In My Mailbox

I am participating in this weekly meme hosted by The Story Siren, where we share what books we have received this week.

I was fortunate to receive a lot of e-books in giveaways and one paperback for review.

Grave Robbers
by Samantha Jillian Bayarr (Kindle format)

I was the winner of the Midsummer's Eve Blog Hop hosted by Livingston Hall Publishers. Thank you, Livingston Hall Publishers!

Between The Land And The Sea (Marina Tales, #1)
The Moon And The Tide (Marina Tales, #2)
by Derrolyn Anderson
I won both e-books in the Midsummer's Eve Blog Hop hosted by Jennifer at Clean Romance Reviews. Thank you, Jennifer and Derrolyn!

Fifty Shades of Grey
by E.L. James
(Kindle format)

I was a winner in the Fifty Shades of Grey - E.L. James Blog Tour Book Giveaway hosted by Krishna at Journey With Books.

Thank you, Krishna and Donna Huber (marketing director)!

Days of Iron
by Russell Proctor
Format: Paperback

This book was given to me by the author for review.

Thank you, Russell!

Last week I had announced that I had won The Russian Affair in a giveaway held by Jodie M. Webb at Words by Webb. Unfortunately, the publisher does not mail to Canada. Instead, Jodie has gifted me with three e-books as a consolation:

Iris Avenue (Rose Hill Mystery Series)by Pamela Grandstaff
FM For Murder (Pamela Barnes Acoustic Mystery) by Patricia Rockwell
California Schemin' (The Bree MacGowan Series) by Kate George

Thanks, Jodi, for all these great mysteries!

True of Blood
(Book #1 of the Witch Fairy Series) by Bonnie Lamer (e-book)
Essence of Re (Book #1 of the Eliana Brennan Series) by Bonnie Lamer (e-book)

I won both of these e-books in an Author Review and Giveaway hosted by Coreena McBurnie at Books and Other Creative Adventures. Thank you, Coreena and Bonnie!

  5. Hi, everyone! Sorry for not acknowledging your posts sooner but I am battling a raging outer ear infection (again) and am drugged up on Tylenol 3s.

    It would be a perfect time for some reading, except that the T3s put me to sleep!

    I can't wait to start reading again!

    Thanks, everyone, for letting me know which books you have read. I will hop over to your blogs to read your reviews after I have finished mine!

  6. Grave Robbers is one I'm interested in reading.

    I, too, am intrigued with Grave Robbers. I think that one has generated a lot of interest!

    I'll be posting reviews on these books as I get to reading them.
