Mailbox Monday ~ February 24th

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.


Nothing in my mailbox but I did receive a few audiobook downloads over the last couple of weeks:

New Arivals

From Penguin Audio:

Influx by Daniel SuarezArchetype by M.D. Waters

Influx by Daniel Suarez
Are smart phones really humanity’s most significant innovation since the moon landings? Or can something else explain why the bold visions of the 20th century–fusion power, genetic enhancements, artificial intelligence, cures for common disease, extended human life, and a host of other world-changing advances–have remained beyond our grasp? Why has the high-tech future that seemed imminent in the 1960’s failed to arrive? Perhaps it did arrive…but only for a select few.

Archetype by M.D. Waters
Emma wakes in a hospital, with no memory of what came before. Her husband, Declan, a powerful, seductive man, provides her with new memories, but her dreams contradict his stories, showing her a past life she can’t believe possible: memories of war, of a camp where girls are trained to be wives, of love for another man.

From Random House Audio:

One More Thing by B.J. NovakWake by Anna Hope

One More Thing by B.J. Novak
Across a dazzling range of subjects, themes, tones, and narrative voices, Novak’s assured prose and expansive imagination introduce readers to people, places, and premises that are hilarious, insightful, provocative, and moving-often at the same time.

Wake by Anna Hope
Anna Hope’s brilliant debut unfolds over the course of five days, as three women must deal with the aftershocks of World War I and its impact on the men in their lives.

    I absolutely adored Wake, definitely one of my favourites of the year. I am currently reading a book set in India – The Forgotten Daughter by Renita D’Silva 🙂

    Influx looks a little scary!

    Oh wow, both Influx and Archetype sound really good! I haven’t listened to any audiobooks in ages! Do you get those to review or for yourself? I love listening to them while I cook 🙂
    Thanks for sharing 🙂 Hope you have a good week

      These are review copies. If you’re looking for audio books to review try Audiobook Jukebox. They have a selection of audiobooks that you can request for review.


  7. I want to read Wake, too. Hope you enjoy it. Right now I’m reading a book on self-publishing.

    Enjoy your new audiobooks, Leslie! Archetype interests me at this moment.

    I’ve heard such good things about One More Thing that I’m thinking of using and Audible credit. Have a good week!

    enjoy your books, Wake looks like something I would read.

    I like your cover of Wake. The Aussie one is not quite as nice. Enjoy!

    Enjoy your books!

    Nice mailbox. I read WAKE…I wasn’t that impressed. Love the cover, though.

    ENJOY your week.
