  1. I am in date denial too, you are so not the only one!

    And you have the new Chavelier - I'm excited to see what you think of it.

    1. As Kathy below pointed out, I dated the entry wrong. I am so in denial about the date! I'm super excited for the Chevalier.

  2. I have had The Mistress of Rome sitting on my bookshelf for such a long time, I cannot believe I have not read it yet! I have heard lots of good things about it.

    1. I've heard nothing but good things about it as well -- I'm taking it on vacation with me!

  3. I can see you're in denial - tomorrow is actually the 10th! lol The only book I'm familiar with is The Expats. I can't wait to see what you think of your new books.

  4. India Black and the Rajah's Ruby looks fabulous. An exotic mystery.

  5. Great mailbox, Audra! I'll be reading The Passing Bells soon, too, and will also be reading and reviewing The Midwife's Tale. I loved Mistress of Rome and am excited to know a new Tracy Chevalier novel is soon to be released.

    Have a fantastic week!

  9. Great looking mailbox, as usual!! I still have so much wrapping to do, but that is tough with the kiddos around. Must get working on that or I'll be up all night long on Christmas Eve! Enjoy your week! Here is my Monday post.

  10. Love the cover for The Expats, although, for some reason, it kind of looks like a vampire book...but I don't think it is.

    The Passing Bells is so pretty! I got mine too. Also, it's MASSIVE. I was not expecting that. O_O

    17 & Gone. I am a bit envious, but I just read and didn't super like an author who got a lot of comparisons to Suma, so it may be for the best.

    The Midwife's Tale: All I can think is The Handmaid's Tale.

    Looks like The Mistress of Rome might be half-flashing her city.

  11. I'm super jealous of The Midwife's Tale! I have that one pre-ordered for my Kindle and cannot wait. Enjoy The Last Runaway--I read it earlier this year and really liked it. Happy reading!

  12. I got The Passing Bells, too, so I can't wait to see what you think of it. Enjoy your new books! I'm feeling the stress of the holidays, too; there's never enough time to get everything done.

  13. Great mailbox. I want to read The Passing Bells and The Midwife's Tale. Enjoy!
