A Sunday Retrospective is inspired by In My Mailbox at The Story Siren and TGIF at GReads!, where I share the books that I've acquired during the week, last week's posts and interesting links.
IN MY MAILBOX
This week, I got a couple of books in the mail - one finished copy of an ARC that was sent to me, and one ARC that I've been dying to read.
Silhouette of a Sparrow by Molly Beth Griffin (Thanks Meredith of Milkweed Editions!)
Check out this week's set of posts:
- Jess of Books and Sensibility wrote about the DMV area (DC-Maryland-Virginia).
- Elena interviewed Sam of Realm of Fiction for Travel Tales!
- Aussie! Aussie! Aussie! Magan hosts a love-fest for Australian authors & books.
- I shared about a few of my favorite books featuring Asian culture.

- What are the top ten books I've read since I started my blog? Check out my first TTT in a while!
- I featured a guest post from Jess about the DMV area!
- Even though I haven't read Princess Academy, I absolutely loved Palace of Stone.
- Speechless takes an interesting concept and a relevant issue and puts them together beautifully.
