Mailbox Monday 131

Books in the Mail:

My Heart and Other Black Holes by Jasmine Warga – This is a YA Diversity Book Club pick, and it’s about two teens with a suicide pact.

The Art of Being Normal by Lisa Williamson – This UK book is about friendship, love and gender issues and features a transgender protagonist.

The Strange and Beautiful Sorrows of Ava Lavender by Lesley Walton – This Morris nominee is about a girl who is born with wings who just wants to fit in. I’m reading this now and it’s very unique, with lovely writing.

Review eBooks:

Kissing Ted Callahan (and Other Guys) by Amy Spalding – This book is about friends that make a pact to make something happen with their crushes. They document their progress in a shared notebook. Looks cute!

City Love by Susane Colasanti – This is about three girls spending their summer before college starts in NYC.

The Trouble with Destiny by Lauren Morrill – A drum major enters a cruise ship talent show to win $25k for her school band.

Leaving Amarillo by Caisey Quinn – The first book in a new NA series that centers around a country band.

An Appetite for Violets by Martine Bailey – This historical fiction book is about an under-cook in England who gets caught up in a murderous conspiracy. (Check out a giveaway!)

Where They Found Her by Kimberly McCreight – A new suspense novel from the author of Reconstructing Amelia.

Thanks so much to: HarperCollins, Candlewick Press, Little, Brown, Delacorte, William Morrow Paperbacks, and St. Martin’s.

    Wow, what a great selection!

    I hadn’t heard of The Art of Being Normal and now I definitely want to read it. And I have heard really great things about Ava Lavender, but I’ve been hesitating between paper and audio for a while now.
    Happy reading!
