Mailbox Monday is the gathering place for readers to share the books that came in their mailbox during the last week. Warning: Mailbox Monday can lead to envy, toppling TBR piles and humongous wish lists.
Happiness is books in my mailbox and I have a very crafty mailbox to share this week. Aside from books in the mail, our elf on the shelf Noel showed up this week also. He has been hanging out around my book shelves.
In the chaos of New York, true love can be hard to find, even when it’s been right under your nose all along…

200 Fun Things to Crochet contains an irresistible collection of small and cute crochet projects suitable for all abilities. Containing a mix of beautiful, three-dimensional projects inspired by nature – flowers, birds, bugs, leaves and even creatures from the sea – as well as a collection of charming floral square motifs, you will have no trouble finding something that will inspire you to pick up a hook and start crocheting. Ideal for using up scraps of yarn, the 200 mini projects are quick and easy to make, both at home and on the go, and make stylish embellishments to give or to keep.
My sister-in-law gifted me Jane Austen Cover to Cover: 200 Years of Classic Book Covers for my birthday yesterday. She knows me well.
Jane Austen never goes out of style. Since the first publication of her six novels in the 19th century, she has delighted generations of fans with classic stories that have never changed—and countless covers that have. Jane Austen Cover to Cover compiles two centuries of design showcasing one of the world’s most beloved and celebrated novelists. With over 200 images, plus historical commentary, Austen trivia, and a little bit of wit, this fascinating and visually intriguing look back is a must for Janeites, design enthusiasts, and book lovers of every age.
My goal for this week is to read much more on my downtime. I’m reading All I Want for Christmas by Jenny Hale and I also want to finish up Take a Chance on Me by Jill Mansell, which I’ve been dipping in and out of here and there. I’ve been crocheting alot lately so my reading takes the back burner. I found this fan stitch pattern online and started working up a wrap/scarf with it.
That’s all for now, what books have arrived at your doorstep recently? Enjoy your week xo
