In My Mailbox, No. 1

As promised in my previous post, I am now doing In My Mailbox, a Story Siren meme where I list all the books in my immediate vicinity, so even if I don't blog about them you know they're there. And they don't feel ignored and rise up against me, which would be as frightening to you as it is to me if you could see Just. How. Many. There. Are. 

Seriously, shelves, bookcases, lampshades, fridge. Everywhere. All of them simultaneously giving me the evil eye and the come on until I don't know which way to look. Essh.

Quality of Mercy

Barry Unsworth's 'The Quality of Mercy': ARC from Hutchison, review to come in next week or so;

The Woman in White (Barnes & Noble Classics)

Wilkie Collin's 'The Woman in White': an ex-Book Club choice. However, seeing as I am no longer doing the book club (I'll tell you that story sometime) I have put it down for now. I will pick up it soon though, as it's really rather good.

The Tiger's Wife: A Novel

Tea Obreht's 'The Tiger's Wife': I have read this actually, but it's hanging around waiting for a Book Quote Friday post or a review.

Written Lives

Javier Marias' 'Written Lives': bought after reading this post on 'Wuthering Expectations'. Sounds a little crazy, but that makes it all the more tempting to pick up.

A Feast for Crows (A Song of Ice and Fire, Book 4)

George R. R. Martin's 'A Feast for Crows': although, to be honest, I am not reading this and have all but no intention to. My husband is reading his way through the entire series however, so they are all over the house. And 'Game of Thrones' was, until the series ended, all over my TV. So it deserves a mention I think.


  1. Nice mailbox this week. The Tigers Wife looks like a good book.
    Hope you enjoy your new books,
    Book Sniffers Anonymous

  2. Thanks Kristin! I enjoyed it, although won't say more than that as I'll be writing about it soon :)

    Thanks for stopping by!
