Mailbox Monday August 5, 2013

Welcome to Mailbox Monday.
For AUGUST: the Mailbox Monday Tour host is Penelope @ The Reading Fever. If Penelope doesn't post then the the link will be at Bermudaonion (thanks Kathy).
Mailbox Monday is a gathering place for readers to share the books that came into their house last week and explore great book blogs.  This Meme started with Marcia at A Girl and Her Books (fka The Printed Page) but is now hosted at Mailbox Monday and through various blog hosts.

Warning: Mailbox Monday can lead to envy, toppling TBR piles and humongous wish lists.


I received one ebook for review, one special free and I picked up the free audio titles from SYNC YA. 

Are your mailbox and TBR piles blooming?

Review Titles
I signed up for this tour through Random House at the end of June but forgot to list the title.
Besides, I just downloaded it from NetGalley.

Free
I reviewed The Hero's Lot by Patrick W. Carr last week. I saw on Facebook that the first book in the series was free for Kindle and Nook so I picked it up! As of Sunday night it is still available free.

Here is another good pair -- as they say -- It's Elementary!

  1. Nice haul. You got lots of books. Ashlyn Macnamara is really sweet. She was at Lady Jane's Salon a few months ago. Nice haul.

  3. Oh, I'd like to read a Sherlock Holmes book - it never occurred to me to try it on audio.

  5. I picked up a copy of Death Cloud a year or two ago that I've still yet to read. Although seeing everyone sharing their free copies this week it's making me want to finally go and start it.
