Mailbox Monday (June 28)

Mailbox Monday buttonI requested The Singer’ s Gun by Emily St. John Mandel from Unbridled Books while I was in New York City—I’m looking forward to reading it not only because I enjoyed Mandel’s debut, Last Night in Montreal (read my review), but also because Wendy at Caribousmom recommended this one for fans of literary fiction and mysteries, calling it “a haunting novel about love, loss, and betrayal which kept my interest from beginning to end” (read Wendy’s full review).



What did you find in your mailbox this past week? For other Mailbox Monday posts, head over to Marcia’s blog, The Printed Page.
