Mailbox Monday!

Mailbox Monday was created by Marcia.  This meme is currently on tour and this month it is making it's home with Caitlin @ Chaotic Compendiums.

Another big week!  I seem to be getting a lot of wishes granted on Paperbackswap as of late.  Also I did a bit of splurging this week at a local UBS called Booked for the Season because the location in my hometown may have to close if they don't raise $2,000 by April 1st.  I usually go to a different location but had to do my part to help this one out because I hate to see any locally owned bookstore close down.  Also got a few more books for my Kindle because I saw some awesome deals I couldn't pass up.

From Paperbackswap:
  • The Belly Dancer by DeAnna Cameron
  • 1356 by Bernard Cornwell
  • Lady of Ashes by Christine Trent
  • Terra Incognita by Ruth Downie
  • The Twelve Tribes of Hattie by Ayana Mathis

For Review:
  • Cascade by Maryanne O'Hara (from Publisher)
  • The Paris Architect by Charles Belfoure (from NetGalley)
  • The Queen's Rivals by Brandy Purdy (for upcoming tour)

From Booked the Season:
  • A Moorland Hanging by Michael Jecks
  • The Traitor of St. Giles by Michael Jecks
  • The Clerk's Tale by Margaret Frazer
  • Susannah Morrow by Megan Chance
  • Lady of the Light by Donna Gillespie
  • The Devil Amongst the Lawyers by Sharyn McCrumb
  • Kristin Lavransdatter I: the Wreath by Sigrid Undset
  • Robert the Bruce: King of Scots by Ronald McNair Scott


For my Kindle:
  • The Poisoned Pilgrim by Oliver Potzsch (pre-order)
  • The Beggar King by Oliver Potzsch
  • The Bloodletter's Daughter by Linda Lafferty
  • The Complete Wizard of Oz Collection by L. Frank Baum
  • The Dark Monk by Oliver Potzsch

That's all for me.  Have a good week everyone!


  1. Very nice! I hope you like The Twelve Tribes of Hattie, I found it very emotional.

  2. Nice haul. I look forward to your thoughts on Lady of Ashes - fascinating subject + historical fiction + female protagonist = awesome (or so I have been told).

  3. That is a bunch of great looking books. I hope your Booked For The Season makes their goal. We have the same store that does great!

  4. sounds like good treats.
    I have to say though that I was a bit disappointed by 1356, I thought the other books by Cornwell I read were better. here is my review:
    I also received cascade for review

  5. What a fabulous haul of such mixed genres. Enjoy them all. Looking forward to your reviews/thoughts on them all.

  6. I've heard great things about Cascade. Happy reading!

  7. I think the Bellydancer looks good. They don't have it at my library, so I have to start looking around for it. Great books.
