Mailbox Monday and What I’m Reading: 14/9/20

Another Monday. Only one book finished because I’ve been really busy but I did have a chance to do some browsing!

The Godmothers by Monica McInerney (available 29th September) is thanks to Penguin. Eliza’s family life wasn’t great growing up, but she always had her two godmothers. But after a tragic event, Eliza has chosen to live as safely as possible. But when a godmother offers her an exciting invitation, Eliza starts to blossom and begin her search for her father.

All Adults Here by Emma Straub is about the Strick family. Astrid’s children are all grown up, but certainly aren’t acting like it (and nor is Astrid). Elliot is lost, Porter is pregnant and Nicky has fled to follow his bohemian dream. But then Nicky’s daughter comes to stay and no one can hide their true selves…

Beach Read by Emily Henry introduces the reader to two authors who have writer’s block. But January and Gus need to write a bestseller each before the end of summer and a bet has them swapping genres with a race to get published.

My Year of Rest and Relaxation by Ottessa Moshfegh has always intrigued me with that cover. In New York in 2000, everything should be going swimmingly for the main character. She has beauty, education, inheritance and an Upper East Side apartment. But her relationships are lost or unhealthy and everything is wrong.

  1. My Year of Rest and Relaxation intrigues me too, for the title and cover. The premise puts me off, but I think I want to read it.

I enjoy reading your comments! Thanks for stopping by.
