Mailbox Monday #113

Mailbox Mondays (click the icon at the right to check out the new blog) has gone on tour since Marcia at The Printed Page passed the torch.  This month our host is Rose City Reader .  Kristi of The Story Siren continues to sponsor her In My Mailbox meme.  Both of these memes allow bloggers to share what books they receive in the mail or through other means over the past week.

Just be warned that these posts can increase your TBR piles and wish lists.

Here’s what I received:

1.  Dreaming in English by Laura Fitzgerald from Penguin.

2.  Haunting Jasmine by Anjali Banerjee from Penguin.

3.  The Other Life by Ellen Meister for a TLC Tour in February/March.

4.  Staying at Daisy’s by Jill Mansell from Sourcebooks for March review.

5.  Half in Love by Linda Gray Sexton for a TLC Tour in January.

6.  Cross Fire by James Patterson from my mom.

7. The Good Thief by Hannah Tinti from the author and publisher of One Story.
