Mailbox Monday May 2
It's Mailbox Monday! I love checking out everyone's mailboxes and adding books to my wish list. Be sure to check out all the posts over at MariReads. Thank you Mari for hosting Mailbox Monday for the month of May.
My mailbox has been quite busy lately. I am having to spend much more time outside with the dogs so hopefully I will get caught up on all this reading. I keep the book I am reading by the back door so I can just slip some flip flops on and grab my book and out we go. The dogs can spend hours just sniffing outside. It's their favorite past time. Back to the mailbox...I received three books for review and I purchased one book (I actually pre-ordered it) and picked one book up at the library sale rack for $1.00. If you have read any of the titles, I'd love to hear what you thought of them. The titles are linked to Goodreads if you want to check them out.
The Oracle of Stamboul by Michael David Lukas received from Harper Collins through Amazon Vine
The Butterfly's Daughter by Mary Alice Monroe received from Gallery Books through Goodreads First Reads Program
The Soldier's Wife by Margaret Leroy received through Voice/Hyperion
The Violets of March by Sarah Jio This is my pre-ordered book...I have heard so many great things about this book that I had to have it.
Wolf Hall by Hilary Mantel This I found on the library sale and for a buck I thought I would give it a shot.
I am off to see what wonderful goodies made their way into your home.
