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


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!
