Mailbox Monday (75)

I hope everyone had a great weekend!  I participated in Dewey's 24 Hour Read-a-Thon on Saturday and it was great!  I've been in a terrible reading funk lately but I managed to get a lot of reading in and I think I busted out of my funk.  

The last week was pretty quiet; we didn't look at any houses so it was nice to just be in our normal day to day routine.  The hubs and I had a super fun date night with friends on Friday but we definitely paid for it on Saturday when Julia came home tired and grumpy from my mother-in-laws.  Oh well, I guess that's just life with a 3 year old!

Finished Reading:

The Shadow Land by Elizabeth Kostova
Bobbins and Boots by Shanna Hatfield
Under the Approaching Dark by Anna Belfrage

Currently Reading:

Anne Boleyn: A King's Obsession by Alison Weir

I totally blew my book buying ban again this week so here I am with another Mailbox Monday post.  I got an email from Barnes and Noble by mistake indicating that I still had some unused ebook credits so, of course, I started shopping for some new booksI already had several picked out when I got another email notifying me of the error but I just decided to buy them anyway.

Purchased (for nook and kindle):

Blackberry Summer by RaeAnne Thayne
I Shall Be Near to You by Erin Lindsay McCabe
Unprocessed by Megan Kimble
Crazy Horse and Custer by Stephen E. Ambrose
A Night Divided by Jennifer A. Neilsen  

From the Library (ebook):

Empire of Storms by Sarah J. Maas

What books did you get this week?


  1. Glad to hear you got out of your reading funk. I'll be curious about your thoughts on Under the Approaching Dark by Anna Belfrage. Enjoy your new books!

  2. I just realized I have Blackberry Summer on my kindle but haven't read it. Think I'll make a point of reading it this summer. I hope you enjoy your new books!

  3. It looks like you've got some good reading ahead of you.

  4. I heard that a lot of people got that BN email and then had it retracted...what a bummer! Hope you enjoy your new reads!

  5. I have never fully participated in one of the Read-a-Thons. I usually get a little bit into it and then get distracted...or tired.

    Enjoy your week, and thanks for sharing. Great that you had a date night. Those are very important.

    Thanks for visiting my blog.

  6. Blackberry Summer looks good to me.

    ENJOY your week, and Happy Reading!!

  7. Glad your weekend read-a-thon helped you get past the reading funk.
    I Shall be Near to You sounds good. I have read two stories over the past few years about women pretending to be men and fighting in the Civil War.
    A Night Divided sounds good too.
    Hope you have a good week. Happy Reading!
