Mailbox Monday is a place to share all the wonderful books that have come to live in your home– including paper books, e-books and audio books.
Mailbox Monday was started by Marcia, who is now blogging at A girl and her books. When Marcia was ready to move on from being the weekly host, she was kind enough to set up the Mailbox Monday Blog Tour,
Amy at Passages to the Past is this month’s host!
As for my mailbox:
Book for review:
An ages-old family secret breaches the boundaries between reality and magic in this fresh retelling of a classic fairy tale. When Berkeley student Will Taylor is introduced to the mysterious Feierabend sisters, he quickly falls for enigmatic Livvy, a chemistry major and accomplished chef. But Livvy’s family—vivacious actress Maddie, family historian Rose, and their mother, absent-minded Sylvia—are behaving strangely. The Feierabend women seem to believe that luck is their handmaiden, even though happiness does not necessarily follow. It is soon discovered that generations previous, the Feierabends made a contract with a powerful, otherworldly force, and it is up to Will and his best friend to unravel the riddle of this supernatural bargain in order to save Livvy from her predestined fate.
It’s finally happened. The author blurbs were actually enough to cause me to get a book! I received an e-mail about The Uncertain Places. It sounded quite interesting, but I was feeling a bit overwhelmed by the books I’d recently accepted for review. I was just about to decline, then I saw the blurbs by Ursula K. Le Guin and Patricia McKillip– first the names, then what they had to say. I read the description again, and decided I couldn’t miss this one.
