Mailbox Monday

RobinMailboxMailbox Monday was created by The Printed Page. It is the gathering place for readers to share the books that came into their home last week.

Mailbox Monday is currently on tour, hosted by a different blog each month. The April host is Mari @ MariReads
Another good week for audiobooks which will be nice for summer since I like to be out in the garden… if the warm weather ever gets here, that is.

A win from Peeking Between the Pages:

Book of Lost Fragrances by M.J. RoseThe Book of Lost Fragrances
by M.J. Rose

The Reincarnationist, Book 4. A sweeping and suspenseful tale of secrets, intrigue, and lovers separated by time, all connected through the mystical qualities of a perfume created in the days of Cleopatra—and lost for 2,000 years. more

For review from Blackstone Audio:

Parrots Prove Deadly by Clea SimonParrots Prove Deadly
by Clea Simon

When bad-girl animal psychic Pru Marlowe is called in to retrain a foulmouthed African gray after its owner’s death, she can’t help hearing the parrot’s words as a replay of a murder scene. But the doctor on call scoffs at the idea, and the heirs just want their late mother’s pet to quit cursing. The only other possible witnesses being an evasive aide, a blind neighbor, and a single-minded service dog, Pru is stuck with what may be a featherbrained theory, or is it really?

For review from Harper Audio:

Reconstructing Amelia by Kimberly McCreightReconstructing Amelia
by Kimberly McCreight

A stunning debut novel in which a single mother reconstructs her teenaged daughter’s life, sifting through her emails, texts, and social media to piece together the shocking truth about the last days of her life. Told in alternating voices, Reconstructing Amelia is a story of secrets and lies, of love and betrayal, of trusted friends and vicious bullies. It’s about how well a parent ever really knows a child and how far one mother will go to vindicate the memory of a daughter whose life she could not save.

For review from Penguin Audio:

Cooked by Michael PollanUnintended Consequences by Stuart WoodsSafe Journey by Julia Cameron

Cooked by Michael Pollan. In Cooked, Michael Pollan explores the previously uncharted territory of his own kitchen. Here, he discovers the enduring power of the four classical elements—fire, water, air, and earth—to transform the stuff of nature into delicious things to eat and drink.

Unintended Consequences by Stuart Woods. Stone Barrington #26. When he travels to Europe under highly unusual circumstances, Stone finds himself at the center of a mystery that is, even by his standards, most peculiar.

Safe Jouorney by Julia Cameron. A slim little volume that will provide a world of comfort and inspiration for readers as they navigate life’s journeys.

    Just finished The House at Tyneford, by Natasha Solomons, for book club. It was very good. Will be starting The Wanting by Michael Lavigne. His 1st book, Not Me, was really good.

    Parrots Prove Deadly is an interesting concept. I don’t know if I could ever read it though, I’d probably laugh all the time. My brother had a big parrot and he had it in the room where my mom and I would do fittings (we were dressmakers), the bird whistled at every woman. Sounded almost disgusting, if you didn’t know it was a bird. No one taught him that,.. so you see Enjoy!
