Mailbox Monday - 9/23/13



 
 
Mailbox Monday is the gathering place for readers to share the books that came into their house last week. (Library books don’t count, but eBooks & audiobooks do). 
 
Warning: Mailbox Monday can lead to envy, toppling TBR piles, and humongous wish lists!

Mailbox Monday, created by Marcia @ A Girl and Her Books, is on a blog tour!

On Monday, September 16, I received:

1.  TEATIME FOR THE FIREFLY by Shona Patel, courtesy of Emer Flounders of Harlequin/MIRA.

This was an unsolicited book, but it looks good.


On Thursday, September 19, I received:

1.  THE EXILES by Allison Lynn, courtesy of Nadia Anguiano of A Bookish Way of Life and the publisher.

I won this book in a contest on Nadia's blog.  THANKS.

    It is a pretty cover isn't it as well as interesting? Tea and fireflies? Cute. THANKS for stopping by, Harvee.

  6. Hi Elizabeth,

    I like the sound of both your books, however if I had to choose just one to add to my ever-growing list, it would probably be 'Teatime For The Firefly'. Although you say that this was an unsolicited review copy, the book is receiving some very favourable reviews and ratings and there is an unusual and intriguing quality about the premise.

    Enjoy both of your new finds and have a good week.

  19. Hope you enjoy them, Elizabeth! I've had several light weeks lately - just not accepting as many review books due to a backlog. Loving most of what I read though :) Have a great week!

  21. Exiles looks very interesting. I can't ride a bike. It's a dream to learn how to ride a bike. When I see a bike, I get excited. There is a bike on the cover of Exiles which makes me really interested.
