Mailbox Monday ~ June 3rd

GerberaDaisyMailboxMailbox 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 June host is Bellezza @ Dolce Bellezza

It’s June already and hopefully summer is now here to stay. This is my favorite month to read while sitting outside on the deck. No bugs yet and not too hot. Here’s what arrived last week, two print and two audiobooks:

For review from Doubleday:

WifeMaidMistressThe Wife, the Maid, and the Mistress
by Ariel Lawhon

A tantalizing reimagining of a scandalous mystery that rocked the nation in 1930-Justice Joseph Crater’s infamous disappearance-as seen through the eyes of the three women who knew him best.

On a sultry summer night, as rumors circulate about the judge’s involvement in wide-scale political corruption, the Honorable Joseph Crater steps into a cab and disappears without a trace. Or does he? After 39 years of necessary duplicity, Stella Crater is finally ready to reveal what she knows. more

For review from Ecco:

The Son by Philipp MeyerThe Son
by Philipp Meyer

Part epic of Texas, part classic coming-of-age story, part unflinching portrait of the bloody price of power, The Son is an utterly transporting novel that maps the legacy of violence in the American West through the lives of the McCulloughs, an ambitious family as resilient and dangerous as the land they claim.

Spring, 1849. The first male child born in the newly established Republic of Texas, Eli McCullough is thirteen years old when a marauding band of Comanches storms his homestead and brutally murders … more
For review from AudioGo and Audiobook Jukebox:

HenOfTheWoodsHen of the Woods & Other Wild Foods and Medicines
by Steve Brill

A lively and entertaining tour through the wild with Steve Brill as he shares tips on foraging in densely populated areas like New York’s Central Park and rural areas throughout New England. We will follow the seasons: wild ramps in the spring, the first mushrooms of summer, and in autumn, wild edible berries in Central Park—more than you’ll find at your local supermarket; and we haven’t even mentioned wild nuts yet (chestnuts, walnuts, hazelnuts!).
For review from Blackstone Audio and Audiobook Jukebox:

Mission To Mars by Buzz AldrinMission To Mars
by Buzz Aldrin

Legendary “space statesman” Buzz Aldrin speaks out as a vital advocate for the continuing quest to push the boundaries of the universe as we know it. As a pioneering astronaut who set foot on the moon during mankind’s first landing with Apollo 11 and an aerospace engineer who designed an orbital rendezvous technique critical to future planetary landings Aldrin has a vision, and in Mission to Marshe plots out the path he proposes, one that will take humans to Mars by 2035.

    There was lots of buzz surrounding The Son at BEA – I hope it’s as good as it sounds.

    I received The Wife, the Maid and the Mistress as well. The premise sounds good. I’ve heard such good things about The Son. I hope you love it 🙂

    I’m sorry that the comment I thought I left didn’t appear. (I shouldn’t do that on my iPad, it never seems to work as well as with a ‘real’ computer.) I wanted to say thanks for stopping by my Mailbox, and also The Last Camellia by Sarah Jio looks good. I really enjoyed her first book.


  10. Anna (Diary of an Eccentric) / Jun 4 2013 7:44 pm

    Can’t wait for your thoughts on The Wife, The Maid, and The Mistress. I’m seeing that book in a lot of mailboxes this week. Happy reading!


Comment are welcome. Thanks for stopping by.
