Mailbox Monday-Best Mailbox EVER!

 Mailbox Monday was created by Marcia at The Printed Page. It is currently on tour and this month is being hosted by Rose City Reader.

I had a wee bit o' Christmas money left and I am starting a biggest book loser challenge on February 1st so I had to do a little shopping and get in my last hurrah before I'm not allowing myself to buy books anymore. Well, I ended up with some awesome reads to keep me busy til the end of the year when the challenge is over and I can go nuts and buy a trillion books :)

  • Maid Marian by Elsa Watson

  • The Winter Sea by Susanna Kearsley
  • Victory of Eagles (Temeraire Bk 5) by Naomi Novik
  • The Edge of the World by Kevin J. Anderson
