Mailbox Monday and In My Mailbox


Mailbox Monday, created by Marcia at The Printed Page, is on a blog tour! Last month's host was Lady Q at Let Them Read Books, and she did a fantastic job (she posted some GREAT recipes!), and Library of Clean Reads will be up next in February.

This month, Mailbox Monday is being hosted at Rose City Reader, so stop by and join the fun!

In My Mailbox is hosted by The Story Siren!

It is so much fun to see what everyone is getting in the mail.

Thanks for taking the time to visit ~ I just love hearing from you! Please let me know if you have read any of these books - I'd love to hear how you liked them!! :)

Four for my mailbox last week, and I hope you'll stop and check out my new weekly feature called Weekly ARC Expo, Bringing New Life to ARCs via an ARC Swap... here is the current one!

The Iron Queen (Harlequin Teen)The Iron Queen ARC by Julie Kagawa ~ Fiction / Teen / Sci-Fi/Fantasy  ~ Available Now ~ Received courtesy of the Publisher via Shelf Awareness
My name is Meghan Chase.

I thought it was over. That my time with the fey, the impossible choices I had to make, the sacrifices of those I loved, was behind me. But a storm is approaching, an army of Iron fey that will drag me back, kicking and screaming. Drag me away from the banished prince who's sworn to stand by my side. Drag me into the core of conflict so powerful, I'm not sure anyone can survive it.

This time, there will be no turning back.
The Life Ready Woman: Thriving in a Do-It-All WorldThe Life Ready Woman: Thriving in a Do-It-All World by Shaunti Feldhahn and Robert Lewis ~ Non-Fiction / Christian Life / Women's Issues  ~ Available Now ~ Received courtesy of the Publisher for a tour with LitFuse Publicity
Whether a stay-at-home mom or an airplane-hopping executive, a student or a senior adult, most women need a contemporary, encouraging vision for what it means to be a godly, biblically guided female in the twenty-first century. A biblical woman takes God's Word seriously not just at church but also in the everyday walk of life.

But can a significant and satisfying twenty-first-century womanhood really be defined from Scripture? One that can apply to all women and yet not be guilty of cookie-cutter sameness, pressing everyone into a common mold? One that will stay fresh even as a woman grows older? One that can guide her to the best in life? The answer is yes, and the result is a femininity without excesses and regrets that mark those who just go with the flow of the world.

In Life Ready Woman, best-selling author Shaunti Feldhahn helps readers take five faith steps drawn from the Bible that will help to define the best life possible. Each one is easy to understand, but requires bold faith to activate. The reward is being ready for the deeper life that God has planned.
Minding Ben ARC by Victoria Brown ~ Fiction / Romance/ Paranormal  ~ Available April 2011 ~ Received courtesy of the Publisher via Shelf Awareness
The Nanny Diaries meets The Help in a riveting debut novel that follows an idealistic young woman as she leaves Trinidad for a new life in New York City---as a nanny.
WordsWords by Ginny L. Yttrup ~ Fiction / Christian / General ~ Available February 2011 ~ Received courtesy of the publisher for review
"I collect words. I keep them in a box in my mind. I'd like to keep them in a real box, something pretty, maybe a shoe box covered with flowered wrapping paper. Whenever I wanted, I'd open the box and pick up the papers, reading and feeling the words all at once. Then I could hide the box. But the words are safer in my mind. There, he can't take them."

Ten-year old Kaylee Wren doesn't speak. Not since her drug-addled mother walked away, leaving her in a remote cabin nestled in the towering redwoods-in the care of a man who is as dangerous as he is evil. With silence her only refuge, Kaylee collects words she might never speak from the only memento her mother left behind: a dictionary.

Sierra Dawn is thirty-four, an artist, and alone. She has allowed the shame of her past to silence her present hopes and chooses to bury her pain by trying to control her circumstances. But on the twelfth anniversary of her daughter's death, Sierra's control begins to crumble as the God of her childhood woos her back to Himself.

Brought together by Divine design, Kaylee and Sierra will discover together the healing mercy of the Word-Jesus Christ.
