Mailbox Monday (50)

I missed out on Mailbox Monday last week, but I'm back today to link up at Book Dragon's Lair.
Mailbox Monday
For Review from France Book Tours
Paris was the Place by Susan Conley
I actually read this author's memoir almost two years ago, and now am really excited to see how her fiction reads differently. And just from the cover, I'm thinking I'm going to love this one!

For Review from Virtual Author Book Tours
Mission One of Augie the Alien by Leah and Megan Summers
This is a middle grade book about an alien who tries to fit in as a normal 4th grader. It seems like the type of book I would have love as a kid, and I'm excited for a bit of nostalgia. Plus as you can see, the authors sent me some fun swag with the book.

For Review from Historical Fiction Book Tours
Anvil of God J. Boyce Gleason
This one already look intimidating, but I guess we'll see how it reads. It's a historical fiction that takes place in France (or what became France) in 741.

What did you find in your mailbox this week?


  1. Auggie does look adorable! And I love the cover of Paris was the Place. Happy reading :)

  2. Hi Shoshanah,

    I really do have to add 'Paris Was The Place' to my list, there's no 'being good' about it!

    The synopsis is so alluring and intriguing and the author so forthright and interesting.

    Quite a topical subject matter for the storyline as well, which all helps to make this a 'must read'.

    Thanks for sharing and have a good week.


  3. Paris was The Place looks terrific. Great pile of books.

  4. I've been noticing Paris Was the Place...and wanting to know more. Enjoy your reads, and thanks for visiting my blog.

  5. I think I'd love Augie!

    Yeah, because Between Shades of Gray sounds so much like 50 Shades of Gray! muttering....stupid people.

  6. I agree with you that Paris is the Place looks good. Thanks for stopping by my STS!
