Mailbox Monday - 6/23/14

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, 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.  


How many books did you receive this week? 

My son brought all my BEA books with him on Thursday, and I received four other books in the mail.

On Monday, June 16, I received:

1.  WOMEN OF VALOR by Joanne D. Gilbert courtesy of Stephen Feuer of Gihon River Press.

I have reviewed a few books for Stephen. My favorite was Ursla's Prism by Anna Block.

2.  PREVIOUSLY LOVED TREASURES by Bette Lee Crosby, courtesy of the author.

I LOVE Bette's books.  I can't wait to read this sequel to The Twelfth Child.

On Wednesday, June 18, I received:
1.  THE WINTER SEA by Susanna Kearsley, courtesy of Sourcebooks.

I have always wanted to read Susanna's books, but never could a copy.  I met the lovely ladies of Sourcebooks at the BEA this spring, and they sent me a copy.  Now I have THREE of her books, and can't wait to start reading them.

On Saturday, June 21, I received:

1.  SWEET WATER by Christina Baker Kline, courtesy of Alaina Waagner of Harper Collins.

I loved Ms. Kline's book, The Orphan Train, and was excited to receive a copy of her newest book.


  1. Elizabeth you scored some excellent books, I do hope you enjoy reading them. A BEA advantage!

  2. Hi Kathryn. It is always nice to wake up to a comment from you. :)

    Yes...the BEA does have advantages. :)

    THANKS for stopping.

  3. Looks like a great collection. I enjoyed Winter Sea. Have a great week.

  4. I have Sweet Water on Sparky...and Bette Lee Crosby's Jubilee's Journey on my soon-to-read stack. Enjoy!


  5. So many good ones to chose from in this mailbox!

  6. I heard so many great things about The Winter Sea! Hope you enjoy all your books; happy reading!

  7. Winter Sea sounds good, enjoy! all your reads.

  8. You sure had an awesome mailbox last week, they all look good!
    I love Bette Lee Crosby!!

  9. I love Bette Lee Crosby too, Vicki.

    I met her at the BEA...such a lovely person.

    THANKS for stopping, Vicki.

  10. I am looking forward to reading The Winter Sea.

    Thanks for stopping, Tribute Books Mama.

  11. I hear good things about all of her books, but The Winter Sea seems to be the most favorite.

    Thanks for stopping, Kay.

  12. I am going to have a hard time choosing, but I usually read them in the order of publication date.

    Thanks for stopping, Serena.

  13. You will LOVE Jubilee's Journey.

    Great to hear Sweet Water is good. I loved her other book.

    Thanks for stopping, Laurel.

  14. Thanks for the endorsement for Winter Sea. I love the cover too.

    Can't wait to read it and all her other books.

    Thanks for stopping, Pat.

  15. I liked The Winter Sea so I hope you enjoy it!

  16. I think Sweetwater sounds wonderful --enjoy all.

  17. Good to hear, Mary. Now I have to make time to read it. I love the cover.

    I hear Winter Sea is the best one, but I hope all the books are good. :) I am sure they are.

    Thanks for stopping, Mary.

  18. I am sure it is as good as The Orphan Train. It looks and sounds very good.

    Thanks for stopping, Diane.

  19. Hi Elizabeth,

    No shortage of great new reading material this week then!

    All of your authors are new to me, although Susanna Kearsley has been on my 'to read' list for some time, after being recommended so often!

    In fact all of your fiction choices have made it to my list, as I couldn't separate them to pick a favourite.

    I did smile when I discovered that the family name in 'Previously Loved Treasures', is SweetWater and the title of one of your books is 'Sweet Water' ... I don't generally believe in coincidences, but!!!

    Have a great week and Happy Reading.


  20. I've yet to read a single thing by Susanna Kearsley either. Which is a shame because I've heard such, such great things about her. Eventually though I'm sure I'll get to her, and I hope you enjoy her!

  21. Shoshanah - I am looking forward to reading her books.

    I hope you get to read them too.

    Thanks for stopping.

  22. You are right, Yvonne. The name Sweetwater is in Bette's book. :) A coincidence for sure or something that tells you to read both of them. :)

    I LOVED Jubilee's Journey and The Twelfth Child.

    I hope you get to read Bette's books and Susanna's.

    THANKS for stopping.

  23. I LOVED The Winter Sea! Probably my favorite read last year - enjoy!

  24. I hear so many good things about it, stacybuckeye. That's why I was really intent on getting it.

    THANKS for letting me know, and thanks for stopping.
