A Lot of Books

While I don't get an insane amount of books in the mail, I do keep adding to my collection.  Every Monday I keep meaning to do a Mailbox Monday post but I have a little guy who keeps taking up all my attention (I'll do a longer post on him in a few):

So here's some of my new additions...

From the mailbox, I received not one, but TWO copies of The Map of Time.  That's right...when I review I'll be giving away one of these beautiful copies.  Isn't the end paper just gorgeous!?!?

Books I won:

I got the first stack from Bibliophile by the Sea and I won the autographed copy of The Cleveland Creep from Stacy's Books (isn't Gage adorable?).

The Heart Specialist
The Little Women Letters
The Dressmaker

Books from the library book sale.  Yeah, I know it's a crazy ton...you should have seen the look on my husband's face.  I told him we all have our addictions and to not judge (I mean it could be designer handbags or shoes...)

The Devil's Company by David Liss - My husband and I listened to The Whiskey Rebels and loved it.  I'm going to be collecting his books now.

American Rust - On the 1001 Books List so I thought why not.

The Invisible Mountain - I thought I read something good about this one..and it's historical fiction.

The Kingdom of Ohio - Sounded good and I thought I read something about it too.

Prodigal Summer by Barbara Kingsolver - LOVED Poisonwood Bible so I'm collecting some of her stuff too.

The Forgotten Garden by Kate Morton - Really enjoyed The House at Riverton (my review) and I have The Distant Hours to review as well.

His Dark Materials Trilogy - I read the first one, The Golden Compass (my review) and have been meaning to read the rest.

The Mambo Kings Play Songs of Love by Oscar Hijuelos - How awesome is it that I found a copy of this book right after I read his memoir? Definitely going to read this one soon.

The Winter King by Bernard Cornwell - I have three of his books now and need to get on reading him.

Behind the Mask: The Unknown Thrillers of Louisa May Alcott - I've been wanting to do a LMA challenge for awhile now.  It may be a Fall or Winter thing though. 

Portrait in Sepia by Isabel Allende - My favorite Allende book so far and I'm collecting her works.

The Vanishing Act of Esme Lennox - Heard some good things I think.

Beside a Burning Sea - Think I heard good things...or it could have been bad. Not sure.

Foreign Tongue - Adding to my Paris in July reads.  Woohoo!

The God of Small Things - Think I've heard bad and good things.  Thought I'd try it out myself.

Naked by David Sedaris - Collecting his stuff too because I get such a kick out of his writing.

That's it for now!  Have you read any of these?  Or are they on your TBR list?
