Mailbox Monday is a weekly bookish meme hosted by Marcia over at The Printed Page. 

Since I missed the last few Mondays, I have a few to blab about!!  WOOT! 

Here they are in all their georgous bookiness:

(WOAH!  Has this ever happened to you?  You are literally typing your post for Mailbox Monday and the doorbell rings... Fed Ex delivering another book!!!  I am soooo happyyy!!!)

The following books were sent to me by Michelle  and Anneliese from SIMON AND SCHUSTER CANADA... THANK YOU SOOOO MUCH!!!  I will say, once again, that Simon and Schuster Canada are very good to me, and I am honoured and blessed that they send me books for review. 
Last week, I recieved a VERY exciting email asking me if I would like to review a new book.  It is exciting because the email was from PENGUIN PUBLISHING!   I had applied to review for them a few months ago and was just so thrilled and honoured to now be on their roster of bloggers that they send out ARC's too.  THANK YOU PENGUIN! 

The book that was sent to me and arrived literally a moment ago is:

MISTRESS OF ROME by Kate Quinn   Available April 6th 2010. 

I suddenly have A LOT of review books to read, as I have some from awhile ago that I am still working my way through... ACK!   I have now placed the stack in priority of A) books that I've had for awhile and have not yet reviewed, B) books with an imminent release date C) and books with a release date in May.  So, I am not doing much recreational reading at the moment!  But I must say that so far the books FEEL very much like recreation as I am really liking them or loving them.

What's in YOUR mailbox this week?

Aw, how awesome! This never happens to me.
Clair de Lune looks so great. So does It's Not Summer Without You... I haven't read The Summer I Turned Pretty though. Is this one a sequel? Or not? Hope you enjoy all the books! Oh, and I'm pretty excited to know which book is this "SUPER SECRET YA NOVEL!". :)

Hey Raila! (I'm sorry, I don't know how to do the accent on your "i"! I have an accent on my last name, and have yet to learn how to do that!)

ANYway, It IS a sequel! But I have not read the first one, and I still really enjoyed it. I think you will LOVE the super secret book... I haven't started it yet, but the cover is GEORGOUS, the premise is VERY COOL, and the first couple of pages is very very good!

Thanks for stopping by, and have a great day!

Oooh! I'm dying to know what the mystery book is! I've been wanting to get my hands on the Forgotten Garden book too.

In response to your question about how I do the images on my MM posts, I use the Paint program, size the images so that they are all similar and then select them and save them (copy to) a single image. (If that doesn't make sense feel free to email me.)

I've heard The Forgotten Garden is wonderful! I'm really curious about the super secret YA title!

You got a lot of great looking books! I have The Forgotten Garden on my shelf TBR and look forward to reading it. Your mystery books sounds very intriguing. I have too many books TBR also and I'm trying to be more selective. It can be challenging with so many good books to read!!

I would love to be able to reach into the screen and pick several of those right off the page!
