Mailbox Monday and What I’m Reading: 5/7/21

It’s been an eventful week with local transmission of COVID-19 and lockdown but I think we’re getting there. Here’s the books that arrived:

Becoming by Michelle Obamareally shouldn’t need an introduction. It’s the story of her childhood, career and family and the ups and downs that went with them.

Conversations with Friends by Sally Rooney is Frances, a student and her best friend Bobbi (who used to be her girlfriends). They become friends with Melissa and her husband Nick, entering into a new world of overseas holidays, beautiful houses, rambunctious dinner parties and an awkward rearrangement of relationships.

To see other books received/bought this week across the world, drop by the Mailbox Monday blog for links to everyone’s mailbox goodies.

  1. My housemate lent me her copy of ‘Conversations with Friends’ so that one is definitely on my list this summer! I kind of love the ‘in between books’ feeling when there’s so many amazing options, I just tend to get stuck in it sometimes xD I hope you have a lovely week 🙂

  2. Sorry to hear Covid is rearing its ugly head where you are again. We are having issues with people who don’t think they need to be vaccinated. Almost 99% of the current cases and deaths are in that population. Come see my week here. Happy reading!
