Mailbox Monday is on tour and for July is hosted by Mrs. Q Book Addict. I had some good choices at my second hand book store this week.
The accolades are immense for this one and the setting is also dramatic.
This was one I grabbed since I had just finished another book by the same author. I found it amazing and hope this one won't disappoint.
One of my commentators suggested me reading Robin Pilcher (son of Rosamunde Pilcher whose books I like). This is two books in one as well so double the pleasure.
I love her books! nothing more to add other than I love Dalgleish too.
A new author for me - recommended by a fellow blogger.
A new author and title for me - set in 1946 the war is over and this era is a period I like to read about.
Venice and crime! this is the mystery box selection. I like to go with a random read sometimes to see how it pans out.
The meme is hosted by Sheila at Book Journey.
Since I am doing this meme early the book I am reading today - Sunday is
Set in Malaya - with Japan waiting to over run the East, this is a saga of one woman's fight for survival. Very good so far. My next read will depend on my mood at that moment!
On a non book note - the cousins arrived and it was a lot of fun. Hoping to meet up once again before they go back to the UK. Hilarious how one of them was terrified of mosquitoes - and anything creepy crawly even flies. I do hope she does not get surprised by the komodo dragons around! Tried to explain tropical country - part of life but failed so gave up...
Another lot of cousins again from the UK - this time with three kids all under the age of seven coming on the 17th. Children are versatile, adaptable and will act to the manner born in two or three
days. They have not been able to come home for the last ten years as the mother went as a refugee and just got residence in the UK. Her father is in his late eighties and hanging on for dear life just to get a glimpse of his grandchildren. She is his only child and he is over the moon with happiness at the thought that at last he will be able to see and hold them.
Everyone have a good week.
