Mailbox Monday ~ October 10th
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.
I’ve been enjoying the mild weather we’ve been having this year. Usually by mid-October I have most of the garden clean-up done, plants potted and ready to come inside for the winter, and the yard furniture cleaned and ready to be put away. This year I’m still picking fresh veggies and herbs – very unusual for Chicago – but I know that will soon come to an end. Patchy frost is predicted for later this week.
A few new books arrived last week.
Dear Mr. M by Herman Koch from LibraryThing.
From various perspectives, Herman Koch tells the dark tale of a writer in decline, a teenage couple in love, a missing teacher, and a single book that entwines all of their fates.
The Comet Seekers by Helen Sedgwick from Harper.
A magical, intoxicating debut novel, both intimate and epic, that intertwines the past, present, and future of two lovers bound by the passing of great comets overhead and a coterie of remarkable ancestors.
No One Knows by J.T. Ellison, a win from Kimba @ Caffeinated Book Reviewer
The day Aubrey Hamilton’s husband is declared dead by the state of Tennessee should bring closure so she can move on with her life. But Aubrey doesn’t want to move on; she wants Josh back.
