Powering through the months here! Our new Mailbox Monday host this month is Crystal at I totally paused! – please do share your new bookish acquisitions!
I had a pretty hectic week last week that involved some unexpected things, plus I was also working extra hours. I was very, very glad when Saturday came and I treated myself to some new books. These are all from the Penguin Street Art series.
Lights Out for the Territory by Iain Sinclair is a non-fiction book looking at nine different routes across London.
Then We Came to the End by Joshua Ferris is about a group of work colleagues and the things that are happening to them.
The Believers by Zoe Heller is about a family confronting a secret after a long marriage.
What a Carve Up by Jonathan Coe is about a family dynasty where things are going to turn rather bad…
I love the covers – I think one of the things that will have people buying books is a striking cover. Do you agree? I’m hoping to collect a few more in this series to look lovely on my shelves.
What did you receive in the mail over the previous week?
