Mailbox Monday ~ September 21st

CardinalMailboxAutumnWelcome 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.

New books last week . . .

Print Books


Jackaby by William Ritter from Algonquin.
Newly arrived in New Fiddleham, New England, 1892, and in need of a job, Abigail Rook meets R. F. Jackaby, an investigator of the unexplained with a keen eye for the extraordinary–including the ability to see supernatural beings.

Beastly Bones by William Ritter from Algonquin.
In 1892, New Fiddleham, New England, things are never quite what they seem, especially when Abigail Rook and her eccentric employer R. F. Jackaby are called upon to investigate the supernatural.

The Shift: One Nurse, Twelve Hours, Four Patients’ Lives by Theresa Brown from Algonquin.
In a book as eye-opening as it is riveting, practicing nurse and New York Times columnist Theresa Brown invites us to experience not just a day in the life of a nurse but all the life that happens in just one day on a hospital’s cancer ward.

The Library at Mount Char by Scott Hawkins from Crown.
Neil Gaiman meets Joe Hill in this astonishingly original, terrifying, and darkly funny contemporary fantasy.

How was your week?

    The Shift should be quite good…from my own experiences the nurses on Cancer wards are extra special and very remarkable individuals! Happy Reading

    For all of you who are of ” a certain age”, that is over 75 or so, I would highly recommend “Dancing with Fish and Ammonites: a Memoir ” by Penelope Lively. It’s a wonderful book about the joys and perils of getting old.
