Mailbox Monday ~ December 29th
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.
The last Monday of the year! That sure went fast. Hope everyone is having a good holiday week.
I received a couple of new books for review, but none as Christmas gifts. Everyone thinks I have more than enough books, but really, can you have too many books?
Fiercombe Manor by Kate Riordan from Harper.
In this haunting and richly imagined dual-narrative tale that echoes the eerie mystery of Rebecca and The Little Stranger, two women of very different eras are united by the secrets hidden within the walls of an English manor house.
Sapiens: A Brief History of Humankind by Yuval Noah Harari from Harper.
How did Homo sapiens conquer Earth? * What befell the other human species? * When did money, states and religion appear, and why? * How did science and capitalism become the dominant creeds of the modern era? * Does history have a direction? * Is there justice in history? * Did people become happier as history unfolded? * And what are the chances that Homo sapiens will still be around in a hundred years?
How was your week?
