Teaser Tuesday: A Bigger Piece of Blue by Dan T. Cox




Lilly loved trilliums. She knew that when they finally appeared, there would be no going back to the hunker-down days of winter

--from "Splendid Purpose" in A Bigger Piece of Blue by Dan T. Cox.  That phrase "hunker-down days" is terrific!

Cox's debut collection of short stories bracingly honest and sometimes pretty raw. I like the back-of-the-cover description that says:

"The stories touch on love gone sideways, love rediscovered, and love everlasting."

A Bigger Piece of Blue got a good early review on Kirkus.

I mangled the opening sentences in my recent Book Beginning post, so please go back to here and read what the opening really looks like!




Teaser Tuesdays is hosted by The Purple Booker, where you can find the official rules for this weekly event.

Mailbox Monday




I was showing off Powell's Books to out of town friends last week, so got a few new (to me) books for myself. What books came into your house last week?



Today Will Be Differentby Maria Semple



The Red and the Green by Iris Murdoch



My Enemy's Enemy by Kingsley Amis

And one book I saw on Instagram and had to order because they didn't have it at Powell's. I got my copy from Book Depository.



Britain by the Book: A Curious Tour of Our Literary Landscape by Oliver Tearle




Thanks for joining me for Mailbox Monday, a weekly "show & tell" blog event where participants share the books they acquired the week before. Visit the Mailbox Monday website to find links to all the participants' posts and read more about Books that Caught our Eye.

Mailbox Monday is graciously hosted by Leslie of Under My Apple Tree, Serena of Savvy Verse & Wit, and Vicki of I'd Rather Be at the Beach.
