Middlesex by Jeffrey Eugenides. This Pulitzer Prize-winner has been on my TBR list for a while, but just became available to me through PBS (a great site for swapping and saving money). I'm looking forward to this critically-acclaimed read.
Murder is Everywhere.
FORTY-EIGHT X by Barry Pollack. This semi-SciFi/biological advancement/historical thriller takes on the idea of blending DNA to create the perfect soldier. Sure, the idea has been done before, but Pollack adds some unique spice to his work--think Alexand the Great, the Middle East, and the setting for 'The Shining.' I enjoyed this read and look forward to seeing what else Pollack will come up with. (Disclaimer: This book was sent to me for a blog tour the author was conducting. I was in no way influenced by the fact that this book was free. It had flaws, just like every other book, but it was a good read.)
Mailbox Monday is conducted by Marcia at The Printed Page. What's in your mailbox?
