Hello! Welcome to another Monday – I can’t believe this week marks the middle of November! The year has really flown by. Things feel like they speed up once we hit November here – the weather is warmer and we are out more and then the end of year/Christmas events start. I also feel like the bookmail has sped up over the past few weeks, as I try and think about gift guides and recommendations and summer reading.
Today I’m joining some fellow bloggers over at Mailbox Monday and sharing four books that have arrived in my mailbox over the past week or so. These are all titles I’ve had on my radar and I’m looking forward to getting into!
Emergency Exit Only by Michelle Upton
Amelia Harris has played it safe all her life – but when a minor accident lands her in hospital, she dramatically quits the tedious office job she’s had for a decade.
At a loss at what she wants to do next – and fast running out of cash – Amelia tries her hand at the dream jobs she’s always fantasised about. Soon she’s shadowing a thrilling cast of characters and professions – as a journalist, a florist, a wedding planner, a zookeeper, and more. Life couldn’t be more exciting, especially when she meets the man of her dreams.
But when her mother, Toni, drops a truth bomb about their family, Amelia’s whole world tilts on its axis. Meanwhile, each new job starts taking on a life of its own. Has she created a monster?
As she’s about to find out, where there’s smoke, there’s fire, and sometimes you just have to save yourself.

Sisters of Sword and Shadow by Laura Bates
Destined for an arranged marriage, Cass dreams of freedom. So when a fierce and beautiful leather‑clad woman rides up and offers to take her away, Cass doesn’t hesitate to join her. She is introduced to the Sisters of Sword and Shadow – a group of female knights training to fight, protect their community and right the wrongs of men. Drawn into a world of ancient feuds, glorious battles, and deadly intrigue, Cass soon discovers she holds a power that could change not only her own fate but that of her entire sisterhood.

It’s Probably You by Jayne Denker
Gillian has been happily single for several years and, after trying a few dating apps, prefers to stay that way. Navigating her way through dates with fat-shamers and lacklustre men has left her with no desire to do anything other than spend time in her garden. Who needs rude comments and awkward first dates when soft roses and vibrant tulips are so much better?
Then Noah moves in next door. Moody, grumpy and way too opinionated, her new neighbour threatens to turn her peaceful sanctuary into a war zone. But with a gardening contest fast approaching, Gillian needs to keep her eye on the prize – and cultivate her happy place on her own terms.
