Mailbox Monday - June 1st

Mailbox Monday is hosted by Marcia at The Printed Page. To see this weeks list of participants go here.

was a good week for me. I received several ARCs and books to review - most through Shelf Awareness, but some from other sources. Here is my stack:






The Texas Billionaire's Bride by Crystal Green (the first in The Foleys & The McCords miniseries) - I received this one from the author and can't wait to read it.

A Morning Like This by Deborah Bedford - I received this through a twitter request from the Faithwords imprint. I believe this book is a reprint, but it sounds wonderful.


The Last Ember by Daniel Levin - this one is due out in August and sounds like a great suspense thriller.

Fragment by Warren Fahy - this one is due out in a few weeks and I can't wait to start it


The Actor and the Housewife by Shannon Hale - this sounds like a great fun book.




Here were my books received from booksfree:







I'm addicted to the gossip girls series, so the first two are #5 and 6. They will be quick, fun and easy reads. The second two are Flat Out Sexy by Erin McCarthy and The Preacher by Darren Dillman. Both of these sound really good. I will read these in between books for review.


I also got a whole bunch of library books. I didn't take a picture but here is what I got:



The Bay at Midnight by Diane Chamberlain

Second Opinion by Michael Palmer

Grand Avenue by Joy Fielding

Black Cross by Greg Iles

Sailing to Capri by Elizabeth Adler

Highland Fling by Katie Fforde

The Apprentice by Tess Gerritsen

The Genesis Code by John Case

Improbable by Adam Fawer

The Romanov Prophecy by Dave Berry



I also received a few from paperbackswap - but those were mainly sewing/quilting ones.

What a week! You did great, but after getting that haul you still went to the library?! When do you eat or sleep?

Crystal said...

Marie - I don't eat or sleep :) Actually I am off work at the moment, awaiting surgery and about the only thing I can do is read. And the library is my happy place.

Bonnie - I will be checking out the link and the new book!

I read a few good reviews today for The Actor and the Housewife. I added it to my TBR list. Hope you enjoy it and the rest of the books :)

I got the Shannon Hale book as well. And from your library stash, I adore Katie Fforde. her stuff is good fun.
