I have updated my review and giveaway policies page (now just titled Policies above). If you are entering a giveaway, please read and abide by the applicable policy.

I am no longer an Amazon Associate. I am currently working on updating my posts with links to various locations to buy books. One of the links I am including is to RJ Julia - this is my favorite local independent book store. You can shop their store online and have access to pretty much anything you are looking for. I do not have any affiliation with any of these sites - just looking to support my local indie book store.

Anyone looking for a new feed reader? My recommendation is Bloglovin'. I made the switch and love the layout, plus there is now an app for my phone. If you use Bloglovin' or have made the switch to another feed reader, please make sure you are following me on it so you miss none of the content here!

Mailbox Monday #51

Mailbox Monday was created by Marcia at The Printed Page but is currently on tour. For the month of October it will be hosted by Avis at She Reads and Reads. Mailbox Monday has lead to my overwhelming pile of books at home to read and those that I wish to get my hands on.

This week slowed down a lot in terms of books (compared to last week), but I think the mailman was getting tired of all of the DVD's coming in that I ordered last week during a bit of going Ebay-crazy!

From Sourcebooks for review I received Queen of Last Hopes by Susan Higginbotham. I have not yet had the chance to read any of her books, so I am very excited about this one. I am also just getting into reading things from the War of the Roses period so this will be perfect!

Did anything you really wanted come in your mailbox this week?

  1. Oh, what DVDs? I haven't read any Higginbotham yet, either -- I'm looking forward to your review!

  2. Audra - I went on an old movie spree - I got a bunch of Judy Garland's, Audrey Hepburn, and Singin' in the Rain. I have always wanted to get these and I just got a small bonus at work, so I decided that was what I would spend my money on!

  3. I received The Queen of Last Hopes also... I am so excited about it :) I love that era in history!

  4. Just saw your post on your movie spree... great choices. Singing in the Rain is splendid. And to think Frank Sinatra had a fever during that famous scene... you can't even tell!

  5. Nice choice. Have read one Higginbotham and I liked that.


Thanks for leaving your comments! I love reading them and try to reply to all!
