Below are the titles I received for review, purchased, or otherwise obtained last week. Warning: Mailbox Monday can lead to envy, toppling TBR piles and humongous wish lists!


Night Swim by Jessica Keener (for review)


The Ruins of Us by Keija Parssinen (for review)


All I Did was Shoot My Man by Walter Mosley (for review)

The Lonely Polygamist by Bradley Udall (Gift)

    I am really looking forward to reading The Lonely Polygamist! It's been on my wishlist for a long time. Then I read Ti's (Book Chatter) review of the book and I added it to my list of books I HAD to read. I'm going to talk to Heather about it now and read her review afterwards!
