Fanciful Reader

a book blog about romance and more. . .

Mailbox Monday 10/24

Mailbox Monday is a gathering place for readers to share the books that came into their house last week and explore great book blogs. Warning: Mailbox Monday can lead to envy, toppling TBR piles and humongous wish lists.

This Month, Mailbox Monday is being hosted by Serena at Savvy Verse and Wit.

Last week I went on vacation so I didn’t buy as many books as usual. Despite encountering a tropical storm for the first few days of the trip, I enjoyed my family’s first cruise ever to the Bahamas.

Here’s what I picked up this week:
Scandalous Desires (Maiden Lane) by Elizabeth Hoyt
I’d Change My Life If I Had More Time by Doreen Virtue
Deluxe: How Luxury Lost Its Luster by Dana Thomas
The Girl in the Gatehouse by Julie Klassen
The 12 Secrets of Highly Successful Women: A Portable Life Coach for Creative Women by Gail McMeekin

You can tell from the picks above that two of my favorite genres are romance and self-improvement.

What about you? What did you pick up this week? Did you stick to your favorite genres or did you choose something a little bit different?

  5. The Girl in the Gatehouse and Scandalous Desires sounds good. Sometimes you gotta love some historical romances!

  6. I’ve been meaning to read the latest Hoyt series (I enjoyed the Four Soldiers series).
