Monday Mailbox

Once again I was out of town (it's been a slingshot sort of summer for me) and I came home to a delicious looking stack of books. Welcome home to me! This past week's mailbox arrivals:

Fishbowl by Bradley Somer came from St. Martin's Press.

A goldfish decides to jump out of his bowl and as he plummets 27 stories toward the street, he gets a view into all the apartments he passes. Sounds quirky and fun, no?!

When the Moon Is Low by Nadia Hashimi came from William Morrow and TLC Book Tours for a blog tour.

I aalways enjoy family stories and this one about Afghan refugees looks heartbreaking.

The Race For Paris by Meg Waite Clayton came from Harper and TLC Book Tours for a blog tour..

The fictionalized tale of female journalists and a photographer who wanted to to be the first to enter Paris with the liberating Allies during WWII, this story of impressive women overcoming the societal road blocks thrown up at them should be fantastic.

White Dresses by Mary Pflum Peterson came from William Morrow and TLC Book Tours for a blog tour.

Hoarding is a terrible but fascinating obsession so this memoir really intrigues me.

Mrs. Sinclair's Suitcase by Louise Walters came from Putnam.

A book about a young woman who collects the ephemera found in books is just about as appealing as it gets for me.

If you want 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. I can't wait to read The Race for Paris and Mrs. Sinclair's Suitcase. Happy reading!

  2. I have seen a few bloggers with the same books. I guess I am missing something, I guess I need to put these books on my TBR! I will be back for your reviews of these books.

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.
