Monday Memes

Mailbox Monday is being hosted this month by  She Reads and Reads.  The mailman was good to me this week.  I got:
Montana GloryMontana Glory which is the third in this series of Western-themed romance novels.  It was a fun read and I'll be posting on it, and giving away five copies, on November 1.
Two Tickets to the Christmas Ball: A NovellaTwo Tickets to the Christmas Ball: A Novella is for a First Wildcard tour October 21.  It is a sweet Christian Christmas story though I'm curious about how it will be reviewed.  The Christmas Ball and a few other things are clearly magical, which I know some Christians find offensive.  I thought the Christian elements didn't fit the story.
Costly Grace: A Contemporary View of Bonhoeffer's The Cost of DiscipleshipCostly Grace: A Contemporary View of Bonhoeffer's The Cost of Discipleship is from the folks at B&B Media, and First Wildcard is touring it too, on November 18.
Dismissed with PrejudiceDismissed with Prejudice is a legal drama involving college football.  Should be interesting.
The Perfect Blend (The Tea Shop Series)The Perfect Blend (The Tea Shop Series) is for a First Wildcard tour November 5.  I love the cover.
5 Ingredient Fix: Easy, Elegant, and Irresistible Recipes5 Ingredient Fix: Easy, Elegant, and Irresistible Recipes is from Hachette.  You can read  my review here.

It's Monday, What Are You Reading is hosted by Book Journey.  She asks us what we read or reviewed in the last week and what we plan for this week.
This past week, I read Montana Glory, The 5 Ingredient Fix and Two Tickets to the Christmas Ball; reviews will come later.
I also read
The Home for Broken HeartsThe Home for Broken Hearts and my review will be written right after this post, so you may find it if you look for it.

The Christmas Glass: A NovelThe Christmas Glass: A Novel is a sweet Christmas novel that has been nominated for an Inspy Award.  My review.

    I am kind of interested in the Cookbook you reviewed. Do they have many vegetable recipes. I am not looking to go vegetarian, but just up my vegie intake. We just started getting our vegie from a local farm and I've no idea how to cook some of them.

  9. I love Christmas books. :) Two Tickets... has a gorgeous cover, and The Christmas Glass sounds very good. Have a good week!
