Mailbox Monday and It's Monday, What are You Reading? Dec 30 Edition

Mailbox Monday was created by Marcia who now blogs at To Be Continued. It is the gathering place for readers to share the books that came into their house last week. The host for December is Gilian at Rose City Reader. You can also view the touring blog list here for the upcoming months.

No review books this week!

Free Kindle Book:

This came highly recommended by another blogger who included it in her best reads for 2013 list, so when I saw it was free I grabbed it.

Stealing the Preacher by Karen Witemeyer

On his way to interview for a position at a church in the Piney Woods of Texas, Crockett Archer can scarcely believe it when he's forced off the train by a retired outlaw and presented to the man's daughter as the minister she requested for her birthday. Worried this unfortunate detour will ruin his chances of finally serving a congregation of his own, Crockett is determined to escape. But when he finally gets away, he's haunted by the memory of the young woman he left behind--a woman whose dreams now hinge on him.

For months, Joanna Robbins prayed for a preacher. A man to breathe life back into the abandoned church at the heart of her community. A man to assist her in fulfilling a promise to her dying mother. A man to help her discover answers to the questions that have been on her heart for so long. But just when it seems God has answered her prayers, it turns out the parson is there against his will and has dreams of his own calling him elsewhere. Is there any way she can convince Crockett to stay in her little backwoods community? And does the attraction between them have any chance of blossoming when Joanna's outlaw father is dead set against his daughter courting a preacher?

This meme is hosted by Sheila at Book Journey. This is where we keep track of what we are currently reading and plan to read.  The kidlit version is hosted by Jen at Teach Mentor Texts.

Read and reviewed:
Camelot & Vine by Petrea Burchard (great time-travel)
Love Anthony by Lisa Genova (touching)
Brava Valentine by Adriana Trigiani (great audiobook - fantastic sequel to the first book)
Trash by Andy Mulligan (one of the best YA books I've read!)
The Deception by Marion Chesney (great audiobook, best of the series so far!)

Currently Reading:
The Splendour Falls by Susanna Kearsley (very good so far)
The Stowaways by Meghan Marentette (reading with my son: we're half-way through but my son's getting bored)
The Riddle of Prague by Laura DeBruce (reading with my daughter: not as exciting as we thought)

Hope you all have a great reading week!
