Mailbox Mondays

Mailbox Monday is on tour, with September’s location being at Amused by Books.

Well I’ve been MIA since the 21st. Sorry about that. It’s been kind of hectic here at my place. The hubby’s gallbladder is shot. We have a consultation with a surgeon tomorrow. So I’ve been having to go to the doctor with him, twice last week. And then tomorrow’s appointment. Hopefully they will schedule him soon because he’s miserable. Then over the weekend we went up to St. Louis to see the Cards/Cubs games on Saturday and Sunday. The Cards won both games! Woo! Plus the Braves lost yesterday so now, if I’ve got this right, we’re only 1 out from the Wild Card race. Exciting! And today ….. I would like to wish my husband a very happy 27th birthday! So there’s all my news. Well at least all I can share with everyone right now 🙂 On to the books.

I only got two in the mail this past week. Both came from Paperbackswap, using points, helping me to round out a series I’m working on right now:

 Scot Harvath’s counterterrorism career has just crashed and burned – thanks in part to a ruthless senator with her sights set on the White House. But when the war on terror takes a chilling turn, the president has no choice but to secretly bring Harvath back inside. Deep beneath an Alpine glacier, an ancient weapon designed to decimate the Roman Empire has been unearthed – and a shadowy organization intends to use it for America’s downfall. Racing across Europe, Harvath must secure the ultimate instrument of destruction before it brings the United States and the rest of the world to its knees.

 July 4th weekend, New York City: As thousands of holiday travelers make their way out of Manhattan, a flawlessly executed terrorist attack plunges the city into a maelstrom of panic and death. Amidst the chaos, an elite team of foreign soldiers is systematically searching for one of their own, a man so powerful that the U.S. government refuses to admit he even exists and will do anything to keep him hidden. Now, with the world’s deadliest enemy upon America’s doorstep, counterterrorism operative Scot Harvath must fight his way through the burning city streets to take down an invisible terrorist mastermind with the means to unleash hell on a global scale.

  1. I hope you enjoy your books, Tara, they look interesting and suspenseful.

    Happy Birthday to your husband, I suppose he’ll feel more like celebrating after he gets his gallbladder taken care of.

    I don’t know a lot about gallbladders but I hope he’s not feeling too miserable right now.

    Good luck with everything.

  2. Amy – thank you! The gallbladder can make you quite miserable. For a while it can be controlled with diet, but he’s not capable (*willing*) to do that, haha.

    Nicole – thank you, I’m definitely looking forward to them!

    Kim – yes, I am a recent Thor fan! I’ve read the first two and am reading the third one right now. So I was glad to get the 4th and 5th in the mail last week 🙂

    Mary – thanks, I feel terrible for him he’s in a lot of discomfort 😦
