Mailbox Monday, a Bit of Early Birthday Loot, and Other Stuff

Mailbox Monday is hosted by Marcia at The Printed Page.

Into the Path of Gods

While out of town for the Thanksgiving holiday, one book arrived — Into the Path of Gods by Kathleen Cunningham Guler. It’s book one in the Macsen’s Treasure series and takes place in 5th Century Britain and looks quite interesting. I won this through the Member Giveaway on Librarything.

The Kingmaking

Pendragon's Banner

Wolf Hall

 

I also got a bit of early birthday loot, 3 books! The Kingmaking by Helen Hollick, Pendragon’s Banner by Helen Hollick, and Wolf Hall by Hilary Mantel.

 

 

 

 

My husband also snagged a few books off his parent’s shelf which he thought I’d like – Star Trek: The Great Adventures by James Blish. They are so ’70s and I can’t wait to read them. Who doesn’t love a tale of intergalactic intrigue, and yes, it actually says that on the cover.

Mailbox Monday and Yes, I Know It’s Tuesday

Mailbox Monday is hosted by Marcia at The Printed Page.

I’m so excited! This is the first time that I get to participate in Mailbox Monday. I get a few books here and there but not a lot on a regular basis. While I was away, I got 2! Okay, so that’s really not a lot but I also don’t ask for many either since I like to read what I want.

Here’s what I got:

Powers

Powers by John B. Olson. This a LibraryThing Early Reviewers copy and the first one I received since I started participating earlier this year. It takes place in the swamps of Louisiana and looks deliciously suspenseful.

The Taker and the Keeper

The Taker and the Keeper by Wim Coleman and Pat Perin. It’s a fantasy novel for young adults but it features King Arthur and since I can’t ever get enough of Arthur, I thought I’d try it out.
