Monday Memes

Mailbox Monday is hosted this month by MariReads and is where book bloggers gather to share what showed up in their mailboxes this week, whether those mailboxes received email or snail mail.

Snail Mail:  None this week.


NetGalley:  
Only Mine (Fool's Gold)
Her town’s lack of men may make headlines, but it isn’t news to Dakota Hendrix. The beautiful blonde has bigger problems to deal with, such as overseeing the romance reality competition filming in Fool’s Gold. Screening eligible bachelors is a difficult enough task, but Dakota hits an unexpected snag when a sexy stranger comes to town. Finn Anderssen will do anything to keep his twin brothers — the perfect contestants — off the show. Despite Dakota’s better judgment, she finds herself drawn to the mysterious outsider. Like her, Finn knows about heartbreak and how a family can fall apart, so she doesn’t dare to hope for anything more than a fling. After all, even in the Land of Happy Endings, finding true love is never as easy as it looks on TV    A fun romance, will be reviewed in June

Avatar: The Last Airbender - The Lost Adventures
One of America's hottest shows returns! For three years, millions of eager fans tuned in each week to watch Nickelodeon's hit animated series, Avatar: The Last Airbender. Ever since, fans have been hungry for more - and now their wait is finally over! This volume collects the long-out-of-print, fan-favorite comics previously published in Nickelodeon Magazine and with the Airbender DVDs, plus over 70 brand-new comics pages. That's over 26 stories set in Airbender continuity, by a host of top-notch talent, many of whom worked on the original animated series itself. Not my thing at all, but it isn't for me, it is for my teenaged son, who will have to tell me whether it is any good so I can write a review.
I have a backlog from NetGalley which I am trying to clear before requesting more, but so many of them are so tempting...

Amazon freebies (which I may actually read one day)

It Happens Every Spring (The Four Seasons of a Marriage Series #1)Too Close to Home (Women of Justice Series #1)A Vote of Confidence (Sisters of Bethlehem Springs, The)Tailor-Made Bride, A
