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 #127


Here we are at another Monday – and boy do I have a bunch of books to tell you about!  I went a little crazy on Netgalley and buying Kindle books…

Requested from Netgalley I received:

Do you notice a trend?  I also requested Houses of the Presidents by Hugh Howard (NF) by they haven’t responded yet.  Christmas at the White House I have been going through over the last couple of days – it has some beautiful pictures of White House Christmases of the past – very seasonal.  I’m most excited to read Mrs. Lincoln’s Dressmaker tho!  At least they will  fall under my perpetual President and First Lady challenge.

Purchased for my Kindle I received:

I’m not a huge Historical Romance fan but after hosting interviews recently with both of these authors I am intrigued by their books.

I also received a couple of books for review:

  • Lincoln by David Herbert Donald (received from Simon & Schuster Audio)
  • A Thousand Lives by Julia Scheeres (received from Simon & Schuster)

I started the Lincoln book last week and it is a different sort of view on the man – whose backstory I found I didn’t actually know too much about either.

So that it for me (and it is certainly enough)!  What came for you this week?

Mailbox Monday is on a monthly blog tour and for the month of December it is being hosted by Suko’s Notebook.
