So another Mailbox Monday rolls around as things return to full pace – school returns soon, but at least there’s Australia Day to look forward to on the 26th! I am in the middle of a busy working period, so had to rely solely on mailbox deliveries for books this week. This is perfectly acceptable, as I got some lovely ones to read in those few snatched seconds of peace!
Grace Grows by Shelle Sumners looks like perfect summer reading and I love how the main character is a textbook editor (I think that would be a cool job). A Teaspoon of Earth and Sea by Dina Nayeri is set in Iran. A tale of twins separated, Saba grows up alone in a turbulent time.
My second parcel came all the way from New York (from Random House – thanks for sending Down Under!). Two non-fiction books which sound really interesting:
Quiet by Susan Cain
about introverts (my kindred) and Becky Aikman’s Saturday Night Widows is about a group of young widows trying to make sense of everything that has happened.
One Little White Lie by Loretta Hill (novella) should be good as I’m enjoying The Girl in the Hard Hat at the moment. Just Breathe is written by crime writer Jaye Ford and I’m looking forward to more rural romance with Beneath Outback Skies by Alissa Callen (I’m also reading Fifty Bales of Hay – agricultural erotica by Rachael Johns).
