Mailbox Monday-April 11

Thanks to Marcia of The Printed Page for starting the Mailbox Monday Meme that has us list the books that we received last week. Although Marcia isn't going to be hosting Mailbox Monday any longer, she set it up so different bloggers have the opportunity to host this meme for a month at a time. This month the host is Amy from Passages to the Past so head on over there to see what everyone else received or to play along!

Ok, here is what was in my mailbox lately:
Friendship Bread by Darien Gee

And after begging and pleading to a couple of my contacts at Random House I also received:
Dreams of Joy by Lisa See

Yes, I will admit to all of you that begging is not beneath me!  Some books I don't have a problem with sitting back and just waiting for them to arrive, if they even do...but with Lisa See that is just not an option!

I hope you enjoy Dreams of Joy, it isn't one I have heard about but I do love the cover.

Happy reading,
Jules

You are so brave. I have a few titles I would love to beg for but I am too chicken to do it. I do have both of these though and I think they both look wonderful!

I've got Friendship Bread too but haven't read it yet. I'll definitely be tracking down a copy of the Lisa See book.
