In My Mailbox: Week 4

I received a few books for review last week.

wtf by Peter Lerangis

Two parties, six alternating points of view, and three letters that says it all–WTF!

Sunrise in a Garden of Love & Evil by Barbara Monajem

Bayou Gavotte, Louisiana, has a post office, a city hall, and an active PTA. It has magnolias and passion vine. It also has fetish clubs. And vampires.

A flowering hunger….
And a taste of violence to come

The Hand That First Held Mine by Maggie O’Farrell

In the thrilling, underground world of bohemian post-war London, Lexie Sinclair is making an extraordinary life for herself. Taken up by magazine editor Innes Kent, she learns to be a reporter, to know art and artists, to embrace her life fully and with a deep love at the center of it.

Later, in present-day London, a young painter named Elina dizzily navigates the first weeks of motherhood. Her boyfriend, Ted, traumatized by nearly losing her in labor, begins to recover lost memories. He cannot place them. But as they become more disconcerting and happen more frequently, we discover that something connects these two stories– these two women– something that becomes all the more heartbreaking and beautiful as they all hurtle toward its revelation.

A stunning portrait of motherhood and the artist’s life in all their terror and glory, Maggie O’Farrell’s newest novel is a gorgeous inquiry into the ways we make and unmake our lives, who we know ourselves to be, and how even our most accidental legacies connect us.

WTF looks and sounds very weird but interesting. Sunrise in the Garden of Love & Evil I’m excited to read. And The Hand That First Held Mine sounds like a heart-warming read.

These all came from publishers and will be read soon. 🙂
