Mailbox Monday and What I’m Reading 30/5/16

It’s sunny and (almost) warm outside! Needless to say, it’s been difficult trying to sit in front of the computer today although I think I’ll spend some of the day relaxing. It’s been a busy week!

I received two books in the mail, one of them went on a long, detailed trip of the local post offices but I finally managed to nail it down.

(Taking advantage of the sunshine with a pic outside – so bright I couldn’t see the screen!)

I am so excited for Maggie O’Farrell’s This Must Be the Place (out June). It’s about Daniel, who has a rather complicated life that spans the globe. Then he finds out something about an old friend which sends him away from his home. Will he return to his wife? Thanks Hachette!

Kelly Doust’s Precious Things was a win from Harper Collins and Goodreads. It’s not about a person, but a collar that has been worn over the years by many women across the world. It’s Maggie that rediscovers it and wants to find out more about its past, learning more about herself.

If you want to check other 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!

  1. I had one that had a long journey to my house this week too. I’m not sure where it went before it finally got to me. Come see my week here. Happy reading!

  2. Ah lap up the sun when you see it now, although I expect Aussie sees more of it than we do. A book getting lost in the tangle of the post office – oh dear!

I enjoy reading your comments! Thanks for stopping by.
