Mailbox Monday (19)

Mailbox Monday is a gathering place for readers to share the books that came into their house last week and explore great book blogs. Warning: Mailbox Monday can lead to envy, toppling TBR piles and humongous wish lists. Mailbox Monday is a traveling meme, with a new host every month. Which means if you want to join in on the fun in January, head over to Lori's Reading Corner!
Mailbox Monday
For Review from TLC Book Tours
All That I Am by Anna Funder
The House Girl by Tara Conklin
Both of these are books that I've been wanting to read for a while and I'm so excited to have the chance to review! (I think I added All That I Am onto my to-read list on goodreads over a year ago.) Both are historical fiction (one of my favorite genres), with the first taking place during the Holocaust and the second during the 1850s in Virginia. I have really high hopes for both, so hopefully they're able to live up to my expectations!

What did you find in your mailbox this week? And do you find that too often your expectations for books are too high, or does all the hype only make you love them more?
