Mailbox Monday from my Secret Santa!


Thanks to Marcia of The Printed Page for hosting the Mailbox Monday Meme that has us list the books that we received last week. You can go to her blog to see what everyone else got last week or to play along.  This week I thought I would share what I received from my Secret Santa since I didn't open the gifts until Christmas morning.

I am so glad that I participated in the Book Blogger Holiday Swap again this year.  I always look forward to events like this as they are a great opportunity to find new blogs that I wasn't aware of before.  And it happened again!  This year my Secret Santa was Sharla from Winter Write, and if she is new to you, you should really go check out her awesome blog!  The following books have been on my wishlist for quite some time and thanks to Sharla they are now on my shelf!




Thanks so much Sharla and I can't wait until I can dive into these books!

Here are a couple of other books that I received from my family:



From my loving husband I received Hotel on the Corner of Bitter and Sweet by Jamie Ford


My wonderful son gave me The Story of Edgar Sawtelle by David Wroblewski

I think that is a pretty good haul for Christmas!  So what was in your mailbox?

Jo-Jo-I hope you enjoy M. Moran's books as much as I have-she is one of my favorite authors.

I just bought The Hotel on the Corner of Bitter Sweet.

Thank you Thank You-I just opened up my present-as I just arrived back home. I adore it. Most of my tree is Snowman ornaments-so this is a great addition to my snowman collection.

How is your grandma?
