Mailbox Monday, August 19

It's been about a month since my last Mailbox Monday, and I've gotten some uh-mah-zing arrivals. 

I'm pathetic sick today so I've mostly had the books swimming around me on the bed because, hello, better than chicken soup for perking me up, I say!

Mailbox Monday is hosted in August by Kathy of Bermudaonion. To learn about any book, click the cover -- it'll open to the GoodReads page in a new tab/window.

What did you get this week (or, this month!)? Read any of these?

For Review


Thanks to Enchanted by Josephine!


  1. Wow! I'm very curious about The Novel Cure and Under the Wide and Starry Sky. Enjoy your new books!

  2. I'm reading "A Burnable Book" now. SO good! I can't wait to hear your thoughts on it.

    I'm also really excited about "Castles, Customs and Kings." What a great haul of books!

  3. The Girl you left behind looks so good to me. Looks like some great pics- enjoy!

  4. So many god looking books. I would not know where to start

  5. Replies
    1. Shannon, don't be too jealous -- it's an ebook ARC that expires in a few weeks!

  6. So many good sounding books! I read the first Sultana book and liked it. But I was so confused with the names and titles etc.

  7. Looks like you got some great ones. i hope you start feeling better soon. I read Epstein's latest and loved it.

  8. I always enjoy seeing your diverse list each week. Thanks!

  9. I love your Mailbox Mondays. I always find about 20 new things (yes, 20) to add to my TBR list!!

  10. Oh, how sad you were sick during the nice weather! Hope you feel better!

  11. I'm especially looking forward to Secrets of the Sea House and A Burnable Book. The new Nancy Horan is a book I lost myself in for days. Loved it!

    Feel better soon!

  12. Wow, lots of books! I have read The Gods of Heavenly Punishment and really enjoyed it. I'm curious about Jo Jo Moyes, since I know her other book that came out earlier this year was very popular and well received. I noticed a couple of "wife" titles as well :-)

  13. I always read your Mailbox and get slightly green with envy which is very unlike me!!! Such a lot of gorgeous books. Enjoy them all and hope you feel better soon.

  14. Hope you are feeling better. That looks like a great collection of books.

  15. I read so many ARCs, I'm surprised that I haven't read any of these. But I see a couple that are on my wishlist.

    I find that when I'm sick, I get a lot of reading done, more than any other time, because it's the only time I can sit and do nothing but read, guiltfree.

  16. wow- great books! I love the sound of the Kerry Hudson book - will be putting that on my list. Feel better!

  17. I hope you like The Gods of Heavenly Punishment as much as I did. Looking forward to your thoughts on these. Hope you're feeling better!

  18. Oh no! Be healthy!

    Also, please let The Daring Ladies of Lowell be awesome (like you have control over this). The title and cover are amazing. Intrigued by Asunder as well. And The Luminaries. And Under the Wide and Starry Sky. JOJO MOYES AND DIANE SETTERFIELD. Don't mind me. I'll just be staring jealously.

    Epic haul!
