Mailbox Monday (36)

I have an awesome mailbox to share this week! It's due to the fact I'm scheduled for so many reviews over the summer, I think almost every week for two months straight. Lucky for me, they're books I'm really exciting about, and happy to share at Dolce Bellezza, our Mailbox Monday host for the month of June.
Mailbox Monday
For Review from TLC Book Tours
The Registry by Shannon Stoker
I'm actually about halfway through this one already. It's a new adult dystopain that feels like a bit of a mix between Delirium and Matched. So far, I'm enjoying my time with it.

The Virgin Cure by Ami McKay
I've read so many amazing reviews of this (as well as the author's The Birth House), so I have high hopes of this historical fiction that takes place in Manhattan in the late 1800s. Hopefully it lives up to my expectations.

Godiva by Nicole Galland
I've read one of this author's before (I, Iago, which I actually shared in my first Mailbox Monday post ever), so I know I'm in for an exciting time. This is another historical fiction taking place in England in the 11th century.

For Review for Virtual Author Book Tours
Tilda Pinkerton's Magical Hats by Angela Shelton
I read a Tilda book last year and that it was a lot fun, which is what I was so excited to see there was another one on tour. The last one was actually more of a middle grade, while this is more of a children's book. Thumbing through it, it looks awesome. My favorite is how there's actual coloring sheets every few pages. I'm thinking I may have to color a few of them myself! Plus the author included a sticker, postcard, and what looks like a mini moo card.

From Paperback Swap
Food Politics by Marion Nestle
This is another book off my mom's wish list. It looks really dense and packed with information, but hopefully I'll get through it one of these days.

What did you find in your mailbox this week? And if you schedule reviews on your blog, what's the most you commit to in a given period? I try to aim for no more than once a week, but sometimes I think every other week would be the better way to do it.


  1. I got The Virgin Cure too and should be getting Godiva shortly. Here's hoping we both love them! Enjoy your reading this week.

  2. I just put in an amazon order for some books - I set a goal to read 9 books this summer and am already through 1.5 of them so I figured I better get on ordering more!

  3. Food Politics sounds like it would be a book I'd like to read.
    I try to schedule at least one review per week and sometimes two. Have a good week!

  4. I love your enthusiasm for all the reviews you have coming up. When my schedule is that full I start to panic! :)

    1. Well, I'm about 2 weeks ahead of my scheduled reviews now. But I'm sure once I start getting behind I won't be nearly as calm!

  5. I've heard lots of good things about The Virgin Cure too. I read The Fool's Tale by Nicole Galland and really liked it so I'm looking forward to Godiva too. Hope you enjoy all of your new books!

  6. Sounds like you will be busy this summer. Enjoy!

  7. Ooh, you got Godiva! I bet that's really good! Enjoy your new books!

  8. I have read a lot of great reviews for The Virgin Cure too. I am looking forward to seeing what you think.
