Mailbox Monday 2/2/15

Another hot week here – and I don’t think we’re going to see temperatures fall any time soon below 33˚C (about 91˚F)! We had a spectacular thunderstorm, which had the feathered members of the household rather worried. Apart from that, it’s been busy with little time for book hunting.

I bought just one book, as it was the Kindle Daily Deal and it’s intrigued me for some time:

Custard Tarts and Broken Hearts by Mary Gibson is about Nellie, who works at a custard and jelly factory (yum). The workers have gone on strike, but things are about to be overshadowed by the First World War.

What did you buy or receive this week?

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!

  1. Hi Sam,

    This looks like a great read and I have already marked it for my Goodreads ‘Want To Read’ list. Jelly and custard brings back memories of childhood birthday parties, although tell a child now that this was going to be their birthday tea and wait for the tantrums!

    I know that we all like to moan about our weather, but to be honest I wouldn’t swap our cold wet and windy conditions, down here in the south of the UK, for those heatwave conditions you have! I probably wouldn’t be saying that if I lived in the much snowier north of the country though LOL

    Have a great week, stay cool and Happy Reading.


  2. You are having a hot week! It’s unseasonably warm here in SoCal as well- but not that hot 🙂 Custard Tarts does look like an intriguing read- I’ll be watching for your review. Have a great week 🙂

I enjoy reading your comments! Thanks for stopping by.
