*UPDATE*

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!

Here is a quick sticky link to my Christmas Spirit Reading Challenge and Read-a-Thon.

Mailbox Monday #92


This week was a slow mailbox for me, but we still received a few things.

For review I received The King's Agent by Donna Russo Morin - from the author.  I loved the previous books of hers that I have read so I can't wait to read this one.  However you will have to wait until April 5th for the review as it is a part of the Historical Fiction Virtual Book Tour.

In my email box I received a digital copy of Mr. President Vol 1 from Radio Archives. Radio Archives is very cool as they have recordings of all sort of old time radio shows etc.  In Mr. President you get recordings from 1949-1950 of dramatizations of events in the lives of some of our presidents.  As I was not around to hear any of these old style radio shows, this is awesome.  Check out their website.  I received this for review as part of the Audiobook Jukebox Solid Gold Reviewer Program.

That was all the books that I received for myself, however the books I order my boyfriend for Christmas came - and I gave them to him early and they are also historicals (he is dipping his feet in the water!).  We got, I, Claudius by Robert Graves, Gates of Fire by Steven Pressfield, and Pompeii and Imperium by Robert Harris.

What wonderful things arrived in your mailbox this week?


Mailbox Monday is on a monthly blog tour and for the month of December it is being hosted by Jenny Q at Let Them Read Books.

  6. Curious about I Claudius and Gates of Fire. I read Pompeii several years ago and it was a great read. Tragic but enjoyable.

  7. Jenny - Glad to hear you enjoyed Pompeii - It is the one I most want to read. Nick has read some of Imperium so far but he really wants to get into Gates of Fire.
