In My Mailbox is a weekly meme created by Kristi at The Story Siren that gives readers the chance to share the books they bought/received/swapped/borrowed over the past week.

I completely fell in love with the Coralie Bickford-Smith covers for the Penguin Classics and I thought they would be perfect on top of my fireplace. Four books later and some snazzy new bookends and tada – fireplace decorations almost complete. I think I’m going to have to buy more books to completely span the top of the fireplace though.

Jane Eyre by Charlotte Bronte
Cranford by Elizabeth Gaskell
Sense and Sensibility by Jane Austen
Maya bookends from Chiasso

From the library:
Shade by Jeri Smith-Ready (I have to reread before Shift!)

For review:
Thank you Random House!

  1. I love, love, love how you put the books and pretty book ends on your fireplace mantel, such a great idea! I totally agree, these covers of the Penguin Classics are so beautifully simple and just rock in every way possible. Madam Tussaud sounds awesome too, I love the French Revolution so it sounds like a great read! Happy Reading Tara! :)

  2. I recently read and reviewed Madame Tussaud. If you like history, you will like this one. It’s a great story and I also learned much about the French Revolution. Happy Reading!
