Monday Mailbox

It was another fantastically busy week in my mailbox. The good news is the sheer volume of wonderful reads waiting for me. The bad news is the sheer volume of wonderful reads waiting for me. ;-) This past week's mailbox arrivals:

Elusive Dawn by Gabriele Wills came from the author and Premier Virtual Author Book Tours for a blog tour.

The second book in Wills' Muskoka trilogy, I am looking forward to revisiting the wonderful characters I met in The Summer Before the Storm.

The Paradise Guest House by Ellen Sussman came from Ballantine Books and TLC Book Tours for a blog tour.

I remember hearing about the Balinese nightclub bombing so this novel about one American who survived it and her search for the man who saved her that night is completely intriguing.

The Promise of Stardust by Priscille Sibley came from William Morrow and TLC Book Tours for a blog tour.

About a young couple who desperately want a baby, when Elle is declared brain dead after an accident and then discovered to finally be pregnant, husband Matt faces an agonizing decision. This one looks to be such an emotional book that it will require an entire box of Kleenex.

The Farm by Emily McKay came from Berkley UK.

About a creepy, terrifying future, without having read it, there's something about this one that brings to mind The Handmaid's Tale for me. Not my usual sort of book, this fleeting resemblance makes me infinitely curious though.

Crazy Rich Asians by Kevin Kwan came from Doubleday.

Centered around an American Born Chinese woman dropped into the opulence and excess of Singaporean society because of her boyfriend's family, this one promises to be highly entertaining and over the top.

Autobiography of Us by Aria Beth Sloss came from Henry Holt.

Two close friends coming of age in the '60s and wanting more out of life than their mothers teach them to expect, I do gravitate towards novels about friendships, especially those that are terribly broken as this one comes to be.

As always, if you'd like to see the marvelous goodies in other people's mailboxes, make sure to visit Lori's Reading Corner 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.

  3. Nice mailbox...ENJOY!!

    I like THE PARADISE GUEST HOUSE...hope it is good.
