Mailbox Monday ~ May 9th

SpringBirdsFenceMailbox-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.

This is going to be a busy but fun week. I’ll be at BEA Wednesday through Friday — my first time attending.

New Arrivals


The Mandibles: A Family, 2029-2047 by Lionel Shriver from Harper.
The year is 2029, and nothing is as it should be. The very essence of American life, the dollar, is under attack. In a coordinated move by the rest of the world’s governments, the dollar loses all its value. The American President declares that the States will default on all its loans–prices skyrocket, currency becomes essentially worthless, and we watch one family struggle to survive through it all.

Missing, Presumed by Susie Steiner from LibraryThing.
For readers of Kate Atkinson and Tana French comes a page-turning literary mystery that brings to life the complex and wholly relatable Manon Bradshaw, a strong-willed detective assigned to a high-risk missing persons case.

    Have a great time at BEA, Leslie. Can’t wait to see which books you bring home from there 🙂

    I have never read Shriver. If I were to start with one, do you have a specific recommendation?

    Have such a good time at BEA! I know that it’s close for you, imagine, Chicago this year! I couldn’t get away from work, but I’m so happy for all that can go.

    Missing, Presumed looks good.

    ENJOY the BEA. So many people are going this year, but I can’t. It would be fun to meet everyone.

    You will LOVE the BEA….I am sure you know, but take a suitcase to put all of your books in when your bag gets heavy. 🙂

    Are you going to the Book Blogger Conference? And Speed Dating?

    Again….have fun.

      Yes to the conference and speed dating. Not sure if we can bring a suitcase though, it says no rolling bags on the BEA info page. Perhaps there will be a place to check them.
