Life should not be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in an attractive and well preserved body, but rather to skid in sideways, chocolate in one hand, martini in the other, totally worn out and screaming,
"WOO HOO, what a ride!"

Mailbox Monday

It's that time again! The day we share what came in the mail last week. If you would like to join the fun just leave a link where Marcia is our host. Hope the mailman brought you lots of goodies!

Dixie Divas
Virginia Brown

from LibraryThing Early Reviewers

The Divas are on the case. Wine. Chocolate. Transvestite strippers. Just another good-time get-together for the Dixie Divas of historic Holly Springs, Mississippi, where moonlight and magnolias mingle with delicious smalltown scandal. But Eureka "Trinket" Truevine, the newest Diva, gets more than she bargained for when she finds her best Diva girlfriend Bitty Hollandale's ex-husband in Bitty's hall closet. He's dead. Very dead. Now Trinket and the Divas have to help Bitty finger the murderer and clear her name.

A box of five YA books won from A Lush Budget Production (Yay!)

3 Willows
Anna Bashares

It's the summer before freshman year and a time to grow for three friends.
Polly has an idea to change a few things about herself. She wants a more glamorous life.
Jo will be at the family's beach house working and bonding with the older, cooler girls. She didn't count on a fling with a cute boy, being embarrassed by her middle school friends and her family.
Ama planned to be at an academic camp doing research in a library but ended up on a wilderness trip with flirting teens, blisters and no hair products. It's a new summer and a new sisterhood. Come grow with them.

by Cherry Cheva

Going to Yale has been Kate's dream for years. She is overworked and under-rested and falls asleep at her computer one night. She wakes up to find she has a computer generated twin. She doesn't know why she's here or how to put her back and she doesn't have time to deal with it. But is it possible that having a double could be the answer to her prayers?

Hot Mess
Julie Kraut & Shallon Lester

Emma is leaving summer in the suburbs to head to the big city for days at a fabulous internship and nights socialite-ing around town. With her best friend and her plans to give Carrie Bradshaw (Sex in the City) a run for her money she is expecting a galmourous summer. But when your only friend is boy crazy, you have a small town budget and spend 8 hours a day working for the devil on Dockers, summer is turning into one hot mess.

Tucker Shaw

A modern retelling of the play The Women, this is a quick-witted comedy about friendship, love and most important - gossip! An elite Aspen prep school sets the stage for jealousy and intrigue as the lives many girls are intertwined into a wickedly fun mess. No boys allowed!
