Mailbox Monday (109)

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!

Here’s what’s in my mailbox this week:


Vampires of Manhattan by Melissa de la Cruz – This is a New Adult continuation of the Blue Bloods series. The audio is performed by MacLeod Andrews.

Big Little Lies by Liane Moriarty – My library hold came in and I’m so excited to listen to this one. The audio is performed by Caroline Lee, and this book is about relationships and a murder investigation. I just started listening to it today.

Digital review copies:

My True Love Gave to Me: Twelve Holiday Stories edited by Stephanie Perkins – Holiday stories + so many favorite authors = awesome!

Alex as Well by Alyssa Brugman – This Australian YA book about an intersex teen got some rave reviews when it first came out, and now it’s new to the US.

Cut Me Free by J.R. Johannsen – This YA thriller sounds a little scary and intense. It’s about a girl who leaves her abusive home life behind but the past is catching up with her.

Fantasy League by Mike Lupica – I read Lupica’s QB1 last year and survived even though I’m so not a sporty type. This is his latest MG football release. It’s described as Moneyball for kids.

Nest by Esther Erlich – This middle grade book is set in 1972 on Cape Cod, and is about a girl named Chirp, family, friendship, and birds.

Thank you to Hachette Audio, St. Martins Press, Henry Holt and Co, Farrar, Straus & Giroux, Wunderkind PR, and Wendy Lamb Books.

    I have been intrigued by Alex as Well and Cut me Free. Both have very good (and different!) premises!
    And I still haven’t read Liane Moriarty – I know this is something I need to fix, just not sure which one to read first. Any recommendation?
    Enjoy your new books!

      Thanks, Kay! This is only my second Moriarty book, but I really liked The Husband’s Secret. Big Little Lies is starting off well too.

  5. I was all excited when I saw the vampire book you have listed – great cover! But then I saw it was a New Adult book and I’m not really in to them. But I do tend to read anything with vampires in so I might mark it as a maybe. Enjoy!

  16. Big Little Lies should be good in audio. I have it in paperback. I need to get back to audio. I used to listen on the way to work.

    The Holiday Stories looks good.

    ENJOY all your books and your reading week.

    Is the Blue Blood series good? I read a graphic novel and it intrigued me enough to make me think I want to pick up the book!
