Mailbox Monday ~ December 8th

WinterBirdsMailbox-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.


Another quiet week on the blog. A nasty cold pretty much wiped out most of my energy for the week, so not much got done. Thankfully, it’s almost gone now. Here’s what arrived in my mailbox…

New Arrivals


Lillian on Life by Alison Jean Lester from Putnam.
Life and love lessons as told by sassy narrator Lillian as she looks back in this brilliantly written, bold debut. Lillian, a single, well-traveled woman of a certain age, wakes up next to her married lover and looks back at her life. It’s not at all the life she expected.

God Loves Haiti by Dimitry Elias Leger from Harper.
A story of romance, politics, and religion that traces the fates of three lovers in Port-au-Prince, Haiti, and the challenges they face readjusting to life after an earthquake devastates their city.

How was your week?
