Mailbox Monday - 7/26/16

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 lists!

Mailbox Monday, created by Marcia @ A Girl and Her Books, has a permanent home now at Mailbox Monday.
Every week Mailbox Monday will have a new linky posted for our Mailbox Monday links at Marcia's Mailbox Monday blog.
Here’s a shout out to the new administrators:

Leslie of Under My Apple Tree 
Vicki of I’d Rather Be at the Beach
Serena @ Savvy Verse And Wit 

THANKS to everyone for keeping Mailbox Monday alive.
I hope you had a good mailbox.

I had a very good mailbox.  Needed some cheering up after my family left.
On Monday, July 18, I received:

1.  ALONG THE INFINITE SEA by Beatriz Williams, courtesy of Danielle Dill of Penguin Random House.

The paperback copy I received is in celebration of the release of the paperback copy.

I will have a giveaway celebration on my blog for ALONG THE INFINITE SEA on August 9.  

Mark your calendars if you haven't read the book yet.
On Wednesday, July 20, I received:

1.  CAROUSEL COURT by Joe McGinniss, Jr. courtesy of Simon & Schuster.  

It was a surprise.
On Thursday, July 21, I received:

1.  WATCHING EDIE by Camilla Way, courtesy of Loren Jaggers of Penguin Random House.

On Friday, July 22, I received:

1.  FREE FALL by Rick Mofina, courtesy of  Christi Sheehan of Harper Collins.

This was a surprise book.

On Saturday, July 23, I received:

1.  TAHOE DARK by Todd Borg, courtesy of the author.

I always enjoy Mr. Borg's books.

I was quoted in the front of TAHOE DARK with my comment from my review of TAHOE BLUE FIRE.

 Harvee Lau, from Book Dilettante is quoted quite a bit too.  :)  CONGRATS, Harvee Lau.
