In Our Mailbox (Jan. 24-30)

Sunday, January 30, 2011 with
"In My Mailbox" is a weekly event that gives book bloggers a chance to show off their book haul for the week. It was inspired by Alea of Pop Culture Junkie and hosted by Kristi of The Story Siren.

My order from Barnes and Noble came this week and I'm very eager to read the books especially Melina Marchetta's Saving Francesca and Julie Jame's Just the Sexiest Man Alive. Julie James is my favorite contemporary romance author and if you love romantic comedy type of reads, you must pick up one of her books (my personal fave is Practice Makes Perfect).

We didn't think we'd get any review books this week but Mad Love and Jenna & Jonah's Fauxmance came on Friday. I am very excited for Jenna and Jonah (I featured it in a "Book I Covet" post a while back) because it sounds like a fun book and it's one of those alternating perspective books and I love reading those.

Here's a snapshot of the books:
