Mailbox Monday ~ October 6th

FloralFallMailbox-smlWelcome to Mailbox Monday, created by Marcia of To Be Continued, a place where readers share the books that came in their mailbox during the last week.

After several years of being on tour with different blogs as the monthly host, the Mailbox Monday Blog is now the permanent home for the meme.


Last week I received a few new books and some audio downloads. I’m excited about the new cookbook, especially since it has the word ‘easy’ in the title and gorgeous photos of each finished dish. I was getting hungry flipping through the pages.

New Arrivals


Woman with a Gun by Phillip Margolin from Harper and TLC Book Tours.
Master of mystery Phillip Margolin transcends his traditional territory in this new and different book, a haunting thriller inspired by an unforgettable photograph.

Web of Betrayal by Clare F. Price from the author and Tandem Literary.
The year is 1994, the dawn of the Internet Age, when companies from Silicon Valley to London are fighting to claim the billions to be made on the new information highway.
[Click HERE for more info and a chance to win a copy of the book.]

Easy Gourmet by Stephanie Le from Page Street Publishing through AmazonVine.
Make the most delicious and gourmet dishes you’ve ever had with little to no effort, regardless of your experience in the kitchen.

Audiobook Downloads


From Random House Audio

Station Eleven by Emily St. John Mandel
An audacious, darkly glittering novel set in the eerie days of civilization’s collapse, Station Eleven tells the spellbinding story of a Hollywood star, his would-be savior, and a nomadic group of actors roaming the scattered outposts of the Great Lakes region, risking everything for art and humanity.

Spark by John Twelve Hawks
Edgy, hard-core, and wildly imaginative, this new thriller from New York Times bestselling author John Twelve Hawks features an assassin-narrator unlike anyone we’ve seen before, set in a present-day dystopia.

The Woman Who Would Be King by Kara Cooney
An engrossing biography of the longest-reigning female pharaoh in Ancient Egypt and the story of her audacious rise to power in a man’s world.

How was your week?

    Always happy to read a new Margolin. And I enjoyed Twelve Hawks’ trilogy from a number of years ago. Might try his latest.
