My Mailbox!

These are the four books that I recieved that fit the foreign criteria for Bridge the Gap: England, Canada, Japan, and Turkey (I believe). I can't wait to read them!! You might remember I posted about Mercury Under My Tongue already, and I got an email offering a review well as some other random novels that are non-American. I OF COURSE accepted and here you go!

Leave your thoughts and I'll talk more in the comments:

The City in Crimson Cloak by Asli Erdogan

Vibrator by Mari Akasaka

Milk, Sulphate, and Alby Starvation by Martin Millar

Mercury Under my Tongue by Sylvain Trudel

Sharon: Thanks, I think I'll start with Mercury. It just looks too good to wait too TOO long. LOL

Harmony: Yep, they are all translated into English.

Carrie: I know, right? Keep an eye out for the reviews.

Kristi: Thanks!! Well, I think the cover on Amazon is different then mine...mine is like Vibrator written sideways with a lot of lines and colors. I'm not sure what it all means, but it looks cool!
