Mailbox Monday (63)

I've been having a fabulous few weeks of Mailbox Mondays lately. Of course that means I need to find the time to read up all the books I've picked up recently, but there are worse problems to have.

For Review from TLC Book Tours
The Taste of Apple Seeds by Katharina Hegena
This book was first written in German and is only now being translated to English. It's about a woman who inherits her grandmother's house in the country and then must decide what to do with it. Normally this would seem to be a cute chick lit type book, but I think the fact that it's German brings a bit of surprise to it.

For Review from the Publisher
Everybody Else's Girl by Sarah Sawyers-Lovett
This is a memoir about a girl growing up in poverty with a life of violence in Virginia. While I know books like this can be depressing, there's just something that seems to draw me towards them.

What did you find in your mailbox this week?


  1. I haven't heard about any of these books but they sound intriguing and I would like to know more about them! Can't wait for your review :)

  2. I haven't heard of either of these books either. They both sound intriguing - especially the first one!

    I picked "Tells the Wolves I'm Home" from the library. I started it yesterday and it's good so far!

  3. The Taste of Apple Seeds sounds like a good story and I like the cover. The other cover seems kind of sad, but it sounds like it would fit the plot. Hope you enjoy!

  4. Both books look good to me, especially Everybody Else's Girl. Enjoy!

  5. I see some great books here in your mailbox! Have a wonderful reading ahead!
