Whoa, December already! At least we’re on the countdown to my birthday now. I had a sad week due to a death in my family, plus other commitments made things quite busy. I did do some cheering book shopping (some in store, some online) so you’ll be seeing the results of that over the next few weeks as they arrive.
I really like the cover of Lisa See’s China Dolls, set in late 1930s and WWII San Francisco. It’s about three women working in a club, all with different backgrounds and all with things to hide. South of Darkness by John Marsden is his first adult book. It’s Australian history from England to Botany Bay, and sounds really good. I loved his YA books growing up. Fiona McIntosh’s Nightingale was recommended to me by a person at work, it’s set in WWI and is a love story filled with loss and mystery. She read it in two days, so it must be good!
Do stop in at the Mailbox Monday blog for links to everyone’s mailbox goodies. Overseen by Vicki (I’d Rather Be at the Beach), Leslie (Under My Apple Tree) and Serena (Savvy Verse & Wit), I’m sure you’ll find something you want to read, as well as more great books!
