Book Mail Monday 12/5/2022

Happy Monday, book friends! Tis the season of holiday sales, and every now and again I can’t help but be tempted. Book Outlet had an extra discount going on for Black Friday, and I snagged a few books that I’ve been eyeing for a while. They showed up on my doorstep this past week, along with one review copy. Naturally, that means we’ve got another Book Mail Monday on our hands!

HausMagick: Transform Your Home with Witchcraft by Erica Feldmann

I fell in love with HausWitch during a visit to Salem several years ago, and I’ve debated about buying this book for a long time. I’m not the best when it comes to household maintenance, so the idea of using my living space to create magic makes me about as anxious as the words “interior design.” But when I saw it on sale, I knew the time to check it out had at last arrived.

Modern Tarot: Connecting with your Higher Self Through the Wisdom of the Cards by Michelle Tea

Our spare room is chock full of books on Tarot, yet it never quite feels like I have enough of them. I love using the Tarot as a personal reflection tool, so this book has always seemed perfect for me. Now, I’m finally about to find out.

Witches of America by Alex Mar

I cannot resist an investigative memoir, particularly one that’s billed as a journalist seeking her own spirituality and choosing to deep dive into the history of witchcraft to do so.

The Wife App by Carolyn Macker* (Out June 27th, 2023)

One of these things is not like the other here, and that’s because this one is an advanced reader copy (thank you, Simon & Shuster!). Possibly my first physical ARC for 2023 releases (but don’t quote me on it). This is the story of three women who decide to start an app to try and monetize the type of thankless work often handed off to wives, and I’m definitely curious to see how that goes.

That’s it for me, book friends! Any new books hit your physical or digital shelves this week?

Book Mail Monday: 2022 Holiday Book Edition

Happy Monday, book friends! This week, I have a handful of holiday reads to share. These are the result of a little Bookshop.org shopping spree I went on a few weeks ago when I realized I still hadn’t grabbed the book I’m buddy reading with my OG book friend for the holiday season. Naturally I had to add on a couple more, right?

Kiss Her Once for Me by Allison Cochrun

This is my buddy read and will be my first holiday read of the season, since it’s on a schdule. This is a sapphic holiday rom com from the author of The Charm Offensive. I didn’t get around to reading that one, so this will be my first from this author.

All I Want for Christmas by Maggie Knox

I read Maggie Knox’s The Holiday Swap last year, and it was… fine. Holding out hope this one will fully deliver on the Hallmark Christmas vibes I wanted from their last one.

A Cat Cafe Christmas by Cody Gary

How could I resist a book set in a cat cafe? This is my first read by this author, so we’ll see how we go.

These aren’t the only holiday books on my TBR, but they’re the new additions. I have a few from last year I didn’t get to but want to read this year, so rest assured a holiday TBR post is on its way.

Hope you had a great weekend, book friends! Let me know if any exciting new books entered your collection this week.
