Mailbox Monday: May 16th -21st, 2011

It's Mailbox Monday time! Mailbox Monday is going on tour and May is being hosted by Mari Reads! Mailbox Monday is the gathering place for readers to share the books that came into their house last week (checked out library books don’t count, eBooks and audio books do). Warning: Mailbox Monday can lead to envy, toppling TBR piles and humongous wish lists!


This weekend I needed some cheering up and it was achieved. Friday night, I went with my coworkers to go see the one-man Hugh Jackman show where he sings a bunch of Broadway hits with a live orchestra. You guys this was amazing and Jackman is HOT! Saturday night my boyfriend and I went out to a nice dinner and then saw the new movie Bridesmaids. This movie was freaking hysterical! And if you think it's for women only, my boyfriend can attest to the fact that it is not. It appeals to everyone! Highly recommend it!


Now, mailbox time! Here's what great items came into my mailbox this week:


From Atria Publishers:
1. Confetti Confidential by Holly McQueen




















2. Compact with the Devil by Bethany Maines




















From PBS
3. Labor Day by Joyce Maynard






















4. The Debutante by Kathleen Tessaro




















What did you get?

    Actually you have a few on there that I am really looking forward too: Confetti Confidential and Compact with the Devil!
