“Mailbox Monday is a gathering place for readers to share the books that came into their house last week and explore great book blogs. Warning: Mailbox Monday can lead to envy, toppling TBR piles and humongous wish lists.” It is hosted by BookNAround this month.
I’m currently staying with my parents and so got to visit all my old bookish haunts There’s a wonderful second-hand bookshop, which was closed for a while because a water pipe or something broke. Luckily it re-opened last week and everything seems to have survived.
Travel Light (Naomi Mitchinson)
A magical quest story with bears, dragons and more.
Angel (Elizabeth Taylor)
Born to a shopkeeper mother, Angel thinks she is destined for much more. Retreating into romance, she begins writing fanciful stories.
Bad Company (Liza Cody)
The second Anna Lee book, in which she is herself kidnapped while investigating a case.
Under Contract (Liza Cody)
Another Anna Lee book, in which she has to mind a rock-star on tour.
And then I couldn’t resist the big bookstore and also got:
The Thief (Fuminori Nakamura)
The thief is offered a job he can’t refuse, and he is tangled-up in a web of political intrigue as a result.
