Mailbox Monday (91)

Mailbox Monday buttonMailbox Monday is a weekly event where we share our latest book arrivals. Link up and find new mailboxes to stalk at the Mailbox Monday blog!

I’m still playing catch-up from my vacation, so I’m sorry if I haven’t been as present in the blogosphere lately. I’ll get my blogging mojo back soon I’m sure.

I’m excited about the books I picked up this week! There are some books that are perfect for LGBT April, an eagerly anticipated sequel, promising looking audiobooks, and a couple Adult titles that sound fantastic.

This week I received:


Review Books:

Astonish Me by Maggie Shipstead – Thank you Knoph publishing! I’ve been interested in this title – it’s about the world of professional ballet, family and love.

Shotgun Lovesongs by Nickolas Butler (Audiobook)Thank you Audiobook Jukebox and Macmillan Audio! I’m eager to listen to this one. It’s told by multiple perspectives and performed by a full cast. The book is about small-town life, music, friendship, and love, with some inspiration from Justin Vernon, frontman for Bon Iver, and friend of the author.

Review e-books:


Rooms by Lauren Oliver – I’m excited to read Oliver’s Adult debut! It’s described as a ghost story/ family drama.

Ask Me by Kimberley Pauley (Audiobook) – Thank you Audiobook Jukebox and Blackstone Audio. Ask Me is about a teenage oracle who is compelled to always tell the truth, even though what she says is cryptic.

No One Needs to Know by Amanda Grace – No One Needs to Know is about a girl and her twin brother fall for the same girl.

Fragile Line by Brooklyn Sky – Fragile Line is about a girl who suffers mysterious blackouts and is haunted by bad childhood memories.

Whisper to Me by Christina Lee – Book 3 in the Between Breaths series. This installment is about Rachel and bass player Kai.

Boys Like You by Juliana Stone – This YA romance is about two damaged characters that find each other.

The Boy I Love by Nina de Gramont -This book is about secrets, love and prejudice.

Tell Me Again How a Crush Should Feel by Sara Farizan – A Persian girl falls for another girl at her high school. A coming out story with plot twists.

My Best Friend, Maybe by Caela Carter – This book is about friendship, love and sexuality and features a vacation to Greece.

    I liked ‘Astonish Me’ but think her debut, ‘Seating Arrangements’ was better. The strength of ‘Astonish Me’ is the result of Shipstead’s love for the ballet world of the 1970s, but the real life stories were even juicier. She is a brilliant observer of social mores and I love it when she lets herself go a bit wild with her satirical humor and there wasn’t enough of that here, nor was there enough mystery regarding the plot. Still, I did like it and think it will do very well. The full review is on my blog if you want to take a look after you read the book and know what you think.
