Mailbox Monday for June being hosted by Dolce Bellezza

Books which I have this week are


A young girl growing up in the care of her cousin whilst her father works on a top secret project. Set in the 1940s.

Set in Hitler's era the heart breaking choices that parents throughout the centuries have made to protect their children.

Set in 1917 in rural Ireland, the divide is coming between the rich and the poor and life is going to change for all. A family story.

Whatever You Love

A hit and run driver kills nine year old Betty and turns her family's life upside down. Coping with grief and loss and the strange ways of a troubled mind.

The Chalice

Loved The Crown so I grabbed this one!

The Master Bedroom

Looking for The London Train came across this one. It is very often like this because the latest is never available when I want to read them but then I get on to a lesser known book. Equally enjoyable. 

Hosted by Sheila at Book Journey.

Right now I am a quarter way through Flora and am behind on all the reviews which will have to wait till I get back home!


  1. I had Flora as an e-book and took too long to read it and now it is not available. :(

    Hope you enjoy it.

  2. Great looking group of books. Flora has been getting good reviews. Have a great week.

  3. That is the way it goes with me too. Often I set out to find one but an end up with a different, better book!

  4. My book group might be reading Flora in the future. The Crown sounded really interesting but I never got around to reading it. Tyringham Park is another one that looks good to me. Not sure if it is available in the States yet.

  5. I've been wanting to read The Chalice (and The Crown) for a while now. But even so, the book I think I'd most want to read would be Far to Go.

  6. I read Far to Go last year, but my cover was different from the one you have! Enjoy your reads this week. :)

  7. Great group of books! Definitely interested in reading Tyringham Park :)

  8. Hi Mystica,

    You have a great selection in your mailbox this week, I don't think there is one of your books which I wouldn't be more than happy to read.

    If I had to choose just one or two for my own list though, I think that 'Tyringham Park' and 'Whatever You Love', would probably make it over the others.

    I can just imagine the scenario portrayed in the synopsis for 'Whatever You Love', of me wanting to wreak my own justice, if one of my own immediate family were killed in this way and the authorities didn't act quickly or decisively enough. This sounds like a real page-turner.

    Thanks for sharing and have a good week.


  9. Hope you enjoy The Chalice as much as I did. Bet it's chilly in Melbourne, enjoy your time there and happy reading :)

  10. I am curious about Flora, a book I've seen on other blogs. Hope you are enjoying it.

  11. Far to Go catches my interest. I read Tyringham Park...did not care for it, though.

  12. You are in for a treat with Flora. Hope you love it - she's a great character.

  13. You've got some great books to read! I received The Chalice too and The Crown. I'm happy to see you liked The Crown, I'm looking forward to reading both books soon. I'll have to come back and check out your review!

  14. I hope you love Far to Go as much as I did! Enjoy your new books.

  15. You got a lot of great looking books! Far to Go stands out to me as one I'd enjoy. I hope you have a great week in books.

  16. I'm always behind on my reviews...still have yet to find that balance between reading and writing!

    I read The Chalice and need to go back and read The Crown!

    Thanks for stopping by my blog!

  17. Whatever You Love is a new title to me, but it definitely looks interesting. I also liked The Crown very much, but for some reason,although I DID like it, The Chalice didn't exert the same hold on me. Enjoy your reading week!

  18. I enjoyed Flora...Whatever You Love looks good. Thanks for stopping by my blog, and enjoy your week.

  19. I'm so curious about Flora, I've heard GREAT things :) Enjoy!

    Have a great week!

  20. At some point I am going to do a marathon read of both of Bilyeau's books =) MAYBE before the third comes out? Thanks for visiting my memes post today!

  21. I was just sent Apple Tree Yard by Louise Doughty - I actually like the premise of Whatever You Love more though.

    Read on!
