Mailbox Monday ~ December 30th

NoelMailboxMailbox 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 December host is Rose City Reader.

Beginning in January the Mailbox Monday blog will be the permanent home for the meme.

New Arrivals


Red Moon by Benjamin Percy from Grand Central Publishing
They live among us. They are our neighbors, our mothers, our lovers. They change. When government agents kick down Claire Forrester’s front door and murder her parents, Claire realizes just how different she is.

The Crane Wife by Patrick Ness from Penguin
A magical novel, based on a Japanese folk tale, that imagines how the life of a broken-hearted man is transformed when he rescues an injured white crane that has landed in his backyard.

The Outcasts by Kathleen Kent, a win from Bloggers Recommend
A taut, thrilling adventure story about buried treasure, a manhunt, and a woman determined to make a new life for herself in the old west.

Bold: A Cookbook of Big Flavors and Hearty Portions from Workman
Bold brings together the beloved American tradition of delicious, plate-filling meals with the lively global flavors that infuse our culture and cuisine.

    What a nice and eclectic mix of books! I haven’t read anything by Patrick Ness…yet, but this one does look tempting. And The Outcasts has such a lovely cover and blurb. Enjoy!

    I’d love to read The Crane Wife – Patrick Ness is so talented! Enjoy your new books!

    Oh, doesn’t that pile of books look great! I hope you have great fun reading these. I got two new books today (for review) and I can’t wait to read them (but they do need to wait!).

    These look great Leslie – The Crane Wife is one I’ve been considering.

    I want to read The Crane Wife too. Red Moon made its way to my house as well. Happy New Year.

    I don’t read a lot of books that take place in Japan, but always seem to enjoy the ones I do, so for that reason I can’t help but be drawn to The Crane Wife.

    Red Moon was a surprise arrival in my mailbox. I almost never receive unexpected books. Sad to say it’s not a genre I enjoy so I may pass it on to one of my nieces. I’ll watch for your review before I let it go though 😉
