Readers' Favorite

In my June Mailbox

This is a weekly meme hosted by The Story Siren to share the books we have received. I only participate once a month. Check out The Story Siren's blog to see what other people have received in the mail.

Thanks to winning several giveaways during Armchair BEA, I have been receiving goodies in my mailbox all month. Possibly my favorite prize I won during Armchair BEA was the Alice in Wonderland tea party kit.

In addition to the tea party kit, I also won a ARC of Boyfriend from Hell by E. van Lowe and a grab bag of 5 adult fiction novels (those haven't arrived, yet). I attended an author reading/book signing and purchased the book Silver Sparrow by Tayari Jones. Also, a couple of authors sent me paperback copies of their novels to review: Love Child by A. M. Torres and The Evolution of Charlie Darwin by Beth Duman. 

Water for Elephants: A NovelThe Peach Keeper: A NovelMy number finally came up at the digital download library for a couple of audio books I had been on the waiting for list for, including Water for Elephants by Sara Gruen and The Peach Keeper by Sarah Addison Allen.

The list of ebooks is gradually increasing between the free books I find at the blog Nook Deals, request from, and received for review from authors. I'm slowly making my way through the ones I received this month, which included...
The Gift of Joy - Young Adult VersionThe Gift of Joy by Valerie Maarten
Journey to the Well: A NovelJourney to the Well by Diana Wallis Taylor
Stuck in the Middle (Sister-to-Sister, Book 1)Stuck in the Middle by Virginia Smith
Invisible (Ivy Malone Mystery Series #1)Invisible by Lorena McCourtney
Dating Mr. DecemberDating Mr. December by Phillipa Ashley
This Fine Life: A NovelThis Fine Life by Eva Marie Everson 
The UndertakerThe Undertaker by William F. Brown
We, Robots, a novella of the SingularityWe, Robots by Sue Lange

Looks like I have a lot of reading ahead of me. Good thing I'm on vacation this week. I hope to whittle the pile down, but it will probably keep growing as I see more books I want to read.
I'll be sending out my monthly newsletter later this week, so make sure you're signed up for it.
