Mailbox Monday

4 Comments

Mailbox Monday is the gathering place for readers to share the books that came in their mailbox during the last week. Warning: Mailbox Monday can lead to envy, toppling TBR piles and humongous wish lists.

We’re busy with soccer practice and swim practices, and our daughter’s first swim meet of the winter is in October. We’re looking forward to it. School seems to be going better this year for her with no major issues now that the “mean” girl is no longer in her class. I hope everyone has been reading some great books this week. I recently listened to Educated on audio, and the story is mind-boggling. Has anyone here read it?

Please share what books you received in your mailboxes this week in the linky below:

Stop by later this week for the Books That Caught Our Eye.

  1. Glad to hear school is going well! I had mixed feelings about Educated. I enjoyed it, but felt the story was a bit over-curated. It left me feeling a bit manipulated.

    • I felt like the story was so one-sided and that there was no middle ground, but perhaps that’s because she still was wrangling with the issues she had with her family and there wasn’t enough distance for her to provide a more balanced view. I just felt at points like I as being bombarded by awful things that happened to her.

  2. Educated is a story that I have been interested in but haven’t picked up yet. Her situation sounds disturbing.
    I hope school does go better for your daughter this year.
