Mailbox Monday is the gathering place for readers to share the books they received during the previous week. Warning: Mailbox Monday can lead to envy, toppling TBR piles and humongous wish lists! Mailbox Monday, which was started by Marcia at The Printed Page, is on blog tour—this month, it’s hosted by Laura at Library of Clean Reads.
I didn’t receive any books in the mail this week (which is just as well since I’m on a book-acquiring ban until June), but I did meet up with the usual Montreal gang (Cindy, Donna, Linda and Tina; Amanda unfortunately couldn’t make it). Over tea and hot chocolate, we chatted about the latest installment of Authors Behaving Badly and about whether or not we’d be going to BEA in May (three of us are not, including me; Donna and Tina might be), among other things.
Tina gave me one book, which was one I’d “requested” before my ban went into effect: Keeping You a Secret by Julie Anne Peters. (One of her other books, Luna, has been highly recommended to me, so I’m eager to read this one.)
From the author’s website:
Expectations. A girl meets a guy, falls in love, gets married, has sex, not necessarily in that order. Holland Jaeger is living up to the expectations. But when she meets Cece, the course of her life is changed forever. She falls in love with this girl—this out-and-proud lesbian. Holland’s awakening to her own sexuality is the key to setting her free. Can Holland trust that the people she counts on most in her life will accept and embrace her newfound identity? Keeping their relationship a secret may prove to be the worst mistake Holland and Cece could ever make.
