiday for us too. And today. Hehe...

    Great books, Melody! They all look familiar to me although I don't own any of them.


  13. Violet Says:

    Dreaming Anastasia looks pretty everytime I see it, all the books look good.

    Looks like Lisa Tucker is everywhere lately...

    We had a holiday on Monday too :)

    I've been wanting to read Alex and Me. Keeping an eye out for what you'll have to say about it!


  15. Iliana Says:

    Isn't that cover for the Dreaming Anastasia book pretty? Hope you had a wonderful day off, Melody!


  16. Melody Says:

    Alice, Violet, Jeane & Iliana - Thanks, ladies! I'm hoping to see more new acquisitions from you all soon! :P

    I really want to read Dreaming Anastasia and Alex & Me (my mom had an African Grey for years, he wasn't the nicest bird always but he was plenty entertaining!)

    The only book that came into my house this week was My Soul to Take by Rachel Vincent. So excited about reading that, and the author even autographed it for me!

    Jen - I love autographed books!! :D
