Mailbox Monday is the gathering place for readers to share the books that came in their mailbox during the last week. Warning: Mailbox Monday can lead to envy, toppling TBR piles and humongous wish lists.

Happiness is books in my mailbox and I have a very crafty mailbox to share this week. Aside from books in the mail, our elf on the shelf Noel showed up this week also. He has been hanging out around my book shelves.

Sunset in Central Park  by Sarah Morgan arrived via AmazonVine. This one caught my eye because it has two things I enjoy, romance and New York.

In the chaos of New York, true love can be hard to find, even when it’s been right under your nose all along…

Happy Monday everyone. I hope you are all doing well. We drove out to Upstate NY last week for some picture-taking, hence the photo above. It was a beautiful day and a great way to de-stress a bit after a crazy week. It was the perfect Fall day.

On a bookish note, I know that Thanksgiving hasn’t even arrived, yet I couldn’t help be in the Christmas spirit already. I just have one book to share this week:

Happy Monday. I just love this time of year, when the weather is getting cooler and the leaves are turning vibrant colors. It also makes for perfect cozy reading weather. Although, I have to mention I did shed tears last night over The Walking Dead. Not okay :*(  If you watched, what did you think about it?

Soooo onto my mailbox….

It felt a little like Christmas morning a few weeks ago when I received these, all courtesy of St. Martin’s Press:

Mailbox Monday: the classics

Mondays are my least favorite day of the week except when there are books and a day off work involved. On a recent trip out to Barnes & Noble in search of a new Nook charger I came home with another copy of a favorite classic. I couldn’t resist. It was just so pretty.

Hello all and happy Monday. I hope you are all doing well. I have been missing from blogland for about a month and I definitely missed it. Blogging took a backseat as the warm weather rolled in and although I haven’t been visiting blogland too much, I have gotten a few good books read. I figured a MM post would be a nice way to jump back in and post a few updates.

I’ve slowly been visiting my blog friends this past week and it has been nice catching up but I can’t go back and see all the missed posts for everyone. So if there is a must see review or announcement at your blog, please leave me the link in the comments here. I don’t want to miss it.

If you noticed the Michael Phelps pic up there, it is because I have been watching and enjoying the Rio Olympic Games. I’m not much of a sports fan, but when the Olympic games roll around, I am all in. My favorites are the swimmers and the gymnasts. Watching the games has also given me plenty of crochet time as well.
I’ve been working on this baby blanket for a friend.
