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. Mailbox Monday has now returned to its permanent home where you can link to your MM post.

Three very different books came into my house last week:

Baker's Blues by Judith Ryan Hendricks. This is the third book in Hendrick’s Bread Alone Trilogy. Now I want to make a weekend project of reading all three of them.

Singing with the Sirens: Overcoming the Long-Term Effects of Childhood Sexual Exploitation by Ellyn Roberts Bell and Stacey Ault Bell, published by She Writes Press. The authors address the long term complex trauma that results from the sexual abuse and exploitation of girls and young women.

In my law practice, I work with adults who were sexually abused as children, so I want to read this to see if I can recommend it to some of my women clients.

Hiroshima and Nagasaki: An Illustrated History, Anthology, and Guide by Magnus Bartlett and Robert O'Connor, published by Odyssey Books & Maps.

This is definitely the "unique and eclectic book" it promises on the back cover, with a breadth of information on these twin cities, beginning with ancient Japan, through the WWII bombings, to a guide for modern visitors. It is packed with art reproductions, photos, illustrations, unusual graphics, maps, historical documents, essays, and quotes.


  1. They are quite different. Baker's Blues is on my TBR list.

  2. I don't know that I've seen The Bread Alone Trilogy before. But the cover of Baker's Blues looks delicious and makes me want to pick up the series. Happy reading!

  3. All three look very interesting. I love that you're reading Singing with the Sirens to consider recommending it to your adult clients who were sexually abused as children. Very thoughtful.

  4. The Hiroshima book is the most intriguing in this list; i love when books talk history and incorporate more than text.

  5. Love the cover on Baker's Blues. I am guessing it is really good.

    ENJOY all of your books and your reading week.
