Mailbox Monday ~ December 12th

WinterBirdsMailbox-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.

Arrrrgh … buried in snow this weekend. Just enough to be annoying but not enough to make me stay home and miss a family event and a Christmas party.

A few new books arrived this week. I’m still reading but haven’t had much time to write about them. Perhaps an end of year catch-up post as I’m falling behind in my reviews and a few of those books made my favorites list.

New Arrivals


A Million Little Things by Susan Mallery from Mira.
A twisty tale of family dynamics that explores what can go terribly, hysterically wrong when the line between friendship and family blurs.

The Stranger in the Woods by Michael Finkel from Knopf.
The true story of a man who lived alone in a tent in the Maine woods, never talking to another person and surviving by stealing supplies from nearby cabins for twenty-seven years.

Night of Fire by Colin Thubron from Harper.
A house is burning, threatening the existence of its six tenants—including a failed priest; a naturalist; a neurosurgeon; an invalid dreaming of his anxious boyhood; and their landlord, whose relationship to the tenants is both intimate and shadowy.

    These all look very tempting…I think my first choice would be A Million Little Things. Thanks for sharing…and here are MY WEEKLY UPDATES

    I have to say the Night in Fire sounds a little mysterious, looking forward to your thoughts.

    We’re under about 8″ of snow and now the frigid temps are moving in. Tis the season, right? I hope we both enjoy the Mallery book.

    No snow here, but I’m ok with that. My daughter not so much so. I hope that you get out soon and that the snow does not keep you in too long. Happy reading and happy holidays.

    Enjoy your new goodies, Leslie! I am way behind in my reading and blogging. I hope to post a fun giveaway soon, and my annual First Lines post as well.

    All your books sound good. Susan Mallory’s book caught my eye. I don’t remember the last time I read one of her books.
