  1. Very nice eclectic mix of books! How the French Invented Love sounds intriguing. I gave Auraria a try but had a hard time getting into it. I'll be interested to hear your thoughts!

  2. You got lots of great looking books! Elders piques my interest. Enjoy!

  3. These books look incredible! I particularly like the looks of "The Lady and Her Monsters!" Putting that on the Goodreads TBR...

  4. I eyed a few of those, and added a few more to my wish list --enjoy

  5. I actually haven't seen any of these, so I look forward to seeing what you think of them.

  6. Wow, what a haul. Happy reading :)

  7. Hi, nice to meet you. I am one of your newest members to your blog and I noticed that we share a love of historical fiction. I will be keeping up with your blog and hope you will join me at mine:

    Hope to see you there. Happy reading.

  8. Interested to see if A Constellation of Vital Phenomena is any good. Love the cover and the blurb has me intrigued.

  9. That looks a good eclectic mix! No books last week for me, though I've enough already for this month, so kind of glad.

  10. I got McEwan's new one, Sweet Tooth!

    I also have Flight Behavior and The Dinner.

  11. The Lady and Her Monsters sounds freaky and fascinating. Two of my favorite things in a book! The others look wonderful as well. You had a very bountiful mailbox this week!

  12. The Dinner sounds intriguing and interesting, it is on my watch list.

  13. First time I've seen the Anthony Marra title, sounds very moving - enjoy them all!

  14. Things I feel compelled to say:
    Flight Behavior: I'm on that tour too. *fist bumps*
    The Dinner: "Don't touch the plate. It's hot."
    Elders: Mormons?
    The Lady and Her Monsters: This one wins for most appealing cover this week. I am highly curious about this now.
    The Love Object: I've been wanting to read Edna O'Brien.
