Mailbox Monday #77

This week I picked up three very good books - one of which came in the mailbox, two I got at Barnes and Noble, but I wanted to include them anyway.

For review from Amazon Vine I received the audiobook of The American Heiress by Daisy Goodwin.  It couldn't have come at a better time, as that day I had finished my previous audiobook.  And let me tell you....it's SO good!  I am very much enjoying this book.  I also didn't know it was set partially in Newport, RI during the time of the fabulous mansions.  You can listen to a clip from this audiobook to see what I mean.

Friday night we went to Barnes and Noble to get The Map of Time by Felix J Palma for my boyfriend - which I am intending to read at some point after he is done.  He is enjoying it so far.  I have been very excited about this one.

Then while I was at the store I finally found the religious fiction section - I had been looking for a couple of books for awhile but couldn't find the section - and then I realized there was another section of store that I hadn't noticed before and there it was!  SO I was able to pick up book 2 in The Great War Series -  Whisper on the Wind by Maureen Lang.  I still don't have book 1, but I have now found books 2 and 3.

Mailbox Monday was created by Marcia at The Printed Page but it is now on a monthly blog tour.  For the month of July it will be hosted by Gwendolyn B at A Sea of Books.
