Mailbox Monday August 9

Mailbox Monday is the gathering place for readers to share the books that came into their house last week. Warning: Mailbox Monday can lead to envy, toppling TBR piles and humongous wish lists.

This month's hostess is Shanyn at Chick Loves Lit. Thank you Shanyn for hosting. Be sure to check out her blog.

I received 5 books this past week. One was a win and the others are for review.

The Particular Sadness of Lemon Cake by Aimee Bender

This was a win from Nicole at My Book Views. Thank you Nicole!

To Your Dog's Health by Mark Poveromo
I received this for review from Lisa. Thank you Lisa! I am very interested in this as I have a dog with food issues. I have been reading a bit of this book and it is very interesting. I will be writing a full review after I read the whole book.

Russian Winter by Daphne Kalotay
I received this book for review from Harper Collins through Shelf Awareness. Thank you to them both. This has a beautiful cover. This looks to be a very good romance with a bit of mystery thrown in. I love a good story set behind the Iron Curtain.

Eighteen Acres by Nicolle Wallace
I receeived this book for review from Simon and Schuster through Shelf Awareness. Thank you to them both. This is a novel written by a political commentator. This sounds like it should be very good!

Keep The Change by Steve Dublanica
This I received for review from Harper Collins also. Thank you to them again. We have an ongoing argument around our house as to how much one should tip in certain situations. I thought this would be the perfect book to address that situation with!

I'm probably driving everyone nuts with my changing of how I do my Mailbox Monday posts. I am trying new ways out as to how I list the books. Any feedback is greatly appreciated.

So what interesting things did you find in your mailbox?


  1. Doesn't RUSSIAN WINTER sound sooo good? Something to really get lost in. Enjoy!

  2. I also have "The Particular Sadness of Lemon Cake" in my tbr pile so will be interesting to see if we think the same about it.

  3. Envy very envious of your Russian Winter and The Particular Sadness of Lemon Cake. Congrats on your winnings!

    Have a great reading week and can't wait to see what you think of Russian Winter.

  4. I have The Particular Sadness Of Lemon Cake and To Your Dog's Health.

    I need to get Keep The Change because my husband and I never agree on how much to leave for a tip. I was a waitress many years ago so I know how stressful it can be so I always want to leave more.

  5. I've heard great things about the Lemon Cake book! I am also intrigued by the Russian Winter book. Happy reading!

  6. You have a lot of good books there. I've been drawn to The Particular Sadness of Lemon Cake just because I love that title! I need to read Your Dog's Health. Feedback: I like the way you did this with a picture of the cover, a link to info about the book and a little comment as to why you have that book!

  7. Russian Winter looks good. I have been curious about The Particular Sadness of Lemon Cake for awhile.

  13. I really want to get my hands on a copy of the Lemon Cake book. I think my family could use the tip book too. I think my husband tips too much, not that I'm cheap or anything, but he gives huge tips.
