Mailbox Monday ~ May 23rd

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.


More Books from BEA

Last week I featured the books that I was actively looking for. Today I’m featuring some of the books that I newly discovered while visiting the booths at BEA.


The Four-Dimensional Human: Ways of Being in the Digital World by Laurence Scott
A highly original and pioneering portrait of life in a digital landscape.

Warp by Lev Grossman
This re-publication of Lev Grossman’s debut novel, Warp, shows the roots of his Magicians hero Quentin Coldwater in a book that is for anyone (and everyone) who has ever felt adrift in their own life.

Little Deaths by Emma Flint
Inspired by a true story, Little Deaths, like celebrated novels by Sarah Waters and Megan Abbott, is compelling literary crime fiction that explores the capacity for good and evil in us all.

The Woman in Cabin 10 by Ruth Ware
With surprising twists, spine-tingling turns, and a setting that proves as uncomfortably claustrophobic as it is eerily beautiful, Ruth Ware offers up another taut and intense read in The Woman in Cabin 10—one that will leave even the most sure-footed reader restlessly uneasy long after the last page is turned.

Another Day in the Death of America: A Chronicle of Ten Short Lives by Gary Younge
This powerful and moving work puts a human face—a child’s face—on the “collateral damage” of gun violence at a time when the gun issue in America is being hotly debated.

The Littlest Bigfoot by Jennifer Weiner
A laugh-out-loud funny and painstakingly real tale of friendship, furry creatures, and finding the place where you belong.

I’m Thinking of Ending Things by Iain Reid
In this deeply suspenseful and irresistibly unnerving debut novel, a man and his girlfriend are on their way to a secluded farm. When the two take an unexpected detour, she is left stranded in a deserted high school, wondering if there is any escape at all. What follows is a twisted unraveling that will haunt you long after the last page is turned.

Holding Up the Universe by Jennifer Niven
A heart-wrenching story about what it means to see someone—and love someone—for who they truly are.

Faithful by Alice Hoffman
A soul-searching story about a young woman struggling to redefine herself and the power of love, family, and fate.

Gemina (The Illuminae Files #2) by Amie Kaufman
The highly anticipated sequel to the instant New York Times bestseller that critics are calling “out-of-this-world awesome.”

Mischling by Affinity Konar
One of the most harrowing, powerful, and imaginative books of the year” (Anthony Doerr) about twin sisters fighting to survive the evils of World War II.
