Mailbox Monday

 Mailbox Monday was created by Marcia at A Girl and Her Books.  Mailbox Monday is now on tour and this month it is making it's home at Savvy Verse & Wit.

 Between arrivals in my mailbox and new additions from the fall FOL sale I just went to my library has gotten just a wee bit bigger.  Here is what I got:

 From the Library Sale:

  • The Postmistress by Sarah Blake
  • The Executioner's Song by Norman Mailer
  • Claudius the God by Robert Graves
  • The Handmaid's Tale by Margaret Atwood
  • The Woman in White by Wilkie Collins
  • Elizabeth & Catherine by Robert Coughlin


 From Paperbackswap:
  • The Princess of Nowhere by Lorenzo Borghese
  • The Fruit of Her Hands by Michelle Cameron
  • Daughters of the River Huong by Uyen Nicole Duong
  • Elbow Room by James Alan McPherson
  • Oak Apple by Cynthia Harrod-Eagles
  • The King's Mistress by Emma Campion
  • Daughter of Siena by Marina Fiorato

 And for Review:
  • The Hypnotist by M J Rose


  1. I really need to get back to the Morland books! I liked The Postmistress when I read it last year too.

  2. I have won The Postmistress and just anxiously awaiting this. I have almost the entire series of the Morland dynasty (many reviews up on the blog) Beautiful stories and gorgeous period setting.

  3. I read The Executioner's Song years ago - I think it was before I was married and remember being blown away by it. I wonder what I would think of it now. I hope you love your new books.

  4. You received some great books. The only book on the list I've read is The Handmaid's Tale, which I loved, but I have several others sitting on my shelf waiting to be read...including The Hypnotist, which I'll also be reviewing.


  5. What a great selection of books! I got The Postmistress on my last trip to the FOL sale too (then I got home and realized I already owned a copy - oops!).

  6. Elizabeth & Catherine book is new to me and it sounds good. I have The King's Mistress but haven't read it yet. Hope you enjoy your new books!

  7. I love library sales - looks like you found some good reads!

  8. The Fruit of her Hands look intristing. I have The King's Mistress and The Daughter lf Siena at home so I will be looking forward to your thoughts on them. Enjoy!

  9. A couple of these books are already on my to-read list, but now I have added a few more. :)

    I am just stopping by to let you know that you won the Liebster Blog Award on my blog. Come check it out!
