Mailbox Monday - May 4

Mailbox Monday is a meme started by Marcia of To Be Continued. Mailbox Monday is the gathering place for readers to share the books that came in their mailbox during the last week. It now has a permanent home at the Mailbox Monday blog.

Warning: Mailbox Monday can lead to envy, toppling TBR piles, and humongous wish lists.

I have been a very busy Realtor, so blogging has taken a short nap for a bit. I just had a closing on April 24 and will have three more coming this month. So, I ask that you give me a bit of grace in keeping up with this blog and the many others I run or contribute to.

I am currently reading Dead Reckoning by Caitlin Rother. I have always loved true crime books. This book is a very overdue book review, so be on the look for that soon.

A couple weeks ago, '89 Walls by Katie Pierson arrived.

College is not in the cards for Seth. He spends his minimum wage on groceries and fakes happiness to distract his mom from the MS they both know will kill her. It’s agony to carry around a frayed love note for a girl who’s both out of his league and beneath his dignity.

Quinn’s finishing high school on top. But that cynical, liberal guy in her social studies class makes her doubt her old assumptions. Challenging the rules now, though, would a) squander her last summer at home, b) antagonize her conservative dad, and c) make her a hypocrite.

Seth and Quinn’s passionate new romance takes them both by surprise. They keep it a secret: it’s too early to make plans and too late not to care. But it’s 1989. As politics suddenly get personal, they find themselves fighting bare-fisted for their beliefs—and each other—in the clear light of day.

This review will appear at The Children's and Teens' Book Connection on July 22, since that is where I post my young adult reviews.

What did you receive in your mailbox? I hope you enjoy it.
