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 #111


This mailbox represents the last two weeks, which have been very slow, but I am not complaining…I have a lot to read already!  I’m sure your very surprised by that!

Anyway, I received one item through Netgalley which I can’t wait to read: Jane: The Woman Who Loved Tarzan by Robin Maxwell.  This comes out in September, so I won’t be posting my review until then, but I’m quite excited to read it.  I have enjoyed the previous books that I have read by Robin Maxwell.  Here is the book blurb:

JANE by Robin Maxwell is the first reimagining of the legendary Tarzan story from Jane’s point of view, and the first version by a female writer that’s fully authorized and endorsed by the Edgar Rice Burroughs estate. Set in the early 1900s, JANE is both a page-turning adventure novel (complete with lush jungle settings, a devious villain, and turn-of-the-century science) and an unlikely yet intimate love story.

Sounds good, right?

So what came in your mailboxes this week?


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

  1. This one does look really good and quite different from what she's written previously :)

    1. I like how with her prior novel (O Juliet) and with this one she is taking on iconic literary characters and setting it in the historical world. It gives us more to the stories we know!

  2. Jane sounds quite interesting. I hope you enjoy it. I'll look out for your review in September.

  3. I've heard about that book! I'm really excited to read it too. Can't wait until September!

  4. I also like Karen Essex, although I didn't read her las one. This one sounds good. I use to watch the old Tarzan shows.

    1. I too like Karen Essex, but just FYI, Jane is by Robin Maxwell.


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