  1. A lot of your books are new to me. I hope you love all of them.

    Grace @ Books of Love

    1. Hi Grace!!
      Thanks for stopping by! Yes, the top 4 books are not yet released. I got them at NetGalley and was invited to read one or two from the publishers. I know for SURE the book Doll House by M J Arlidge is definitely at NetGalley! This is kind of funny! I requested it, AND the publisher also invited me to join in on their blog tour! The publisher is Penguin/Random House! I LOVE this author!! LOVE him!! It's a thriller, and it's NOT for the faint of heart, for instance the last book groups of two people would be abducted and the ONLY way to save themselves was to take the gun the Abductor left in whatever place he locked them inside of was to KILL the other person. That was the ONLY way. It's a little shocking, but really good if you can take it!
      I'll be over to see your books next, too!
      I'll see you in just a bit!

  2. Great haul! I love the sound of all of these books. I have some of them (Bittersweet, Midwife's Revolt, The Postcard and Blogger Girl) on my TBR so I need to read these soon too. I really want to read The Making of a Milliner, I love hats and wear them every chance I get. Hope Under Mistletoe sounds fab too. Hope you enjoy reading your new books!

    I just followed you via Bloglovin' so that I can keep up with your book posts and reviews. :)

    Here’s my Weekly wrap up/stacking the shelves post:

    1. Hi Hayley!
      Thanks for stopping by! It's GREAT to hear we love some of the SAME books! I LOVE that!!
      I got The Making of A Milliner over at NetGalley if you want to go over and grab it!! Do a search and it will come up!! Also, let's see, the publisher is Dover Publications! You can go to their page and Request it!! I HOPE you get it!! I know in my Profile I list the crafts I LOVE and the different crafts I have previously won ribbons on at the Michigan State Fair. They don't run it anymore because Detroit is just tooooo bad and the attendance went too low. Heck, when we drove there to drop our stuff off, people were just roaming along IN the streets! It was SCARY!!! Thank GOD for air conditioning!! We kept the windows rolled up and the doors locked! You could tell some were drunk off their behinds! That was one place you did NOT go by yourself! I don't know why they never moved it out a little further than keeping it in the bad place it was in?? Go figure. Yes, tell them you are into hats, and that may give you a good chance of getting the book! Add that to your Profile BEFORE you request it! I HOPE that works well for you!!
      Do you live in the US or in the UK? I'm just curious because you wear them all the time, and I just LOVE that! I wish women here in the US would wear them!! They are SO classy!!
      Please make sure you come back and tell us if you got the book or not!!! Even though this book released already released on the 18th, they may STILL be granting requests!! I surely would try because "their" Archive date isn't until Dec 8th! Oooo! You have a GREAT chance!!!
      Yes, I have a LOT of reading to do! I've been having to turn down requests in my email, too. I always feel bad about turning down those requests, but the ability to get to review "these books", HOW could ANYONE say NO??? I surely can't!!!
      I'll be coming to YOUR blog next and follow you everywhere, too! If you don't have a blog, I'll follow whatever you post on!!
      Thanks for coming by!! I'll see you in just a few!!

  3. Looks like an interesting haul! Some of the covers are awesome. Hope you enjoy.

    1. Hi Nikki!
      Yes! Aren't the covers gorgeous???!!! Wow!!! I KNOW that IS what sucks me into wanting to read these SO bad! LOL!!! I WILL be SO busy reading these next few weeks to get them read, and the other books I have, too! I have a LOT to read!
      I'll come by your blog and see what you're reading, too!
      Thank you for coming here and taking a look!! It's SO nice to have you ALL come by!
      On my way to see you now!!
      Take care!
