Mailbox Monday ~ August 22nd

hummingbird mailboxWelcome 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.

A couple of books and a few audio downloads arrived last week.

New Arrivals


Wonder Women: 25 Innovators, Inventors, and Trailblazers Who Changed History by Sam Maggs from by Quirk Books.
In Wonder Women, author Sam Maggs introduces you to pioneering female scientists, engineers, mathematicians, adventurers, and inventors—each profile a study in passion, smarts, and stickto-itiveness, complete with portraits by Google doodler Sophia Foster-Dimino, an extensive bibliography, and a guide to present-day women-centric STEM organizations.

Security by Gina Wohlsdorf from Audiobook Jukebox.
A debut thriller that will causes countless sleepless nights! In the tradition of gothic and popular horror, with echoes of The Shining and Psycho, Security redefines fear for a generation that’s seen it all.

Audio Downloads


The Ballroom by Anna Hope from Random House Audio.
Set over the heatwave summer of 1911, at a time when England was at the point of revolt, The Ballroom is a tale of unlikely love and dangerous obsession, of madness and sanity, and of who gets to decide which is which.

The Underground Railroad by Colson Whitehead from Random House Audio.
The Underground Railroad is at once a kinetic adventure tale of one woman’s ferocious will to escape the horrors of bondage and a shattering, powerful meditation on the history we all share.

The Dollhouse by Fiona Davis from Penguin Audio.
Fiona Davis’s stunning debut novel pulls readers into the lush world of New York City’s glamorous Barbizon Hotel for Women, where a generation of aspiring models, secretaries, and editors lived side-by-side while attempting to claw their way to fairy-tale success in the 1950s, and where a present-day journalist becomes consumed with uncovering a dark secret buried deep within the Barbizon’s glitzy past.
