Mailbox Monday - November 29th

Mailbox Monday is the gathering place for readers to share the books that came in their mailbox during the last week (or month). I post my new books on the last Monday of the month. It now has a permanent home at the Mailbox Monday Blog
 
 
 

 Happy Monday
 
We are having a wet and cool Spring this year in Sydney but I am still managing to get out for my daily walks and also snuggling up inside reading lots of books. It's hard to believe the Australian Summer starts on Wednesday and we are still getting around in long pants and jumpers!
 
What is a month in The Burgeoning Bookshelf's household without a birthday or two. Over the last month we celebrated my Daughter-in-laws birthday and my third son's birthday.

 

 
The Jacarandas are blooming everywhere. This beautiful carpet of flowers is on my front lawn. A neighbour has a Jacaranda and an Illawarra Flame tree in their front yard and it looks so amazing we are contemplating planting an Illawarra Flame tree. 

 
 
 
 
 
 

 
My eldest daughter is getting married in a few weeks and hopefully I will have some photos in the next mailbox post.
 
 Books I've received and purchased over the last month

Do any of the above peak your interest? What has arrived in your mailbox lately?

  1. Lovely tree photos! I've heard good things about the Picoult book so I hope you enjoy it and the rest of your new books.

    1. I haven't read a Jodi Picoult book before so if I enjoy this I have a nice back list to read

  2. I misread the first time and thought you had a son turning three and a daughter about to get married and thought ‘that’s quite the gap’ lol.
    We have a lot of books in common :)

    Wishing you a great reading week

    1. Ha, I don't think I have the energy for a three year old now.

  3. Birthdays and springtime are so much fun. Can't wait to see photos from the wedding.

    Nice new books. Once Burnt, Twice Shy and Wish You Were Here caught my eye. Hope you enjoy all of these.

  6. You've made me want cake! Those were amazing. I love the colorful images of the Jacarandas. That is one spectacular tree. Good luck keeping that stack of books from toppling!
