Mailbox Monday - 8/11/14

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.  

It was catchup time this week.  :)
On Monday, August 4, I received:

1.  THE WISHING TIDE by Barbara Davis, courtesy of Danielle Dill of Penguin Group.

I actually received the bound galley of this book from Danielle a few weeks ago and have already read THE WISHING TIDE.  

The actual book is much lighter and smaller and definitely easier to manage than the galley.  :)  That bound galley was HEAVY.

The book was wonderful.  My review will be up on August 28.

2.  HIGH SEAS DARKNESS: A Brick Morgan Novel, by Burr B. Anderson, courtesy of the author.

It looks like a good read.  I also like the cover.  You know me and covers.  :)


What books do you see here that you would want to read?  

How about your mailbox?   

Which title was in your mailbox that you were excited about seeing?




  1. I hope your mailbox was overflowing with great reads.

  2. You're the second person to say The Wishing Tide is great. I can't wait to read it!

  3. These are both new to me. The Wishing Tide has a gorgeous cover.

  4. Looking forward to your review of The Wishing Tide. :-)

  5. The Wishing Tide is one I look forward to reading. I'll watch for your review. Have a good week!

  6. The Wishing Tide was wonderful, Kathy.

    I hope you get to read it.

    THANKS for stopping.

  7. It was pretty good, and it was a great week to catch up.

    THANKS for stopping by, Pat.

  8. I love covers.

    The Wishing Tide is beautiful inside and out.

    I hope you get to read it, Holly.

    Thanks for stopping.

  9. Please stop by on August 28, Laura.

    I hope you can read The Wishing Tide. I think you will enjoy it.

    Thanks for stopping,

  10. You will enjoy The Wishing Tide, Mary.

    It was comforting.

    Thanks for stopping, Mary.

  11. Thanks for stopping, Tribute Books Mama.

    I am going to have a catchup week.

  12. I know what you mean about the covers, and these are two nice ones. I shouldn't let covers sway me, but the reality is, they do!

  13. Covers are my downfall. :)

    I usually choose winning books, though, by covers so it all works out, right?

    Thanks for stopping, Leslie.

  14. The Wishing Tide looks good. Can't wait to read your thoughts. I haven't had time to read The Paris Architect yet; maybe on one of my upcoming vacation days. :)

  15. Ok on The Paris Architect. I know you will love it.

    The Wishing Tide was soooo good.

    Thanks for stopping, Anna.

  16. Hi Elizabeth,

    I do try not to be too swayed by the look of a book, although for 'Wishing Tide' I will have to make a exception. That is one alluring cover, for what unanimously seems to be, a winning read. I shall definitely be looking out for your review.

    I am not quite so sure about 'High Seas Darkness', I don't actually think this is one for me. I usually try to steer clear of terrorist related stories, I have no urge to cruise and an investigator with a name like 'Brick Morgan', is a definite turn-off!! I would like to think that you will read this one and prove me wrong, so I shall be interested to hear what you think.

    Enjoy the rest of your week and I hope that all is well with you.


  17. I can be drawn by covers too. Both of these books have nice covers with distinct looks. :-) Happy Reading!

  18. The book was very good, Yvonne.

    I think you will like it.

    The cover pulled me in. :)

    Thanks for stopping, Yvonne.

  19. Thanks for stopping, Martha.

    I love covers. :)

  20. Wordsandpeace....I loved The Wishing Tide.

    Thanks for stopping.

  21. The Wishing Tide sounds good. Enjoy your reading week! :)

  22. Thanks for stopping, Kay.

    I really enjoyed The Wishing Tide.
