Mailbox Monday ~ March 17th

St.Pats2-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.

Last week was hectic – lots of running around and a couple of temp jobs didn’t leave much time for writing or visiting blogs, but this week I should be able to get caught up. Here’s what showed up in my mailbox last week:

New Arivals


The Year She Left Us by Kathryn Ma from Harper.
From the winner of the 2009 Iowa Short Fiction Prize—comes the extraordinary, unexpected debut tale of three generations of Chinese-American women in a San Francisco family who must confront their past and carve out a future.

Glitter and Glue by Kelly Corrigan from Random House.
From the author of “The Middle Place” comes a new memoir that examines the bond—sometimes nourishing, sometimes exasperating, occasionally divine—between mothers and daughters.

Murder of CrowsMr Owita's Guide To Guardening

Murder of Crows by Anne Bishop
Return to New York Times best-selling author Anne Bishop’s “phenomenal” (Urban Fantasy Investigations) world of the Others – where supernatural entities and humans struggle to co-exist, and one woman has begun to change all the rules.

Mister Owita’s Guide to Gardening by Carol Wall
The true story of a unique friendship between two people who had nothing-and ultimately everything-in common. Though they are seemingly quite different, a caring bond grows between them. But they both hold long-buried secrets that, when revealed, will cement their friendship forever.

New Giveaway

Frangipani Hotel

Win a copy of The Frangipani Hotel by Violet Kupersmith:

Based on traditional Vietnamese folk tales told to Kupersmith by her grandmother, these fantastical, chilling, and thoroughly contemporary stories are a boldly original exploration of Vietnamese culture, addressing both the immigrant experience and the lives of those who remained behind.

Fill out the form on my review post. US addresses only by midnight 3/29.
