Mailbox Monday July 8

Wow, I had no idea it had been so long since I posted. Life is crazier than ever. My mom is still going through chemo but doing well. Work is crazier than ever. My middle son is engaged, planning a wedding and is in the process of moving out. Life is hectic and crazy!

I am very sad about Google Reader being gone. I am trying out several replacement readers but so far I have not found the one for me. I have tried Inoreader, Feedly and Feedreader and a few others. I sure wish I could find one exactly like Google Reader. Any suggestions?

I hope to post a review this week for Looking For Me by Beth Hoffman. I really enjoyed this book! Beth is a wonderful writer! Her characters always find a special place in my heart!

I have received a few books recently. July's Mailbox Monday host is Tasha at Book Obsessed.

What wonderful books made their way into your home?


  1. It sounds like you've got a lot going on. I'm glad to hear your mom is doing well.

    Necessary Lies sounds terrific!

    I'm using Feedly and have tweaked it to look sort of like Google Reader.

  2. I adored Beth Hoffman's book too...and now I see that I must add the new Cathleen Schine read. I've already preordered Necessary Lies from Diane Chamberlain.

    Thanks for visiting my blog.

  3. I have Songs of Willow Frost. Hope we both like it!

  4. I've been watching for an update on your mom. Though it surely must be a rough road for her and those who love her, I'm so glad to hear that she's doing well.

    Wow ... it sounds like you have a very busy schedule coming up, weddings can take an enormous amount of time and energy. But I'm sure it will be wonderful!

    Thank you for your kind words about my novel.

  5. I am using Bloglovin'. It is easy and undemanding. Enjoy your week!

  6. Sounds like you got your plate full. Make sure you take some for yourself so you don't burn out. I now use Bloglovin' and like it. Enjoy your new books!

  7. Wow your life is busy! I'm glad your mom is doing well. I loved Looking For Me. I just wanted to hug it when I finished reading ;-) I'm using Bloglovin' - it works for me. I don't follow a lot of blogs - maybe a couple dozen. Have a good week.

  8. You certainly have a lot on your plate! I've been using Feedly and I love it so far. Enjoy your new books!

  9. Hope things calm down soon. So much for you to handle.

    Looks like you have gotten FAB books. LOOKING FOR ME was wonderful, wasn't it?

    I can't wait to read Songs of Willow Frost. Haven't heard of Fin And Lady, but it sounds good.

    ENJOY your week, and take care.
