Mailbox Monday

Happy Monday! I hope you all had a nice weekend. It was nice here. The weather was beautiful and me and Devin went on a nice outing on Friday, not exactly the weekend. But I guess in the summertime, everyday is the weekend!

I did get some really great books last week, in my mailbox, my inbox and the bookstore!

The first one I purchased at the bookstore, Deeper by Megan Hart.

I received two ARC's for review, Wild Blue Under by Judi Fennell and My Unfair Lady by Kathryne Kennedy,
thanks to Danielle at Source Books!

Over at Anna's blog, I won a copy of Knight of Desire by Margaret Mallory. This one looks really good!

I won an e-book by Keta Diablo, Dust and Moonlight, and I purchased Lover Enslaved by Jodi Redford and At Earth's Edge by Christine MacKay.

What about you, did you get anything new this past week?

Oh those are some good looking books, I am so tempted by Knight of Desire.
Happy reading Amy :D

*still loving her own mailbox*

Leontine said...

So not jealous but The Unfair Lady by Kathryne Kenendy, is that her fourth novel in her Relic of Merlin series? Drool. Great MM Amy :D

Amy C said...

You know, this may sound kinda silly, but I am almost jealous when I hear people are reading the BJT for the first time. I can reread the books, but it's not quite the same as experiencing it for the first time. I just love those books. So many wonderful characters, and a cool as heck world!
You enjoy those books, Blodeuedd!

Mandi said...

I have Megan Hart on my wishlist..can't wait to try her.

I received My Unfair Lady too:) I'm interested to see how the Keta Diablo book is.

Amy C said...

Hey Leontine, When I first seen My Unfair Lady advertised for release in December, I assumed it was her fourth book, but it's not! I accepted the offer for the arc thinking I was getting the next installment, but it's a whole new book! It's just historical too. The heroine is an American who goes to London. It looks pretty good though. I really love her Relics of Merlin series so I'm sure this one will be good too!

Eva S said...

Hi Amy,
you got some great books last week!! Some of them I'll be adding to my wish list...
I got Hot in Here by Sophie Renwick and bought Surviving Demon Island by Jaci Burton, Lea has talked so much about her books and I'll give them a try.

Still waiting for my copy of Knight of Desire...

Have a great week!
Hugs, Eva

Amy C said...

Hi Mandi, Have you read any Megan Hart? I've Stranger and a few of her older books. I loved Stranger! Very emotional for me. I have Broken and Dirty and now Deeper! I just need to get reading them!
I haven't read anything by Keta Diablo but Dust and Moonlight does sound good! I have it on the ereader, maybe I'll start it soon. It's not very long.

Mandi said...

No, haven't read Megan Hart yet. I have her on my wish list at PBS..I think I am up soon:) Have read great things about her books.

Amy C said...

Hi Eva! Hugs to you too :).
I hope you like Jaci Burton. I've only read one of her books, the first one with her motorcycle guys, the name is eluding me at the moment :). Ohh, reviews for Hot in Here sounds like it's a steamy one!

Amy C said...

Mandi, I only have read one book really of Megan's to base my opinion as to her books being extremely emotional, but what others say about Broken and Dirty, they sound even more provoking than Stranger. I need to add one of them to my August reading :)! I hope you get one soon from PBS! Did you wish for all of them that are available? Or is there a particular one you are looking to read first?

Kaye said...

Love that Dust and Moonlight cover! You certainly got an intriguing mailbox this week. Have a great week and happy reading with all your new books. My Mailbox is here

Mary G said...

Hi Amy
I got:
When Alex Was Bad-Jo Davis
Dangerous Passions- Lisa Marie Rice
Stolen Heat- Elisabeth Naughton
Handyman-Claire Thompson
Brokem Wing- Judith James
Only one hysterical there.

Jodi Redford said...

Hi Amy! Thanks for picking up Lover Enslaved. I really hope you like it. :) I bought a few books last week too. Not Quite A Husband by Sherry Thomas (I loved her first two books so I'm really looking forward to this one). Also a couple of my fellow Samhain release day authors. Lol, okay all of them. I have zero willpower!

Heather D said...

Good Morning Amy,

You got some really great books too!! A friend of mine from Shelfari is loaning me Deeper (it has been on my wish list since it came out). I have only read one of KK Relics of Merlin series, but I loved it. I know you said My Unfair Lady was not part of that series, but I am sure it will be awesome. I have read Dust and Moonlight. I love Keta's books and she is such a warm and sweet lady! If you have not read Land of Falling Stars yet I definitely HIGHLY recommend it. Not only does it have a beautiful cover but it is a book that contains characters that stick with you for days after you are done reading!

Great haul.

Happy Reading!

Kelly said...

Nice pile of books this week! Happy reading! My list is here.

Renee said...

Great haul, Amy!

I LOVED Deeper, and I think you'll love it, too.

I'd only read Tempted by MH, and it was just an ok book for me. After that, I just didn't feel compelled to try her other books. But, CJ sent me a really persuasive email, saying that Deeper was worth trying. I was sure glad I took her advice! The characters stayed with me for days.

Lover Enslaved looks interesting!

I haven't been book shopping this week (though I will probably go tomorrow) but I got a couple of audiobooks from Audible: Fragile Eternity by Melissa Marr and Santa Olivia by Jacqueline Carey.

Christine said...

I've had Deeper on my amazon shopping list for a month already and still haven't clicked the check out button. I don't know what the heck I'm waiting for since I'm such a huge fan of Megan Hart!

I also won Knight of Desire from Anna's blog and I actually just finished reading it yesterday. I LOVED it! It was my first medieval romance and let me tell you, it won't be my last!

Lea said...

Great Haul Amy!!!

I won Knight of Desire too and it's great to hear Christine loved it so much. I'll look forward to the read!!

You got some other great ones there - I hear "Deeper" is amazing!!

You enjoy Amy, Happy Monday to you too.


Amy C said...

I agree, Mary! That Dust and Moonlight cover is pretty neat the way everything is collaged together.

Oh Mary, you make me laugh! Hystericals! I wonder what that When Alex was bad is? I like Jo Davis's firefighters. I should look into that one!

Hey Jodi! You are so welcome. Lover Enslaved sounds great! I haven't read any Sherry Thomas books. I don't gravitate toward the victorian, or regency romances, but I hear she's really good! Ha! i don't think there are many of us book junkies that have good will power! :P

Hey Heather, thank you for your feedback about keta Diablo's book! I'd like to read it soon. I'll look into Land of Falling Stars after I read this one first!

Amy C said...

Hi Kelly! Thanks for stopping b :)

Renee! I am really looking forward to Deeper. You know, Tempted is the one book of hers I have absolutley no desire to read. The whole concept of the book does nothing for me and I had Christine give me the run down, and I know I would not like it. I keep telling myslef to read Broken and Dirty and they are still sitting on the shelf now with Deeper! I need to read them!

He Christine!
You read Knight of Desire and loved it! Awesome! it does look so good and I do love a good Medieval. It's my first choice for a historical!

Amy C said...

Hey Lea!
Alot of us seemed to have won Knight of Desire! I think I'll keep it out so I don't forget about it. Way too many books :)!

Kelly Moran said...
