Mailbox Monday ~ November 16th

AutumnLeavesMailbox-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 busy week for me. And if I didn’t already have enough to do, I’m now working part-time two days a week. Reading has been slow, but thank goodness for audio books. Here’s what arrived last week . . .

Print Books


The Things We Keep by Sally Hepworth from St. Martin’s Press.
Anna Forster, in the early stages of Alzheimer’s disease at only thirty-eight years old, knows that her family is doing what they believe to be best when they take her to Rosalind House, an assisted living facility. She also knows there’s just one another resident her age, Luke. What she does not expect is the love that blossoms between her and Luke even as she resists her new life at Rosalind House.

Audio Downloads

From Penguin Random House Audio


Saturn Run by John Sandford and Ctein.
The year is 2066. A Caltech intern inadvertently notices an anomaly from a space telescope—something is approaching Saturn, and decelerating. Space objects don’t decelerate. Spaceships do.

Slade House by David Mitchell.
From “one of the most electric writers alive” (The Boston Globe) comes a taut, intricately woven, spine-chilling, reality-warping novel. Set across five decades, beginning in 1979 and coming to its astonishing conclusion on October 31, 2015, Slade House invites readers to experience yet again David Mitchell’s extraordinary imagination.

The Grownup by Gillian Flynn.
A canny young woman is struggling to survive by perpetrating various levels of mostly harmless fraud.


Still time to enter the giveaway for . . .

An Old-Fashioned Christmas by Ellen Stimson
Old Fashioned Christmas

With its trademark snow, piney forests, sleigh rides and wood smoke curling out of village chimneys, New England was practically invented for the Christmas postcard. It’s got your Christmas goose and the maple syrup with which to glaze it. It’s most of the reason author Ellen Stimson made Vermont her home. Here she shares recipes that have been in her family for generations, mixes up a cocktail or two, and invites readers to make their own traditions.

Enter on or before November 21st. US/Canada addresses only.

    Is that a new book by Gillian Flynn? I’ll have to look for it. The Things We Keep sounds outstanding!

    I am curious about the Gillian Flynn…I did check it out and it’s a novella, so it should be a quick and possibly fun read. Enjoy all of your new books. I have an e-ARC of The Things We Keep, and I’m looking forward to it.

      It’s from an anthology of short stories, Rogues. The audio is only an hour and a half long.

    The Things We Keep sounds good. I’ve never read a Flynn book, so The Grownup might be a good place to start. I like that it’s so short, I can get a sense of her writing style and it might make me want to try one of her full length novels.

    I haven’t even read the “famous” Gillian Flynn book yet!
