Mailbox Monday - May 12

Mailbox Monday is a meme started by Marcia of To Be Continued. Mailbox Monday is the gathering place for readers to share the books that came in their mailbox during the last week. It now has a permanent home at the Mailbox Monday blog.

Warning: Mailbox Monday can lead to envy, toppling TBR piles, and humongous wish lists.

Thankfully it was a slow book week. I haven't had as much reading time as I would like. Between meetings and running the kids back and forth to events, I've been pretty tired lately, so no late night reading sessions in the tub.

This first one came to me directly from the publisher. I think the Lil Diva might enjoy it. She's currently devouring the Percy Jackson Series, but I'll see what she thinks about tackling this one soon.



Maddy, an orphan, is sick of her Irish town, and sick of her cousin Danny, one of the nastiest people you could meet. Mad as hell one evening, she crawls inside the grounds of the castle, the one place she has always been forbidden to go. Once inside, she is chased by a strange feral boy, who she suspects is one of the faerie: cruel, fantastical people who live among humans and exchange local children for their own.

When the boy returns to steal her neighbor Stephen into his world, Maddy and her cousins set off on a terrifying journey into a magical wilderness, determined to bring him back home. To do so, they must face an evil as old as the earth itself.

Che Golden has created a gripping adventure that interweaves Maddy’s modern Irish experience with the vivid fantasy of the region’s ancient folklore. Readers will enjoy the frank and bold heroine of Maddy, and will be dazzled by The Feral Child’s evocative rendering of Irish folklore and richly imagined alternate worlds.

Good luck with the Real Estate career. Housing sales have been rising in my area. I guess I should have kept my real estate license!

I had a load since I was away for four days.
How's the real estate coming?

Not bad. I met with the final company this morning. Now, I have to decide who I want to work with.
