Mailbox Monday (157)

mailbox monday

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. I took an unexpected blogging break last week- very refreshing! Do you find yourself blogging less frequently during the summer?

I didn’t receive any physical books in the mail this week.  And with this book lull I took the time to reorganize my bookshelves and start some donation boxes.

Here are the digital review books that made their way to me:


A Million Miles Away by Lara Avery, read by Kara Bartell – A girl loses her twin sister in a car accident and has trouble coping with the loss. I’ve already listened to this one and it’s pretty intense.

The Road to You by Alecia Whitaker, read by the author – This is the sequel to Wildflower, about a young country music star navigating fame and romance.


High School Horror: Teen Frankenstein by Chandler Baker – In this Frankenstein retelling, Tor Frankenstein hits someone with her car, and then brings him back to life.

I See Reality: Twelve Short Stories About Real Life compiled by Grace Kendall – “Through prose and comics alike, these heart-pounding short stories ask hard questions about a range of topics from sexuality and addiction to violence and immigration.” Authors include: Kristin Elizabeth Clark, Faith Erin Hicks, Heather Demetrios, Kekla Magoon and more.

I Crawl Through It by A.S. King – This surrealist novel is about school pressure and mental health and sounds very original (like all of King’s work).

Dream Things True by Marie Marquardt – In this star-crossed romance, a wealthy guy falls for an undocumented girl and immigration raids threaten their future.

The Foxglove Killings by Tara Kelly – In this murder mystery, a teen is found murdered with a foxglove in her mouth.

This is Where it Ends by Marieke Nijkamp – This book takes place over the 54 minutes of a school shooting and is from four different pov’s.

Thanks so much to: Hachette Audio, Macmillan Children’s, Entangled Teen, and Sourcebooks Fire.

  1. I bet I Crawl Through it is wonderful. I got rid of quite a few books last week but I need to get rid of a whole lot more.

  4. I like the sound of The Road to You, so I’ll check out Wallflower too.

    I blog less in winter because it’s just too cold to come out to the computer; summer I’m more likely to get up and do things early!

  8. What great books! Sounds good to me!

    Happy reading!!

    Here is my ​post

  9. I don’t know if it’s summer per se, but I definitely find myself taking small blogging breaks now and then. It’s nice not to feel a lot of pressure to post all the time. The weather hasn’t been too bad here, either, so there are lots of reasons to be outdoors instead of inside at the computer.

    I bet the AS King book is going to be good. I haven’t heard much about that one yet. And A Million Miles Away sounds intriguing. I am a sucker for books with twins.

    Happy reading, Lucy!
