Mailbox Monday (48)

Another fabulous week for books! Although if you been at From L.A. to LA for any length of time you probably have a good idea which ones of these I'm most excited for. I'm linking up with Mailbox Monday which for September Beauty in the Ruins has stepped up to host.
Mailbox Monday
Purchased
Facing the Music by Nick Carter
As I'm writing this I'm almost finished with it, and I'm guessing by the time you read this I'll be finished. In a way it's different than I expected it to be, but I'm having a lot of fun with it.

For Review from the author
Adder in the Path by William Jensen
This is a historical fiction of the Mormon War, something I know nothing about, but hopefully will by the novel's end.

For Review from TLC Book Tours
Telegraph Avenue by Michael Chabon
I remember being curious about this one when it was first published, so I'm excited to be one its paperback tour. The book is huge though, so I'm guessing I have some late nights of reading ahead of me.

For Review from the publisher
Secret Storms by Julie Mannix von Zerneck and Kathy Hatfield
This is a memior of a woman who put her daughter up for adoption telling her story as well as her daughter's. It reminds me of a real life version of Emily Giffin's last book, so I'm curious to see how it compares.

What did you find in your mailbox this week? And when you read a similar story both in non-fiction and fiction, which do you tend to prefer?

  6. I saw Nick on Dr. Phil and he was openly talking about his substance abuse. So sad!
