In My Mailbox

In My Mailbox was created by Kristi of The Story Siren.

This week I got two books. One in the mail and one from the library.

The one I got in the mail I won from a contest on Holly of Good Golly Miss Holly's blog and it is:

Saving Maddie by Varian Johnson

Joshua Wynn is a preacher’s son and a “good boy” who always does the right thing. Until Maddie comes back to town. Maddie is the daughter of the former associate pastor of Joshua’s church, and his childhood crush. Now Maddie is all grown up, gorgeous—and troubled. She wears provocative clothes to church, cusses, drinks, and fools around with older men. Joshua’s ears burn just listening to the things she did to get kicked out of boarding school, and her own home.

As time goes on, Josh goes against his parents and his own better instincts to keep Maddie from completely capsizing. Along the way, he begins to question his own rigid understanding of God and whether, as his mother says, a girl like Maddie is beyond redemption. Maddie leads Josh further astray than any girl ever has . . . but is there a way to reconcile his love for her and his love for his life in the church?

And from the library I got:

Heartless by Sara Shepard

And I am super excited about this one and not putting a description because of spoilers.

That was my week, can't wait to see what everyone else got!


  1. I have Saving Maddie, but haven't started it yet. Let us know what you think!

  2. I want to read Saving Maddie too. I look forward to your review.

  3. I have Saving Maddie in my TBR Pile , I got it from the library. Looking forward to reading your review of Heartless - its one of the Pretty Little Liars books I have yet to read.
