In the Amazon box there was:
Hugh and Bess by Susan Higginbotham - Susan, I really do intend to read both your first book and this book...I promise!
Key Lime Pie Murder by Joanne Fluke - I have been reading this series for a while now, and whilst I have been a bit disappointed in the last couple I am hopeful that this one will be a return to form.
Shakespeare's Landlord by Charlaine Harris - Having read all of the Sookie Stackhouse books (except for the latest one but I am no. 1 in the queue at the library for that one) and the Harper Connelly books, it was time to give a new series a go.
Lullabies for Little Criminals by Heather O'Neill - I actually ordered this for a book club discussion that started on May 10. Whoops!
Lady of the Roses by Sandra Worth - I haven't actually read the other Sandra Worth books that I own, but I do love the sound of her books!
Yorkshire by Lynne Connolly - I have had these books on my TBR list for a while now.
The Romanovs: The Final Chapter by Robert Massie - I have been reading a bit on the Romanovs over the last few years, particularly Robert Alexander's excellent books, so I figured it was time to attemps some non-fiction about them.
The other parcel had Lover Enshrined by JR Ward and Secrets of Surrender by Madeline Hunter in it.
From the library I picked up the following books. I am particularly excited by the first three on the list because I have been waiting an eternity for them to come onto the library catalogue!
- Mistress of the Sun by Sandra Gulland
- Seduction of the Crimson Rose by Lauren Willig
- The Serpent's Tale by Ariana Franklin
- Bright Shiny Morning by James Frey
- Charming the Highlander by Janet Chapman
- Devil Takes a Bride by Gaelen Foley
- The Secret Diaries of Miss Miranda Cheever by Julia Quin
***It's probably a bit cheeky of me to give this post the above title, because it is my birthday! In addition to having lots of books arrive all at once, I also bought myself a copy of PS I Love You (the movie), some new jeans and a new top, some new pyjamas, and got given a Borders gift card and a new stereo. Now I just have to figure out how to connect the stereo up!
