~Mailbox Monday/In My Mailbox~ Nov 15

Marcia at The Printed Page created and Hosted this on Mondays. As of Aug Mailbox Mondays are hosted by other blogs for the duration of a month each. Drop by Marcia’s MMBT Page for the hosting schedule or to add your blog to the waiting list for hosting. November’s host is Julie at Knitting and Sundries Check out the current host for more info and to read what other participants are saying plus leave your own links for the current week. While you’re at it also drop by The Story Siren for a similar meme, In My Mailbox which is also a Monday Feature.

Reviews will go up as I get to the books. In the meantime click bookcovers or titles to read more. Don’t forget to check out author sites too. Inspy Shortlist books will be read but no reviews or comments made until after the winning titles are announced publicly around the middle of December to maintain the integrity of the awards organization team and judges. I will list those five titles at the end of this post.

It has been over a month since I last posted and I will try to include as many titles here as I can but could be missing some since other than the last couple of weeks there are several books I’ve acquired in that time period.
