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, Leslie, Serena 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:
1. North of Boston by Elisabeth Elo from By Book or By Crook and Chaotic Compendiums
It had me with the description: “A gripping literary thriller, North of Boston combines the atmospheric chills of Jussi Adler-Olsen with the gritty mystery of Laura Lippman”.
2. The Rule of Three by Eric Walters from Melissa’s Eclectic Bookshelf
I’m always ready for a good dystopian tale. In this one computers around the globe shut down in a viral catastrophe. Sounds like a disaster to me!
1. The Interrogation of Ashala Wolf by Ambelin Kwaymullina because it’s set in a different country and is dystopian, but also combines “supernatural” like people (the leader of the illegals who have unique abilities), which I found on The Reading Date.
2. Queen Sugar by Natalie Baszile found @ Fiction Books is about a woman, whose father leaves her an 800 acre sugarcane farm. Even though she knows nothing about growing sugar cane, she and her son leave Los Angeles and move to the farm in Louisiana. I love the idea of “starting over” in a new state and trying to make a living from a business you know nothing about, especially when all odds are against you in more ways than one.
