Monday Mailbox

It's a nice thing to come home to book mail after being away, even for a week.  This past week's mailbox arrivals:

In Every Moment We Are Still Alive by Tom Malmquist came from me just because.

A gut wrenching novel about a man whose partner is diagnosed with an aggressive and terrible illness while pregnant with their child and how he must handle the terror and bureaucracy both of the hospital and the government after their daughter's premature birth.

The Home for Unwanted Girls by Joanna Goodman came from me just because.

A novel based on true and horrifying history where a young girl gives up her baby for adoption but the child is raised in a psychiatric hospital because they get more money than orphanages. It sounds heartbreaking and crazy (no pun intended).

Inlaws and Outlaws by Kate Fulford came from me just because.

A novel about a feud over a man: his mother doesn't like his girlfriend and will go to any lengths to make sure said girlfriend out of her son's life. Delicious sounding, no?

The Paris Wedding by Charlotte Nash came from William Morrow and TLC Book Tours for a blog tour.

A woman agrees to go to Paris, all expenses paid, to attend her ex-boyfriend's wedding.  Quite the set-up, right? I can't wait!

A View of the Empire at Sunset by Caryl Phillips came from FSG.

A novelization of Jean Rhys' life? Oh yes, please!!!

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.

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