Mailbox Monday and What I’m Reading: 20/8/18

Last week was incredibly busy and it was difficult to fit in time to read. On reflection though, I don’t think I did too badly. September in Australia is a big month for books, so I’ve got some wonderful reads to motivate me!

The Book of Ordinary People by Claire Varley arrived from Pan Macmillan. I enjoyed Claire’s debut, The Bit in Between, so I’m sure to love this. It’s about five everyday people and their stories and dreams. Will they get what they want?

Man Out of Time by Stephanie Bishop (released August 28th) arrived from Hachette. I loved The Other Side of the World, so I jumped at the chance to read this. Stella’s father is missing and Stella knows something that will help to find him. But he hasn’t been a typical father and his failures are foremost in her mind. Can she bring herself to discard the memories and help him?

Paradox by Catherine Coulter (released September) arrived from Simon & Schuster. She’s a new author to me, but probably not for many of you! This book is the 22nd instalment of the FBI series. A failed kidnapping and a murder at a lake turn out to be linked, but what is even more shocking is the discovery of a number of bones at the bottom of the lake. It’s a race against time as agents Sherlock and Savich combine forces with Chief Ty Christie.

  1. I love the sound of the Catherine Coulter book. I hadn’t heard of her either, and I love that sort of book.

  2. I love that cover on Beautiful Revolutionary! I find the premise of The Book of Ordinary People so appealing. I need to look more closely at that one.

I enjoy reading your comments! Thanks for stopping by.
