Mailbox Independence Day
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.
I got one book last week, and I am very excited to read it:Two books came into my house last week, and both look very good:
The Innocents by Ace Atkins. This is the latest in Atkins's Quinn Colson series, which is new to me. It's praised as "Modern Southern gothic" with a magnetic hero,"crackling humor," muscular prose, etc., etc. I can't wait to dive in.
Sensing Light by Mark A. Jacobson. This new novel is based on the true story of doctors working on the front lines of the HIV/AIDS crisis in San Francisco, starting in 1979, before the disease was even identified. It sounds fascinating.
