Mailbox Monday ~ December 29th

HolidayCardinal-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.


 
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?

New Arrivals

Dec29Books_151241

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?

    You can never have too many books. Remind someone of that when they want to borrow some 😉

    People don’t know if I’ve read a book or not so they don’t give any to me. I love to get gift cards though 🙂 I hope you enjoy both of your new books.

    Carl can never figure out what books to buy me so I never get any for gifts. I hope you love both of your new books.
