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 #110

This week I picked up a couple of new books for review.

2 Kindle E-books:

  • How Angels Die by David-Michael Harding (from the author)
  • The Ruins of Lace by Iris Anthony (from Sourcebooks on Netgalley)
2 paperback copies:
  • The Elusive Mr. McCoy by Brenda L. Baker - this showed up at my doorstep and although it isn't a historical, it sounds good and I will likely review it on Goodreads - (received from the publisher Penguin)
  • Unruly Princess by Marcelle Thiebaux (received from publicist)

How was your mailbox this week?

Mailbox Monday is currently on a monthly blog tour and for the month of June it is being hosted at Burton Book Review.

  1. Don't you get confused when unsolicited books show up? I was scratching my head for a good three minutes wondering how I got the McCoy one.
    I am so looking forward to The Ruins of Lace, I couldn't pass it up, even though I'm supposedly ignoring all review requests for the rest of my life.
    And NetGalley has me all messed up too.. I must step away from that site..

    1. I do! This one was funny because I said that I thought it sounded like a great read but since it didn't fit with my blog theme I was going to pass. Then it showed up and I didn't remember the title. Then I was really confused!

      I too am very excited about Ruins of Lace - it sounds so intriguing. And NetGalley is very tempting - I have only accepted 2 thus far but it is a bad idea! haha

  2. I haven't heard of any of these novels, but I'm intrigued by the title Ruins of Lace. I'll keep my eyes open for your review.

    1. They really are all a little more obscure, but sound fascinating.

  3. I've seen The Elusive Mr. McCoy pop up here and there -- it sounds good/stressful (I can't cope with infidelity in my novels, I'm such a soft touch!) but I'm so intrigued in that train wreck way!

    1. I'm excited about the idea of living 2 different lives!
