Here at Mailbox Monday, we want to encourage participants to not only share the books they received, but to check out the books others have received.

To that end, we’ve decided to share “Books that Caught Our Eye” with you. Each week, LeslieSerena and Vicki  will each share 2 books that caught their eye from that week’s Mailbox Monday and share them here.

We encourage you to share the books that caught your eye in the comments.

Here are the books that caught our eye this week:

Leslie
1. Gemini  by Carol Cassella from Bibliophile by the Sea
A medical thriller with a morality tale, a mystery, and a love story. Sounds like a page turner to me.

2. Grain Power: Over 100 Delicious Gluten-Free Ancient Grain and Superblend Recipes  by Patricia Green and Carolyn Hemming at Library of Clean Reads.
I keep reading about how we should eliminate gluten but have no clue where to start. Who knew there were this many grains to cook with.

Serena
1. Queen Sugar: A Novel  by Natalie Baszile from Lori’s Reading Corner because I love those mother-daughter stories, and the unique story of inheriting a sugar cane farm in Louisiana is interesting.

2. The Lost Girls of Rome  by Donato Carrisi from Carol’s Notebook  because a grieving young widow seeking answers about her husband’s death ends up unwittingly entangled in an investigation in Italy.

Vicki
1. Side Effects May Vary by Julie Murphy…Posted by Laura @ Library Of Clean Reads
The idea of a sixteen year old who thinks she is dying getting revenge on those who have wronged her, sounds interesting enough. But then she goes into remission and has to face everyone and the things she’s done.

2. The Innocent Sleep by Karen Perry…Posted by Kathy @ Bermudaonion
I love psychological suspense, and this story is about a man who leaves his sleeping son at home alone to go get his wife’s birthday present that he left in a cafe. It’s only a short walk to the cafe so he thinks everything will be ok. But then, an earthquake hits and when he finally makes his way home through the mess, he finds his house is leveled and can’t find his son.

  1. The Innocent Sleep and Side Effects May Vary sound like awesome reads.

    Thanks for this feature. Sometimes, I don’t get the time to do the complete MM cycle of blogs, so it’s great that you pick out a few interesting books to showcase here. Great idea!
