“Mailbox Monday is the gathering place for readers to share the books that came into their house last week. Warning: Mailbox Monday can lead to envy, toppling TBR piles and humongous wish lists.” This month it is hosted by She Reads and Reads.
In a Summer Season (Elizabeth Taylor)
I really enjoyed Taylor’s Mrs Palfrey at the Claremont and wanted to read more of her works. I found this one on bookmooch and hope it’s a good one.
The Diary of a Nobody (George and Weedon Smith)
I can’t resist the English humorists and this one is a classic so it was only a matter of time before I got around to it. For those who don’t know, this book is about middle-class Charles Pooter, living in Victorian London, who reasons that although he is a nobody, his diary might be entertaining as well.
Dandelion Wine (Ray Bradbury)
This one is non-sci-fi Bradbury and chronicles the summer of a twelve-year-old boy. After hearing great things about Dandelion Wine from Vishy and Jessica, I knew I had to read it. Question is, do I wait till summer to read it?
The Victorian Chaise-Longue (Marghanita Laski)
This one is more appropriate considering the season, and I can’t wait to get spooked by this Victorian horror story.
And all these books were mooches! It’s official, I’m a fan! 🙂
