Mailbox Monday and What I’m Reading: 31/10/22

End of another month! It looks like holiday gifts and Christmas items are in full swing. The shops are very busy!

Sweet Thursday by John Steinbeck is about the day after Lousy Wednesday, when anything can happen on the scene of Cannery Row after the war.

The Paper Palace by Miranda Cowley Heller is set over both 24 hours and 50 years. Elle reflects on her encounter the night before which leads to a betrayal that is life changing.

The Summer Job by Lizzy Dent opens with Birdy landing her dream job – but it really belongs to her best friend. Once she sorts herself out, she really will let her know…

The Holiday Bookshop by Lucy Dickens is about a luxury resort on a tropical island looking for a bookseller. Of course it sounds great, but there is a bookshop to revitalise…
