Monday Mailbox

A new year and a new set of months of review books arriving. They look great of course, per usual. This past week's mailbox arrival:

Small Wars by Sadie Jones came from Harper Perennial thanks to Trish from TLC Book Tours.
A seemingly peaceful posting to Cyprus turns that erupts into war, this story of the personal changes that brings about in Hal, a major in the British Army, and his wife Clara sounds like a captivating look at war, morality, and the ways in which they erode the people involved in them.

Women on the Verge of a Nervous Breakthrough by Ruth Pennebaker came from the author thanks to Trish from TLC Book Tours.
Stories about three generations of women always catch my interest and this tale of family and the sandwich generation looks like it will be good for more than a few giggles.

As always, if you'd like to see the marvelous goodies in other people's mailboxes, make sure to visit Rose City Reader as she is hosting this month's Mailbox Monday and have fun seeing how we are all doing our part to keep the USPS and delivery services viable.


  1. Those both look good, and the second one is completely new to me.

  2. I think both books sound good - I'll watch for your reviews.

  3. Ohhh - Women on the Verge looks really good. My Mom, Grandmother and I frequently get together and visit, so I would love to hear about another set of 3 generations getting together. ;)

  5. Both look interesting. Small Wars - will wait for your review.


I have had to disable the anonymous comment option to cut down on the spam and I apologize to those of you for whom this makes commenting a chore. I hope you'll still opt to leave me your thoughts. I love to hear what you think, especially so I know I'm not just whistling into the wind here at my computer.
