Mailbox Monday 9/1

It's time for another Mailbox Monday which was created by Marcia at To Be Continued.

Mailbox Monday is the gathering place for readers to share the books that came into their house last week... Warning: Mailbox Monday can lead to envy, toppling TBR piles and humongous wish list

I was out of town last weekend for a family funeral and missed posting Mailbox Monday.  Here's what has arrived over the past two weeks.

Diamond Rings are Deadly Things by Rachelle J. Christensen, via Netgalley
Love's Fortune by Laura Frantz (for review from Revell)

Yesterday's Tomorrow by Catherine West (for review)
The House We Grew Up In by Lisa Jewell, via Netgalley (for review from Simon & Schuster)

The Sea House by Elisabeth Gifford (for review from Litfuse Publicity)
Who R U Really? by Margo Kelly (for review from Merit Press)

Diary of Two Mad Black Mormons by Zandra Vranes and Tamu Smth, via Netgalley
Royal Secrets by Kathleen Irene Paterka, via Netgalley (for review from Victory Editing)

A Child is Born: A Nightingales Christmas Story by Donna Douglas, Kindle purchase
Prince Harry: Brother, Soldier, Son by Penny Junor, via Netgalley

I won't list the two library books because, damn! I have too many in my TBR stack as it is and why am I adding library books to it?

What new books did you receive?  Check out more Mailbox Monday posts here.


  1. Oh, I want to read The House We Grew Up In. My mom would probably love the Prince Harry book.

  6. I've had my eye on Who R U Really and the Lisa Jewell book looks good too. Happy reading!

  16. Hi Holly,

    I hope that things aren't too quiet for you now that the boys are back at school for the new year.

    I am sorry to hear of your sad loss and hope that things went as well as could be expected when you went out of town.

    I can't believe the amazing size of your mailbox, there is almost too much choice!

    'The House We Grew Up In' has featured on several blogs just recently, so this one is already on my 'Want To Read' list. I shall look forward to reading your thoughts about it, should you decide to review.

    I also love the cover art for 'Another Summer', especially as our own UK Summer is now slipping silently but firmly, into Autumn.

    Thanks for sharing,


  17. I will be reading The House We Grew Up in too - looking forward to it! Have a great week!
