Monday Mailbox

The mailbox hasn't been as full as usual but I have been pleased as punch by what has made it into my possession, a fact that has me anticipating the mail each and every day. I swear I'm like Pavlov's dog: when I hear the mailbox clank shut, I start salivating! This week's mailbox arrivals:

The Sister Season by Jennifer Scott came from NAL Accent.

My only sibling is my younger sister so I am always attracted to stories about other sisters, especially stories about more than one sister. And a tale set at the holidays when sisters come home as a family for the first time in a long time and face the past that scattered them so far apart is especially appealing.

Good Kings, Bad Kings by Susan Nussbaum came from Algonquin Paperbacks and LibraryThing Early Reviewers.

The Bellwether Award has had wonderful recipients in the past and I expect this one to be every bit as good as the rest. A story set in a home for teenagers with disabilities, this sounds simply amazing.

If you'd like to see the marvelous goodies in other people's mailboxes, make sure to visit I totally paused 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. Good Kings, Bad Kings sounds like an eye opener. Enjoy the books.

  2. ENJOY your books....a not-full mailbox is a blessing in disguise even though I never do catch up.

    Have a great week.

  3. Both sound really good, definitely adding Good Kings Bad Kings to my list!

  4. I have six sisters - we could probably write a few books ;-) Have a great week!

  5. I just have a younger brother, but I've always wanted a sister. For that reason, I can't help but be intrigued by The Sister Season.


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.
