Monday Mailbox

I was off gallivanting around New Orleans this weekend and having myself a big old time. In the meantime, I had a lot of great looking books landing on my doorstep. This week's mailbox arrivals:

The Year She Left Us by Kathryn Ma came from Harper and TLC Book Tours for a blog tour.

I love stories about people who immigrate to the US and how they and their families adjust so this tale of three generations of Chinese American women, from the grandmother who first came to this country to escape Mao's Revolution to the teenaged granddaughter who was adopted from China, should be fascinating.

We Are Not Ourselves by Matthew Thomas came from Simon and Schuster.

What happens when the American Dream is not everyone's dream? I can't wait to read this novel about a family where one person drives the upward mobility she so wants while the other is reluctant to chase that golden ring.

We Are Called to Rise by Laura McBride came from Simon and Schuster.

A novel set in Las Vegas, but the Las Vegas that tourists don't visit, this looks like a fantastic novel.

Helena Rubenstein by Michele Fitoussi came from Gallic and Meryl Zegarek PR.

Make-up and fashion are not my things at all but I am curious about a woman to whom these were driving forces.

The One and Only by Emily Giffin came from Ballantine Books and Book Sparks PR for a blog tour.

I've already reviewed this one here.

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