This was a quiet week at work. Things are slowly stabilizing. We are finally allowed to take vacation time, but no more than two weeks. We still have a shortage of healthcare workers here in Quebec. I attended two funerals (via Zoom) this week.
We had a heatwave though and I was finally able to get into shorts and a tank and soak up some much-needed sun!
Happy reading y'all. Stay safe and take care of each other.
Mailbox Monday Edition
Mailbox Monday is the gathering place for readers to share the books that came into their house last week. Mailbox Monday now has a permanent home on its blog. Link up to share your MM.
Free Kindle books:
I had pre-ordered this one and it's available as of today!
It's Monday! What Are You Reading? is a place to meet up and share what you have been, are and about to be reading over the week. It's a great post to organize yourself. It's an opportunity to visit and comment, and er... add to that ever-growing TBR pile! So welcome in everyone. This meme started with J Kaye's Blog and then was taken up by Sheila from Book Journey. Sheila then passed it on to Kathryn at the Book Date.
What I reviewed and/or featured last week:
I loved listening to this one. Can't wait for her next release in audio!
I'm about halfway through. This book has great characterization. I'm enjoying it.
Stop by and enter my giveaways!
Also posted on the right sidebar.
Hope you all have a great reading week.
Someday in Paris looks good, glad you are enjoying it.ReplyDelete
I have a copy of The Flatshare, and can't wait to read it! Thanks for sharing, and for visiting my blog.ReplyDelete
It’s wonderful to finally feel the sun! It’s been out here some too and I’ve been soaking it in too. I really enjoy Beth O’Leary on audio. I’ll have to look this one up. Hope you have a good week Laura.ReplyDelete
I'm glad it's a bit more normal for you. Things are opening here but we are staying home anyway.ReplyDelete

I hope so much that things are stabilizing where you are and that you are able to take vacations. I'm sorry there is a shortage of healthcare workers. It saddens me to think that you attended two funerals last week.ReplyDelete
We've had a beautiful spring and summer is in full swing. I'm trying not to sink into despair about the pain of the world right now.
Thanks, Deb. I totally understand how you feel.Delete
The weather during the entire 10 week lockdown period has been amazing, in fact the temperatures have been more like those of mid-summer, a little too warm for me I'm afraid. I am most surprised that we haven't had water shortages declared and hosepipe bans, but perhaps they are saving that little gem for when a few more people get back to work and some sense of a new normality is established!
I really like the sound of 'The Stationmaster's Cottage' and 'The Giant', with my favourite cover art going to 'Seeing Mis Heartstone', although all your authors this time are new to me.
Continue to Stay Safe and enjoy your reading this week :)
Oh, how I wish we had your temps!Delete
We're supposed to warm up here this week and I'm glad- the sun is nice. Hope your weather stays nice as well. Happy reading this week and be safe!ReplyDelete

Yeah...discouragement can sure cause one to feel unmotivated. I hope you feel more like yourself soon.Delete
I hope you get some time off to rest and recoup. I like the look of your new titles. Happy reading!ReplyDelete
We still are not having seasonable temperatures.ReplyDelete
Your new titles look good.
ENJOY your week.
I hope you get a bit of a break from work.ReplyDelete
I can't decide which of your lovely new books I want to look at first: Seeing Miss Heartstone, The Stationmaster's Cottage and A Convenient Fiction. All tempt me.
Enjoy your warmer weather and your lovely books!
