It's time for me to share what lovely books have come in my mailbox this week, and also what reviews I've posted over the last week. For the month of March, Mailbox Monday is hosted by I'm Booking It.
The Paris Wife: A Novel by Paula McLain -- I've already started this novelization of Ernest Hemingway's early years and his time in Paris, and I love the pacing and the style.
Mothers and Daughters: A Novel by Rae Meadows
Tugg and Teeny (linked to my review and giveaway) -- I had received a PDF so that I could get the giveaway posted, but I received the book last week. My 6-year-old and I both love this "ready to read" book.
Unsolicited Review Copies:
Hope for Your Heart: Finding Strength in Life's Storms a Crossway book by June Hunt
The Trouble with Chickens: A J.J. Tully Mystery by Doreen Cronin -- Back in the fall, I received an ARC of this delightful chapter book by picture-book great Doreen Cronin. Last week it released and I received a finished hardcover book. My son and I read this book together -- very clever (linked to my review).
Rain Brings Frogs: A Little Book of Hope -- This is such a cute little picture book. Look at those frogs!
Invincible: The Chronicles of Nick -- This is the 2nd in a paranormal YA series by Sherrilyn Kenyon. Has anyone read the first, Infinity? I am not really "into" paranormal books, but if it's a great story with a compelling cast that just so happen to be dealing with zombies (as it looks like Nick is), then I don't mind.
I received that book along with book two in a series that I have been interested in: Shimmer: A Riley Bloom Book. Riley is the younger sister of Ever, featured in the YA series, The Immortals (linked to my reviews). What I loved about Radiance (linked to my review) is that it's a great book for younger tween readers who want to get into the craze. The heroine, Riley, is 12, so she's not involved in any mature teen themes.
Reviews I posted this week:
A Double Life: Discovering Motherhood -- a really beautifully-written memoir (with giveaway!)
Prince of Tides book and movie reviews -- a revisit of both the book and the movie. Love Pat Conroy!
