Mailbox Monday for July being hosted by Mrs Q. Book Addict.
My mailbox for this week has been delightful!
My usual church sale has also got a library. I have not been taking books as I was never sure whether I could return them in the two week period. This last week I thought I'd give them a go and so glad I did.
The Borgias like the Tudors are always interesting. Compared to Alexander and Cesare, Lucrezia seems like a walk in the park. Used by her father and brother to further their own ends, Lucrezia adores them both and the ties that bind the three of them are unbreakable.
I saw this author mentioned on Cornflower Books for a review of another book. Glad I got to this one.
On top of this I bought two books!
Set in colonial Malaya this is my kind of book!
One of three books by Catherine McKenzie which have been on my list - the other two books are Arranged and Forgotton.
It's Monday What Are You Reading? a meme hosted by Book Journey.
Have read quite a few books this week. I finished Sleeping Tiger, Light on Lucrezia and An Equal Stillness. Now reading Agatha Christie's Black Coffee and hopefully afterwards In the Company of the Courtesan.
My coming week is going to be very eventful. Having a cousin coming over whom we haven't seen for thirty years! she is bringing three of her children - all of them born in the UK and coming out to Sri Lanka for the first time. I've had this experience before and its always nice to see children's reactions to Sri Lanka!!! It can be quite a culture shock for children born outside Sri Lanka. Parents seem to slide back into their old ways but for children it is not easy.
Everyone have a good week!
