Mailbox Monday for June 10

Into my mailbox this week has come the following books:
Down and Out in Bugtussle THE MAD FAT ROAD TO HAPPINESS by Stephanie McAffe which is about a new to me heroine from Mississippi. “New York Times bestselling author Stephanie McAfee delivers another irreverent, laugh-out-loud page-turner about the (mis)adventures of plus-size spitfire Graciela “Ace” Jones.”
Revenge Wears Prada THE DEVIL RETURNS by Lauren Weisberger. “For the millions of fans eagerly anticipating an update on Weiserger’s beloved characters, the wait is finally over. The devil is back. Revenge Wears Prada: The Devil Returns is a scintillating sequel that puts readers right back into the fast-paced New York City world of now successful journalist Andy Sachs, her partner in crime Emily Charlton, the notorious and colorful Nigel, and of course…the devil herself.”
 

When I received the Persephone Biannually several weeks ago, I had to order a book they had highlighted for Spring/Summer 2013: Heat Lightening by Helen Hull. And so I highlight its arrival here.

 

“It is the summer after the Great Crash of 1929 and, as in so many Persephone books, everything happens and nothing happens; however, a book which is simply about family life turns out to be unputdownable.  ‘Although Heat Lightning focuses on domestic life,’ writes the American academic Patricia McClelland Miller in her Persephone Preface, ‘it is, at its core, a novel of ideas, even though not all of the book’s readers would have recognised it as such.”
I hope that these books intrigue you, and add to the list from what you have received within your own mailbox. As always, thanks for stopping by!

  1. I just heard a very funny news story about an embattled academic accused of falsifying her degrees on grant applications… the story said that her staff organized a group outing to see 'The Devil Wears Prada' because the Meryl Streep character was so much like their fearless leader. Ouch! I don't think I'd read the sequel but I did like the movie.

  2. I've never actually read The Devil Wears Prada, or actually anything bu Lauren Weisberger. But she's definitely an author I've been meaning to check out.
