In My Mailbox (34)

It's been a few weeks since I've been able to participate, but I'm happy to be back linking up with The Story Siren for In My Mailbox. So let's get to the books, shall we?

First You Try Everything by Jane McCafferty
I've actually already read this one (review to come!). I wound up enjoying it, although it wasn't quite what I expected. It's main story is that of a marriage ending, and it's definitely one that makes you think.

Won in a Giveaway from Silly Little Mischief
The Discovery of Jeanne Baret by Gynis Ridley
After reading Linda's review of this it definitely sounded like one I'd enjoy and I'm glad to have won her giveaway. It's a biography of a woman who sailed around the world disguised as a teen-aged boy in the 1700s. I love reading anything historical, and have a feeling I'm going to enjoy this one quite a bit.
