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:
I love a good ghost story, and this one sounds like it could be fun set in 1970s England, a new house in a village, and a 15-yr-old girl. Strange things happen in the house and in the village. How could you resist?
This sounds like a dark YA novel; something that’s far-fetched but exciting. A young lady begins training to take on the drug dealers that forced a drug on her best friend, who died. It’s a revenge novel, and how the best laid plans of revenge can get too complicated.
Dinner with the Smileys: One Military Family, One Year of Heroes, and Lessons for a Lifetime by Sarah Smiley
I saw this @ BookNAround
When I read the blurb I knew I had to put this on my tbr list. The author had a great idea and I love that she made it a reality! She invited a different guest (from senators to school teachers, artists to professional athletes) to dinner for every week her husband was deployed oversees. This book tells the story. Sounds interesting doesn’t it?
The Thirty Nine Steps by John Buchan
I saw this @ Reading, Writing, Working, Playing
The Thirty Nine Steps is a fast paced, all action, classic adventure novel which is credited with being one of the earliest examples of the ‘man-on-the-run’ thriller. It spawned a series of film, TV and theatre adaptations including, notably, the 1935 Alfred Hitchcock film.
I’ve never read a classic espionage, so I can’t wait to read it.
