Mailbox Monday, Feb 6

Seen both at Mailbox Monday -- hosted in February at Metro Reader -- and The Story Siren, my Mailbox Monday/In My Mailbox. What an insane week! And by insane, I mean, amazing. This might win for the most arrivals in a week since I've started blogging. Honestly, my jaw is on the ground -- I'm blown away and super excited to read all these. What did you get this week? Read any of these?

  1. What a fantastic load of books! I can't wait to read No One is Here Except All of Us, Blue Asylum, and The Sister Queens. I just finished Enchantments yesterday and am still thinking what my final verdict will be on that one. Enjoy all of those books!

    1. I'm excited for all of these books, but the hist fics have me especially keen. I haven't read any Katherine Harrison before but I understand her fiction isn't like her nonfic so...I'm optimistic.

    1. Cassie -- I'm on review tours for many of these books but about half came unsolicited -- I think after a year I've finally made it on to some publisher ARC lists -- it's mind-boggling. If I could pay my landlord in ARCs, I'd be set for life...

    2. I am so jealous. I don't even know how to begin to do that. BAH! I need to become more professional like you :) GO YOU!
