*Mail Call* September 21-25

Another week has passed so it's time for another edition of mail call, where I show you all the lovely books I got in the mail this past week. The deliveries have been slowing down lately, but that's partially because I've been busy lately with proofreading and not getting any of my Goodreads wins read and reviewed (which increases the rate at which I win new books.) I'm hoping to find a balance between the two soon. I may or may not succeed with that. But without further ado, here's this weeks book mail.

F You, Box (And Other Observations of my Cat's Inner Dialogue) by Katie Cook


Got a pillow? He'll steal it. Eating a turkey sandwich? HEY—hand it over! Meet the original grumpy cat. He's codependent, potty-mouthed, and pissed off . . . with the litter box, the pen, the couch, and (most of all) YOU! This cranky kitty's bad attitude and existential woes—captured in a series of hysterical postcards—will ring true to anyone who's ever dealt with a disgruntled feline. Cat lovers (and haters) will LOL at this totally true look at the trials and tribulations of living with Mother Nature's most irritable miracle.

(I've actually already read this book because it's short. Look for my review in the next day or two.)

The Saturday Night School of Beauty by Marsha Mehran


A moving tale of exile, friendship, and love from the bestselling author of Pomegranate Soup.

In the wake of the Iranian revolution, Zadi Heirati, a single mother, flees to Buenos Aires with her young daughter. She decides to do what she knows best and opens a beauty salon, but as she meets her new neighbors and discovers their shared passion for poetry, the idea develops into much more than a job. The inhabitants of her apartment building form an eclectic community: a sick ex-prisoner and his daughter; a promising medical student; a timid hairdresser; a newlywed couple with a dark past; a young revolutionary; an eccentric pilgrim of Mecca; and at the heart of the group, Zadi, whose humble small business becomes a spiritual hub where she hosts weekly readings of Persian poetry.

Drawn together by the revolution in their homeland, these neighbors share words that inspire each to turn inward and discover beauty long buried. At once familiar and extraordinary, this story weaves disparate lives together into a tapestry of unique grace, wit, and lyricism.

That's it for another edition of Mail Call. The theme this week seems to be "long title, short synopsis." I think I'm most interested in reading The Saturday Night School of Beauty from this batch (because I've already read F You, Box). Which book are you most interested in reading my review on? - Katie
