Mailbox Monday - August 23rd

Mailbox Monday is the gathering place for readers to share the books that came in their mailbox during the last week. It now has a permanent home at the Mailbox Monday blog.

Happy Monday!
Lock down has been extended for us in NSW until end of September. Today I am focusing on some happy things. My husband and son are currently rocking their new 70's hair styles. I'm not game to cut their hair! We still get to walk everyday and the weather is gorgeous. Below are some snaps from my daily walks.

I've finished the blanket I've been knitting for Jay. The squares waiting to be sewn together and the finished blanket drying outside.

Books I've received and purchased over the last month.
The Heron's Cry by Ann Cleaves (release date 7th Sept 2021)
Apples Never Fall by Liane Moriarty (release date 14th Sept 2021)
Exit Through the Gift Shop by Maryam Master (Publication 27th July 2021)
The Cat Who Saved Books by Sosuke Natsukawa (release date 14th September 2021)
Do any of the above peak your interest? What have you received in your mail box recently? 


  1. That community library looks adorable! And I love the blanket, so colourful and cozy-looking! 'The Cat Who Saved Books' sounds amazing, I've added it to me TBR pile. I hope you have a lovely week despite the continued lockdown :)

    I like the sound of The Cat Who Saved Books but Exit Through the Gift Shop really calls to me.

  6. I just got a copy of Apples Never Fall, too! Really looking forward to reading it, I'm saving it to "treat" myself soon. And The Cat Who Saved Books has caught my eye, what a great title!
