Mailbox Monday (83)

I may have missed posting my Mailbox Monday last week (more on that tomorrow), but this week, I'm back...
Mailbox Monday
From Goodreads
Will You Love Me by Cathy Glass
I hadn't heard of this author before winning this but turns out she's written a number of books. This one, like many of her others, is about one of the children she raised. This daughter she adopted although it looks like most books are about her foster children. I have a feeling this will be a bit heartbreaking, but we'll see if I wind up picking up any of her other books after finishing it.

From Paperback Swap
The Birth House by Ami McKay
I've heard such great things about this book. Plus I loved The Virgin Cure, the only other book I've read by this author. I'm not completely sure what this is about, although it looks to be a historical fiction during WWI. Needless to say, I'm excited about it.

For Review from TLC Book Tours
2 A.M. at The Cat's Pajamas by Marie-Helene Bertino
This one is about a nine-year-old aspiring jazz singer who goes looking for The Cat's Pajamas, a famous jazz club in Philadelphia. I was actually thinking this was historical fiction, but I think it actually takes place in the modern day. Either way it sounds like a lot of fun, and hopefully it's one I'll enjoy.

Cancel the Wedding by Carolyn Dingman
This one looks like the perfect summer chick-lit type from the cover, but I'm not sure that's actually the case. Instead it takes place after the death of the main character's mother, where she takes a road trip to the South with her sister to scatter her mother's ashes. This definitely hits close to home for me, but I'm hoping it will be more healing than anything.

What did you find in your mailbox this week?

  1. I bought The Pearl that Broke Its Shell as Amber raved about it and it was a nook daily find for $1.99 this week so I couldn't resist! I hope that Cancel the Wedding isn't too tough of a read for you... I can see how reading books like that would intensify some of your emotions...

  6. They all look like great books, although I think I'd pick Cancel the Wedding if I had to choose just one. Happy reading!
