Mailbox Monday September 29, 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 and won a book perfect for October reading.
I purchased seven $.99 Kindle books.
I also 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 accepted two titles to review from authors I have previously read:

Ruptured: The Cantati Chronicles
by Maggie Mae Gallagher
This is a prequel novella to this series.

(A Short Story)
by Matthew Iden
A missing child heads this mystery.

I received this Political Suspense from New Shelves Distribution:

The Founders' Plot 
by Frank Victoria
Debut author Victoria’s topical thriller follows the political and personal reverberations of a tough and controversial immigration law in California.

I won this at Kathi Daley's facebook page where she has been
giving away ebooks and print books.
by Kathi Daley
This looks like a fun cozy mystery perfect for October reading!

I purchased seven $.99 books at Amazon Kindle - I guess I have low control of my impulse buying:

Gilbert Morris

Silent Waters
Jan Coffey, May McGoldrick

Lee Strauss, Elle Strauss

(Triple Treat Romances Book 2)
Donna Hatch, Marie Higgins, G.G. Vandagriff

Small Town Charm, Love & Mystery Boxed Set

Barbara Freethy, Carly Phillips, Christie Ridgway, Barbara Samuel, Roxanne St. Claire

5 Paranormal New Adult Novels

I downloaded another 54 free Kindle titles. Titles found linked through Bookbub, Bookfun, Ereader News Today, Free Par-tay, Inspired Reads, Pixel of Ink or Kindle ebooks.


  1. Pumpkins In Paradise looks good as well as The Kindness of Neighbors! Enjoy all your books!

  2. I get skittish if I have 20 books on my Kindle!!! how on earth do you manage what to read first!!!!

    1. Hi Mystica- Maybe when I say I downloaded that is misleading. I "purchased" them for free but I leave them on my Amazon/Kindle library. I have asked if there is a way to not have books automatically delivered to my Kindle Generation 2 and I have been told there is not. So I no longer turn on the internet for that unit and only transfer books by USB. I have about 150 on it at one time organized in different folders. Every once in a while I'll take some time to delete some. There are only three pages of current titles on the front at any time.

  3. Pumpkins in Paradise sounds like a fun, seasonal read!

  4. I've been wanting to read the Kathi Daley books. They look so good. This is the perfect time of year for them, too.

    I get crazy with the Kindle freebies...the 99 cent ones look tempting too.

    Have a great week!

  5. Mysteries are such fun in the Fall (or any time!). And I love the cover of Pumpkins in Paradise. Enjoy your books...and thanks for visiting my blog.

  6. Enjoy your new books, and congrats on your win! Have a great week.

  7. Pumpkins in Paradise sounds like a fun seasonal read :) I won't tell Mystica how many books are on my Kindle at the moment, LOL.

  8. I like Pumpkins in Paradise. :)

    ENJOY all your books and your reading week.
