Monday Mailbox

An embarrassment of riches for me This past week's mailbox arrivals:

About a Girl by Lindsey Kelk came from Harper and TLC Book Tours for a blog tour.

This tale of a woman who takes on a persona not her own when her own life is in the dumper only to find herself in over her head sounds like a lot of fun.

Head Case by Cole Cohen came from Henry Holt and LibraryThing Early Reviewers.

I thoroughly enjoy memoirs about unique situations and this one about a woman who looks for answers to her struggle with learning disabilities and finds that there's a hole in her brain sounds like a fascinating one.

The Year My Mother Came Back by Alice Eve Cohen came from Algonquin.

A memoir about a very difficult year in Cohen's life, one which brings her mother, dead for thirty years back to her, this really appeals to me.

My Chinese-America by Allen Gee came from Santa Fe Writers Project and Poetic Book Tours for a blog tour.

I did an independent study on Asian-American literature way back in graduate school after taking a fascinating class in college so this collection of essays should bring me back to that time and offer me a window into how the writing about being Asian-American has changed in the past twenty years. I am terribly curious and can't wait to dive in and see.

If you'd like to see the marvelous goodies in other people's mailboxes, make sure to visit Mailbox Monday and have fun seeing how we are all doing our part to keep the USPS and delivery services viable.


  1. So glad to hear that My Chinese-America arrived safely. I cannot wait to see what everyone thinks about it. I love books about immigrants and different cultures

  2. Nice mailbox.

    The Year My Mother Came Back should be good.

    ENJOY your books and your reading week.
