Mailbox Monday – June 16

mmb-300x282Mailbox 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.

tfiosThe Fault in Our Stars. I know that I am possibly the last book blogger left in America who has not read this YA tear-jerker and now I have no excuse.  I won this in a Face book giveaway from my old stomping grounds, Geauga County Public Library.  Thank you for mailing it, Brigid!

IMG_6663Legendary Journeys:Trains.  I broke down and bought this one for Gage after we’d had it checked out of the library for awhile.  It is so much fun for a kid who loves trains!  It is pretty much just the history of trains with beautiful pull-outs. I’ll show one just so you get a taste.trains

  1. Wow, a library that does giveaways! What a great idea! p.s. I haven’t posted my review of Locomotive yet by Brian Floca, but it’s a train lovers paradise. The words are a little old for Gage, but the pictures aren’t, and of course one could read it to him! :–)

    • We’ve had Locomotive out of the library for awhile too! It’s a good one 🙂

  2. I’ll look for the Trains book. Granddaughter Grace loves trains (planes too). Nice giveaway win. Yes, you may be the last person to read TFIOS 😉 Have a good week!

    • Ha, there are a few others who haven’t read TFIOS 🙂 I;m so glad they came out of the woodwork to make me feel better.

      • Wow, I guess you aren’t the last person! I just read the other comments – honestly, having had a nephew go through cancer twice (he just graduated high school last week, yay!!!), it was an ok read but not one I recommend because of the subject matter.

        Comment by Mary | June 23, 2014

      • I’m sorry to hear about your nephew. Kids getting cancer is one thing I find hard to deal with in real life and I don’t know if I’ll really be able to handle it. So, I will continue to put it off!

  3. I’m right there with you… I haven’t read TFiOS either! It’s on my kindle now, so we’ll have to see who will actually be the last to read it 😉

  5. Keep the tissues handy when you read The Fault in Our Stars!

    • That’s why I haven’t read it yet! I need more smiles in my life and less tears.

  6. I haven’t read Fault in our Stars (and haven’t seen the movie either). For some reason, I’m not leaning toward reading it. Normally, I try to read the real popular books. I don’t know why I’m hesitating on this one.

    • For me, it’s that I know i will depress me!

  9. I love trains. I had too many toy trains. I still own a few after what is left after my nephews and nieces took away! I love about trains too!

    Happy reading!

    • Gage is crazy about trains. We’re considering a train vacation for him this summer.

  10. Looks like you got some fun books. I haven’t read The Fault in Our Stars, either, but I’m not going to – too much crying.

    • I klnow, it’s the crying that has stopped me so far!

  11. I actually did get a book in the mail this week! An unusual occurrence. 🙂 Two, now that I think about it. I forgot about the book my mom sent me.

    I hope you like The Fault in Our Stars when you read it! The train book looks so cool!

    • There are plenty of weeks I don’t get anything either and that’s a good thing!

  12. You’re not the last person to read TFIOS, I haven’t either, but it’s on my list to read in the near future.

    I know a little 4 yr. old boy that would love a look at that train book!
