Mailbox Monday

20 Jul

I’m participating in Mailbox Monday from Marcia at The Printed Page.

Four books this week!  I need to block out more reading time.

Admission (Hardcover) by Jean Hanff KorelitzBenny & Shrimp (Paperback) by Katarina MazettiSugar Time (Paperback) by Jane AdamsThe Invention of Everything Else (Paperback) by Samantha Hunt

Admission by Jean Hanff Korelitz
is for a buddy read with Jennifer at The Literate Housewife. We’re looking at reading it (and talking about it!) during the first week of August. I’ve been interested in this book since I first heard about it, and I’m excited to be reading it and to try a buddy read.Thank you to Hachette Book Group.

Benny & Shrimp by Katarina Mazetti came to me via FSB media. It looks like a very nice book. As I’ve said before, there are times that I really like a nice book, and I’m glad to have this one ready to go.

I found The Invention of Everything Else by Samantha Hunt via the Shelf Awareness newsletter and (as a math/science geek) was very excited about a book about inventors and their world. Thank you to Houghton Mifflin Harcourt for sending me this book.

I heard about Sugar Time by Jane Adams through Bostick Communications, and was intrigued. I like how it sounds a little off the usual track.

Hopefully you’ll be hearing more from me about these books soon!
