Mailbox Monday ~ September 8th

Sunflower-Butterfly-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.

Only one book this week but it looks quite interesting. What I would describe as literary science fiction.

New Arrivals


The Book of Strange New Things by Michel Faber from Hogarth.
Peter-devoted pastor, dedicated missionary, and loving husband to his wife, Bea-has just accepted a demanding and perilous new job. He’s to travel to a new planet, Oasis, to work for a mysterious corporation called USIC. He’s tasked with reaching out to the indigenous race, to make sure they are as peaceful as they seem.

How was your week?
