Mailbox Monday and What I’m Reading: 19/11/18

Last week went by quickly as I was doing the same things over and over. Plenty of walking and plenty of waking up early!

I received my latest Readings order in the mail in addition to some others. I also bought one book on a lunch break.

Beauchamp Hall by Danielle Steel (released 27th November) arrived from Pan Macmillan. Winona’s life hasn’t gone to plan and the one solace she has is watching Beauchamp Hall on television. When everything falls in a heap, she decides to visit the town where it is filmed with unexpected results.

The Scholar by Dervla McTiernan (for release 18th February 2019) came from Harper Collins. Detective Cormac Reilly is called to a murder discovered by his partner outside the university. The victim is heir to a pharmaceuticals empire and the heat is on. Has Detective Reilly overlooked crucial evidence?

Dopesick by Beth Macy is non-fiction, looking at the opioid epidemic in America from big business to small towns. Greed and need battle it out in a country with a unique healthcare system.

Pulse Points by Jennifer Down won the Readings Prize this year, so I had to check out these stories. They are set across the world, from Japan to California, and deal with love and loss.

The Diary of a Bookseller by Shaun Bythell has received many rave reviews. It’s a memoir about his bookshop, the customers, the business and everything in between.

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.

  1. I have to admit to enjoying some time out with a Danielle Steel book. However your Dervla McTiernan book looks wonderful. I read her first book The Ruin and can’t wait to get my hands on The Scholar. Enjoy reading it.

I enjoy reading your comments! Thanks for stopping by.
