In anticipation of my upcoming vacation Mailbox Monday is going with a beach theme. We board the plane for beautiful sunny Mexico one week from today.


Thank you to everyone who stops by Mailbox Monday. Whether you comment or visit I appreciate your taking the time to drop in.

Here’s what come into my house last week. None of these will be making the trek south but I’ll have lots of reading to do once I get home.

Fiction ~ Conscience Point by Erica Abeel

Historical fiction ~ Freeman Walker by David Allan Cates

Historical & contemporary fiction ~ The Melancholy Fate of Capt. Lewis by Michael Pritchett

Nonfiction(?) ~ The Lost City of Z: A Tale of Deadly Obsession in the Amazon by David Grann

Fiction ~ The Misadventures of Oliver Booth: Life in the Lap of Luxury by David Desmond

Memoir ~ Honeymoon in Tehran: Two Years of Love and Danger in Iran by Azadeh Moaveni

Fiction ~ This One Is Mine by Maria Stemple. For those of you who also got this one from Miriam take a look at pages 183-214.

Historical fiction ~ The Gates of Trevalyan by Jacquelyn Cook

Memoir ~ Mighty Queens of Freeville, The: A Mother, a Daughter, and the Town That Raised Them by Amy Dickinson

and finally this last one is really a bit of surprise as I don’t remember requesting it:

    Sadly, I didn’t get anything in the mail this last week, but just wanted to say that Dickinson’s book looks really good (just added it to my Friday Finds list), and I think I’ll check out her show on NPR.
