Mailbox Monday is on tour and for June it is being hosted at A Sea of Books. Head over there to share your links, or to see what everyone else has posted about this week.
Nanberry by Jackie French - I have read one Jackie French novel before, so thought I would give this one a go when I saw it up for grabs.
Empire Day by Diane Armstrong - This is a new author to me, and the setting of just after the end of WWII sounds fascinating.
The Name of the Star by Maureen Johnson - A new series from Maureen Johnson, and I wanted to get in early for the first books.
Sweet Invention by Michael Krondl - a history of dessert, and a future Weekend Cooking post I am sure.
The King's Courtesan by Judith James - I have heard such good things about Judith James, and even own one of her other books!
Unclaimed by Courtney Milan - There has been a lot of hype about the novella that precedes this book. I own it, so I wanted to have this one lined up ready to go when I read the first book and the novella.
Murder in the Kitchen by Alice B Toklas and Exciting Food for Southern Types by Pellegrino Artusi - Two books from the Penguin Great Food Series. I have already posted about Murder in the Kitchen.
Exclusively Yours, Undeniably Yours and Yours to Keep by Shannon Stacey - I downloaded Exclusively Yours one Friday night, read it and then got up at 6am on a Saturday morning and downloaded the next two, and then proceeded to read both of them straight through. So good!
Dragon Bound by Thea Harrison - I have heard so many good things about this book and it is not yet available from the library so I decided just to buy it.
Dear Cupid, Falling for You, Lean on Me and Don't Tempt Me by Julie Ortolon - I read Julie Ortolon five years ago but then had lost track of her. Now that her backlist is digitised I ended up buying all the ones I hadn't yet read.
The Mistress House by Leigh Michaels, The Fire Lord's Lover by Kathryne Kennedy and Never a Bride by Amelia Grey - These are all new to me authors but they sounded interesting so I thought I would try them out.
The Other Countess by Eve Edwards - My local bookstore had a contest! The owner knows what I will like and so gave me this YA historical fiction.
