In My Mailbox (73)

In My Mailbox is a weekly meme hosted by The Story Siren to share what books you received for review, purchased, or checked out from the library during the past week.




For review:




The Springsweet by Saundra Mitchell

I received this ARC through the Amazon Vine program. I really liked The Vespertine so I have high hopes for this companion novel about Zora.





I first came across this book through Shelf Awareness and when I saw it was available through NetGalley I requested it. 




Purchased:




Spying in High Heels by Gemma Halliday


I've already finished this first book in the High Heels mystery series and while it has some flaws, it was still a fun book so when I saw that the first 5 books were available in a bundle for $2.99 for Kindle, I went ahead and bought it.




Killer in High Heels by Gemma Halliday




Undercover in High Heels by Gemma Halliday



Alibi in High Heels by Gemma Halliday



Mayhem in High Heels by Gemma Halliday



From the library:






The sample I requested for my Kindle was so funny that I decided I had to give this book a try. Admittedly I've never seen The Office but I think I will enjoy the book anyway.




The Bungalow by Sarah Jio

I thought The Violets of March was excellent so I knew I wanted to read The Bungalow. It sounds like it offers both mystery and romance, two of my favorite things in books.


The House at Riverton by Kate Morton

I have wanted to read this book for years but never got around to it. Now with my love for Downton Abbey, I thought it was time to pick up The House at Riverton. I am also hoping one of my book discussion groups will pick it for our March book.


The Wilder Life by Wendy McClure

I grew up as a big fan of the Little House on the Prairie books and the Michael Landon TV series. When I heard about this book, I thought it sounded like something I'd really appreciate.


Have you read any of these books?
Which ones sound interesting to you?

  1. You did get a nice bunch of books this week. The high heels series looks interesting. If my TBR and Review mountain were just a little smaller I would be looking for that Saundra Marshall book too. I also liked The Vespertine. Thanks for visiting my IMM.

  2. I hope you enjoy the Kaling book-I know I did but I'm also a long-time fan of The Office.

    Very interested in your opinion of A Lady Cyclist's Guide to Kashgar as I thought it looked intriguing but didn't request because I already have so many books to read.

  13. I totally want a copy of "The Wilder Life." I'm a big Little House fan, and have an interest in that period of history (especially the more domestic aspects of life at the time), and I'd love to read that one! Thanks for letting me know about it.
