Mailbox Monday (112)

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! 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.

    After loving David Nicholls’ One Day, I’m so, so excited for Us. I’m supposed to be on a tour for it later this fall, and I can’t wait till my copy arrives. Hope it’s one we both wind up loving!
