Mailbox Monday September 22, 2014

Welcome to Mailbox Monday.
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) and after a tour of hosts has returned to its permanent home at Mailbox Monday.
Thanks to the ladies sharing hosting duties: Leslie of Under My Apple Tree, Serena of Savvy Verse & Wit and Vicki of I'd Rather Be at the Beach.
Warning: Mailbox Monday can lead to envy, toppling TBR piles and humongous wish lists.

I received three review books to start preparing for the holiday season. I also selected an Audible book with one of my monthly credits. I purchased three $.99 Kindle books.
I also discovered six free Audible books and downloaded many free kindle titles.

(I still have many author requests to consider and reply to. I just haven't found time to cull through these)

Are your mailbox and TBR piles blooming?

Review Titles
I was invited to read several Christmas titles so I received three from NetGalley this week:
All three of these will be read in October

Mistletoe on Main Street 
by Olivia Miles
Sleigh bells, snow, and second chances . . .
Now, with their past, present, and future rocking around the Christmas tree, it's time for Grace and Luke to face the music . . . and the mistletoe.

by Debbie Mason
"Christmas, Colorado, will get you in the spirit for love all year long." --- Jill Shalvis, New York Times bestselling author
Love is the best Christmas gift of all.
If word ever got out about their night together-the night he's never been able to forget-the scandal could cripple his career. Yet as he starts his campaign, Ethan finds that, like the town of Christmas itself, he can't get Skye out of his head . . . or his heart.

by Grace Burrowes
The Best Gifts are the Unexpected Ones...
As Christmas—and trouble—draw nearer, Dante and Joan's marriage of convenience blossoms into unexpected intimacy, for true love often hides beneath the most unassuming holiday wrapping...



I selected this title with one of my Audible credits; I'm holding the other credit till I decide.

  6. I love the cover of Mistletoe on Main Street. I have Grace Burrowes book too, and should be a good read.

  7. I love Christmas books. Last year I didn't get a chance to read any Christmas themed books before Christmas. I should start reading these earlier this year. All three of these books look wonderful.
