Monday Memes

I haven't done Mailbox Monday in a while because my snail mail box hasn't been all that full. I've become a NetGalley reader and and a Kindle owner, so my new books are coming via the web rather than via snail mail. As I mentioned in this post about NetGalley, I like not feeling the least bit obligated to finish or review a galley, and I love the variety available. Here is what I got this week:
A Wife for a Westmoreland (Harlequin Desire)People of the Book (Extreme Devotion)Already HomePlum Gorgeous: Recipes and Memories from the OrchardCucina Povera: Tuscan Peasant CookingHarvest MoonA Time to Heal - Quilts of Lancaster County Series #2The Welcome Home Garden Club: A Twilight, Texas Novel   I've already read and reviewed Harvest Moon and I've flipped through the cookbooks.  Anything there catch your eye?

I also subscribe to a blog that alerts me to Kindle freebies (just in case I don't have enough to read).  This week I grabbed three of them:A Child al Confino: The True Story of a Jewish Boy and His Mother in Mussolini's ItalySunriseGoodness Gracious Green

I have't completely given up on snail mail.  These came this week, for review:
The Bridge of Peace (Ada's House, Book 2)Lady in the Mist: A Novel (The Midwives)Unplanned: The Dramatic True Story of a Former Planned Parenthood Leader's Eye-Opening Journey across the Life Line

Check out Mailbox Monday, hosted this month by Rose City Reader to see what other book bloggers got this week.

So, with that haul, how do I answer the question:  It's Monday, What Are You Reading?

Well, this week I have posted these reviews:

I loved this memoir by a young woman who literally crossed the street.  After witnessing an ultra-sound guided abortion, this director of a Planned Parenthood center crossed the street both literally and figuratively, to the pro-life center nearby.  Great read about how people can change.  My review.

Medical Error (Prescription for Trouble Series #2) Medical thriller combining a medical mystery and identity theft.  My review.
Fatal Judgment (Guardians of Justice, Book 1) Christian romantic suspense.  Not really believable, but a fun read.  My review.
Softly and Tenderly (A Songbird Novel) A woman, her mother and her mother-in-law.  All in pain.  All seeking love.  My Review.

Harvest Moon Another Virgin River romance; one of the better in the series. My review

  12. I'm still in the stone age here and haven't made the leap to e-reader. The cookbooks may be enough to drive me there sooner rather than later.

  13. That plum book looks like fun. Here's my Mailbox! ~ Wendi

  14. You have such a good mixed selection of books I am quite envious. Enjoy the reading.
