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.
I Owe You One by Sophie Kinsella
I love Sophie Kinsella’s writing so was delighted when I was picked to read this new book on PigeonHole over the next few days. I read the first part yesterday and loved it so I’m excited to read more very soon!
The Innocent Man by John Grisham
My husband and I binge-watched the Netflix series of this over the weekend and I immediately wanted to know more so I bought the book. I’m about half-way through it now and finding it fascinating and utterly shocking.
Gone by Midnight by Candice Fox
I’m back reading this book now after a break due to needing to read something more comforting. I’m keen to find out how this book is going to turn out!
Trauma: From Lockerbie to 7/7: How Trauma Affects Our Minds And How We Fight Back by Gordon Turnbull
I’m also back reading this book and think I’ll probably finish it in the next day or two. It’s such a fascinating look at PTSD and one that I know I’ll be thinking about for some time to come.
Someone Like Me by M. R. Carey
I’m not sure what I feel about this book – I was sent it for review because I like thrillers but it wasn’t really what I expected it to be. I did read it quite quickly so it held my attention but I don’t know whether I enjoyed it or not. I shall ponder on it some more before I write a review.
The Cactus by Sarah Hayward
I’ve had a gorgeous hardback copy of this book on my TBR for around a year now but I finally picked it up a few days ago and read it in one sitting! It’s such a gorgeous book – it made me laugh and it made me cry. I know this is a book that will stay with me.
I very much enjoyed this novel, it’s so honest and moving and beautifully written. I’ve already reviewed this earlier this week so you can find my full review here if you’d like to know more.
Tilly and the Book Wanderers: Pages and Co. #1 by Anna James
I saved this book to read on a day last week that I knew I’d be feeling in need of a comfort read and this book was everything I needed it to be and more. I adored it! It’s made me dig out my copy of A Little Princess to re-read it. I already can’t wait for the next book in the Pages & Co. series!
Senseless by Anna Lickley
I really enjoyed this novel. The representation of disability was done really well without it being the sole focus of the book. I’ll be reviewing this one for the blog tour in a couple of weeks time.
A Very English Scandal: Sex, Lies and a Murder Plot at the Heart of the Establishment by John Preston
I’ve had the audio book on my TBR for a year or two but I finally listened to it over the last week and found it such a fascinating book. I already knew about what happened but it was good to learn more of the details.
Notes on a Nervous Planet by Matt Haig
I received this book for Christmas and picked it up a few days ago and found it really helpful. It made me think about my own use of social media and the impact it has on my mood. I recommend this one, especially if you suffer from anxiety.
All the Little Lies by Chris Curran
I had wanted to read this novel over the last week but I didn’t manage to pick it up so it’s on my TBR for the coming week. I’m really looking forward to getting to this one.
Dirty Little Secrets by Jo Spain
I’ve been eagerly anticipating this book and am just in the mood to read it so I hope to get to it in the coming days.
Last Ones Left Alive by Sarah Davis-Goff
I was lucky to receive a surprise ARC of this book in the post and it sounds like a different book to my normal reads but it’s piqued my interest and I’d like to read it very soon.
