Mailbox Monday, Sept 19

Since I've seriously scaled back on my reviews (and then, frankly, stopped doing pretty much any not associated with a tour, le sigh!), I've not got gotten as many unsolicited copies any more. It bums me out from a blogger perspective, in that it's one big indication that I'm not as active here as I should be, but on the other hand, I'm grateful I don't have to deal with the clutter of books I probably won't read.

I'm still a bit free with my requests for e-book ARCs, however, and I have been chewing through a handful of those this year. Here are some recent arrivals on this Mailbox Monday. What have you gotten? Any of these appeal to you?

Print Copies

Ebook Copies

Kate Howard, The Ornatrix
Sara Flannery Murphy, The Possessions
Laurie Notaro, Crossing the Horizon

Aprilynne Pike, Glitter
Cherie Priest, The Family Plot


  1. I did just the opposite - I'm only doing a few blog tours and the rest I read on my own schedule. It got to be too much pressure to read/post by a certain date. If I get an unsolicited book I'll read it if it interests me or I'll spotlight and run a giveaway or I'll donate it to the little free library in my neighborhood (if it's a finished copy). I guess what I'm saying is it's nice we can set our own limits and then enjoy reading! Nice to land on your blog today :)

  2. Nice mailbox. Gorgeous covers.

    I haven't been doing too many tours. I am excited about unsolicited books unless it is one that I really won't read. I have been pretty lucky, though. Most of my unsolicited books are books that I have enjoyed.

    Have a wonderful week.

    My Mailbox Monday

  3. I like the list you do have here. They look like good reads. I hope that you find more time for blogging. I miss seeing those posts in my email.

  4. Nice mailbox. I miss your reviews though!

  5. Great mailbox! I'm really intrigued by Glitter. Happy reading!

  6. Yep, the lesser number has a silver lining. I've stopped using Netgalley so no more books from there, no tours either, but I've had a few print copies I'm excited about, particularly the latest Peirene.
