Mailbox Monday ~ January 16th

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 variety this week . . .

January is Vintage Scifi Month, and when I saw that The Lathe of Heaven, a classic scifi novel that I never got around to reading, was being re-released in audio, I just had to request it.

Even though I have a backlog of NetGalley reads, I couldn’t resist adding two more. I’ll just have to read a little faster.

New Arrivals

A classic science fiction novel by one of the greatest writers of the genre, set in a future world where one man’s dreams control the fate of humanity.

The Wanderers by Meg Howrey
Station Eleven meets The Martian in this brilliantly inventive novel about three astronauts training for the first-ever mission to Mars, an experience that will push the boundary between real and unreal, test their relationships, and leave each of them—and their families—changed forever.

Ill Will by Dan Chaon
Two sensational unsolved crimes—one in the past, another in the present—are linked by one man’s memory and self-deception in this chilling novel of literary suspense from National Book Award finalist Dan Chaon.

    I’ve heard about Le Guin for years but have never read her. Don’t know if I will.

    I’ve been listening for Vintage Sci Fi too. I’m not familiar with Le Guin. The Wanders looks good too.
    (I’ve got a long NG list too. Must read faster.) Happy Reading!

    Some days I read super fast and some days I read more slowly. I think the books we read determine the speed. Enjoy your new books!
