Mailbox Monday, Jan 30

Seen both at Mailbox Monday -- hosted in January at At Home With Books -- and The Story Siren, my Mailbox Monday/In My Mailbox.

An amazing week of arrivals, just the medicine I needed to feel better! I had a yucky weekend of snotting and coughing (Ti, I did, however, use my neti pot with great success so thank you!) but checking out these books made me very happy!

What did you get this week? Read any of these?

  1. That is quite a haul of books, and it has a fascinating selection of titles. I loved Before I Go To Sleep and hope you do too! I'm hoping to dive into Gemma Hardy sometime soon, so I'll eagerly await your review of it!

    1. Carrie -- I'm a bit nervous of Before I Go To Sleep only because I'm a weenie -- here's hoping it's not going to scare me to the point that I'll never sleep again! ;) I'm super excited for Gemma Hardy!

    1. Darlyn -- I read it once a million years ago and hated it (I know, I fail as a reader and women lit lover!) so I'm eager to reread it as an adult.

    2. I read Jane Eyre in college during my semester abroad in England and loved it. I just added The Flight of Gemma Hardy to my to-read list, but am nervous. I loved Rebecca and found The Lantern too similar so I didn't enjoy it. I'm hoping the same doesn't occur with Gemma Hardy.

  11. Hah! I got The Doctor and the Diva from the library. It looks kind of good-in-a-pop-culture-historical-novely way. If that makes sense. i.e. it shouldn't be taken too seriously.

  14. What a great selection of books! I'm very interested in reading the Flight of Gemma Hardy and Before I Go To Sleep which is staring at me from my shelf!

    I'm already looking forward to your reviews of these books!

    I hope you're feeling much better. I'm hoping you can go home after work and crawl into bed with one of your new reads...relaxation and a good book: a surefire remedy to a bad cold (I hope!)
