Mailbox Monday and What I’m Reading: 29/6/20

I’ve been doing a lot of moving of books around the house due to painting and wow, they can be a great workout. I’ve rediscovered a lot of fantastic ones to read, but which one first?

I received one book in the mail and bought two as this windy picture shows:

Stars Over the Southern Ocean by J.H. Fletcher arrived from Harlequin. Set across the 1930s and 1990s, it focuses on Marina. She’s always lived in a small town in Tasmania, but after meeting Jory she starts dreaming of freedom. In later life, she just wants to be at home but her family seems intent on moving her away for their own gains.

Something to Talk About by Rachael Johns is the second in her Rose Hill series. I really enjoyed Talk of the Town and loved Tabitha’s character (she makes ice cream!) so I had to buy it. Tab doesn’t want a man; she wants her dream. But when new teacher Ferg comes to town, every woman except Tab is after him. But fate keeps throwing them together…with sparks.

The Rules of Contagion by Adam Kucharski is non-fiction and very timely. It’s not just about viruses and pandemics, but misinformation and violence – things that appear, spread and then fade away. It’s about human behaviour and prediction, and why things grow in an interconnected world.

  1. All of your books look interesting. Rachael John’s books are always an excellent read and The Rules of Contagion would be an interesting read at this time.

  2. I don’t know what I’m reading next either. There are so many good choices that I’m having a hard time narrowing it to just one. Come see my week here. Happy reading!

  3. Stars over the Southern Ocean appeals to me. I have all Rachael’s books on my shelf. They are always a good read.

I enjoy reading your comments! Thanks for stopping by.
