Sunday Shout Out (6)

Recently, I introduced a new feature here at In the Hammock on Sundays. It's called "Sunday Shout Out" and it's a place where I can give a special shout out to those publishers and authors who have sent me books over the week, as well as those bloggers who have hosted contests that I've won! I'll also be giving shout outs to any other cool books, blogs or bookish news that I've spotted during the week.

Check out my first Sunday Shout Out post for even more info, here!

Contest Wins

"Empress of the Seven Hills" by Kate Quinn


won from Peeking Between the Pages

"Memoirs of an Imaginary Friend" by Matthew Dicks

won from St. Martin's

Books for Review
"At Last" by Jill Shalvis

 "The Legend of Mickey Tussler" by Frank Nappi

"Sophomore Campaign: A Mickey Tussler Novel" by Frank Nappi

I really enjoyed the movie based on these books: A Mile in His Shoes

Book News

Tor has posted a free short story prequel to "Of Poseidon" by Anya Banks to read on their website, no downloading or e-reader necessary.  The story is called "Legacy Lost." It's pretty short but it's definitely worth reading if you've already read the novel or if you are trying to decide if you want to buy it or not. Enjoy!

I first saw this story posted at the Radiant Shadows blog.

I have a ton of contests going on right now! 

"Lucky in Love" by Jill Shalvis Ends 6/8

"Tempest Rising" Autographed by Tracy Deebs Ends 6/10

If you would like to do your own Sunday Shout out, please link back to this post, and leave your link in the comments section this weekend so I can check it out, and so that other readers can stop by too!!
