Mailbox Monday and What I’m Reading: 12/3/18

Nearly halfway through March! I didn’t get much reading done thanks to work, extra work, the Robbie Williams concert and whatever I had to do on the other nights. I’m looking forward to a good long perusal of the Women’s Prize for Fiction longlist as well as the Stella Prize shortlist which were released last week.

I bought one book and received two in the mail over the last week:

Thanks to Harlequin for the books I received! Making Peace by Fiona McCallum (released 1st April) is the follow-up book to last year’s Finding Hannah. Hannah’s getting over her shock loss, but friend Sam has her own crisis. Can Hannah help out? And will Hannah choose to find out more about the accident that changed her life?

Birthright by Fiona Lowe looks at family inheritance – a given or something to work for? The Jamieson family are all very different and as matriarch Margaret declines, each child will have to return home. But will their secrets destroy the family?

The Ministry of Utmost Happiness by Arundhati Roy is set in India. There are a number of things going on – an abandoned baby in a graveyard, romance between near strangers and a father writing a heartfelt letter – but they are bound by love in a broken world.

If you want to look at other books received this week across the globe, drop by the Mailbox Monday blog for links to everyone’s mailbox goodies.
