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?).

Netherland
The Heart Specialist
Faith
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?
