I simply have to share with you what came in the mail today!!! My caring mom understood how much I wanted certain books that were coming to my home right after I left for college, so at the end of last week she sent them up to Corban University--priority mail! Today I got the box with three books I am very anxious to read:
A Hope Undaunted
There has been so much excitement about this book the past few months that I can't believe I actually have my copy! I know I will want to dive into this one as soon as possible! However, I've already been pulling a couple of late-nighters (into the wee hours of the morning), so I know I need to be sure and get some sleep. ;)
But I know that when I do read this I won't be disappointed! After all, it's a book by Julie Lessman!
A Memory Between Us
I haven't read the first in this series, but I've been hearing good things about this author! I'm excited about the time period of the novel, plus the romance, of course! Love that cover, too!
Petra: City of Stone
I've got to tell you--I am so happy to have an Advanced Reader Edition of this book! It's been about a year since her last novel, Guardian of the Flame, came out, and I can't wait to read another book by T.L. Higley. I'm looking forward to being transported to another time through the pages of this book!
Now, as I'm sure many of you have heard, Casey is having a contest on her blog for the best picture of the entrants holding their copies of A Hope Undaunted while imitating the cover model. Such a fun idea! Click HERE to check out the official rules for the contest.
I saw on Joy's blog, Edgy Inspirational Romance, that she was showing the pictures she had taken for the contest. And at my roomie's urging and due to my own excitement, I'd like to share my picture entry with you, too!
Thank you to my friend, Annie, for taking the picture for me! I tried to find the timer feature for the camera, but I was having trouble, so I just asked her to come up to my room and take it for me. I was so happy I had my blue dress with me, even if the necklace is not quite as long as it ought to be. We college students have to deal with what we've got, you know. ;)
Hope you all are having a wonderful Monday!
P.S. I'm sorry that I didn't do "Monday for the Military" today, but I do hope we will keep all those military men and women (and their families) in our prayers!
