It was so hot last week! Hot temperatures and hot winds have unfortunately led to devastating bushfires which is heartbreaking. The town of Yarloop in W.A.’s South West is almost gone – I really feel for the community who appears to have lost just about everything. I hope to help out a little by contributing to Baked Relief W.A. I’d love to contribute some books too (sometimes reading can be a way of escaping), but I’m not too sure if anyone is accepting them (or the fate of the Yarloop library). If you do know, please let me know.
My week was busy, but really I have nothing to complain about. I was very lucky to receive two books in the mail (sunnies are my own – hoping to get some reading done outside today):
Romance for Cynics by Nicola Marsh was a prize from Nicola. Thank you! The book is set around Valentine’s Day – Lucy hates it and Cashel’s PR team want him to enter a themed competition. Naturally, they fake it to win but will the deception become real? What I Saw by Beck Nicholas (out March) came from Harlequin. It’s a YA book about Callie, who saw a crime but isn’t particularly interested in clearing the name of bad boy Rhett. What is Callie hiding?
This is also the last of my Christmas books – cooking! Simply Nigella by Nigella Lawson looks delicious, while hopefully Everyday Super Food by Jamie Oliver helps to counteract the sweet goodies! Adam Liaw’s new book, Asian Cookery School looks easy to follow (and scrumptious) and Donna Hay’s Life in Balance is light and lean. The last book is Great Lego Sets, which came with a mini space cruiser.
If you want to check out more exciting bookshelves, do drop by 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 many books for the wish list!
