Mailbox Monday, July 8

Mailbox Monday is hosted in July at Tasha @ Book Obsessed and itt feels like forever since I've done a Mailbox Monday post! (It's just been a month.)

Since that time, I've gotten a boatload of awesome new arrivals, some of which I've already read and reviewed (!) so I'm not including them in this roundup.

To learn more about a book, click on the cover. The GoodReads page for it will open up in a new tab/window.

What did you get this month?

Purchased/Gifted/Swapped

The Historical Novel Society conference in June was a source of many new books, happily!



  We got a swag bag!



I DNF'd this in 2011 but after seeing Stella Duffy speak at the HNS conference, I was so enamored of her, I raced out to buy this and try again. 



Bought this one at the HNS conference after seeing the author, Kamran Pasha, speak on a panel about depicting religion in historical novels. I had insta!fangirl crush on him, and even though my wife wants to murder me for purchasing books, I had to.



After gushing to Kate Quinn, she later asked me if I'd take this ARC of her forthcoming book as a 'favor' to her, so she wouldn't have to lug it home. My reply is obvious.



I had posted a Q&A with Sharman Ramsey ahead of the conference, so when I saw her at the author signing, I said 'hi' and introduced myself. In return, she gifted me with this first in her series. Very excited!

  1. Holy cats, what a giant stack of new books to read. Wheee! :D I'm curious about a bunch of those, especially Mrs. Poe.

    Happy reading!

  3. WOW! You always have a great mailbox, but I think this might your best one yet! I've read a couple of the books you have listed (Bride of New France, which I really liked, and Letters From Skye, which I loved). I can't wait to read your reviews for each and every one of them.

    Enjoy!

  6. I can always count on you, Audra, to add at least 3-4 books to my WishList :) I'm adding Mrs. Poe, The Midwife's Revolt, Bride of New France and Godiva!! Several of the others also interested me but I'll wait for your always thorough reviews before I add them to my list :)

  7. Wow what a week! Nicole Galland wrote me a guest post and she really did her research for Godiva so that should be a good one. I'm excited about Mrs. Poe too.

  13. Woah, what a haul. So many good ones in there. I'll be reviewing Letters From Skye soon. There are so many in here, but I think I'm kicking myself about saying no to the Godiva book and I really wish I had been pitched Mrs. Poe.
