In My Mailbox (#5)

In My Mailbox is a weekly meme hosted by Kristi, The Story Siren.  This meme was began so we could all share what books we received the previous week ... whether it was in the mail, from the library or what we bought at a store.

I've had a pretty good week, this week.  Here's what I've received:

Stan's LeapStan's Leap by Tom Duerig:  I received this book from the author's publicist for review.  The main concept of the story is about a couple who takes a vacation on a remote island and are stranded there with several other couples.  I'm anxious to begin reading this to find out what happens to them!

Rush of Wings, A: A NovelA Rush of Wings by Kristen Heitzmann:  This is one of three books I received from Bethany House Publishers for review.  After reading the back cover, I've gathered that this story is about a woman running from her past and winds up at a horse ranch.  While there, two brothers vie for her attention and affection as her past catches up with her.

Hatteras GirlHatteras Girl by Alice J. Wisler:  This is book two of the three books I received from Bethany House Publishers for review.  The synopsis of this book is about Jackie, a reviewer of local business owners, who dreams of finding Mr. Right and owning her own business one day.  She meets a man who holds the key to her dream of owning a business, and could possibly be Mr. Right, but the details she learns of his past make her wonder if she's on the right path to her future.

Amy InspiredAmy Inspired by Bethany Pierce:  This is the third book I received from Bethany House Publishers this week for review.  I'm anxious to read this one as well because it's about an aspiring writer, Amy, who gave up her job to pursue a life of writing (how appropriate for National Novel Writing Month!).  After being rejected many times by publishers, she meets a man who makes her want to be more than friends.  Is this meant to be or a distraction from her dream of being a writer?

Bending Toward the Sun: A Mother and Daughter MemoirBending Towards the Sun by Leslie Gilbert-Lurie:  I received this book from FSB Media for a review.  It's a memoir written by a woman and her mother.  The mother had to flee her home at five years of age to hide from the Nazis.  While in hiding, she saw her younger brother and mother die before her eyes.  Years later, the daughter digs into her mother's past to discover how her mother's pain has affected her life.  It is a legacy that unites, inspires and haunts them.

The Reflections of Light for Daily Living: A Book of Affirmations for the Ambitious
The Reflections of Light for Daily Living by Dr. Tiffany Brown:  I received an ebook copy from the author's publicist.  I will be hosting this author on her blog tour on Friday, November 12th. 

"This book will provide daily tools to endure storms while dealing with haters and toxic friends all while grindin' to get to the next level of your life ... (this book) consists of a series of 365 daily passages or 'teachings' to help give you an inspirational boost to your day. While it is possible to read the passages straight through as you would a novel, think of the book as a collection of individual stories, each of which tells its own tale and can be approached one at a time."

  1. Looks like you had a successful week! Bending Toward the Sun isn't my typical read but it sounds really intense and moving and that always makes for a great read. Enjoy!

  2. I haven't heard of these books - I'll look forward to reading your reviews!

    Thanks for stopping by my blog, and happy reading!
