Time for Mailbox Monday

Look what we got in our mailbox last week!!!  It's Natalie Lloyd's new book, The Key to Extraordinary.  Sam and I both loved her debut novel, A Snicker of Magic, sooooooo much that I pre-ordered this one.  

Sam just happened to be wearing a perfectly matching shirt when this arrived, so I snapped a shot of him holding it before either of us dug in.  So far, I've definitely been enjoying it!  Lloyd's writing is so quirky and sweet and imaginative.  This is not a sequel to A Snicker of Magic, but it's got some similarities:  a young girl protagonist with an odd family, magical little town in the Appalachian mountains, and heaps of fun.

I'm happy to be linking up with Mailbox Monday for the first time in a while.  I'm sure I'll be reviewing this fairly soon, too, so if it intrigues you, please check back!

    1. Thanks, Elizabeth! I think he is too :-) And yes, I always find something interesting when I check out the Mailbox Monday entries.

  3. Aw, he's so cute. And the book looks cute, too. :-)

  4. Aw, yay!! I have that lovely book in my possession currently and am quite excited to read it. I haven't cracked it open yet, because I'm too busy hugging it. ;) It just makes me happy to look at it! Will look forward to hearing what both of you think of it.

    1. Kara, I wondered if you'd gotten it too! I've only read the first 2 chapters, but it is very intriguing. And yes, we've hugged ours too :-D
