Monday Mailbox

I had a surprisingly busy mailbox again this week.  Not that I'm complaining!  I'd never complain about something so wonderful.  This past week's mailbox arrivals:

Beautiful Affliction by Lene Fogelberg came from Book Sparks PR for a blog tour.

A memoir about a woman who is convinced she's dying but can't get doctors to believe her is finally diagnosed in the last stages of fatal congenital heart disease, this sounds terrifying and amazing all at once.

Clutch by Lisa Becker came from me for me.

Chick lit that uses types of purses to describe men? This sounds like pure, unadulterated fun.

Mr. Putter and Tabby Turn the Pages by Cynthia Rylant and Arthur Howard came from me for me.

If you have little people in the house, you must read Mr. Putter and Tabby. Even if you don't, you'll be charmed. When I figured out what this slight padded envelope contained, my 13 year old son and 17 year old daughter fought each other to get to read it first. (I really, really, really wanted to be first but I was being the grown-up.  Sometimes it stinks to be the grown-up.)

Whistling Women by Kelly Romo came from TLC Book Tours for a blog tour.

Estranged sisters, secrets, the World's Fair, a nudist colony. What else could one want in a novel?

The Things We Keep by Sally Hepworth came from St. Martin's Press.

A novel about the only two young inhabitants of an assisted living center falling in love and then being separated, this sounds poignant and beautiful.

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. Beautiful Affliction does sound terrifying. My aunt went through something similar with cancer over 40 years ago and I'd hope we were kind of past that.

  2. Beautiful Affliction sounds good but scary.

    Whistling Women is right up my alley.

    The Things We Keep is one I received. Looking forward to reading it.

    Have a wonderful week.

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.
