Monday Memes

This month, Mailbox Monday is hosted by At Home With Books.  Bloggers list  books that arrived in either snail mail or email.  Since my last Monday posting I have downloaded a lot from Amazon and a few from NetGalley (covers are clickable Amazon links).


Amazon:  Far more than I care to list here.  I regularly read Ereader News Today which lists Kindle books which are free for a limited time.  As such, I "buy" first, review later.  This has been a cookbook week.  However, here are some I've actually read:
 A self-published romance. Good basic concept, likable characters, needs work in the realism department.
 Another self-published romance.  See my review.
 Self-published romance; better written than many.  On the explicit side.
 This was on sale for $.99 and since I'd read others in the series I grabbed it.  It is on the long side and seems (I'm about halfway through) to have some supernatural/divine elements.
 Another $.99 book.  I haven't read it yet,but looking at the authors, I'd guess a sweet Christmas romance.
 My final $.99 purchase.  You can guess the plot by looking at the cover.

It's Monday What Are You Reading is hosted by Sheila over at Book Journey.  She asks what we read last week, what we reviewed last week and what we plan to read this week.  Since my last Monday post, I've posted about these books:

  1. Hi RAnn,

    What a fantastic haul of books for just one week and it's great to see that you enjoy such an eclectic mix of authors and genres.

    My mother-in-law and I have a shared kindle account and I couldn't understand why she was ordering books every single day, I couldn't see that she was reading that quickly.

    All was explained though, when she told me about the kindle daily newsletter, which you referred to in your post. Like yourself, she is busy stock piling titles for the future, although even she admits that she will probably never get around to reading them all!!

    Enjoy your reading week.


  2. That is a lot of reading for the week! enjoy them all.

  3. Happy New Year! My post reflects two weeks of reading. Please come see what I'm reading now.

    Strawberry Girl is on my TBR.

  4. Oh my gosh, I loved Strawberry Girl when I was young! I hope it's stood the test of time.

  5. It seems like it would be a smart thing for publishers to find these old children's books and republish them in new editions. Inexpensive, too, I'd think.

    Here is my It's Monday! What Are You Reading? I hope you will stop by!

  6. Fantastic week in books. I wish I had seen the Wiggs book for .99. I would have grabbed it too. I love her series. Have a wonderful week and happy reading. My MM is here

  7. The upside (and of Kindle...the ease of downloading, followed by a stockpile of titles just waiting. Like a treat.

    Thanks for sharing. I'm going to check out some of your links.

    And I'm glad you could visit my blog.

  8. You can't go wrong with Linda Lael Miller! :)

    Have a great week!

  9. I have become addicted to my kindle and the free books on Amazon too. I will never run out of reading material. lol

    Have an awesome week!

    A great week of reading ahead of you.

  11. I don't think I ever read Strawberry Girl. I wonder how I managed to miss it growing up? I will have to look it up as it seems like it would be a wonderful read.

  12. Looks like you got a lot of fun books!

  13. You received so many new books last week. I see several I wouldn't mind reading:)


  14. Hope you have a wonderful week of reading!
