Mailbox Monday and What I’m Reading: 2/1/23

It was a good Christmas for book and as you can see, particularly for Colleen Hoover. (All her books have been reprinted and really easy to find here).

Seeing Other People by Diana Reid is about sisters Eleanor and Charlie, both very different and looking for changes post-lockdown. But their relationships are going to become very entangled…

Diddly Squat: Until the Cows Come Home by Jeremy Clarkson is more about his farm, including cows, badgers, beer and accidentally hitting a power pole…

Bad Girl Reputation by Elle Kennedy opens with Genevieve returning home and meeting up with her ex-boyfriend. She’s determined to be a different person to her bad girl days but Evan has other ideas…

This Time Tomorrow by Emma Straub has Alice confused at almost 40 – and even more so when she wakes up at 16. It’s an opportunity to experiment with different versions of her life.

Velvet Was the Night by Silvia Moreno-Garcia is set in 1970s Mexico City. Maite and Elvis are searching for Maite’s neighbour, who has disappeared. But it turns out Leonora had many, many secrets involving the government and spies.

Demon Copperhead by Barbara Kingsolver is David Copperfield, set in the Appalachian Mountains of Virginia. Demon is a fighter and dreams of seeing the ocean one day in this world of love, loss and addiction.

Tripping Over Myself by Shaun Micallefis a memoir of his life in comedy from Adelaide to all the free to air television channels, including Mad As Hell, Newstopia and The Micallef P(r)ogram(me).

It Starts With Us by Colleen Hoover probably needs no introduction. Lily and Ryle are co-raising their daughter when Atlas reappears after two years. Can they reconnect or will Ryle ruin it?

All Your Perfects by Colleen Hoover opens with Quinn and Graham in a happy relationship, but later their marriage is far from perfect. Mistakes and dreams are tearing them apart.

Hopeless by Colleen Hoover is about Sky and Dean. Sky is determined to stay away from him as he brings back memories of her past, but they bond closely. But he has secrets of his own…

Slammed by Colleen Hoover has Layken discovering slam poetry – and her neighbour Will. They start a relationship but there are multiple forces trying to tear them apart…

Maybe Someday by Colleen Hoover opens with Sydney’s perfect life – until she discovers that her boyfriend is cheating on her. Her neighbour catches her eye but it will turn out that they both need each other in multiple ways…

Regretting You by Colleen Hoover is about mother and daughter Morgan and Clara. Morgan doesn’t want Clara to fall into the same traps she did. Morgan’s husband is a calming influence until everything comes crashing down…
