The first books to come were the delightful The Postmistress and Middlemarch. Both wins from Martha. Martha took a lot of trouble to combine two wins and give me two delightful books. I have been wanting to read The Postmistress for simply ages and this is going to tide me over the dreadful eight hour flight Singapore/Melbourne.
Middlemarch described as a view of Provincial Life set in 1830 - 1832 sounds just up my street.
All other books bought by me from a second hand bookshop and all delightful.
I have been trying to get all the Georgette Heyer novels and I think I am getting there. The Sixth Wife dealing with Katharine Parr gives another insight into the Tudor saga and specially since she is one of those "who got away". I have already finished this one and it was quite eerie because she always knew that sooner or later she would have to go to make way for a newer model. Henry's death was her escape.
Mailbox Monday is on tour and for November it is here. The other meme is sponsored by Book Journey and highlights what you read and reading for the week.
I have done a good bit of reading this last week with several more reviews still to come. I just finished The Sixth Wife and the Catherine Cookson (Marchant) book Miss Martha Mary Crawford. I finished one of the two books by Anne Murray Birmingham Blitz. There is still Birmingham Friends in that book to finish but that will have to await my return to Sri Lanka.
The book I am hoping to start today is The Postmistress. It will then be on to the Carnegie library in Melbourne where I will be devouring books (all listed and waiting to be grabbed by me!!!!)
I do hope the weather is not extreme. Showers and scattered thunderstorms are ok by me but not the extreme heat of an Australian summer please!
