Mailbox Monday ~ April 6th

RobinMailboxWelcome 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.

There are so many good books coming out in the next few months. I’m excited about all of the titles that arrived last week. Some I requested and a couple were pleasant surprises.

New Arrivals


Circling the Sun by Paula McLain from Ballantine Books.
Circling the Sun tells the story of the beautiful young horse trainer, adventurer, and aviator Beryl Markham, from her childhood in British East Africa to her relationship with hunter Denys Finch Hatton and rivalry with Out of Africa author Karen Blixen—a notorious love triangle that changed the course of Beryl’s life.

Beach Town by Mary Kay Andrews from Tandem Literary.
Will true love find a foothold in this small beach town before it’s too late and disaster strikes? Told with Mary Kay Andrews inimitable wit and charm, Beach Town is this year’s summer beach read!

Disclaimer by Renee Knight from Harper.
Finding a mysterious novel at her bedside plunges documentary filmmaker Catherine Ravenscroft into a living nightmare. Though ostensibly fiction, The Perfect Stranger recreates in vivid, unmistakable detail the terrible day Catherine became hostage to a dark secret, a secret that only one other person knew–and that person is dead.

10% Human by Alanna Collen from Harper.
How Your Body’s Microbes Hold the Key to Health and Happiness: In this riveting, shocking, and beautifully written book, biologist Alanna Collen draws on the latest scientific research to show how our personal colony of microbes influences our weight, our immune system, our mental health, and even our choice of partner.

Love Is Red by Sophie Jaff from Harper.
This electrifying, addictive, and hypnotically beautiful debut spins suspense and literary fantasy into a stunning epic—the first volume in the Night Song Trilogy—ablaze with fear, mystery, and possibility.

Orient by Christopher Bollen from Harper.
A gripping novel of culture clash and murder: as summer draws to a close, a small Long Island town is gripped by a series of mysterious deaths—and one young man, a loner taken in by a local, tries to piece together the crimes before his own time runs out.

How was your week?

    We got a lot of the same books. I think we’re both in for some good reading.

    I like “Circling The Sun.” I’ve read “Out Of Africa.” I loved it. The book you’ve gotten seems like a good love triange. Hmmm.

    Beach Town and Disclaimer sound good.

    10% Human sounds interesting but since I probably wouldn’t understand it I will wait for you to break it down for me 🙂
