Mailbox Monday (August 25)

Before this week, the only book I had received in August was Aberrations by Penelope Przekop, my first book from Mini Book Expo for Bloggers (review coming this week!). I neglected to mention it before because I was on vacation at the time. Since then, nothing until this week when I hit the jackpot! On Wednesday, I received The Grift by Debra Ginsberg (courtesy of Random House), as well as When One Man Dies by Dave White (from the Read It Forward program) and Acedia & Me: A Marriage, Monks, and a Writer’s Life by Kathleen Norris (courtesy of the Penguin Group USA). On Friday, three more came: The Nettle Spinner by Kathryn Kuitenbrouwer (my second from Mini Book Expo), as well as The Corpse Will Keep by Pat Capponi and Mudbound by Hillary Jordan (both from Harper Collins Canada). To top things off, today I received Midwife of the Blue Ridge directly from the author, Christine Blevins!

So many new books to read! I’m especially excited about Kathleen Norris’ book as she is one of my favourite writers and Mudbound as it was the winner of a Bellwether Prize (I’m curious to see what “socially responsible literature” sounds like), but all these books sound good!

Mailbox Monday is hosted by Marcia at The Printed Page.


  1. All the books in my stack this week sound soooooo good too - I have the delightful problem of which one to read first. =)
