Mailbox Monday and What I’m Reading: 17/9/18

A very busy week behind me now – I didn’t finish any books! I’m definitely making time for Australian Reading Hour this Thursday! I did get some lovely books in the mail.

The Winter Soldier by Daniel Mason (released 25th September) arrived from Pan Macmillan. It’s set during World War I when medical student Lucius enlists and finds himself not in a battlefield hospital, but a near deserted outpost. It’s him and nurse Margarete, but as they fall in love a decision involving a soldier affects them all.

Trumpedia by Dominic Knight (released 26th September) is strangely enough about Donald Trump. It contains all sorts of alternative facts you didn’t knew you needed to know. Looking forward to lots of laughs with this one, thanks to Allen & Unwin.

Absolute Proof by Peter James (also released 25th September with the lovely gold cover) was from Pan Macmillan too. Ross Hunter is an investigative journalist who receives a phone call from a man who says he can give proof of God’s existence. True or false, there is a lot at stake here as Ross tries to outran those after him…

Frieda by Annabel Abbs was a prize from Hachette. It’s based on a true story, that of Frieda von Richthofen who left her husband for D.H. Lawrence. She also happened to be the inspiration for Lady Chatterley’s Lover, which was banned in in multiple countries. Looking forward to reading about this passionate affair.

  1. I love the sound of the Peter James book. I think I will have to read Frieda as I can remember my Mum reading Lady Chatterly’s Loved when I was young. I asked her if I could read it, as it had been banned. I was shocked when she said yes. However I started it and didn’t continue it.

  2. Love the cover on FRIEDA.

    ENJOY all of your books….looking forward to your thoughts on THE CLOCKMAKER’S DAUGHTER. It was good as always, but Ms. Morton makes you “work” for clues. 🙂

    Have a great week.

I enjoy reading your comments! Thanks for stopping by.
