Flight of Dreams by Ariel Lawhon +coasters (from Doubleday)

On the evening of May 3, 1937, Emilie Imhof boards the Hindenburg. As the only female crewmember, Emilie has access to the entire airship, from the lavish dining rooms and passenger suites to the gritty engine cars and control room. She hears everything, but with rumors circulating about bomb threats, Emilie’s focus is on maintaining a professional air . . . and keeping her own plans under wraps.
     What Emilie can’t see is that everyone—from the dynamic vaudeville acrobat to the high-standing German officer—seems to be hiding something.

Gates of Evangeline by Hester Young (from GP Putnam’s Sons)

When New York journalist and recently bereaved mother Charlotte “Charlie” Cates begins to experience vivid dreams about children she’s sure that she’s lost her mind. Yet these are not the nightmares of a grieving parent, she soon realizes. They are messages and warnings that will help Charlie and the children she sees, if only she can make sense of them.

The History Major by Michael Phillip Cash + notepad & highlighter (from the author)

After a vicious fight with her boyfriend followed by a night of heavy partying, college freshman Amanda Greene wakes up in her dorm room to find things are not the same as they were yesterday. She can’t quite put her finger on it. She’s sharing her room with a peculiar stranger. Amanda discovers she’s registered for classes she would never choose with people that are oddly familiar. An ominous shadow is stalking her. Uncomfortable memories are bubbling dangerously close to her fracturing world, propelling her to an inevitable collision between fantasy and reality. Is this the mother of all hangovers or is something bigger happening?

Did anything fun arrive in your mailbox this week?

  1. Hi Stacy! Ooooo… I have an awesome new pile! Lost Lake by Sarah Addison Allen (love, love, love her!), Looking For Me by Beth Hoffman (loved Saving Cee Cee Honeycutt), Dress Shop of Dreams by Menna Van Praag (new author for me), and Plant Dreaming Deep by May Sarton. Just finished Goodnight June and I can’t decide which one to read next. I’m looking forward to your reviews on Gates of Evangeline and The History Major!
