Mailbox Monday ~ July 8th

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

Here’s what arrived last week.

Print Books:


The Returned by Jason Mott from Harlequin MIRA
Jacob was time out of sync, time more perfect than it had been. He was life the way it was supposed to be all those years ago. That’s what all the Returned were.

Necessary Lies by Diane Chamberlain from St. Martin’s Press
Bestselling author Diane Chamberlain delivers a breakout book about a small southern town fifty years ago, and the darkest—and most hopeful—places in the human heart.


Shorecliff by Ursula DeYoung from Little, Brown
Spending the summer of 1928 in a big house on the Maine coast with his 10 older cousins and a gaggle of aunts and uncles seems like a dream come true to lonely 13-year-old Richard.

Goat Mountain by David Vann from Harper
In David Vann’s searing novel Goat Mountain, an 11-year-old boy at his family’s annual deer hunt is eager to make his first kill. His father discovers a poacher on the land, a 640-acre ranch in Northern California, and shows him to the boy through the scope of his rifle. With this simple gesture, tragedy erupts, shattering lives irrevocably.

    I can’t wait to read The Returned – a September release here. Shorecliff also looks great (Lucy and I think alike!) Happy reading 🙂

    Love the look of The Returned…and I’m eagerly awaiting my copy of Necessary Lies. Thanks for sharing, and have a great week! Here’s MY SUNDAY UPDATES/MAILBOX MONDAY POST

    I am really excited about The Returned.


  8. Elizabeth / Jul 8 2013 8:01 am

    They all look good.

    THE RETURNED should be a good book for discussion.

    Necessary Lies intrigues me, but they all look good. I hope you love them!

    Wonderful mailbox 🙂 I have The Returned on tap and I’m very much looking forward to it 🙂

    This one, Shorecliff by Ursula DeYoung, has me intrigued!


  14. Leeswammes / Jul 8 2013 2:38 pm

    I have an e-copy of The Returned which I’m planning to read later this month, and I also requested the new David Vann (yay!) book, but Harper’s books obviously take a little longer to reach me than you. Looking forward to these books.

    Have a good week!


  15. harvee / Jul 9 2013 6:30 am

    I have two of your books, Goat Mountain and Necessary Lies. Shorecliff looks very good.


  16. Anna (Diary of an Eccentric) / Jul 9 2013 8:38 pm

    I’m really curious about The Returned. Enjoy your new books!


  17. bethbookaholicmom / Jul 10 2013 10:37 am

    I received Necessary Lies too. All of your books look very interesting! Goat Mountain and The Returned have both caught my eye!

    Your books are always so pretty! I still haven’t read Chamberlain even though she’s been on my shelves for years.


Comment are welcome. Thanks for stopping by.
