Mailbox Monday (37)

I know you're surprised, but again my mailbox for full of books this week, so yet again, I'm linking up with Mailbox Monday. This link-up travels each month, and for June we're linking up at Dolce Bellezza.
Mailbox Monday
For Review from TLC Books Tours
Together Tea by Marjan Kamali
I'm really excited for this one! It's about an Iranian American woman whose mother is looking for the perfect match for her. The Middle Eastern culture isn't one that I've read a ton about, but again I can't wait to experience it.

From Goodreads
Nearer Home by Joy Castro
I used to win goodreads giveaways ALL THE TIME, to the point where I thought it was normal and everyone else must also be winning once a month. Except about a year after regularly winning, I stopped and hadn't won one since December 2011. At least I hadn't until earlier this week when I won SIX in a single day. I actually thought goodreads was sending out congratulations e-mails in error at first. But turns out it actually happened. Not sure if I'll start winning them regularly again, or if it'll be several years till the next win, but either way I'm happy! As for this book, it's a mystery that take place in New Orleans, and living in Louisiana I always love reading books that take place here.

For Review from Historical Fiction Virtual Book Tours
The Queen's Vow by C.W. Gortner
I've been wanting to read this since before it was even released, and can hardly believe I actually received a copy of it. I so so excited to finally jump into this one!

What did you find in your mailbox this week? And have you ever won a goodreads giveaway?


  1. Nearer Home looks good. Thanks for the recommendation.

  2. Congrats on your Goodreads wins! I used to win their giveaways all the time too, but haven't won anything in ages. Fingers crossed my luck with them will change! I'm a sucker for stories set in New Orleans too. Happy reading!

  3. I enjoyed The Queen's Vow, hope you do too! If you are interested in entering anymore giveaways, I have a big one on my blog at the moment!

  4. Together Tea is a book I think I'd enjoy reading. Iranian American women writers are coming into their own.

  5. You are a lucky duck! enjoy the books.

  6. It looks like you're in for some good reading! Together Tea sounds exceptional to me.

  7. I love reading historical fiction, and books about other cultures. They expand my understanding so much!

  8. The Queen's Vow caught my eye.

  9. The Queen's Vow looks quite good.

    ENJOY all your books.
