Mailbox Monday and What I’m Reading: 18/12/17

It’s the last week before Christmas and the mad rush is on – presents to buy, presents to wrap and numerous events to attend…then we have birthdays to think about! I’m looking forward to getting some reading done, but there might not be much happening until next week!

I received three books in the mail last week (I didn’t even attempt shopping):

The first two books were from Pan Macmillan. On a Beautiful Day by Lucy Diamond (released 30th January 2018) is set in Manchester as four friends meet up for a birthday lunch. But then they witness an accident which leads them to take stock of health, relationships and family. How will it change them?

The Book of Summer by Michelle Gable (released 27th December) is about Bess’ family house in Nantucket, Cliff House. It’s about to fall into the ocean and Bess is tasked to pack it up and make her mother leave. But the house’s guest book exposes some secrets…

The Tattooist of Auschwitz by Heather Morris (released 1st February 2018) arrived from Echo Publishing. It’s based on a true story. Lale is a prisoner in Auschwitz and his job is to tattoo his fellow prisoners. One day he meets a young woman and falls in love, giving him purpose to try to use his position for good.

Looks like some great summer reading!
