Mailbox 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! This past week was hot and busy. I did have a fun outing with my teen though – we went to a concert to see Panic! At the Disco and had a great time. Hope that those of you that have a three-day weekend are having a fun one.
Here’s what’s new in my (all digital again) mailbox this week:
Us by David Nicholls – This book is getting a lot of buzz and is about a family’s trip to Europe, where the husband hopes to save his failing marriage.
Better Than Perfect by Melissa Kantor – A girl’s perfect life starts to unravel leaving her questioning what she wants.
Solitaire by Alice Oseman – The author wrote this when she was 17 – impressive! It’s about a high school student and blogger who gets involved with a mysterious new online group called Solitaire.
No Parking at the End Times by Bryan Bliss – This is about a girl whose parents uproot their lives and take off in their van to follow a doomsday cult. Sounds interesting!
What If by Rebecca Donovan – A new NA book from the author of the Breathing series. It’s about friendship, second chances, and secrets. “What if you had a second chance to meet someone for the first time?”
The Cemetery Boys by Heather Brewer – I haven’t read anything by this author but I like the author from following her on social media so I decided to try this one. Stephen moves to a new town and gets caught up with a group of friends that get involved in hijinks at the cemetery.
Playlist for the Dead by Michelle Falkoff – This book is about the aftermath of a suicide, where a friend listens to the playlist left behind to try to make sense of it all. Sounds like Thirteen Reasons Why doesn’t it?
Althea & Oliver by Cristina Moracho – This is a friendship/love story set in the 90s about identity, illness and finding yourself. This looks really good!
One Step Too Far by Tina Seskis – This is a psychological thriller about Emily, a woman who walks out on her family to reinvent herself as someone new.
e-Audiobooks from Overdrive:
The Queen of the Tearling by Erika Johansen, narrated by Katherine Kellgren – High fantasy is not my usual thing, but this book has gotten some positive buzz so I grabbed the audio from the library.
The Good Girl by Mary Kubica, narrated by Lindy Nettleton, Johnny Heller, Tom Taylorson, Andi Arndt – I just started listening to this one. It’s a thriller about the abduction of a young woman and the effect on her family.
Thank you to Harper, Harper Teen, Greenwillow Books, Grand Central Publishing, and Viking Juvenile.
