Mailbox Monday ~ February 16th
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.
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.
