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

    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! :–)

    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!

        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.

        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!

    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.

    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!

    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!
