In the Mail

Steplings - an ARC by C.W. Smith
Plaster Studio:  Mixed Media Techniques by Stephanie Lee &amp Judy Wise (I'm loving this one)
Stitch Alchemy by Kelli Perkins

Happy Returns by Angela Thirkell - ARC from  Beaufort Books (I remember seeing positive reviews of Thirkell,so when offered copies, I gladly accepted!)
Enter Sir Robert by Angela Thirkell -   Also from Beaufort Books
I'm Dancing as Fast as I Can by Barbara Gordon -   Another one from the nice people at Beaufort Books

Murder at Beechlands by Maureen Sarsfield - I ordered this after seeing the review at In So Many Words

I'm going to have to forego the library for a while....because there are more ARCs and Amazon orders on the way.


  1. Murder at Beechlands looks interesting. I look forward to your review

  2. bookmagic - I really like the cover on this one, a little Edward Gory-esque, and I'm expecting an Agatha Christie era ambiance. :)

    Kailana - Thanks, I'm getting a little behind and a little overwhelmed, but in a good way!

  3. I've heard good things about Thirkell too. A coworker told me that if I liked Trollope I would like Thirkell. I do like Trollope but haven't gotten around to trying Thirkell yet.

  4. Jill - :) It has been a good week for mail!

    Stefanie - It has been years since I've read any Trollope, but I enjoyed the ones I read. Hope Thirkell will prove as good!

  5. It's been a while since I've heard anything about Thirkell! Thanks for reintroducing these books. Yes, Thirkell is a pretty well-known author of times past. I hadn't heard of Beaufort Books, though.


  6. Love the cover of the Beechlands book! Looks like you've got some good reading ahead...

  7. Deb - It will be a while before I can get to these books, but I'm looking forward to them!

    Anne - I'm a sucker for a good cover!
