Hello everyone! Hope you are having a half-way decent Monday, not too bad at my end. I love coming home from work and getting to join in on blogging!
This week only brought in a few items in my mailbox. They actually both came today, so the mailbox was kinda lonely! So on with the show.
1. The House at Riverton ~Kate Morton (ordered from UK Book Depository)
2. The Forgotten Garden ~Kate Morton (ordered from UK Book Depository)
I saw The House at Riverton at the local bookstore about 2 weeks ago and it sounded so exciting. I passed on spending an undue amount of money there and ordered it from the Book Depository as soon as I got home. Gotta love free shipping worldwide!
The House at Riverton
This debut page-turner from Australian Morton recounts the crumbling of a prominent British family as seen through the eyes of one of its servants. At 14, Grace Reeves leaves home to work for her mother's former employers at Riverton House. She is the same age as Hannah, the headstrong middle child who visits her uncle, Lord Ashbury, at Riverton House with her siblings Emmeline and David. Fascinated, Grace observes their comings and goings and, as an invisible maid, is privy to the secrets she will spend a lifetime pretending to forget. But when a filmmaker working on a movie about the family contacts a 98-year-old Grace to fact-check particulars, the memories come swirling back.

I have updated my review and giveaway policies page (now just titled Policies above). If you are entering a giveaway, please read and abide by the applicable policy.
I am no longer an Amazon Associate. I am currently working on updating my posts with links to various locations to buy books. One of the links I am including is to RJ Julia - this is my favorite local independent book store. You can shop their store online and have access to pretty much anything you are looking for. I do not have any affiliation with any of these sites - just looking to support my local indie book store.
Anyone looking for a new feed reader? My recommendation is Bloglovin'. I made the switch and love the layout, plus there is now an app for my phone. If you use Bloglovin' or have made the switch to another feed reader, please make sure you are following me on it so you miss none of the content here!
