Mailbox Monday, August 20

This week's Mailbox Monday (hosted in August at 5 Minutes for Books) is a lovely want-to-spread-them-around-me pile of arrivals -- some serious eye-candy. To learn more about any book, click on a cover and the link will automatically open in a new tab/window.

What did you get?  Have any of these?

For Review

  1. Oh man, you won't know where to start. I just read Wallflower in Bloom - it's really cute!

    1. It looks sweet and fun -- not my usual genre, but I'm trying to expand!

  2. I am so jealous that you have a copy of "The Beautiful Indifference"! I've had it on my wishlist for over a year but haven't been able to find anywhere to purchase it for much less than $20 (and I never spend that much on a book). I hope you enjoy it!

    1. I'm super excited to dig in -- I've been growing an interest in short fic -- and the cover of her volume is stunning.

  3. Wow! I'm impressed with your book haul! I have the first 5 books from Susan Carroll's The Dark Queen series in my TBR pile. I didn't know the series would continue after that - guess I have some catching up to do... ;)

    Enjoy your books!

    1. I'm a bit apprehensive as I hadn't read the previous five novels so we'll see how lost I get!

    1. I'm excited to see she's returned to short fiction -- folks have raved more about that than her novel.

  6. You really got a handful last week! Eye candy for sure. Before the rain looks like a terrific book that I should read! Enjoy!

    1. Harvee -- I'm reviewing Before the Rain on Wednesday -- it's a pretty interesting memoir so far!

  7. I have heard so many good things about Meljean Brook's novels. I also love the author, so I hope her books live up to her internet persona.
    Also? The Archived? Looks so so good! Jealous!
    We're already talked about how fantastic Abide with Me looks so I will be eagerly awaiting your thoughts on it. Wuthering Heights in modern day Afghanistan? Yes, please!

    I got The Girl Who Fell Beneath Fairyland from NG, but I still need to read the first one! I do love the covers for both of those books. So unique and pretty.

    Very awesome haul, Audra!

    1. I'm a tiiiiiiny bit nervous about tackling Meljean Brook's first novel, The Iron Duke, since it's got this rape-y vibe, apparently, but otherwise, everyone thinks her series is stellar. I'm quite excited.

      I am literally drooling over Abide With Me -- I cannot, cannot wait for it.

  8. Wow, the cover of The Salt God's Daughter is gorgeous.

  14. These look gorgeous. The cover for Salt God's Daughter is very, very intriguing .... is that a new Karen Russell? But I did not even get to Swamplandia yet, how can this be, lol ;D.

  15. Whaaaat? There's another book after The Girl Who Circumnavigated Fairyland? This is excellent to hear. The covers for that apparent series are kickass.

  16. Oh, these are fabulous new arrivals! I am excited that you will get the chance to read these! Some of the titles are new to me, and some I will be reading as well. Exceptionally nice mailbox today, Audra!
