Mailbox Monday ~ March 2nd

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.

I had a busy week in new books – lots of good reading ahead.

    Ah, looking forward to reading WHERE THEY FOUND HER. I read that author’s previous book, RECONSTRUCTING AMELIA last year and liked it pretty well. Have a good week. Don’t think you’ll run out of book! 😉

    Where They Found Her and Diamond Head both appeal to me. Enjoy your new books!

    Oh, you got some good ones! I am eager to read Where They Found Her…and I am curious about The Daddy Diaries. Enjoy!

    I read dead wake a couple of weeks ago. Read all of this. Don’t skip, even if you suspect that 1) some paragraphs exist simply because Larson didn’t want to waste a single bit of the research he did for DEAD WAKE and 2) those paragraphs won’t contribute to your overall understanding of the book. Your suspicions would be wrong. I had those suspicions but, luckily, just in case, didn’t skip.

    I was ashamed to say but no longer am because Larson, himself, admits the same: I always thought that the U.S. entered World War I immediately after the Germans torpedoed and sank the “Lusitania.” Larson lays out the truth, beginning with background. That can form the basis for educated guesses about what happened later and why.

    For me, the biggest mysteries of this story are what the English knew ahead of time, why they didn’t notify the captain of the “Lusitania” when they knew it, and why they continued to lie about it. Was this an effort to involve the U.S. in this war in Europe? Or were the English trying to mislead the Germans?

    I came to a conclusion. But that’s because I read it all.
