In My Mailbox

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

It was a slow week for blog-hopping, but I'm gearing up for the Summer Giveaway Hop starting tomorrow! Below are a few giveaways and quite a few new books for review that I received this week.

I won Heart of Farellah, Book 1 by Brindi Lundberg (e-book) in a giveaway hosted by Heather at Earth's Book Nook.

Thanks again, Heather & Brindi!

Even though I did not win her giveaway, Rachel Cotterill still gifted me with her e-book entitled Rebellion.

Thanks again, Rachel!

I received in my "real" mailbox an audiobook of French Lessons by Ellen Sussman, which I won in a giveaway hosted by Simone at Better read than dead.
