Mailbox Monday ~ October 19th

AutumnChickadeeMailbox-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.


 
Another fairly busy week but I managed to carve out a block of time for reading by participating in Dewey’s 24 Hour Readathon this past Saturday. Here’s what arrived last week . . .

New Arrivals

BoksOct19_170601

Butterflies by Ronald Orenstein and Thomas Marent from Amazon Vine.
From the common swallowtail to the iridescent blue morpho, Thomas Marent’s stunning photographs provide a close-up view of the remarkable family of insects known as Lepidoptera.

The Tears of Dark Water by Corban Addison from HarperCollins.
Daniel and Vanessa Parker are an American success story. He is a Washington, DC, power broker, and she is a physician with a thriving practice. But behind the gilded facade, their marriage is a shambles, and their teenage son, Quentin, is self-destructing. In desperation, Daniel dusts off a long-delayed dream a sailing trip around the world. Little does he know, the voyage he hopes will save them may destroy them instead.
