Mailbox Monday is a weekly event where we share our latest book arrivals. Link up and find new mailboxes to stalk at the Mailbox Monday blog! This week can be described in one word: Hot! It was in the 90s-100 degrees all week. Yesterday I spent the day at the LA Vegan Beer & Food Festival, which was big fun. But drinking and eating in the hot sun left me in no mood to blog so I’ve been a little quiet here this weekend. How was your week?
Here’s my week in books:
Everything Leads to You by Nina LaCour – This book gets 5 stars from me. All the stars! (Review later this week.) This book is about a young Hollywood set designer who falls for an up and coming actress with a mysterious past.
Since You’ve Been Gone by Morgan Matson -My next read, maybe? This is about a girl whose best friend leaves her a to-do list of thirteen unusual tasks to complete one summer.
Far From You by Tess Sharpe -This is a mystery that alternates between the past and present as you piece together a murder.
Audiobooks for Review:
Sweet Filthy Boy by Christina Lauren, read by Shayna Thibodeaux – Such a great kickoff to a new contemporary romance series! It’s about a college graduate who meets a French guy in Vegas who invites her to spend the summer in Paris with him.
Only Everything by Kieran Scott, read by Rebekkah Ross – Greek mythology meets modern high school setting when Eros/Cupid is expelled from Olympus and has to play matchmaker for three couples without using magic.

E-Books for Review:
Lies We Tell Ourselves by Robin Talley – This debut takes place in Virginia in 1959 and covers race relations and sexuality. Excited about this one!
