Mailbox Monday ~ March 9th

WelcomeBirdhouseMailbox-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.


A variety of formats arrived in my physical and virtual mailboxes last week…

New Arrivals


Smash Cut by Brad Gooch arrived unexpectedly from Harper.
Beautifully written, full of rich detail and poignant reflection, recalling a time and a place and group of friends with affection and clarity, Smash Cut is an extraordinary memoir and an exquisite account of an epoch.

The Mapmaker’s Children by Sarah McCoy from Crown.
When Sarah Brown, daughter of abolitionist John Brown, realizes that her artistic talents may be able to help save the lives of slaves fleeing north, she becomes one of the Underground Railroad’s leading mapmakers.

Digital Downloads


Summer Secrets by Jane Green from NetGalley and St. Martin’s Press.
Jane Green delivers her second blockbuster novel of 2015, a story of one woman struggling to right the wrongs of her past, with even more complications in the present.

Crazy Love You by Lisa Unger from Simon & Schuster Audio.
Falling in love can feel like a dream…or a living nightmare.

How was your week?

    Ooh, I want to read the new Jane Green…and I LOVED Crazy Love You. Hope you enjoy your books…and here are MY WEEKLY UPDATES

    I read CRAZY LOVE YOU, so I can warn you: the first two-thirds of CRAZY LOVE YOU is the best kind of book, the kind that is unputdownable.

    Here’s what you need to know right up front so the book is as unputdownable for you as it was for me. Priss is not what she appears to be; she is a mystery throughout this book. And then so is Ian. Is he crazy? Is he good or dangerous? Is Priss dangerous? Or is she not even real?

    Problem with this book is that the last third degenerates to the supernatural and becomes just plain silly. It’s too easy to solve mysteries by blaming them on supernatural silliness.
