Mailbox Monday ~ June 17th

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

Summer is here, my favorite time of the year. I spend as much time as I can outdoors so this week I took my books outside for a photo shoot by the garden. Here’s what arrived at my house last week:

Print Books:


The Widow Waltz by Sally Koslow from Viking.
The Widow Waltz explores in a profound way the bonds between mothers and daughters, belligerent siblings, skittish lovers, and bitter rivals as they discover the power of forgiveness, and healing, all while asking, “What is family, really?”

The Affairs of Others by Amy Grace Loyd from Picador
A mesmerizing debut novel about a young woman, haunted by loss, who rediscovers passion and possibility when she’s drawn into the tangled lives of her neighbors.



All from Penguin Audio:

Gameboard of the Gods (Age of X #1) by Richelle Mead
In a futuristic world nearly destroyed by religious extremists, Justin March lives in exile after failing in his job as an investigator of religious groups and supernatural claims.

The Boys in the Boat by Daniel James Brown
Daniel James Brown’s robust book tells the story of the University of Washington’s 1936 eight-oar crew and their epic quest for an Olympic gold medal, a team that transformed the sport and grabbed the attention of millions of Americans.

Zero Hour (NUMA Files #11) by Clive Cussler, Graham Brown
It is called zero point energy, and it really exists—a state of energy contained in all matter everywhere, and thus all but unlimited. Nobody has ever found a way to tap into it, however—until one scientist discovers a way.

    I keep seeing The Widow Waltz on blogs, and do think it’s one I’d really enjoy.

    I’ve read Sally Koslow’s other novels and enjoyed them, so I’m curious about The Widow Waltz. Happy reading!
