Hello, and welcome to Monday Mailbox. This month, Monday Mailbox is being hosted by Kristen over at BookNAround.
This week I treated myself to a little Amazon shopping. Given my TBR pile (if we're just counting books I currently own, and not counting the ones I just bought, we're at 46) I really shouldn't...but I can't help myself. So, without further ado, my books:
The Elegance of the Hedgehog, by Muriel Barberry
Purchased this specifically so that I can read it back to back with Barberry's Gourmet Rhapsody.
A Time of Miracles, by Anne-Laure Bondoux
Bondoux also wrote The Princetta.
Swell, by Ionna Karystiani
I'd be lying to you if I said I didn't buy this mostly for the cover/title.
Perfume: The Story of a Murderer, by Patrick Süskind
A few years ago I was doing a search on Netflix for Alan Rickman movies. This was when I was still paying to get dvds delivered, not just instant watch. The 2006 English-language German film adaptation of this novel popped up; I had never heard of it, but Alan Rickman was in it, and that was kind of all I cared about. It's a weird story...the film is gorgeous. Like...gorgeous. And I'd always intended on reading the novel, but things kind of got away from me....46 books on my TBR list, remember? Now I have it, and I'm planning to read it by year's end.
