Mailbox Monday


Once again it's time for Mailbox Monday, hosted by Marcia at The Printed Page.

I had two goodies arrive this week:

Red as Blood: Tales from the Sisters Grimmer by Tanith Lee - I love fairytale retellings, and Tanith Lee is always amazing, so I'm excited about this one.

Losing My Religion: How I Lost my Faith Reporting on Religion in America - and Found an Unexpected Peace by William Lobdell - I'm fascinated by the religious journeys that people take, so this memoir seems right up my alley.

An eclectic mix, but such good stuff! Did you get anything fun? Stop by The Printed Page and see what other friends received this week!

Red as Blood sounds interesting - I'll watch for your review! :)

Elizabeth, I can't wait to see what you think of Losing My Faith!

Thanks for stopping by the 'Mailbox' this week. I see some historical fiction in your future. Don't worry about the links. I actually had to buy a label maker and put the examples right on my computer so I'd never be w/o my 'notes'.

Oh my gosh, these both sounds AMAZING! I love me some fairy tales, and I'm a sucker for religious memoirs. Heavenly! (No pun intended.) Will be adding these to my wishlist.

Interesting books. Looking forward to your reviews.

Jan Lynn tackles the tough subject of losing faith in religion. She'll make you think. Read it.
