Mailbox Monday #93

A slow mailbox for me this week - and I didn't even get any books for Christmas, which is fine as I have way more than enough!

But I did get...

Provisions and Politics: Recipes Honoring First Lady Sarah Polk to use for my Weekend Cooking posts.  I think I'm making a recipe from it this week!  Lots of great southern cooking in this one.

Midwife of the Blue Ridge from author Christine Blevins as part of the blog tour for her new book The Turning of Anne Merrick.  I also got some cute soap, tea, and candles that go along with each of her books.

From Sourcebooks I received A Light on the Veranda by Ciji Ware for review.  I loved A Race to Splendor by the same author and am excited to read this one!

Hope you all have great Christmases and received some awesome books!

Mailbox Monday is on a monthly blog tour and is being hosted for the month of December at Let Them Read Books

  1. Ciji Ware is another author that is on my "must get to in 2012" list. I've heard Island of the Swans is a good one by her too.

  2. Enjoy your new books! I'm expecting some Christine Blevins books in the mail soon :-)

    I'm with Holly, I need to read Ciji Ware in 2012.

  3. I have a few Ciji Ware books but haven;t gotten to them yet. We all need a Ciji Ware challenge! I hear her books are very good.

  4. Yes, I must read something by Ciji Ware this year! Enjoy your reads.


  5. Add me to the list of those who want to read a Ciji Ware book in 2012 :)

  6. Share a recipe from Sarah Polk with us next Saturday on weekend cooking over at Beth Fish Reads! http://www.bethfishreads.com/
    It's a great weekly cooking meme!

  7. Great books! I also received The Midwife of Blue Ridge and The Tory Widow. Wasn't that just wonderful of Christine to send us those extra gifts? I love all of them!

    Hope you had a wonderful Christmas and wishing you a very happy New Year! Sorry I haven't been around much. I'm hoping stop around at blogs more often in the new year (one of my many resolutions!).

  8. Ladies - it sounds like we all need to get into some Ciji Ware books!

    Michelle - it was such a nice surprise - I can't wait to get into the books.

    Peggy - I did my first Weekend Cooking post last Saturday and enjoyed it. I am actually planning on a Sarah Polk recipe for this week.
