Mailbox Monday and What I’m Reading: 1/8/22

Another rainy week with a lot going on. I’ve been so tired after work that I’m not sure how I managed to finish two books!

Bloomsbury Girls by Natalie Jenner arrived thanks to Allen & Unwin. It’s set in 1950s London in Bloomsbury Books with each of the characters having their own issues in their personal lives. As they interact with the literary stars of the day, they plot their own better future…

Accomplished by Amanda Quain was from Pan Macmillan. It’s a Pride and Prejudice story reimagined in an American high school, starring Georgie Darcy. Last year she got into big trouble, so this year she needs to rebuild her reputation and avoid her brother Fitz. Maybe she could even get him to fall in love…

The Librarian Spy by Madeline Martin (available 3rd August) was thanks to Harlequin. Ava is a librarian in Lisbon on the surface, but underneath she’s a spy. Elaine is working at a printing press in occupied France, but the Nazis could find her and the press at any time. Together the women share coded messages through World War II.

Love at First Spite by Anna E. Collins has Dani getting the best revenge – buying the vacant land next to her ex-fiance’s house and building a holiday house that will ruin his view. But she needs to work with architect Wyatt, who is hard to deal with…at least initially…

  1. Awesome bookmail! I’ve had my eye on Accomplished! How’s it going so far?
    I’m currently reading Rebecca Ross’s A River Enchanted, which I’m really enjoying, it’s very windswept moors, Magic and fair folk with a mystery of missing kids, the community trying to understand if the fair folk took them and why.

I enjoy reading your comments! Thanks for stopping by.
