Monday Mailbox

This week's mailbox arrivals:

Mister Owita's Guide to Gardening by Carol Wall came from LibraryThing Early Reviewers.

A memoir about a white woman who hired an African man to tend her yard and ended up with a friend, this sounds lovely.

Bread and Butter by Michelle Wildgen came from Doubleday.

A novel about food and family, rivalry and change, this one sounds completely delicious.

Animal Madness by Laurel Braitman came from Simon and Schuster.

How fascinating to look into the ways we try to cure animals of the same sorts of mental illnesses we get.

The Dead Wife's Handbook by Hannah Beckerman came from Penguin.

A novel about a woman who died a year ago and finds that she can't let go of the family she left behind, even if it is painful to see them moving on without her, this sounds emotional and poignant and heart breaking but also good.

Delicious by Ruth Reichl came from Random House and TLC Book Tours for a blog tour.

I've drooled over her memoirs so I am anxious to see what she does with a novel.

  4. Animal Madness sounds very interesting. Nice week in books!

  5. There's several of these I think I'd enjoy, but Delicious and Bread and Butter are probably top of that list. Or maybe I'm just hungry. Ha!

    ENJOY your week.

I love to hear what you think, especially so I know I'm not just whistling into the wind here at my computer.
