Mailbox Monday ~ July 1st

Sunflower-Butterfly-MailboxMailbox 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 July host is Tasha @ Book Obsessed

Last week I received a mix of print and audio books. I’m hoping for some sunny days this month so I can spend some of my reading time out on the deck. The plants love the rain but my books aren’t too crazy about it!

Print Books:


RASL by Jeff Smith from Cartoon Books.
A stark, gritty sci-fi series about a dimension-jumping art thief, a man who races through space and time searching for his next big score and trying to escape his past.

Mrs. Poe by Lynn Cullen from Gallery Books.
A vivid and compelling novel about a woman who becomes entangled in an affair with Edgar Allan Poe—at the same time she becomes the unwilling confidante of his much-younger wife.

Songs of Willow Frost by Jamie Ford from Ballantine Books.
Set against the backdrop of Depression-era Seattle, Songs of Willow Frost is a powerful tale of two souls—a boy with dreams for his future and a woman escaping her haunted past—both seeking love, hope, and forgiveness.


Tom's River by Dan FaginLexicon by Max BarryYonahlossee Riding Camp by Anton Disclafani

Toms River by Dan Fagin from Kathy @ Bermudaonion’s Weblog. Thanks Kathy!
A Small Town, a Cancer Cluster, and the Epic Quest to Expose Pollution’s Hidden Consequences.

Lexicon by Max Barry from Penguin Audio.
A brilliant thriller that traverses very modern questions of privacy, identity, and the rising obsession of data-collection, connecting them to centuries-old ideas about the power of language and coercion.

The Yonahlossee Riding Camp for Girls by Anton DiSclafani from Penguin Audio.
1930s America, southern high society: Part love story, part coming-of-age novel, this is the moving, raw and exquisitely vivid story of an uncommon girl navigating a treacherous road to womanhood.

    Mrs. Poe has grabbed my eye…and also Songs of Willow Frost. The Seattle setting was the key for me.

    Thanks for sharing…and here’s MY MONDAY READING POST

    The Yonahlossee audio looks so good, doesn’t it? Mrs. Poe sounds intriguing too. Enjoy!
