Mailbox Monday Jan 18th

This is a short post. I acquired two books in my mailbox. The first was purchased from After reading the reviews of a great many of my fellow bloggers, I bought Fallen by Lauren Kate. The book is quite alluring. I have not opened it yet, because I have a few books I must finish first. From the reviews, I know it has the potential to cancel plans in order that one may continue reading the book. I am quite excited to have it waiting in the wings. The second book I received compliments of Thomas Nelson Publishing to review. It is caled The Selfless Gene by Charles Foster. The ideas the book deal with have intrigued me since high school. I even did a large project in grad school on Origins and developed a spectrum of authors on the subjects of evolution and creation.  So, I literally jumped at the opportunity to review this book. Now if I can just finish the two of the library books I have started, I will be  able to open the covers of both my new books.

Thanks to the Printed Page for hosting Mailbox Mondays.

And now I am signing off to continue reading Between Two Queens.


  1. I really want to read Fallen!

    I haven't heard of the other one, but it definitely sounds interesting. I'll be looking forward to your review.

    Enjoy your week!

  2. The cover of Fallen really makes me want to know more about the book!

  3. Fallen is supposed to be fantastic! Happy reading!

  4. I would like to read the Selfless Gene to see if it exists.

    Happy reading & have a great week!

  5. The Selfless Gene sounds fascinating! I can't wait to read your review, especially since you have special knowledge and interest in this area. :-)

  6. I look forward to your thoughts on The Selfless Gene book. I've been happy to see more books lately that discuss evolution in a religious context (without calling names).
