*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 #146

MM

It’s Mailbox Monday time again – and this week my inbox received more love than my mailbox actually did.  Here is what I received this week:

mm146

  • Isle of Shadows by Tracy L. Higley – I got the tip off that this was on major sale on Kindle at Amazon, and I had been looking at her books for awhile, so I struck while the iron was hot (purchased).
  • Keowee Valley by Katherine Scott Crawford – I was intrigued by this novel because it is set during the colonial period of the United States and because there are Native American elements in the novel. (Received for review from the author via Netgalley).
  • In Defense of the Queen by Michell Diener – I have been looking at Diener’s novels for some time, now just seemed the right time to take on one of them.  Although this is the 3rd book in the series, I have heard that this is supposed to be able to stand alone. (Received for review from the author via Netgalley).
  • The Shogun’s Daughter by Laura Joh Rowland – I haven’t read very much at all set in any Asian countries.  This is set in 1700’s Japan and is the 17th book in a series!  Again, I have read that these can stand alone and I’m taking a chance on a culture/time/place that will be entirely new to me.  (Received via Netgally as part of HFVBT Tour).
  • The Study of Murder by Susan McDuffie – I seem to be reading more historical mysteries lately and this is another one of those.  I met the author on the van to HNS and accept a review copy of this book.  This was my only physical book received this week.

What did you get this week?

Mailbox Monday is on a monthly blog tour and for the month of July it is being hosted by Book Obsessed.
