Mailbox Monday - April 29th

Mailbox Monday is a meme started by Marcia of To Be Continued. Mailbox Monday is the gathering place for readers to share the books that came in their mailbox during the last week. It now has a permanent home at the Mailbox Monday blog. Head over and check out other books received during the last week. 

This week I didn't receive any books for review. I didn't win any books and I didn't buy any books. (I've been very restrained with my ARC requests). 
But the lack of new additions to my 'to be read' pile gives me a good chance to catch up on some of my outstanding Netgalley reads. I've recently seen some excellent books on Netgalley that I would love to request but I feel I need to get my outstanding books read first.

During the last week I've read 
A Life of Her Own by Fiona McCallum
A story about a 30 year old woman who has low self esteem, due to her harsh upbringing, working out what she wants from life.

The Border by Steve Schafer
Follows four teenagers who escape from Mexico with a band of Narcos after them and a bounty on their heads.

I enjoyed a lovely lunch out with my daughters on Saturday and had the grandchildren over for Sunday night dinner.
Our pre-lunch coffees. 

What Books did your postman deliver this week?

  4. Both of these books sound fabulous. I hope you enjoy them. I ordered a book on small talk that I plan to review.

  5. I know how you feel about wanting to read some NetGalley titles before asking for more.
    A Life of Her Own has a beautiful cover. Hope you are enjoying your TBR books. Happy Reading!

  6. I loved the cover of The Border and also those coffees....🙈
