Mailbox Monday and What I’m Reading: 22/10/18

End of October and the weather has turned cool and rainy again. I’m not complaining (although it’s making Pokémon hunting difficult). I received some lovely books in the mail this week (the weekend shopping hours were traded for Pokémon GO):

What the Woods Keep by Katya de Becerra was a prize from Katya herself. It’s about Hayden, who is getting ready for college, but her past is catching up with her. Her mother disappeared years ago, her father’s theories are growing wilder and she’s having weird dreams. Once Hayden returns home, it all comes together in the woods as reality is threatened.

The Christmas Lights by Karen Swan (available 30th October) arrived from Pan Macmillan. Bo and her partner Zac are living a life others dream of – travelling and sharing it online. Christmas will be spent in Norway, but things are no longer perfect. Something is wrong and Bo finds solace in local mountain guide Anders. His grandmother also has her own secret – will both of them discover who their true friends are?

A Well-Behaved Woman by Therese Anne Fowler (available 30th October) is about Alva Vanderbilt (nee Smith). She’s from an old family and Willian Vanderbilt is nouveau riche, but they are still excluded from society. Alva decides to take matters into her own hands but after she is betrayed, Alva’s strategy challenges her future. Thanks to Hachette for the copy.

Crimson by Niviaq Korneliussen (available November) also came from Hachette. This book is translated from the Greenlandic and is about a group of newly adult friends living their life – relationships, social media, secrets and love.

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.
