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.
Good Samaritans by Will Carver
This book is so good! It’s very twisted but it’s one of those books that I just don’t want to put down. I’ll be reviewing this for the blog tour in a couple of weeks time but I can already say for definite that I highly recommend it!
Jonathan Strange and Mr Norrell by Susannah Clarke
I’ve had this book on my TBR for absolutely ages and recently got the audio book so I’m part listening and part reading it. I’m really enjoying it, it’s different to what I normally read and it’s so refreshing.
The Diary of Two Nobodies by Mary Killen and Giles Wood
I was already part way through this when I made my non-fiction November TBR so I didn’t put it on the list. I love Gogglebox and find Giles and Mary very entertaining so it’s interesting to read more about them.
Mercury and Me by Jim Hutton
This is the third non-fiction November TBR book that I’ve read this month so far! I just finished this yesterday and it was okay. I’m a huge Freddie Mercury fan but this isn’t the best book I’ve ever read about him. I think it’s hard when it’s a memoir from a loved one of the famous person as there is always going to be bias.
Decluttering at the Speed of Life by Dana K. White
This is the second book from my non-fiction TBR that I’ve read in November and I enjoyed this one. I feel like I’m a decluttering obsessive now so I don’t really need these self-help books anymore but I still like to read them. This book just really reminded me how far I’ve come and still gave me some great tips on how to make sure I keep on track. I’d recommend this to anyone who wants to declutter but has a very busy life.
Three Amazing Things About You by Jill Mansell
I’ve had this on my TBR ever since the day it was published but I’ve kept putting it off because it looked like it could be an emotional read. I’m so glad I read it because although it was emotional, it was also a lovely read and I really enjoyed it.
A Prayer for Owen Meany by John Irving
I’m embarrassed to admit that I’ve owned various copies of this book ever since it was published but have never managed to actually get around to reading it. I’m kicking myself now though because I picked it up at the weekend and read it in just a couple of days. I really, really enjoyed it!
I completely and utterly fell in love with this short story collection – it was empowering, inspiring and thought-provoking and I highly recommend it. If you want to know more about what I thought, here is my review!
Waco by David Thidebeau
This is a review book that has been on my TBR for quite a while now so I put it on my non-fiction November list and it was the first book I picked up this month. I found it such a fascinating read. I’ll be writing a review for it as soon as I’ve got my thoughts together.
The List That Changed Everything by Olivia Beirne
I’m on the blog tour for this book later this month and I’ve been so looking forward to reading it that I can’t wait any longer to start it.
Bouncing Back with a Bang by Geraldine Ward
This is a poetry collection and I’m just in the mood for poetry so it seems the right time to pick this book up.
Truth or Dare edited by Justine Picardie
This is a collection of essays that I’ve got on my non-fiction November TBR and it seems perfect for dipping in and out of so I’m planning on picking this up next.

You have such a great variety of books here, Hayley! I’ve heard very good things about Mercury and Me, and I’m pleased to see that one on your list. I hope you’ll post a review.
That is quite the mix on reading material. And most of these are new to me.I read so much horror in October and featuring cozies this month. I’m thinking I might mix in some genres I don’t normally read.
What a wonderful selection of very different books. Enjoy!
These all look so good…I’ve been meaning to read Jill Mansell, too. Enjoy! Here’s MY WWW POST
Fabulous selection of books!
What a great selection! I love how much variety there is here. And I loved Owen Meany!
I’m so pleased you liked Roar. I’m looking forward to it!
A great selection of books – I’m very tempted by the decluttering book as I certainly can do with any expert advice… Happy reading, Hayley
I am glad you are enjoying Will Carver’s book. So twisted and just awesome 🙂 I wonder what he’ll come up with next! Happy reading, lovely Hayley! xxx
Good Samaritans looks interesting! I’m looking forward to seeing your review on that!
Interesting to see, several books that are new to me.. my interest is piqued by The List that Changed my Life most though.. I love books where there’s lots of personal development and have a happy and heart-warming ending! Happy reading lovely and thank you for stopping by as well!
A great variety of book! The List that Changed my Life looks interesting to me, too. I have recently finished Krissy Moehl’s “Running your first Ultra” (eeps) and am reading Mary Webb’s slightly hysterical and overwrought but very powerful “Gone to Earth” with an Iris Murdoch up next.
I’ve heard such great things about Good Samaritans! Have a wonderful week.
Wow, so many books and I haven’t read any of them! I should be ashamed! LOL
Great variety of books! I am looking forward to reading Good Samaritan! Some interesting books I’ve not heard of before x
The decluttering one sounds amazing! You’ve got so much read in the last week – and lots of great books still to come. Hope they are all good!
