In My Mailbox

I am participating in this weekly meme hosted by The Story Siren, where we share what books we received this week.

This was a good week for receiving books in my "real" mailbox. I have been eagerly awaiting a number of books from giveaways that I have previously won, and a whole bunch arrived this week! I also won some e-books in giveaways, as well as received a number of books for review.

Woo hoo, the package from Cym Lowell arrived! I previously posted that I won a 7-book BEA Prize Package from Cym Lowell's Wednesday's Book Review Party on June 1st. The package consists of:

Bobblehead Dad: 25 Life Lessons I Forgot I Knew by Jim Higley (2 copies)
Read My Hips: How I Learned To Love My Body, Ditch Dieting, and Live Large by Kim Brittingham
The Unwanteds by Lisa McMann
Sugar in My Bowl: Real Women Write About Real Sex by Erica Jong

Since I won 2 copies of Bobblehead Dad, look for a giveaway of one copy in the near future!
