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 #95

I know this is a day late, but I still wanted to share what I received this week as I had a pretty good mailbox.  I received 4 books.

The first was a book I had originally borrowed from the library for my research project but decided it would be a good reference book to use to better understand the Siena Research Institute's First Lady poll results - Rating the First Ladies by John B Roberts II - purchased from Amazon.

For the Historical Fiction Virtual Book Tour for Christine Blevins I received The Turning of Anne Merrick from the publisher.  I'm excited to read this one!  Keep an eye out for the tour, my dates are at the end of February.

Using part of the gift card I got for Christmas for Barnes and Noble I picked up a copy of Chelsea Chelsea Bang Bang by Chelsea Handler.  I have loved all of her books so far so I can't wait for the chance to dig into this one!

The final book I received finishes off my Little House on the Prairie Series - Old Town in the Green Grove by Cynthia Rylant.

What did you receive this week?

Mailbox Monday is on a monthly blog tour and is being hosted by At Home With Books for the month of January.

  1. I rec'd Christine Blevins' book, as well, and I'm looking forward to reading more American history based historical fiction. Enjoy your new books!

  2. I haven't read any Chelsea Handler yet but I have friends who adore her -- enjoy!

  3. Most of those are new to me, but one of my girlfriends recommends that Chelsea Handler book highly (said it had her snorting/laughing out loud in public).

  4. Alyce - it is certainly a lough out loud sort of read. I have listened to her books on audio in the car and it was pretty much like listening to stand up comedy!


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