Mail on Sunday #6

AKA In My Mailbox is a meme inspired byAlea of Pop Culture Junkie and hosted by the lovely Kristi over at The Story Siren. It's a look at all the books we've acquired during the week.
This week, I've got 3 books. Bought them all. From my local charity Scannappeal. This week is a  'I judged books by their covers week'. Yep all these books found their way to me purely on their covers!


Geisha of Gion by Mineko Iwasaki. It's biographical...not my usual choice of book but I love all things Geisha. I would love to go to Japan...I'm a little obsessed with it! The cover of the book is what drew me in...then I read the synopsis at the back and paid for it!
Goodreads
Tipping the Velvet by Sarah Waters.It's naughty, sensual with some twists...it had me at naughty!
Goodreads
THE SECRET SHOPPER'S REVENGEThe Secret Shopper's Revenge by Kate Harrison. This cover is absolutely gorgeous. The pics just don't show how lovely it is. It's embossed, shiny, glittery...I hope it's as great as the cover! I love the frupy underdog versus the always skinny, sexy, perfect girlies. Story of my life...lol!
Goodreads.
Off now to scour the many mailboxes out in the blogospere...
