Since I've been on hiatus, I haven't accepted any books for review. I just barely started accepting books again, and I forgot how exciting it is to check the mail! I open up my mailbox, hoping against hope to see that little golden key. That little golden key-or the key of dreams, if you will-is the key to the separate mailbox that is just for packages. I open the package box to see a large, rectangular package waiting there just for me. I pick it up, looking down at the label, expecting to see Kate the Book Buff lovingly inscribed (or machine automated, either is acceptable :) as the addressee but then the unthinkable happens...
What's this????? I'm not the addressee??? It's a video game for my brother-in-law??? Depression quickly sets in until my sad eyes turn downcast and I see another package!!! My betrayed heart barely dares to hope that...YES! It's for me! Some lovely author/publicist has sent me a book. My day is complete and I skip merrily into the house with my precious loot.
I was lucky enough to experience this several times this week (thankfully only one time was the package for my brother-in-law, I'm not sure my fragile heart could handle that every day) and I thought I'd share my loot with you. Please let me know if you've read any of these books, or are waiting on them yourself. I'd love to hear your thoughts on each one!
