Mailbox Monday ~ December 21st
After several years of being on tour with different blogs as the monthly host, the Mailbox Monday Blog is now the permanent home for the meme.
We have been having a lovely December here in the Chicago area, probably the warmest on record. No snow, mild days in the 50s, and barely any frosty evenings. I don’t mind as I prefer summer and warmth. Unfortunately for me, we had a one-day cold spell on Saturday, the day of the Christmas Bird Count, with high temps below freezing. I participate in the count every year with my bird club, and about 20 of us braved the chilly winds and tried to find birds, most of which were smart enough to stay hidden.
I am still not ready for Christmas, but that’s not unusual and seems to happen every year. I just don’t know where the time goes. I still have some shopping to do and cookies to bake. And then I can enjoy the Holidays.
A few new books arrived last week . . .
The Good Liar by Nicholas Searle from Harper.
This is a life told back to front. This is a man who has lied all his life. Roy is a conman living in a small English town, about to pull off his final con. He is going to meet and woo a beautiful woman and slip away with her life savings. But who is the man behind the con?
I’ll See You in Paris by Michelle Gable from Thomas Dunne Books.
After losing her fiancé in the Vietnam War, nineteen-year-old Laurel Haley takes a job in England, hoping the distance will mend her shattered heart. Laurel expects the pain might lessen but does not foresee the beguiling man she meets or that they’ll go to Paris, where the city’s magic will take over and alter everything Laurel believes about love.
