Mailbox Monday ~ January 27th

Cardinal MailboxWelcome to Mailbox Monday, created by Marcia of To Be Continued, a place where readers share the books that came in their mailbox during the last week.

After several years of being on tour with different blogs as the monthly host, the Mailbox Monday Blog is now the permanent home for the meme.

Last week I received a couple of audiobook CDs and a few audio downloads.

New Arrivals

In the Blood by Lisa Unger
Lana will do anything to hide the truth, but it might not be enough to keep her ominous secrets buried: someone else knows about Lana’s lies. And he’s dying to tell.

Your Life Calling by Jane Pauley
In this inspirational book, beloved broadcast journalist Jane Pauley helps people in the middle of their lives successfully navigate a“reinvention” phase and build a positive, powerful future.

Our Mathematical Universe by Max Tegmark
Max Tegmark leads us on an astonishing journey through past, present and future, and through the physics, astronomy and mathematics that are the foundation of his work, most particularly his hypothesis that our physical reality is a mathematical structure and his theory of the ultimate multiverse.


The Crane Wife by Patrick NessWin a copy of The Crane Wife by Patrick Ness:

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.

    I Shall Be Near to You looks really interesting – hoping it will be released here. I enjoy Civil War books, it’s an interesting time period.

    I’d like the Jane Pauley book – I always liked her and thought she seemed very down to earth. enjoy

      I’ve always been a fan of hers and I could use some inspiration and reinvention right now.

    I want to read I Shall Be Near to You. I’m a Civil War buff. Actually, one of the books I received last week is on the Reconstruction era. I don’t have enough audio books, but I would really like to change that.

    Hope you’ll visit me today at

    Just finished an ARC for Harlan Coben’s latest, Missing You. It’s due in stores on March 18. I’ve read all of his adult novels (he has 2 YA), and this is one of his best. Highly recommended.
    I’m now 135 pages into Songs of Will Frost by Jamie Ford, author of the outstanding Hotel on the Corner of Bitter and Sweet. This one is excellent too. He’s just a flat-out good author.

      I have both of those Jamie Ford books on my shelf and haven’t read either of them yet. I must get to them soon!
