MAILBOX MONDAY… is a gathering place for readers to share the books that came into their house last week and explore great book blogs. Warning: Mailbox Monday can lead to envy, toppling TBR piles and humongous wish lists.

July Host:   Mrs. Q Book Addict

I had a busier week that last week. I got 5 books in the mail. 

And When She Was Good by Laura Lippman (tour)
The Black Isle by Sani Tan (???)
Crazy Life of a Writing Mom by EC Stilson (tour)
Things Your Dog Doesn’t Want You To Know by Hy Conrad & Jeff Johnson (tour)
Glass Boys by Nicole Lundrigan (review)

I have no idea why I received The Black Isle. I can’t find any email in my tour/review folders. I don’t remember entering a giveaway for it. I’m stumped. I know I’ve gotten books before that were sent to me out of the blue, without me asking for them, so I think that’s what happened. But…if you received this book too, would you please let me know who sent it to you? I’d appreciate it!


MUSING MONDAYS… is a weekly meme where MizB will ask a book/reading-related question, and you answer with your own thoughts on the topic.

What question(s) would you like to see asked in future Musing Mondays posts?

I’d like you to ask: (don’t answer now, wait to see if MizB uses the ?’s for MM)
1-“Name the book you were assigned in school that made the most impact on you?”
2-“Who influenced your love of books, & have you influenced anyone else?”
3-“Name a book that you thought you wouldn’t like much, but you ended up loving.”


Acting Balanced

MONDAY QUIZ ABOUT ME… posts 4 questions that everyone can answer. Then you have the option to add a fifth question of your own for those who are visiting your blog to answer, along with commenting on the four standard questions you answered!

1. What is your favorite Olympic sport?
I love them all, but my favorites are cycling, swimming and weightlifting.

2. What is the healthiest meal you’ve eaten this week?
Ultra thin crust veggie pizza… Me, who always gets the meat lovers pizza, got the veggie pizza! And it was GOOD people!!

3. What is the unhealthiest meal you’ve eaten this week?
Golden Coral… ate too much, but I’m So proud of myself cause I ate fruit instead of cake etc. for dessert! I still can’t believe it!!

4. What jewelry do you wear every day?
Nada. I used to wear earrings and lots of rings, but I don’t wear any jewelry anymore. I do wear my MIO watch though.

My question to you:
What show’s season/series premiere are you most looking forward to?
Here’s a link to check them out

There are so many, but I think I have to say, Hawaii 5-O, The Mentalist and NCIS: Los Angeles, and Mike & Molly.  Also The Biggest Loser & The Amazing Race!!
