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

Mailbox Monday (started at The Printed Page and now a traveling meme) is at Lori’s Reading Corner this month and is the gathering place for readers to share the books that came into their house last week (checked out library books don’t count, eBooks & audio books do). Warning: Mailbox Monday can lead to envy, toppling TBR piles and humongous wish lists.

Boy, it's been a while since I've done this and I've got plenty of things to catch up on. December is always so hectic than when the holidays are over I just veg out and have a hard time getting back into the rhythm of ... everything. I did get some goodies in the last month that were mostly ebooks. Even with the hundreds I already have I still can't resist some of the free ones but I've cut way back! Here's some of what I got recently. I hope Santa brought you plenty of good books too!

  1. I saw From Notting Hill With Love Actually on goodreads a while back and actually fell in love with the title. No idea if the book itself is any goods, but with such I cute title I want to read it no matter what.

    1. I liked the title too, and the cover! It was a free ebook from B&N so I had to get it. Hopefully it's still free!

  11. I am soooo jealous that you have the ARC of Scarlet. I loved Cinder and look forward to reading Scarlet at some point too.
