Mailbox Monday is usually hosted by Marcia at the Printed Page; the meme will be doing a blog tour over the next few months - in August it is hosted by Chick Loves Lit. Mailbox Monday gives us a chance to feature the books that came into our homes over the past week (and of course to check out what came in to everyone else's!)
I received a mix of books over the past two weeks - YA, Memoir, Travel, Fiction - I love having so much variety in my mailbox!
The Hunger Games and Catching Fire (The Second Book of the Hunger Games)by Suzanne Collins: with all frenzy about the Mockingjay release last week, I thought it was time to finally see what it was all about
Unexpectedly, Milo: A Novel by Matthew Dicks: this is my bookclub choice for September
My Maasai Life: From Suburbia to Savannah by Robin Wiszowaty - this memoir arrived from Little Bird Publicity
Everything Is Going to Be Great: An Underfunded and Overexposed European Grand Tour by Rachel Shukert arrived thanks to Erica at Harper Perennial
The Caliph's House: A Year in Casablanca by Tahir Shah - I heard about this book on BookNAround and was excited to be able to get it from PBS
Recipes for a Perfect Marriage by Kate Kerrigan - this author is currently living in a town in Ireland very close to where my Mom is from (Killala, Co Mayo) and her newest book (not yet out in the US) was featured in the TV Book Club which is where I discovered her
The Piano Teacher: A Novel - this was a win from Booking Mama (thank you!)
What came into your home this week?
