Hello December and summer! The weather might be nice, but the reading has been more alluring. I bought two books this week and received one in the mail.
Star Crossed by Minnie Darke (released 5th March 2019) was a prize thanks to Penguin. Justine bumps into old friend Nick and wants to get his attention. After finding out he relies on the astrology column from where she works, she starts to tweak it in her favour. It won’t do any harm…will it?
The Penguin Book of Japanese Short Stories (edited by Jay Rubin) was a present to myself. It’s a beautiful hardcover with high quality paper. There are many short stories, grouped into themes, such as disasters, modern life and nature. Definitely one to savour.
Return to Roseglen by Helene Young is set in North Queensland. I enjoy her books, so I’m looking forward to this story about Ivy and her daughter Felicity. Ivy is facing tough times – drought and frailty – but it’s the fractures within her own family that have her worried.
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.
