Mailbox Monday ~ February 17th

WinterCardinalMailbox-smlWelcome 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.

With all the snow we’ve had this season I’m amazed that the mail service and UPS can keep deliveries on schedule, but they do. I received three print books and one audiobook last week. I try to keep the snow cleared from my walkways but I’m running out of places to put it.

A bright spot in this dreary winter has a been a family of cardinals that have taken a liking to my backyard, although I’m sure the safflower seed and heated water keep them happy.

New Arivals


The Remedy by Thomas Goetz from Gotham Books.
The riveting history of tuberculosis, the world’s most lethal disease, the two men whose lives it tragically intertwined, and the birth of medical science.

Notorious by Allison Brennan from Minotaur Books.
A nationally renowned investigative reporter with her own TV show and a tough-as-nails reputation, Maxine Revere tackles cold cases from across the country and every walk of life. But the one unsolved murder that still haunts her is a case from her own past.


The Book of You by Claire Kendal from Harper.
A mesmerizing tale of psychological suspense about a woman who must fight to escape an expert manipulator determined to possess her, Claire Kendal’s debut novel is a sophisticated and disturbing portrait of compulsion, control, and terror.

The Future of the Mind by Michio Kaku from Random House Audio.
The Future of the Mind gives us an authoritative and compelling look at the astonishing research being done in top laboratories around the world—all based on the latest advancements in neuroscience and physics.

    My mail carrier is a high school friend as well as a fellow reader. She loves to find out what books I received! The Allison Brennan is one I’ll be looking forward to.
