Mailbox Monday ~ December 26th

HolidayCardinal-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.

It’s been a busy week with little time to read. I always end up waiting until the last few days to finish up my Christams shopping! I did manage to finish an audio book while making cookies.

A few new books arrived last week.

New Arrivals


The Possessions by Sara Flannery Murphy from Harper.
In this electrifying literary debut, a young woman who channels the dead for a living crosses a dangerous line when she falls in love with one of her clients, whose wife died under mysterious circumstances.

Homo Deus: A Brief History of Tomorrow by Yuval Noah Harari from Harper.
Yuval Noah Harari, author of the critically-acclaimed Sapiens, returns with an equally original, compelling, and provocative book, turning his focus toward humanity’s future, and our quest to upgrade humans into gods.

A Bridge Across the Ocean by Susan Meissner from Berkley.
Wartime intrigue spans the lives of three women past and present.

Doctor Who Psychology: A Madman with a Box by Travis Langley and Katy Manning from Serena @ Savvy Verse & Wit. Thank you!
This fascinating in-depth academic study, edited by Travis Langley, contains 20 essays delving into the psychology behind the time-traveling Doctor in his many iterations, as well as his companions and his foes.
