Mailbox Monday

mmb-300x282Mailbox Monday is the gathering place for readers to share the books that came in their mailbox during the last week.

It was created by Marcia @ A Girl and Her Books but now has a permanent home here


 

 

 

 

This is the first time I've participated in this meme. This week I got a proof copy of Another Night, Another Day by Sarah Rayner in the post from Picador:

 

Another Night, Another DayThree people, each crying out for help

There’s Karen, about to lose her father; Abby, whose son has autism and needs constant care, and Michael, a family man on the verge of bankruptcy. As each sinks under the strain, they’re brought together at Moreland’s Psychiatric Clinic.

Here, behind closed doors, they reveal their deepest secrets, confront and console one another and share plenty of laughs. But how will they cope when a new crisis strikes?

 

 

 

Also two for my Kindle from Netgalley:

 

The Three

The Three by Sarah Lotz (which I'm now reading):

Black Thursday. The day that will never be forgotten. The day that four passenger planes crash, at almost exactly the same moment, at four different points around the globe.
There are only four survivors. Three are children, who emerge from the wreckage seemingly unhurt. But they are not unchanged.
And the fourth is Pamela May Donald, who lives just long enough to record a voice message on her phone.
A message that will change the world.
The message is a warning.
 

 

 

Mother IslandMother Island by Bethan Roberts

 

One warm June morning, Maggie Wichelo, a lonely young woman, arrives at the comfortable Oxford house in which she works as a nanny. Everything appears normal.
But this is the morning on which Maggie will abduct Samuel, loading him into a hired car, and driving him to a remote boathouse on the island where she spent her teenage years: Anglesey, known to the locals as M�n, Mam Cymru, or the Mother of Wales.

 

 

 

American RustI also treated myself to the kindle edition of American Rust by Philipp Meyer which I've been meaning to read for some time.
