Mailbox Monday and What I’m Reading: 16/9/19

A busy week as always. It wasn’t great for football, but on the upside it means I’ll have more time to read (plus a functional voice). I was lucky to receive some books in the mail this week!

A Single Thread by Tracy Chevalier  (available now, RPR $32.99) arrived thanks to Harper Collins (how did you know I had my eye on it?). It’s 1932 and Violet decides to leave her home for Winchester and a new life. Sure she’s independent, but it isn’t always easy and Violet collects a few secrets of her own.

Bruny by Heather Rose (available 1st October, RRP $32.99) arrived from Allen & Unwin. After the Bruny bridge is bombed, Astrid returns home to help her brother with the forthcoming election. But family and politics are high maintenance and Astrid discovers just how far the government is willing to go.

Platform Seven by Louise Doherty (available 17th September, RRP $29.99) also came from Allen & Unwin. When Lisa spots a man on the station platform at 4am, she knows what is about to happen. What connects the two?

The Confession by Jessie Burton (available 24th September, RRP $29.99) starts in the 1980s and continues through to the present day. Elise falls under the spell of Connie and follows her from London to L.A. in the eighties. In the present day, Rose wants to know more about the mother she never knew. She goes to meet Connie, now a reclusive author, to find out what happened. Thanks to Pan Macmillan for the copy.

Up on Horseshoe Hill by Penelope Janu (available 18th November, RRP $29.99) is about farrier Jemima, who is happy living in the rural town of Horseshoe Hill. She is determined not to rely on anyone ever again, especially Finn the vet. He might be fascinated by her, but Jemima knows how to avoid others… Thanks to Harlequin for the ARC.

  1. I love the sound of all your books this week. Especially Platform Seven and Up on Horseshoe Hill. A female farrier sounds very interesting.

  2. Nice looking books. I’m busy watching baseball as the season nears its end and the post season is soon to begin. This year my team will be participating. Come see my week here. Happy reading!

I enjoy reading your comments! Thanks for stopping by.
