Hello and a happy Monday to you, book friends! Azula and I had a pretty quiet, restful weekend as Mr. Your Book Friend had lots of plans with friends and was out and about most of the time.
On Saturday, I made a trip to the city for yoga in the park with a friend. On my way home, I stopped by Half Price Books to unload another box of books from my parents’ basement. While they calculated my offer, I browsed the shelves and am forever proud that I wound up leaving with only one new book.
That book is my highlight for this week’s Book Mail post, and it is… Spells for Forgetting by Adrienne Young. This was a Book of the Month a while back, but for some reason I got confused and thought I’d already signed up to receive a copy from Authentic Books. Turns out I picked a different book that month, and I was pretty disappointed when I realized.
Fast forward to browsing at Half Price Books. They always have a ton of Book of the Month editions on the shelves, something I find entertaining to speculate about. And one of the books this time around was Spells for Forgetting. Of course, I had to have it. I’ll probably wait a while to read this one, as it has much more of a fall/winter vibe to me than a summer reading one, but we’ll see where the mood takes me.
