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 #86

I received three things in the mail this week and none of them were actual books - however I still have the need to share as you may be interested.

First I received my long awaited copy of the Blu-ray Red Riding Hood from APB Media.  I had won this in a giveaway from one of the movie's promoters because I had happened to review it on this site and posted links to their website.  I was so very excited for this because I thought the movie was beautiful - despite the poor critical reviews it received.  One of my new favorites.  I absolutely watched it the day it arrived.

Then I received a copy of the audiobook for Killing Lincoln by Bill O'Riley.  I'm not a huge O'Riley fan, but I was interested in how this book would be.  Obviously I'm going to read another book about Lincoln for my books about the Presidents goal, but I was intrigued.  I received this from the publisher, Macmillan, as part of the Audiobook Jukebox Solid Gold Reviewed Program.

Finally, I received an awesome board game - called 7 Wonders, which we ordered from Amazon.  Its a sort of board/sort of card game about building the 7 Wonders of the World.  It is pretty easy to learn, I learned in one sitting and WON!  I will probably post a review of it on here at some point, but if you are interested in checking out the game yourself, I recommend going to their website.  The feel is similar to a Civilization game that you would play on the computer, however in board game form.

Did anything awesome arrive in your mailbox?

Mailbox Monday is on a monthly blog tour and for the month of October it is being hosted by Serena at Savvy Verse and Wit.

  1. My mailbox was eclectic to say the least! enjoy all what you got.

  2. Fun arrivals!! The 7 Wonders game sounds fabu -- I love games like that -- so I'll keep an eye out for it. I've wanted to see the Red Riding Hood movie but avoided it b/c of the bad reviews but you've put it back on my radar -- I think I'll Netflix it!

  3. Audra - Red Riding Hood certainly isn't an award winning film but I still very much enjoyed it. The setting was GORGEOUS and the story line was decent (some plot holes but overall). Most critiques are on the acting, but I thought it was mostly well done. I think you would like it.


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