Summer is back with a vengeance here! It’s much too hot to do very much at all except read (it’s even too hot to walk to the shops at lunchtime). Fortunately, there are quite a few good new releases out and some lovely people sending them to me! Thank you!
2014 means a new home for Mailbox Monday. Originally created by Marcia of To Be Continued, you can find the linky list all year round at Mailbox Monday. Join in the fun there!
I received a lovely package from Bloomsbury Sydney in the mail – a copy of Terms and Conditions by Robert Glancy (my second copy, but this book is going to be HOT – so many people have asked to borrow it, so I don’t mind) – I love the final cover and of course, the footnotes. TaraShea Nesbit’s The Wives of Los Alamos is so good, I read it in between sessions of a writer’s festival. A novel of the women who went to Los Alamos on a secret project, this has great historical perspective.
The trend for pretty covers continued with Harlequin sending a copy of City of Jasmine by Deanna Raybourn. Set in the 1920s, the book involves a female aviator, a disappearing husband and a trip to Damascus to find out the truth. This will be my first Deanna Raybourn, which I’m really looking forward to.
Is the weather keeping you from getting out and about?
