Mailbox Monday: June edition
Mailbox Monday is on tour and for June it is being hosted at The Bluestocking Guide. Head over there to share your links, or to see what everyone else has posted about this week.
Radio Shangri-La by Lisa Napoli - I won this as part of Armchair BEA and I was very glad to get my first choice which was this book.
The Making of a Gentleman by Shana Galen - Jenny from Jenny Loves to Read sent me this to read. I read the first book in the trilogy a while ago and whilst I wasn't blown away with it, I did really like the concept so I will give this one a go.
Just Like Heaven by Julia Quinn - I was out for lunch with some of the ARRA girls and we visited the specialty romance store in Melbourne, and I couldn't leave without buying something. I read this and it started a Julia Quinn reading jag!
Caleb's Crossing by Geraldine Brooks - I went and saw Geraldine Brooks speak a few weeks ago and wanted to get a book signed so I had to buy it first!
The Katyn Order by Douglas W Jacobson - There was a mix up for a blog tour which meant I didn't get this book when I was meant to. However I really wanted to read it, so ended up buying it myself.
Unveiled by Courtney Milan - There's been a lot of buzz about this novella. I haven't read the other connected books to this one, but I will.
The Debutante's Dilemna by Elyse Mady, Friendly Fire by Megan Hart, Demon's Fall by Karalynn Lee and The Twisted Tale Stormy Gale by Christine Bell were all free downloads from Carina Press last week.
The Ex Boyfriend's Handbook by Matt Dunn and Dating Mr December by Philippa Ashley are both supposed to be fun reads, which sounded perfect to me at the time.
One Good Reason by Sarah Mayberry - I have read a couple of this author's books this year, so I grabbed this one when I saw it.
The Wind Up Girl by Paolo Bacigalupi - Heard lots of good things about this one.
The Very Thought of You by Rosie Alison - This was nominated for the Orange Prize so should hopefully be a good read.
City of Promise by Beverly Swerling - I have really enjoyed all the other books in this series, so the chance to read the final book was one that I couldn't pass up!
Grave Sight graphic novel - I have read the series that this is based on, so thought I would see how the graphic novel version was.
Accidents of Providence by Stacia Brown - I have read quite a few books set in the court of Charles II, but not a lot about what happened during the time of Charles I.
Sylvester by Georgette Heyer - I always feel as though I should have read more Heyer!
