Mailbox Monday

Welcome to Mailbox Monday! Each week we share which books we got in the mail, but be warned: Mailbox Monday can lead to towering TBR piles and out-of-control wish lists! Originally hosted by Marcia at The Printed Page, Mailbox Monday is on tour. This month's host is Lady Q of Let Them Read Books.


Last week brought two new additions to the TBR pile. First to arrive was a copy of Lou Aronica's upcoming release, Blue. It's a story of three very different characters with a little fantasy thrown in, and I'm looking forward to immersing myself in it.


Also in my mailbox last week was a copy of Nan D. Arnold's upcoming book, Merry Acres Widows Waltz. It's been a while since I've read a book with a little mystery thrown in there, so I'm looking forward to this one as well.

That's it for my mailbox. What was in yours?

  3. I received for review Out of Touch by Brandon Tietz from the author.

    Twenty-four-year-old Aidin, a wealthy socialite and self-proclaimed "club god," lives a magazine life based on decadence and excess that includes drugs, sex, and gourmet food. It's a life based on surfaces in a place where the surface is all that matters. His therapist later describes him as a materialistic drug addict bent on promiscuity with self-esteem and identity issues.One morning, after a night of heavy partying, Aidin awakes completely vacant of any sensation. He can't feel temperature. He can't feel pressure. He can't feel anything. After a near-fatal stint in denial, he seeks the help of Dr. Paradies, a therapist whose methods are far from conventional. She provides him with a new addiction in the form of a life list--a litany of activities to accomplish. As Aidin completes his list, he discovers talents he never knew he possessed, such as the ability to quickly learn new languages, an IQ off the charts, and amazing physical stamina.With these new discoveries, he questions his doctor's intentions. When Aidin digs for the truth, will he slip back into his addictive habits? Or is there truly a conspiracy underway, as he suspects? The answer forces him to make a life-altering decision.
