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.
Only Child by Rhiannon Navin
I’ve had an unread ARC of this from NetGalley for longer than I should have but I finally picked it up this week and am finding it gripping so far.
Trauma: From Lockerbie to 7/7: How Trauma Affects Our Minds And How We Fight Back by Gordon Turnbull
I’ve been reading this one on and off for a week or so now and am finding it utterly fascinating. I’m always interested in reading about trauma having suffered from PTSD myself and this book is particularly good. This book looks at Turnbull’s career but also how he, and others in psychiatry, came to understand trauma and how best to treat it.
No More Plastic by Martin Dorey
I bought this in the kindle sale this week and it was an okay read. I was a little disappointed because I didn’t really learn anything that I didn’t know before but it is a good book to get you motivated to think more about how much plastic we use and to start doing something about it.
The Story Keeper by Anna Mazzola
This is such a fantastic novel – really atmospheric and gripping. I’ve posted my review of this on my blog today so please check that out if you’d like to know more.
The Signature of All Things by Elizabeth Gilbert
I half read and half listened to this book and I very much enjoyed it. It worked really well as an audio book and I think listening to it heightened my enjoyment.
The Rumour by Lesley Kara
This book was so good! I found it near impossible to put down and loved every minute that I spent reading it. I hope to have my review posted in the next few days so please look out for that.
The Hunting Party by Lucy Foley
This was an enjoyable read, and is a perfect book for this time of year. I would’ve liked a bit more depth to the characters but none-the-less this is a page turner.
The Liar’s Girl by Catherine Ryan Howard
I loved this novel – it was thrilling and gripping and I couldn’t put it down. I’ve already reviewed this one so if you’d like to read my thoughts on it please click here.
The Mermaid and Mrs Hancock by Imogen Hermes Gowar
I got this book for Christmas and it was my first read of 2019 and what a read it was! I absolutely adored this novel and feel sure that it will make my top books of this year. I already want to read it again!
Ideal Angels by Robert Welbourn
This is a bit different to my usual reads so I’m really looking forward to reading it in the coming days, I think it’s going to be a good one!
Into the Silent Sea by Claire Stibbe
I’m on the blog tour for this one in a couple of weeks so am hoping to read it this week. I did read the opening chapter when the book arrived and I feel sure that I’m going to really enjoy this one.
Dirty Little Secrets by Jo Spain
I really enjoyed The Confession by Jo Spain so when I spotted her new one on NetGalley just before Christmas I couldn’t resist requesting it. It’s been calling to me ever since and I can’t resist any longer!

I am drawn to The Story Keeper and The Liar’s Girl. Thanks for sharing. Here’s MY WWW POST
Trauma sounds fascinating, I hadn’t heard of that one.
Glad you enjoyed The Rumour.
Just finished The Puppet Show by M.W. Craven and it was brilliant.
I can’t wait to read Dirty Little Secrets. I had it planned for this week but I’ve had to push it back for other commitments.
I think I have The Hunting Party on my (overflowing) Netgalley shelf. Must check it out.
You’ve got such a great group of books here, Hayley! I’m especially interested in The Story Keeper. I keep hearing good things about it, but just haven’t got to it yet.
So many books on there I have to read and want to read!! Here is my http://zooloosbookdiary.co.uk/www-wednesdays-9th-janaury-2019-www
Oh, so many good books, Hayley! I loved The Mermaid and Mrs. Hancock too! A special read!
I thought Only Child was fantastic! I really hope you like it!
Looking forward to your review of The Rumour! I really need to hop onto Book Depository and purchase it. It won’t be out in the US until summer and I don’t know if I can wait that long 😦
I am looking forward to your review of The Rumour!
As always a fantastic array of books Hayley – I’ve read Only Child and just want to say you have nothing on my overdue NetGalley reads, the one up on my blog tomorrow was published nearly 3 years ago!
Okay, my wish list just grew, a bunch! LOL So many of these look like perfect reads for me.
