Mailbox Monday ~ July 13th

Butterfly-PinkFlower_Mailbox56392Welcome 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.

Only one print book and a couple of audio downloads last week. Audio is great to listen to in the garden as I run from the mosquitoes. With all the rain we are having it is so bad they are biting during the day, in the sun. A walk in the woods? Forget about it! I think they are immune to insect spray. On the plus side, my flowers look wonderful and I don’t have to water them.

Print Books


The Race for Paris by Meg Waite Clayton from Harper.
The New York Times bestselling author of The Wednesday Sisters returns with a moving and powerfully dynamic World War II novel about two American journalists and an Englishman, who together race the Allies to Occupied Paris for the scoop of their lives.

Audio Downloads


The Last Pilot by Benjamin Johncock from Audiobook Jukebox.
Beginning when the dust of the Second World War has only just begun to settle and rushing onward into the 1960s, Benjamin Johncock traces the path of this young couple as they are uprooted by events much larger than themselves. Set against the backdrop of one of the most emotionally charged periods in American history, The Last Pilot is a mesmerizing story of loss and finding courage in the face of it.

The Truth and Other Lies by Sascha Arango from Simon & Schuster Audio.
From the outside, Henry Hayden has a perfect life: he’s a famous novelist with more money than he can spend, a grand house in the country, a loyal, clever wife. But Henry has a dark side. If only the readers and critics who worship his every word knew that his success depends on a carefully maintained lie.

How was your week?

    Enjoy your books and send some of that rain our way – we are about to fry.

    Leslie, we are fortunate to have Meg Waite Clayton living here in the Bay Area. She will be launching The Race for Paris on August 11 at Kepler’s Book Store in Menlo Park. She also is a member of a book club that I’m a member of. She’s very humble and acts like any other member. She’s fun to have around.

    I hope you enjoy all of your books. I don’t usually listen to books, but think I should give it a try. I just requested an audio for review.
