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 Mailbox Monday! Thanks to Marcia at The Printed Page for hosting each week. Stop by and leave a link to what came in your mail.

Love You, Miss You, Hate You
Elizabeth Scott

Won from The Book Butterfly

It's been seventy-five days and Amy is sick of her parents suddenly taking an interest in her. And she's really sick of people asking her about Julia. Julia is gone now and she doesn't want to talk about it. They wouldn't understand what it feels like to have your best friend ripped away from you. They wouldn't understand what it feels like to know it's your fault. Amy's Shrink thinks it would help to start a diary but she starts writing letters to Julia instead. As she writes letter after letter, she begins to realize that the past wasn't as perfect as she thought it was and the future deserves a chance too.

Bleak History
John Shirley

Won from Drey's Library

Talking to the dead gives Gabriel Bleak an edge to survive as a bounty hunter, or "skip tracer", in the psychic minefield of New York City. Unfortunately his gift also makes him a prime target. A top-secret division of Homeland Security knows that if they control Gabriel, they'll gain access to the entity-based energy field that connects all life on Earth. But Gabrielle has other ideas and with a growing underground movement and an alliance of spirits, elementals and other beings, Gabriel's about to face the greatest demonic uprising since the Dark Ages.


  1. Both look good, I've heard great things about the Elizabeth Scott novel. Happy reading :-)
    Here's my mailbox

  2. That first one looks like it would be gut-wrenching! Enjoy your books.

  3. Love you Miss you sounds really good. I like letter format books.

    Here is my Monday post

  4. Love you, etc. sort of looks like my daughter's life right now. She's 14, that time when everything seems magnified beyond all proportion, and her best friends mom moved her from California to Florida. It's been a few months, but my girl is still having trouble adjusting. I might get this book and read it. Maybe I could suggest it to her to read.
