Mailbox Monday


Thanks for joining me for Mailbox Monday! MM was created by Marcia, who graciously hosted it for a long, long time, before turning it into a touring event (details here).

Crystal at I Totally Paused is hosting in November.  Crystal reviews books from a variety of genres including mysteries, YA, historical fiction, and classics, and also blogs about pop culture and life as she sees it.  Please visit her blog and say hello.

Two books came into my house last week.  While they couldn't be more different, they both look really interesting.

Sinful Folk by Ned Hayes.  The book is due out in January, but it looks like you can get the kindle edition now.

Sinful Folk is a "novel of the Middle Ages" based on real events in England in 1377.  When five children died in a house fire, a group of villagers set out to travel over 200 miles in midwinter to seek justice from the King in London.  It's part mystery, part survival story, part pilgrimage.  Maybe a cross between Chaucer's Canterbury Tales and Game of Thrones?

Watch the trailer for Sinful Folk.

Report from the Interior by Paul Auster.  This is a new memoir from the author of The New York Trilogy and, more recently, another memoir, Winter Journal.
