Mailbox Monday - December acquisitions
Here are the books that I received during December:
A Brief History of Montmoray by Michelle Cooper - I received this book as a gift when I appeared on the local radio station talking about book blogging! It was a lovely surprise, especially as it is a book I hadn't heard of before and it does appear to be right up my reading alley.
The Last Dragon Slayer by Jasper Fforde - At the end of last month I went to Perth, and so had a little time to browse the shelves at the airport. I was VERY surprised to see a new Jasper Fforde book out as I don't recall having heard anything about it! After I got home, I was at the bookstore and I couldn't help but buy it!
Outside In by Maria V Snyder - Netgalley is a very dangerous place to hang out! I got a number of books from there this month including this one. I really need to read the prequel, Inside Out, sooner rather than later so I can get to this one!
The Crimson Rooms by Katharine McMahon - Got this one for review.
Emma, Mansfield Park, Sense and Sensibility, Northanger Abbey, Pride and Prejudice and Persuasion all by Jane Austen - Because one day I am actually going to read some Jane Austen. I feel it is something that I am lacking in my reading at the moment.
Wild Man Creek and Promise Canyon by Robyn Carr - I have been obsessed with this series over the last month or so. These are the newest two books which will be released next year, and I got these from Netgalley.
Like Clockwork by Bonnie Dee - I wanted to get hold of some more steampunk and this was on Netgalley so I snapped it up.
His for the Holidays anthology - Another Netgalley find, which I got because I have enjoyed the Josh Lanyon books that I have read before.
That Holiday Feeling anthology - I got this book for one reason, and one reason only! There was a novella from the Virgin River series in it, and so I had to download it so I could read it.
Angel's Peak by Robyn Carr - This was the next book in the series after the novella in the previous anthology, and my library didn't have it! No way could I wait for an Inter Library Loan to come though so I downloaded it, and then read it that night. This series has caused me quite a few hours of lost sleep recently.
Sheltering Hearts by Robyn Carr - Another novella, this one was fortunately available as a free download from the Harlequin site.
Tiny Sunbirds, Far Away by Christie Watson- Another Netgalley book. I have a literary soft spot for Nigerian literature, and whilst this one is not by a Nigerian author, it's protagonist is, so as soon as I saw it, I had to have it.
A Creed in Stone Creek by Linda Lael Miller - I have only read one of Linda Lael Miller's historical western romances before, and I meant to read more, so this was my chance (another Netgalley book!)
