Mailbox Monday and It's Monday, What Are You Reading? for Dec 7

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. Mailbox Monday now has a permanent home on its blog. Link up to share your MM.

It's been a long time since I posted an MM post. Lots of books have been visiting my mailbox so I wanted to share a few. My reading is very eclectic so different genres fill my bookshelves. Hope you all got some good books!

This one came unsolicited by Sourcebooks. Romance and time travel. Perfect for the upcoming weeks when I'll have more time to read.

Until We Meet Again by Renee Collins

Country clubs and garden parties. The last thing Cassandra wants is to spend the summer before her senior year marooned in a snooty Massachusetts shore town. Cass craves drama and adventure, which is hard when she just feels stuck.

But when a dreamy stranger shows up on her family's private beach, claiming that it is his property-and that the year is 1925-Cass is swept into a mystery a hundred years in the making. As she searches for answers in the present, Cass discovers a truth that thrusts Lawrence's life into jeopardy. It won't matter which century he is from if he won't live to see tomorrow.

Desperate to save the boy who's come to mean everything to her, Cassandra must find a way to change history...or risk losing Lawrence forever.

"Until We Meet Again is tragically beautiful with twists you won't see coming."-Martina Boone, author of Compulsion and the Heirs of Watson Island trilogy

"A beach house, a mystery, and time-travel love make Until We Meet Again a romantic, engaging read."-Deb Caletti, National Book Award Finalist for Honey, Baby, Sweetheart

These titles are on tour with iRead Book Tours:

At the Sharp End of Lightning by N.R. Bates

The interwoven fantastical tale of family, of loss and sacrifice, of unexpected gifts and coping with disability and new abilities set against the backdrop of climate change occurring across parallel worlds. In Oceanlight, Yalara Narika, a winged Sea Sprite, searches for her lover over immense seas only to find catastrophe and realization that her world is in turmoil.

Meanwhile in the safe suburban normality of North Wales, Einion Morgan Alban, a restless youth afflicted by a disease of the blood, is nearly murdered by a man in a white suit. Yalara and Einion must discover the causes of their near-deaths and their as yet unrevealed connections as they both face upheaval to their lives and their worlds.

Giving Candy to Strangers by Stan Holden

Too many sales people are focused on the end result, the outcome—the close—and another notch on their gun! But, what if you approached “sales” from a heart-centered standpoint, with curiosity and playfulness, as though the world were your sandbox?

What if you created relationships for no other reason than to help others and make new friends? I know what you are saying, "How can it not be about results when it comes to business?"

The bottom line is important, but if you detach from this burden while you are creating relationships, you will find that the health of your bottomline will improve on its own!

It's Monday! What Are You Reading? is a place to meet up and share what you have been, are and about to be reading over the week. It's a great post to organise yourself. It's an opportunity to visit and comment, and er... add to that ever growing TBR pile! So welcome in everyone. This meme started with J Kaye's Blog and then was taken up by Sheila from Book Journey. Sheila then passed it on to Kathryn at the Book Date.

  1. Your blog is looking really great, Laura! Until We Meet Again sounds like my kind of read. Thanks for sharing it. Enjoy all your new books :)

    1. Thanks! I was itching for a new change. I have blogging plans in 2016 so this was motivating.

  2. I really liked Ditching the Drive-Thru! It encouraged me to take a different look at the food I eat.

    1. I agree. And the more we know, the more consumers will put an effort to bring about change.

  3. I hope you love Until We Meet Again!

  4. Until We Meet Again looks really good!

  7. Wow! Lots of fabulous books here. I need to get my hands on Giving Candy to Strangers. That one sounds wonderful. Hope you enjoy your books.

  8. I haven't been here in a while, so I thought I was in the wrong place at first...LOL. I like the new look.

    Enjoy your books...I am curious about The Thread that Binds. Thanks for visiting my blog.

    1. Yeah, I needed a change! I'm glad you like the new look. The Thread That Binds is good. Enjoying it. :-)

    My Mailbox Monday

    1. Yes, I lost all my other comments with Intense Debate, but what can you do. C'est la vie!

    2. Sorry about your losing all the other comments, but at least I can comment now. :)

      Thanks again.

  11. Love the look of the book All those F words. Sounds like a good self help, wisdom books that are common sense but we sometimes don't take care of.

  12. I can't wait to hear what you think about Until We Meet Again. Good selection of books Laura enjoy

  13. Nice looking assortment of books. I hope you enjoy them all. Here is what I did last week. Happy reading

  14. I think Until We Meet Again looks like a nice time travel tale, I like that it has a 1920's element- intriguing. A seaside setting too for atmosphere. :) Hope it's good!

    1. I love time travel and was happy to receive this one without having to request it. :-)

  15. It's kind of fun to see many book bloggers interested in the same books. That's kind of like us knitters and the yarn brands we use. The F-Word title certainly grabbed my attention. I laughed at how my mind automatically thought of naughty instead of nice f-words.

  16. Until We Meet Again sounds good, but really they all look like good ones. I hope you enjoy them all
