Monday Mailbox

Very different books in the mailbox this week. Sort of encapsulates my eclectic range. They're just begging to be tucked into the vacation luggage! This past week's mailbox arrivals:

Best Kept Secret by Amy Hatvany came from Washington Square Press.
A mother who drinks too much but thinks no one knows except her, this will likely be an unflinchingly tough read but it sounds really good.

What Language Is by John McWhorter came from Gotham Books thanks to Lisa at TLC Book Tours.
I've always been fascinated by language so this linguistic journey through languages around the globe promises to be a delight.

Triangles by Ellen Hopkins came from Atria Books.
Novels in verse are not terribly common. I think I've only ever read two before (one a YA and one a classic) so I am quite curious to experience a contemporary novel written this way.

The Night Train by Clyde Edgerton came from Little Brown.
I love Clyde Edgerton. I even have a bit of a crush on him after hearing him read and perform. I can't begin to explain how exciting it is to get my hands on his newest book, this one about boys and music and racial tensions and the South.

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