In My Mailbox (Just Received) 3/21/11

In My Mailbox was started by The Story Siren.

The idea behind IMM was not only to put new books on your radar but to also encourage blogger interaction. IMM explores the weekly contents of my mailbox and books bought.

Anyone can participate in IMM and you are not limited to only sharing books that arrive via your mailbox. You can also share books that you've bought or books that you've gotten at the library.

Last week, in my mailbox, I received one book The Millenium Diet: The Practical Guide for Rapid Weight Loss by Mark Davis. M.D. I received a complimentary copy of this book in exchange for a review.

"Lose thirty pounds in five weeks utilizing this unique diet plan that works with your body's physiology to maximize weight loss.  The Millenium Diet is a physician conceived program to cause rapid weight loss in a short  period of time.  No other program on the market today is designed for expeditious weight loss at the levels achieved by this diet.  Diet histories of thousands of people were studied.  Certain common foods and food groups were noted to cause most of their weight gain.  When these foods were eliminated or reduced in portion size the dramatic weight loss that occurred caused this program to come into existence.  The Millenium Diet is safe, effective and adaptable to most lifestyles.  The book is packed full of information every dieter should know and is now available to anyone interested in a quick weight loss program."

I bought Beastly by Alex Flinn for my daughter to read and so far she is enjoying the story. 


"I AM A BEAST.  A BEAST!  Not quite wolf or bear, gorilla or dog but a horrible new creature who walks upright.  I am a monster.
    You think I'm talking fairy tales?  No way.  The place is New York City.  The time is now.  It's no deformity, no disease.  And I'll stay this way forever--ruined--unless I can break the spell.
     Yes, the spell, the one the witch in my English class cast on me.  Why did she turn me into a beast who hides by day and prowls by night?  I'll tell you.  I'll tel you how I used to be Kyle Kingsbury, the guy you wished you were, with money, perfect looks, and the perfect life.  And then, I'll tell you how I became perfectly...BEASTLY."

Sizzle by Julie Garwood.  I bought this novel.

"Lyra Prescott, a Los Angeles film student, is closing in on graduation and dives into work on her final filmmaking assignment:  a documentary transformed by a twist of fate into a real-life horror film. While working on her project, a rash of mysterious incidents convince Lyra that she's trapped in a sinister scenario headed for a violent ending.  Running scared, she turns to her best friend, Sidney Buchanan, whose connection brings devilishly handsome FBI agent Sam Kincaid into Lyra's life.  As the noose of intrigue tightens, the passion between Lyra and Sam escalates with dangerous intensity.  With the rugged FBI agent beside her, Lyra must learn to let down her defenses and follow her heart--even if that leads to deadly peril."

What's in your mailbox?  Something exciting, I'm sure.  I'd love to see what's new.  Won't you share and link up with The Story Siren in this weekly meme?

    I didn't know Julie Garwood had a new book out. I'm not a huge fan, but I might check Sizzle out because the summary reminds me a bit of the Scream movies.

  2. 'Sizzle' sounds interesting - may have to consider wishlisting that one ^^

  3. thanks for dropping by my IMM ! ... I'm jealous you received Beastly! It's on the top of my list to get! Can't wait to see a review for it!

  4. I've been trying to convince my husband to go see Beastly! Haven't read the book, though. I hope your daughter likes it.

  5. Sizzle sounds good! Enjoy your books!

  6. Thanks for dropping by! I haven't started XVI, but it's a dystopian YA - book description here because I think Goodreads will probably do a better job summing it up than I could :D

  7. You'll have to tell me if you think the diet plan will work. Those quick loss plans make me skeptical. Thanks for stopping by my blog earlier.

  8. Thank you for stopping by my blog! My sister is reading Beastly right now and she seems to be enjoying it ... hard to tell with teenagers though, haha.

    Hope you have a great week!

  9. Great mailbox hon! You will love Beastly!!! Thank you for stopping by :)
