Mailbox Monday 2-17

Mailbox Monday is a gathering place for readers to share the books that came into their house last week(s) and explore great book blogs. Mailbox Monday was created by Marcia at Hooked by A Book (formerly The Printed Page) and is on tour for the month of February and hosted by Audra at Unabridged Chick
Warning: Mailbox Monday can lead to envy, toppling TBR piles and humongous wish lists.

This week one book found it's way into my house. Scarlet by Marissa Meyer is a traveling book from Dini at Ladies and Literature group on Goodreads. I have participated in their traveling book adventure twice now. Cinder by Marissa Meyer and People of the Book by Geraldine Brooks.  I really enjoyed the ability to  have the print book in my hand with the only output of dollars being the $4-$5 it costs me to send it on. When Scarlet showed up as the newest traveling book, I  jumped at the chance. Thanks Beth for sending it on to me. It started in AR from Dini, then Beth in TN sent it to me.  When I am finished I will send it on to Shannon in NC. We kind of keep track as to where each title has traveled. Much fun!!.

I am still working on last weeks large mailbox stash. But I will get to Scarlet very soon. Just a hint for those of you who haven't heard of this series, "The Lunar Chronicles"  This time, it's Little Red Riding Hood set in the distant future. And yes, there is a big, bad Wolf. 
I don't read much dystopian fiction, but I enjoyed Cinder and I assume I will feel the same way about Scarlet.  I'll let you know.

Until next time,

Stay Busy and Stay Happy


  1. I'm not familiar with your new book, but hope you enjoy it. I bet you have plenty to read on your shelves:) Have a great week.

  2. I hope you enjoy Scarlet! I didn't like it quite as much as Cinder, mostly because I wanted to hear more of Cinder's story. But Scarlet definitely won me over in the end!

  3. Traveling books definitely sound like a great way to read new books without having to spend a ton of money. I like the idea, but hate the idea I may not be able to keep a book I loved. Although I guess you could always buy a new copy.

    And I haven't read Cinder yet, but I definitely want to. While I knew the first was Cinderella, had no idea the second was Little Red Ridding Hood. And now that I know, well I want to read it even more

  4. I've got Cinder on my TBR -- so excited to hear there's another one!

  5. The traveling book idea does sound like fun! If you send it media mail it costs even less.

  6. I do think "traveling" books sounds like fun. Enjoy your new book...and the stack that awaits your "busy hands."


  7. Traveling Books sounds like a great idea. Enjoy your book!

  8. Scarlet sounds interesting.

  9. A traveling book sounds fun....ENJOY!!
