Hello Monday. I’m not sure when January got so busy (normally nearly everyone is on holidays) but I think I’ve got something on nearly every day for the rest of the month! (Now is probably not the time to say I’m getting sick of catered food.) I did get to the shops on the weekend, but the bookstore I visited said that they were still waiting on their January deliveries, so I left empty handed. (I really wanted The Family Law by Benjamin Law – the TV show is so funny!) But I was very lucky and had some deliveries in the mail.
Girl Runner by Carrie Snyder is an apt title for this Goodreads win. The place that dispatched the book misread ‘Australia’ for ‘America’ and sent it there. Fortunately DHL worked out where I was and sent it on – express. Very kind! It’s about one of the first girl runners, Aganetha Smart, starting in Canada in the 1920s.
The Light on the Water by Olga Lorenzo (out March) was a win from Allen & Unwin and The Reading Room. It’s about Anne, who had been charged with her daughter’s murder after she disappeared on a camping trip. But is she innocent?
Rebound by Aga Lesiewicz was a surprise from Pan Macmillan. It’s out February and involves Anna’s growing obsession with an intriguing stranger who she met jogging. Thanks everyone for the great books!
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!
