Monday Mailbox

I can't wait to dive into the books that arrived this week (and have already finished one of them--so unheard of for me to get right on it that quickly!). They look completely varied but definitely great. This past week's mailbox arrivals:

Skipping a Beat by Sarah Pekkanen came from Jessica at BookSparks PR.
When her husband has a heart attack and comes back as a different person, Julia has to decide if she wants this newer, kinder, gentler man who makes her face the realities of their pre-heart attack life together. Intriguing, no?

Chocolate and Vicodin by Jennette Fulda came from Gallery Books.
I am a migraine sufferer myself so I can't imagine the horror of a headache that lasts literally years but this account of just that makes me incredibly curious.

The Hottest Dishes of the Tartar Cuisine by Alina Bronsky came from Leigh at Regal Literary.
A fierce grandmother who has an alternate view of herself from everyone else who quails in front of her, her passive daughter, and prodigy of a granddaughter make up the characters in this lauded tale. It sounds fantastic.

As always, if you'd like to see the marvelous goodies in other people's mailboxes, make sure to visit Library of Clean Reads 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.

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.
