Monday Memes - Mailbox Monday, In My Mailbox, It's Monday! What Are YOU Reading? - September 26, 2011

I usually do these as separate memes, but with time shorter now, I don't get as much reading done, so I think I will start combining them!

"Mailbox Monday" is the brainchild of Marcia at The Printed Page.  Martha has closed The Printed Page effective December 18th and set up Mailbox Monday on it's own blog here:  http://mailboxmonday.wordpress.com/

September's host is Amused by Books!  October's host will be Savvy Verse and Wit (the 2011 Best Poetry Blog award winner from Book Blogger Appreciation Week!)  Hop on over, link up, and join the fun!

"In My Mailbox" is hosted by The Story Siren

Every week we'll post about what books we have that week (via your mailbox/library/store bought)! Everyone that agrees to participate will try to visit each other's list and leave comments!  Everyone is welcome to join! You can join at anytime and you DO NOT have to participate every week.

I guarantee that you will add to your reading list by visiting the participating blogs in both of these memes!>

I received one book in the mail last week:

The Perfect Suspect by Margaret Coel - WON from Kaye at Pudgy Penguin Perusals!  Thanks, Kaye!

Goodreads description:

After a candidate for governor is murdered, and his estranged wife is arrested for first-degree homicide, journalist Catherine McLeod receives a call from an anonymous woman claiming she saw the real killer leave the scene of the crime but is afraid to confide in the police. To uncover the truth, Catherine must risk her career-and her life-to find the witness who can identify the candidate's murderer: Detective Ryan Beckman.

  1. I'm glad the book arrived safe and sound. The Berkley rep is super - she gets things out quickly. Enjoy it and the week ahead!

  2. The Perfect Suspect sounds like a good mystery. Congratulations on your win!

  3. Sounds like a good thriller, enjoy!


  4. I haven't heard of this novel before, but congrats in the win & happy reading!

  5. The Perfect Suspect is good, you may want to read the first book in the series Blood Memory before you read this one unless you already have.


  6. As always impressed with what is ahead of you. New book and fingers crossed for you all the way :)

  7. I just (re)read Bridge to Terabithia this week as well. I will have to check out At Home.
    Happy Reading!

  8. Great books :)

    Have a great week,

Comments make me feel all squishy happy inside, so drop a line if you see or read something interesting! PLEASE don't leave links to your blog or page unless the post you're replying to specifically asks you to leave a link!
Sorry that I had to re-enable word verification, but without it, there was far too much spam coming in - the only other option would have been to require only registered (Google, OpenID, etc.) comments, which might require you, the commenter, to go through even MORE steps just to comment!
