This Week in Books (20 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.



Jar of Hearts by Jennifer Hillier

This book is so good!I requested it on NetGalley after seeing a lot of bloggers raving about it and it is more than living up to its hype so far!

F*** You Very Much by Danny Wallace

I’m still dipping in and out of this one and really enjoying it now. It’s amusing in places and shocking in others but altogether a good read.

The AfterLife of Walter Augustus by Hannah M. Lynn

This book is fab, I’m really enjoying it. It’s making me think about the idea of the afterlife and how it all works, and I love the characters.

Girl Up by Laura Bates

I’m reading this one as and when I’m in the mood to come back to it but I’m still finding it interesting. I wish it existed when I was a teenager.



A Deadly Thaw by Sarah Ward

This novel was brilliant, I devoured it! I already can’t wait to get started on the next book in the series, A Patient Fury, and expect to pick that up in the next couple of weeks.

The Lido by Libby Page

I found this to be such a gorgeous and moving read, it stole a piece of my heart! I’m still trying to compose my thoughts into a review but hopefully I’ll get something written and posted very soon.

The Date by Louise Jensen

I loved this book! It was gripping and unsettling and I literally read it in one sitting because I just couldn’t put it down. I posted my review of this yesterday so you can read more of what I thought here if you’d like to.

The Woman in the Window by A. J. Finn

This book was different to what I was expecting it to be but I did really like the writing style. I’m hoping to get my review finished and posted by next week.



The Craftsman by Sharon Bolton

I treated myself to the hardback of this in the week it was released so I’m really keen to read it. I love Sharon Bolton’s writing so I’m sure I’m going to love this book!

Let me Lie by Clare Mackintosh

My husband bought me the hardback of this for Easter and I’m so keen to read it. It’s one of my #20BooksOfSummer so I’m hoping to can get to read it this week.

In Bloom by C. J. Skuse

Sweet Pea was one of my favourite books of last year so I was thrilled to hear that a sequel was coming out soon. I was so excited when I got approved to read it on NetGalley and I simply can’t wait any longer to read it!

  1. I wish I could read several books at times, although at the moment I kinda do because of work, haha! I couldn’t pick my next read for today’s post, I’ll see what my mood feels like reading!
    I am so glad you enjoyed The Date!! xxx

  2. Hooray you loved The Lido! I knew you would! My husband read it on audio book after I’d raved about it and he loved it too, even though he hadn’t realised it was based on A REAL LIDO and we cried in different places.

    I’ve finished Benjamin Zephaniah’s wonderful autobiography, I’m currently reading George Eliots “Tales from Clerical Life” (two down, one to go, not LOVING it, which is sad) and about to start a book about the different strands of religious life in Roman Britain.

    Happy reading!

    • I adored The Lido and now I’m struggling to review it because I loved it so much!
      It’s a shame you’re not enjoying the George Eliot as much as you hoped. I hope your next book is more enjoyable for you.
      Happy reading to you too!

  3. It looks like you’re having a good reading week, Hayley! And you’ve reminded me that I really must read some Clare Mackintosh. I keep hearing such great things about her work…

  4. Everytime I see a Clare Mackintosh book I want to run and cry, I’ve had her on my tbr for so long (all of her books), but she just keeps getting pushed out! Great stack, looking forwward to The Date and The Lido too!

  5. These all look like excellent reads! I wasn’t able to do my This Week in Books post this week, but I recently finished The Silent Companions, and I’m now reading The Tall Man. As to what’s next – your guess is as good as mine! Happy reading! 🙂
