Mailbox Monday

These are a few of the books which have come into my mailbox this autumn:
The Rosie Project by Graham Simsion (thanks to Simon and Schuster):
“Arrestingly endearing and entirely unconventional, Graeme Simsion’s distinctive debut will resonate with anyone who has ever tenaciously gone after life or love in the face of great challenges. The Rose Project is a rare find: a book that restores our optimism in the power of human connection.”
Mother, Mother by Koren Zailckas (thanks to Random House):
“From Koren Zailckas, author of the iconic memoir SMASHED: an electrifying debut  novel about a family being torn apart by the woman who claim to love them most.”
The Genius of Dogs by Brian Hare (thanks to Penguin):
“Brian Hare, dog researcher, evolutionary anthropologist, and founder of the Duke Canine Cognition Center, and Vanessa Woods offer revolutionary new insights into dog intelligence and the interior lives or our smartest pets.”
The Vintage Teacup Club by Vanessa Greene (thanks to Penguin): 
“Three women’s lives are about to change because of a few delicate pieces of china…”
Accused by Lisa Scottoline (thanks to Macmillan): 
“New York Times bestselling and Edgar Award-winning author Lisa Scottoline revolutionized crime fiction when she introduced her all female law firm of Rosato & Associates, thrilling readers with her twisty, fast-paced plots and capturing their hears with her cast of strong and relatable female characters. Now Bennie Rosato, Mary DiNunzio, Judy Carrier, and Anne Murphy are back with all cylinders firing in Accused.
I Dare Me by Luanne Cahn:
“Lu Ann Cahn is the author of the inspirational memoir I Dare Me, an entertaining look back on a year that changed everything for her. The book grew out of a blog called One Year of Firsts, which chronicled this veteran journalist, mother and survivor’s daily adventures as she pushed herself to try something new for every single day–an effort to get her life “unstuck,” as her daughter put it.”
Each book is so unique and so promising. I hardly know where to begin! What did you find in your mailbox? Have you read any of these?

  1. I just saw The Rosie project translated into Romanian in a bookstore here and it seemed quite interesting, so I would probably start with that, if I were you 🙂


  2. It's received such accolades, and yet Tony's comment down below has given me reason to pause…now I'll have to read it to form my own opinion. Although I do tend to take the view that the masses have never been correct, and if everyone loves it? Probably I won't. 🙂


  3. I enjoyed The Rosie Project. Was it a difficult or challenging read? No. Was it funny, charming, hopeful, and heart warming? Yes. Different strokes for different folks I guess…uh oh…now I'm a cliché. Seriously, I like a romance story and I'm interested in the exploration of issues around Autism and Asperger's.


  4. Great haul! I have The Rosie Projet on my shelf and despite the great reviews I have been a bit hesitant to tackle it (not sure why? maybe I'm afraid to be disappointed?)
    Enjoy your new books and happy reading!
