Mailbox Monday ~ February 16th

WinterCardinalMailbox-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.

Just when I start to get caught up, I lose two days with a nasty stomach virus. And the irony of it – I’m pretty sure I picked it up at the Doctor’s Office. Ah well, I’m all better now. And a few new books showed up in the mail to cheer me up.

New Arrivals


A Small Indiscretion by Jan Ellison from LibrayThing.
With the brilliant pacing and emotional precision that won Jan Ellison an O. Henry Prize for her first published story, A Small Indiscretion announces a major new voice in suspense fiction as it unfolds a story of denial, obsession, love, forgiveness—and one woman’s reckoning with her own fateful mistakes.

Ask the Dark by Henry Turner from Clarion Books.
Billy Zeets has a story to tell. About being a vandal and petty thief. About missing boys and an elusive killer. And about what happens if a boy who breaks all the rules is the only person who can piece together the truth.


Ella by Mallory Kasdan from Tandem Literary and Penguin Books.
This is ELLA. She is six years old. She lives at the Local Hotel. She has a nanny called Manny. He has tattoos for sleeves and he might go in with some guys to buy a grilled cheese truck.

If Ella and Kay Thompson’s Eloise got together for a play date, they would have a very good time indeed.

Less Medicine, More Health by H. Gilbert Welch from LibrayThing.
The author of the highly acclaimed Overdiagnosed describes seven widespread assumptions that encourage excessive, often ineffective, and sometimes harmful medical care.

How was your week?

    Less Medicine, More Health looks interesting – it could be a thoughtful read (I have a love-hate relationship with medical books – too sensationalist and they annoy me!)
    A Small Indiscretion looks like a good, thrilling read too.

    Ask The Dark looks good! And Ella has an amazing cover! Enjoy!

    So sorry about your stomach bug. Yes, I think a doctor’s office is a good way to pick up a bunch of things. I’ve been putting of a regular visit because I didn’t want to be around people with the flu.

    I have A SMALL INDISCRETION on my list. Will be interested in what you think if you read it.

    Ugh, that’s part of why I hate going to the doctor’s office. I got Ella too – it’s cute but I’m not sure who it’s geared to. Enjoy your new books!

    I am curious about Ask the Dark…and I hope you enjoy A Small Indiscretion; I did.

    Have a great week, and here are MY WEEKLY UPDATES

    My daughter and I are really looking forward to reading Ella

    Sorry to hear you’ve been sick- the doctor’s offices make me nervous for just that reason! A Small Indiscretion looks really good to me. Can’t wait to hear what you think of it! Enjoy all your new books 🙂

    That stomach bug is going around my area too. My daughter and one year old granddaughter had it over the weekend. I’m glad you’re feeling better now. Less Medicine, More Health sounds interesting.

    Less Medicine More Health might go along with the documentary I just watched, Bought. You can watch it free online until March 5.
