In My Mailbox (3) + Read-A-Thon Update

In My Mailbox is a weekly meme started by Kristi at The Story Siren and inspired by Alea from Pop Culture Junkie. Every Sunday bloggers post the books they've acquired over the past week: bought/borrowed/won. For more info please visit The Story Siren's IMM page.

I'm trying to save money and get through the books I own but haven't yet read, so this week brings me just one new book.

It is a review book that I won from

The Gendarme
The Gendarme by Mark T. Mustian, in stores September 2nd.  Review will be posted soon :)

The Bibliophilic Book Blog read-a-thon is going pretty good, but quite slowly.  I had to postpone my reading yesterday evening and this morning because my twin sis left for France this morning!!  And last night was dedicated to hanging out with her. 
I got through House Made of Dawn by N. Scott Momaday and have been reading Upton Sinclair's The Jungle.  I was a bit scared of it before I picked it up,  but it's actually a really good read and I am hearting it.
Final update tomorrow :)


  1. thanks :) I'm really excited to start it!

  2. I hope that you enjoy your book. Happy reading. Check out my mailbox

  3. Mmm...The Gendarme sounds interesting, but not the type of book I usually read. I look forward to your review because if you like it, maybe I'll give it a try.

  4. I'll have the review posted on the release date, Sept 2nd :) I'm super excited to start reading it this week!
