Mailbox Monday- November 2

Mailbox Monday
is hosted by Marcia at The Printed Page.
We share what books that we found in our mailboxes last week.

Children of Dust: A Memoir of Pakistan
**courtesy of Caitlin at FSB Associates
I'm always interested in reading about someone's life in another country and this sounds fascinating!!

Ali Eteraz's Children of Dust is a spellbinding portrayal of a life that few Americans can imagine. From his schooling in a madrassa in Pakistan to his teenage years as a Muslim American in the Bible Belt, and back to Pakistan to find a pious Muslim wife, this lyrical, penetrating saga from a brilliant new literary voice captures the heart of our universal quest for identity.

How to Catch and Keep a Vampire: A Step-by-Step guide to Loving the Bad and Beautiful
