Mailbox Monday (149)


A God in Ruins by Kate Akinson, audiobook read by Alex Jennings – Companion novel to Life After Life.

The Status of All Things by Liz Fenton & Lisa Steinke – Kate’s fiancé breaks off their engagement at their rehearsal dinner and Kate shares the news on Facebook. And in a magical twist, she finds that she’s able to rewrite history through her status updates.

Kitchens of the Great Midwest by J. Ryan Stradal – This foodie novel is about a star chef, family, and life in the Midwest.

Delicate Monsters by Stephanie Kuehn – This is described as “a twisted and haunting tale about three teens uncovering dark secrets and even darker truths about themselves.”


Review eBooks:

Signs Point to Yes by Sandy Hall – Jane is a fangirl who babysits the siblings of her crush, but his best friend hates her. It’s described as an “adorkable romance.”

Ana of California by Andi Teran  – A modern retelling of Anne of Green Gables.

Break Your Heart by Rhonda Helms – This teacher/student New Adult romance is about a math major who falls for her cryptography professor.

Calvin by Martine Leavitt – A schizophrenic teen named Calvin wants “Calvin & Hobbs” creator Bill Watterson to write one more comic strip featuring a normal teenage Calvin, believing that it will cure him.

You Too Can Have a Body Like Mine by Alexandra Kleeman – I’m using the publisher’s description here because I don’t know how to summarize this one. “An intelligent and madly entertaining debut novel reminiscent of The Crying of Lot 49, White Noise, and City of Glass that is at once a missing-person mystery, an exorcism of modern culture, and a wholly singular vision of contemporary womanhood from a terrifying and often funny voice of a new generation.”

    Oh! I loved Complicit last year, so now I absolutely want to read Delicate Monsters. It looks good! I’m looking forward to hearing your thoughts on it.

    I hadn’t heard of Ana of California, but being a huge fan of Anne of Green Gables I’ll definitely have to check this one out. Happy reading!

    I tried reading A God in Ruins in print but I couldn’t get into it. Now that it’s out in audio maybe that will work for me.
