Monday Mailbox

Another fantastic week for me with a cascade of great looking books that winged their ways through the USPS to my house. I'm so lucky! This past week's mailbox arrivals:

I, Iago by Nicole Galland came from TLC Book Tours and William Morrow for a blog tour.
Iago is such a perfect Shakespeare baddie that I am curious to see how Galland posits he became such a reprehensible character.

The Orchardist by Amanda Coplin came from Harper.
A solitary orchardist who opens his heart to two wild girls who steal apples from his trees, this sounds like an expansive and different kind of western.

The Flight of Gemma Hardy by Margot Livesey came from Harper.
An homage to Jane Eyre set in Scotland and Ireland in the 50's and 60's? Be still my beating heart!

The Good Dream by Donna VanLiere came from St. Martin's Press.
An old maid discovers and cares for a feral boy sneaking into her garden in order to eat, this sounds similar to another one I got this week but I suspect they will be wildly different stories.

An Uncommon Education by Elizabeth Percer came from TLC Book Tours and Harper for a blog tour.
A novel about saving others and ultimately saving yourself, this sounds great to me.

Lost in Shangri-La by Mitchell Zuckoff came from TLC Book Tours and Harper Perennial for a blog tour.
An account of a plane crash deep in the Dutch New Guinean jungle during WWII, this promises to be a completely gripping read.

Stranger Here Below by Joyce Hinnefeld came from Unbridled Books.
About three generations of very different women, this novel of the love and caring that makes family, even between unrelated women, sounds fantastic.

As always, if you'd like to see the marvelous goodies in other people's mailboxes, make sure to visit Cindy's Love of Books 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 love to hear what you think, especially so I know I'm not just whistling into the wind here at my computer.
