In My Mailbox #6
In other news, I was selected to be part of Book Trib's new Review Crew! Yet another source of books to make my shelves collapse.
J-Boys: Kazuo's World, Tokyo, 1965 by Shogo Oketani (LibraryThing Early Reviewers)
Shadow of a Quarter Moon by Eileen Clymer Schwab (from the author)
North Carolina historical fiction!
One Day I Will Write About This Place by Binyavanga Wainaina (GoodReads First Look)
Salvation City by Sigrid Nunez
I have no idea where this came from, but it's some kind of post-apocalyptic novel involving conservative fundamentalist religions, so I'm quite interested.
Grave Expectations by Charles Dickens and Sherri Browning Erwin (Gallery and Pocket Tours)
Won from The Book Cellar:
Shut Out by Kody Keplinger
Not normally something I'd be interested in, but it's a retelling of Lysistrata.
Shelter by Harlan Coben
Fateful by Claudia Gray
I actually didn't realize this one was a historical novel about the Titanic until I got it in the mail, so I'm very excited about it.
Won from elsewhere:
The Fountain Overflows by Rebecca West (thanks, Reflections From the Hinterland!)
Another NYRB added to my collection. :) So far there's only three, but it'll grow!
Glow by Amy Kathleen Ryan (thanks, Lady Critic's Library!)
This came with a XL t-shirt for Beautiful Creatures. Should fit my 5'2", 90 lb. body just fine, lol.
