Mailbox Monday, Dec 9

It's been more than a month since I've posted a Mailbox Monday update, so, here's my immense haul for the last five or six weeks.

Mailbox Monday is a weekly meme, hosted in December by Rose City Reader. The creator of the meme is polling bloggers about the future of Mailbox Monday, so if you care or are interested, check out the post and vote.

What did you get this week?

For Review


Won, thanks to Dark Jane Austen Book Club!

Won, thanks to the author


  1. wow, want want want want those books

  2. I am really out of it - most of those books are new to me. I hope they're all terrific!

  3. Great mailbox! The only book on the list I've read in The Splendour Falls, which although not my favourite of Susanna Kearsley novels is still really good.

    I hope you enjoy each and every one of your new acquisitions.

    1. I'm very excited for it -- Kearsley is a new favorite!

  4. Wow, that is a book list to envy! I snagged Longbourn from the library and I hope to find time to read it before it goes back

  5. I'm also going to be reading Mrs. Lincoln's Rival and I'm very excited! It seems like a fun one to pair with some non-fiction about the same topic, which is something I really love to do :)

    1. I always wish I could do that but I rarely read non-fiction -- I'm slower reading NF than fic!

  6. how do you manage to read so quickly?

    1. Amy, I doubt I'll even read half of these (sadly!) -- and I get my reading done by staying up all night to an ungodly hour until I finish! If I'm on a roll, I can get through three or four books in a week.

  7. Give me a minute to not die of sheer envy right now! You get such fantastic books (and some interesting ones I never see anywhere else).

    I know you're a busy lady and don't have time to read all the books, but I would love to see what you think of:

    While Beauty Slept
    The Mapmaker's Daughter (lotta hype for this one!)
    Mistress of the Wind (I think this is an interesting book for Diener to write!)
    Frog Music (I remember you as iffy about the author's Room)
    THE SPLENDOUR FALLS (you know how I feel about Kearsley!)

    I am also on the tours for Becoming Josephine and Last Train to Paris! I hope they work out well for you :)
