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 week I have two weeks of books to share – hope your mailboxes have been full of fall book goodness.

Books in the mail:

Don’t Fail Me Now by Una LaMarche – This is a diversity book club pick and it’s about family and love as a girl who goes on a road trip to see her dying father.

Crosstown Crush by Cara McKenna and Ever After (Love to the Rescue #3) by Rachel Lacey – I won these great books from Reading in Pajamas. I’ve heard good things about Crosstown Crush. Ever After is about the romance between an animal rights activist and the deputy who falls for her.

Dumplin’ by Julie Murphy – This is my current read and it’s so good! It’s about Willowdean, a girl who wants to find her body confidence again by entering a beauty pageant. There is also romance, friendship, and Dolly Parton in this entertaining read.

Dark Wild Night by Christina Lauren – I can’t wait to read the next book in the Wild Seasons series.

An Infinite Number of Parallel Universes by Randy Ribay – This debut is about four gamers who take their friendship to real life on a cross-country road trip.

Why Not Me? by Mindy Kaling – I love Mindy so I’ve already read this one- so good!

Review eBooks:

Pretending to Dance by Diane Chamberlain – Molly and her husband want to adopt a child but Molly’s secret past threatens their future.

The Leaving Season by Cat Jordan – Middie is left to pick up the pieces when the unimaginable happens.

Romancing the Dark in the City of Light by Ann Jacobus – An American girl goes to boarding school in Paris (after being kicked out of four boarding schools) and finds herself in a love triangle while she struggles with mental illness.

Symptoms of Being Human by Jeff Garvin – A gender-fluid teen starts an anonymous blog to share their experiences. The blog goes viral and Riley’s secret identity might not be a secret for long.

Thicker Than Water by Kelly Fiore – This suspense novel is about how drug addiction affects one family’s lives.

Shade Me by Jennifer Brown – The first book in the Nikki Kill series introduces a teen with synesthesia.

Thanks so much to: Penguin Razorbill, Reading in Pajamas, Merit Press, St. Martin’s Press, and HarperTeen.

  12. Hi Lucy,

    What a great haul of books and from such a diverse range of genres.

    My choice of cover art this week has to go to ‘Shade Me’. I only discovered synaesthesia last week and included it in my Wondrous Words Wednesday post, so I can appreciate the relevance of that particular cover image.

    For a place on my own shelf. I would choose ‘Pretending To Dance’. My mother-in-law introduced me to Diane Chamberlain, as this was the first author she downloaded to her new Kindle on her 80th birthday and she has read just about every one of her books since.

    Thanks for sharing and I hope that you enjoy all your new books 🙂

    Why Not Me is on my wishlist and so is Dumplin’. Such great pile of books. Hope you enjoy them all. 🙂

  14. Ahh you have Dumpin’ and Why Not Me?! I’m excited about both of those 🙂
