Mailbox Monday and What I’m Reading: 23/8/21

Last week we saw some sunshine and some hints that spring is on its way! Unfortunately the weekend was a bit rainy, but that’s OK because I can read…

The Curlew’s Eye by Karen Manton (available 14th September) was a surprise from Allen & Unwin. Greta and her husband have returned to his family’s isolated property to prepare it for sale. But Joel has never spoken about his childhood and Greta feels drawn to the mysteries that surround them. But both her and Joel’s secrets will catch up with them…

Semi-gloss by Justine Cullen is a memoir of essays about Cullen’s life as a magazine editor, family, mistakes and fashion. I used to read of a lot of the magazines that she wrote or edited, so I’m looking forward to reading this.

Detransition, Baby by Torrey Petersis a book I’ve been trying to get my hands on for some time. Reese is trying to avoid her loneliness by sleeping with married men, but then her ex Amy calls. Amy detransitioned to become Ames. Now his boss is pregnant and Ames wants to know if Reese wants to be a mother in this family.
