Mailbox Monday #124


Mailbox Monday means a new week has begun – and that mean’s new books have arrived in my mailbox and probably yours as well!

I received 3 books this week – 2 paper-copy and one ebook.

The ebook I received was a win from So Many Precious Books, So Little Time – The Secret Letters of Marilyn Monroe and Jacqueline Kennedy by Wendy Leigh.  This sounds like an interesting – but entirely unbelievable – concept.  However, I do love reading about First Ladies. 

I also picked up a book on one of this nations favorite Presidents – Thomas Jefferson.  I am participating in a read-along with the History Book Club on Goodreads and was selected to receive a copy of the book, Thomas Jefferson: The Art of Power by Jon Meacham, from the publisher to participate.  I will be reviewing it sometime in late February at the end of the read-along.  Meacham has written a couple other books of my reading list about presidents so I am looking forward to this.

I also received, for review as part of the HFBRT tour, a copy of The Gilded Lily by Deborah Swift.  I am about 20 pages in so far and really enjoying it.  Expect a review and giveaway on November 19th. 

So that’s it for me – how about you?

Mailbox Monday is on a monthly blog tour and for the month of November it is being hosted by Edgy Inspirational Romance.

  1. The Gilded Lily was great! Can't wait to see what you think of it.

  2. I can't wait to get my hands on 'The Gilded Lily'. I have read Deborah Swift's other book, 'The Lady's Slipper' and loved it and I hope this new one is just as good as the last. Glad to see you are enjoying it. Happy reading.


    1. I haven't had the chance to read The Lady's Slipper yet but I have wanted to!

  3. Great books! I hope you enjoy them. The Gilded Lily was really good. Have a great week!
