It’s still not spring here yet! It’s cold, windy and rainy, which makes for great reading weather. Except I’ve been pretty busy and reading has been slow!
I received two books over the past week, one from the kind people at Hachette and one from my mum.
Graeme Simsion needs no introduction to most readers! His latest book, The Best of Adam Sharp, is about lost love Angelina who suddenly gets in contact with him. Adam has always felt something was missing in his life – could it be Angelina? But what does she want and will he dare to try for a second chance? Thanks Mum!
Darktown by Thomas Mullen is set in Atlanta in 1948. As you can imagine, there’s a divide in the city – black versus white. On one side of the railway is what’s known as Darktown, which is guarded by eight policeman, the first black police force in the city. Except these men are kept nearly powerless by the authorities. A murder of a poor black woman results in only two officers being concerned – Boggs and Smith. To find out the truth, they will risk their jobs, trust and potentially their own lives. It also agitates some of the old school – but they may find allies in unlikely places… I’ll have the first chapter of this book up on Thursday if you’re interested!
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!
