Mailbox Monday ~ January 9th

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.

A few new books in my mailbox this past week.

New Arrivals


Hidden Figures: The American Dream and the Untold Story of the Black Women Mathematicians Who Helped Win the Space Race by Margot Lee Shetterly from William Morrow.
Set against the backdrop of the Jim Crow South and the civil rights movement, the never-before-told true story of NASA’s African-American female mathematicians who played a crucial role in America’s space program—and whose contributions have been unheralded, until now.

Marlene by C.W. Gortner from William Morrow.
A lush, dramatic biographical novel of one of the most glamorous and alluring legends of Hollywood’s golden age, Marlene Dietrich—from the gender-bending cabarets of Weimar Berlin to the lush film studios of Hollywood, a sweeping story of passion, glamour, ambition, art, and war.

The Original Ginny Moon by Benjamin Ludwig
A compulsively readable and touching novel about being an outsider trying to find a place to belong and making sense of a world that just doesn’t seem to add up.

    I’ve heard good things about Hidden Figures so I hope you love it!

    Hidden Figures should be a really interesting read! I can’t wait to see the movie, but would want to read the book first. I started reading The Original Ginny Moon and am enjoying it. Hope you do too!

    I didn’t realize that it was a book, although I shouldn’t be surprised. The movie was amazing.

    Hidden Figures is a movie I want to see…so I also want the book! Marlene looks tempting, too. Enjoy! Thanks for sharing, and have a great week.

    Marlene should be especially good.

    Very interesting and unusual books. I have had my eye on Marlene. Enjoy!

    I hope to get to Hidden Figures soon. I wanted to read it before I see the movie, but I’m beginning to doubt that’s going to happen.

    I hear that the movie Hidden Figures is wonderful – it certainly sounds good. Marlene should be interesting too, as well as the foster care story. Hope you enjoy them all.
