Mailbox Monday ~ November 11th

FlagMailbox-smlMailbox 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. Currently on tour, it is hosted by a different blog each month.

The November host is Crystal @ I totally paused!.

Some new print books arrived last week. Also, I’ll be hosting a giveaway in the upcoming weeks for a copy of Sweet Nothings for a reader with a US address. And speaking of giveaways, be sure to check out the Literary Giveaway Blog Hop. It runs through Wednesday of this week.

New Arrivals


The Good Luck of Right Now by Matthew Quick from Harper.
For thirty-eight years, Bartholomew Neil has lived with his mother. When she gets sick and dies, he has no idea how to be on his own. But how does a man whose whole life has been grounded in his mom, Saturday mass, and the library learn how to fly?

The Night Guest by Fiona McFarlane from Amazon Vine.
A tale that soars above its own suspense to tell us, with exceptional grace and beauty, about aging, love, trust, dependence, and fear; about processes of colonization; and about things (and people) in places they shouldn’t be.

The Last Enchantments by Charles Finch from St. Martin’s Press.
A young American embarks on a year at Oxford and has an impassioned affair that will change his life forever.

Sweet Nothings by Janis Thomas from FSB Media.
When Ruby McMillan’s husband announces one morning that he’s dumping her for another woman, she’s unable to decide which indignity stings the most: the dissolution of their eighteen-year marriage or the deflation of her white-chocolate soufflé with raspberry Grand Marnier sauce.
