Mailbox Monday for 7/30/12


Mailbox Monday is a weekly meme created by Marcia at Mailbox Monday and is being hosted all this month by Mrs. Q:  Book Addict.


I received a bound galley of Blood Eye by Giles Kristian for an upcoming TLC Book Tour.







The lovely Beth of Beth's Book Reviews sent me a very lovely package.  Inside were some great vintage mystery paperbacks.  She sent along two books by Mary Roberts Rinehart, The Confession & Sight Unseen and The Breaking Point.  She sent along another Rex Stout book, I really need to get reading them, The Sound of Murder.  She also sent along three books by Hazel Holt, Mrs. Malory's Shortest Journey, Mrs. Malory and the Festival Murder, and Mrs. Malory: Detective in Residence.  Inside the box was a really sweet surprise, a jar of maple sugar.  I can't wait to use it on some baked butternut squash.

I really want that dress and hairdo on the cover of The Breaking Point. Just sayin'.

Maple sugar is really awesome on acorn squash, as well. The only way I can get Paul to even go near a squash is to either cover it in some kind of maple/sugar/spice combination or herby parmesan breadcrumbs. Otherwise, it's a no-go. Can't wait until autumn!
