Mailbox Monday ~ July 27th

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.

I’ve been in a bit of a writing slump the past couple of weeks. I have lots to say but the words are getting stuck in my head. I hate when that happens! Perhaps there were just too many July distractions this month.

A couple of print books arrived last week . . .

New Arrivals


Black-Eyed Susans by Julia Heaberlin from LibraryThing.
Shocking, intense, and utterly original, Black-Eyed Susans is a dazzling psychological thriller, seamlessly weaving past and present in a searing tale of a young woman whose harrowing memories remain in a field of flowers—as a killer makes a chilling return to his garden.

Not Black and White by G.A. Beller from Tandem Literary. This was a surprise arrival, but does sound interesting since I know a lot about Chicago politics.
A fictional account of many of the events that led to the meteoric rise of a local charismatic street politician to become America’s first African-American president, and the downfall and imprisonment of two consecutive governors in the State of Illinois, along with several of their most trusted advisors and cohorts.


Win A Copy …SummerSecrets

Summer Secrets by Jane Green

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.

Enter on or before August 1st. US addresses only.

    I love the cover of Black Eyed Susans! I have it to read, but the e-galley doesn’t have the gorgeous cover.

    I would’ve thought Not Black and White would be nonfiction. I hope you enjoy it!

    I really like the psychological thriller. “Not Black And White” seems like a good one too.

    I love thrillers! I just asked Netgalley for Black Eyed Susans! I’m new to the meme thing and my TBR is getting bigger by the min!

    Black-Eyed Susans looks good.

    I am a bit late for last Monday’s Mailbox Monday with tomorrow being a new one. 🙂
