Mailbox Monday hosted by Dolce Bellezza for June.
I love books set in colonial India. Sri Lanka did not share such a colorful colonial history as India did. The British built a wonderful system of roads and railways in Sri Lanka, established the Railway Department and practically the entire system of Government but the actual stories of Britishers in Sri Lanka are not as colorful or vivid as those who lived in India.

Still playing catch up with work - only being back five days to so much to do.
Re reading a couple of Georgette Heyers as I do not seem to have much time for reading.
Under the Jewelled Sky looks so good! I love stories set in colonial India too and I haven't heard of this one before but it's one I want to check out now.ReplyDelete
I liked Under the Jewelled Sky, I hope you do too.ReplyDelete
Adding the title to the list Mystica!ReplyDelete
Don't work too hard, there is always tomorrow!
Sending a warm hello from the Pacific NW cost,
Great cover on the McQueen book. Hope you love it!ReplyDelete
Under the Jeweled Sky sounds really good. It won't be published in the States till next year I think.ReplyDelete
Indu Sundaresan has a new book being published later this year that is also about colonial India (The Mountain of Light) and sounds promising.
That cover is lovely! Hope it is a great read for you.ReplyDelete
Under the Jewelled Sky looks wonderful, looking forward to your thoughts on it. Good luck catching up with everything this week and happy reading :)ReplyDelete
I hope things settle for you soon and you get a bit more time to readReplyDelete

Mystica, the book sounds very interesting. I have, in fact, been going through a few historical books on colonialism in India and related issues mostly written by Englishmen, many of whom were stationed in India during the British occupation. These are available as copyright-free books. They're mostly documentary stuff but contain a wealth of information.ReplyDelete
I'm really acquiring the books here at the ALA conference! I should have enough to carry me through the winter!ReplyDelete
I love the cover and the setting - the book sounds terrific!ReplyDelete
I have enjoyed a few books set in India and this one looks good as well.ReplyDelete
Under the Jeweled Sky sounds very interesting and the cover is quite attractive!ReplyDelete
Have a great week and thanks for stopping by my blog!

Under the Jewelled Sky looks gorgeous. Hope you love it!ReplyDelete
I hope the book is as fantastic as its cover. Have a great week!ReplyDelete

Re-reading can be soothing sometimes. I hope you enjoy your new and old reads this week!ReplyDelete
This is a new title for me and it does sound good. Love that cover!ReplyDelete
This sounds good and what a beautiful cover! Enjoy!ReplyDelete
I don't think I've ever read a book set in Colonial India. Unless you can't A Little Princess, which I'm not sure you can. But I think I'd love them as well, and definitely will be looking out for this one!ReplyDelete
