Mailbox Monday January 17, 2011



In January, Mailbox Monday is being hosted by Rose City Reader.





Last week I received A Discovery of Witches by Deborah Harkness. I can't wait to start this one - it's been compared to The Historian by Elizabeth Kostova, one of my very favourite novels.




I also received a book I bought from Book Depository. I saw The Blade Itself by Joe Abercrombie recommended somewhere (I think it was viaLibraryThing). This is the first book of a trilogy that just looked too good to pass by.

Last, but not least, I received five books from Cindy:




The Snow Globe by Sheila Roberts

Two Tickets to the Christmas Ball by Donita K. Paul


Finding Father Christmas and Engaging Father Christmas both by Robin Jones Gunn


and:

Simon's Cat by Simon Tofield

Thanks for all the books, Cindy!

Discovery of Witches is one I'll definitely have to look for. I loved The Historian too. I just packed away The Blade Itself, but I hope to get to it one day.

Enjoy all your new books, Donna!
