My birthday was in November, so not only did I pick up some books for review, I also received some bookish presents, and my husband and daughter gave me money to move my blog to a self-hosted site, which I love.

So here’s my mailbox for last month. Mailbox Monday was created by Marcia ofย  A Girl and Her Books and is being hosted by Jenny Q at Let Them Read Books.

These are the presents from my brother and his wife. Aren’t they awesome? If you can’t tell, the t-shirt has the words of “The Raven” by Poe forming the silhouette. And the cup is made out of US corn plastic.

Now the books I received:

The Lola Quartet by Emily St. John Mandell (From Unbridled Books via NetGalley)

Twas the Night by Sandra Hill, Trish Jensen and Kate Holmes (from Bell Bridge Books via NetGalley)

8: The Previously Untold Story of the Previously Unknown 8th Dwarf by Michael Mullin (From the author)

Mrs. Jeffries and the Mistletoe Mix-up byย  Emily Brightwell (Won from Kaye at Pudgy Penguin Perusals. Thanks!)

Nicholas St. North and the Battle of the Nightmare King by William Joyce (purchased)
