Mailbox Monday

What books came into your house last week? Three books came into mine:

Tangier by Stephen Holgate. This debut novel goes back and forth between the modern day story of a "disgraced Washington power broker" and the mystery he sets out to solve about his father, a French diplomat who supposedly died in a Vichy prison during WWII. It looks fantastic!

Steve Holgate is giving an author talk at Browser Bookshop in Olympia, Washington this Friday, June 23, 2017 at 7:00 pm.

The Secret Speech by Tom Rob Smith. This is the second book in his Child 44 Trilogy. I read and loved Child 44. The third book, Agent 6, is already on my TBR shelf.

The Monsters of Templeton by Lauren Groff. I've seen this around and found a copy at my local consignment shop. I know nothing about it. Is it good?

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.


  1. I've heard of The Monsters of Templeton but haven't read it. My GR friends who read it (4) rated it from 2 to 4 stars. Hope you enjoy it!

  2. The Secret Speech looks good.

    ENJOY all of your books and reading week.

  3. I looked up Child 44 and this series sounds very intense. I like the cover of Tangier.
    Hope you enjoy your thrillers! Happy Reading!

  4. I loved the Child 44 trilogy. And The Monsters of Templeton is the only Groff I have read. I thought it was okay, but it didn't inspire me to read any more. I do know that her Fates and Furies was very well thought of.
