Thank You Mr. Postman: Angels, Kentucky, & Belly Laughs

Hi dolls! Thanks to some of my amazing blogger pals, my mailbox was actually busy this week...

Angels True Stories by Robert J. Morgan
(won at the very cool Tina's Book Reviews)
Queen of Kentucky by Alecia Whitaker
(a gift from the super sweet
Pirate Penguin)
Belly Laughs by Jenny McCarthy
(a gift from the kind and thoughtful
Tea Time with Marce)

So what did you get this week? Are you ready for tomorrow? Do you get trick-or-treaters? Are you dressing up? Or are you like me and simply passing out candy? Oh and do tell, what did you think of Grimm?

  1. Even though I never read Belly Laughs, I've heard it's really good! Tomorrow my baby turns two but we had his party yesterday so tomorrow we go to my church for the candy/bounce house/kid fest extravaganza that they have each year, or as we call it, party number 2 :-)

  11. Ooh, books in the mail! I'd love some. Haha. I am handing out candy, and not dressing up. But that's ok. I'm not much for haunted houses or parties, and am a bit old for trick or treating! I really liked Grimm so far. It's dark, but good.

  17. Might be dressing up but still staying home to pass out the candy. We get a pretty good amount of trick-or-treaters in our neighborhood....I'm armed and ready (with 40 candy bags packed and ready to go). ^_^

  18. GMR: Oh goody! As what, may I ask? You go girl! I need to go candy shopping this afternoon.

  19. Great haul!
    I just loved Belly Laughs so much. I didn't like her next books in the series quite as much, though. But I liked the candidacy of her stories that was lacking in other parenting books.
    Happy reading!

    Oh, and I really liked Grimm. I thought it started off badly, but ending well. Can't wait to see where the season goes!

  20. Penelope: Thanks :) And that's fab to hear. I'll make a mental note about the next book.

    Great way to summarize Grimm. I screamed within the first 5 seconds.

  21. Oh! Baby Laughs. What a thoughtful gift! I've heard Jenny's candor is one that expecting mothers really appreciate.

    Enjoy.

  22. I'm doing none of the above :( I am sequestering myself in a dark corner with candy and coffee and attempt to meet a very important deadline. It's not pretty.

  23. Belly Laughs looks like a great book for you. Happy reading!

  24. Alexis: Ahhhh bummer. But at least you're adding candy to the mix :)

    Jenny N: Thanks :) I think so too.
