This Week in Books (13 June 2018)! #TWiB


Today I’m taking in part in This Week in Books, which was started by Lipsyy Lost and Found! If you want to join in you just need to share what you’re reading now, what you’ve read over the last week, and what you hope to read next.




The Afterlife of Walter Augustus by Hannah M. Lynn

I’m really enjoying this book, it’s such a refreshingly different read and is one I love getting back to.

The Woman in the Window by A. J. Finn

I’ve had this on my TBR for a while now and finally picked it up yesterday. It’s not quite what I was expecting but I love the writing so it’s keeping me hooked.

F**k You Very Much by Danny Wallace

I bought this just the other day and started reading it right away. I’m not enjoying it quite as much as I hoped I would but it is interesting to read more about how rudeness spreads, it does make you think.

Girl Up by Laura Bates

I’ve been reading this on and off for the last couple of weeks and am enjoying it. It’s a book that I would recommend for teenagers, and parents of teenagers. I wish it had existed when I was young.



The Fear by C. L. Taylor

I devoured this book in one sitting this week, it was such a thrilling read. I’ve already reviewed it so you can find out more about what I thought here.

Our House by Louise Candlish

This was one of my picks for #20BooksOfSummer and I really enjoyed reading it. I’m a big fan of Louise Candlish’s writing anyway and this book was a great read.

Stay With Me by Ayobami Abedayo

I’ve had this book on my TBR since it was published and I’ve held off reading it because I thought it might be a difficult read for me. I’m so glad that I finally picked it up though as I adored the writing and found it quite a cathartic read.



The Lido by Libby Page

This is my next pick from my #20BooksOfSummer TBR and I am so looking forward to reading this one. I have a feeling it’s going to be a book that I adore!

The Date by Louise Jensen

I was lucky enough to get an ARC of this from NetGalley so I’m really keen to read it as I’ve loved all of Louise Jensen’s books so far and this one sounds excellent!

A Deadly Thaw by Sarah Ward

I’m on the blog tour for the third book in this series next month and have just realised that I haven’t read the second book yet. I do like to read books in order where I can so I’m squeezing this book in this week. I very much enjoyed the first book so I’m looking forward to read this one!

  1. I loved The Woman in the Window…and I’ll be reading Our House soon, too, as I have it waiting patiently on my Kindle.

    I’ve enjoyed some books by Louise Jensen, so The Date is also on my list. Thanks for sharing, and here’s MY WWW POST

  2. You’ve got some fine reads here, Hayley. And I’m especially glad you have A Deadly Thaw on your list. That’s such a good series, and Sarah Ward is a very talented writer. I think you’ll enjoy it.

  3. You will love The Lido, Hayley, I’m sure of it. It’s absolutely wonderful. It touched me to the core and left me in tears.
    I enjoyed The Fear too and have The Woman in the Window and Our House on my TBR pile.

  4. The Date is absolutely fantastic! My new favorite Louise Jensen story… I really like the sound of The Afterlife Of Walter Augustus by the way. I hope you’ll enjoy your books this week and happy reading!

  5. Oh, Girl Up is SO GOOD, I’ve been recommending it all over the place. I wish it had been around while I was growing up, too!

    I’ve read quite a lot this week, Benjamin Zephaniah’s autobiography (reviewing tomorrow) was smashing, and I read Old Baggage and The Bookshop Girl, both great light novels. I’m currently reading George Eliot’s Scenes from Clerical Life, going well not although a bit hard to work my way into, and then I must consult my special reading plan to see what I’m meant to go on to next!
