Mailbox Monday is a gathering place for readers to share the books that came into their house last week and explore great book blogs. Warning: Mailbox Monday can lead to envy, toppling TBR piles and humongous wish lists.
January Host: Alyce @ At Home With Books
Here is a list of books that I have received this week:
Mariana by Susanna Kearsley
Agony of the Leaves by Laura Childs
Julia’s Child by Sarah Pinneo
Restoration by Olaf Olafsson
Picture the Dead by Adele Griffin & Lisa Brown
Books that I purchased:
Wild Decembers by Edna O’Brien
Mr. Knightley’s Diary by Amanda Grange
Scourge of the Seas by Angus Konstam
This is what’s on my TBR shelf for this week:
The Thirteen Tale by Diane Setterfield- I started reading this one over the weekend and only have a few chapters left.
Wild Decembers by Edna O’Brien- This one caught my eye because it was compared to Wuthering Heights and I am eager to know if it truly shares the same qualities. I plan to start this one once I finish The Thirteen Tale.
Mariana by Susanna Kearsley- I started reading this book as soon as I pulled it from the envelope.
Legacy of Eden by Lindsay Sweeting- I am reading this one as part of a blog tour that will be held during the third week of February.
The Tory Widow & The Turning of Anne Merrick by Christine Blevins- I absolutely loved her first novel, The Midwife of the Blue Ridge, so I am eager to start these books.
Books that I have finished:
Miss Hilary’s School for Scoundrels by Samantha Grace- I will post the review for this one on Royal Reviews during the month of February.
To Die For; a novel of Anne Boleyn by Sandra Byrd
Aristocrats; Power, Grace, and Decadence: Britain’s Great Ruling Classes from 1066 to the Present by Lawrence James- I finally finished this book.
The Time Machine by H.G. Wells
