The first half of the week saw my mailbox yawning like an empty cavern (well, an empty cavern spitting bills at us, of course). But the second half of the week a few books arrived, cheering me up immensely.
First from Spiegel & Grau came The Blue Notebook by James A. Levine. The story of an Indian girl sold into sexual slavery who keeps a diary of her experience, this promises to be a difficult read but I've already heard good things about it so as odd as it seems, I am looking forward to reading it.
Then from Hatchette Book Group came Houston, We Have a Problema by Gwendolyn Zepeda. I'm still a bit baffled by this one as I received a copy (actually, two) of it two months ago and have already read and reviewed it. But an extra copy never goes amiss when you are contemplating an international giveaway, right?
Lastly, author Elizabeth Wix sent me a copy ofher novel A Fortunate Child. This is the story of a child born to a German mother just after WWII and adopted by an English mother. You can see more about the book on Elizabeth's website.
As always, if you want to see what others found in their mailboxes this past week, check out Marcia's blog at The Printed Page. And don't forget to stop by below and enter my massive book giveaway!
