Books and eBooks
The Choke by Sofie Laguna
I won this book just before Christmas and it arrived a few days ago. I didn’t know a huge amount about it but it sounds like such a good read and I’m looking forward to getting to it.
Lady in the Lake by Laura Lippman
I’ve been wanting to read this one ever since it was published last year so when I spotted it in the latest Kindle book sale I snapped it up. I hope to get to this soon.
Five Steps to Happy by Ella Dove
I also bought this in this Kindle sale as it sounds like such an interesting novel. It’s fiction and about coming to terms with disability so I really want to read this one as soon as I can.
A Poem For Every Day of the Year by Allie Esiri
This was an Audible daily deal earlier this week and I snapped it up. I think it’ll be lovely to listen to a poem each day and I’m keen to start this one.
After Dark by Dominic Nolan
I squealed when a surprise copy of this book arrived in the post for me last week! I loved the author’s previous book (it was only of my Top 40 books of 2019!) so I’m super excited to have a copy of the sequel! I’ll definitely be reading this soon.
Mine by Clare Empson
I was surprised and delighted to get approved to read this one on NetGalley yesterday. I must have requested it long enough ago that I’d forgotten about it but I’m very happy to have a copy to read as I loved the author’s previous novel.
Big Lies in a Small Town by Diane Chamberlain
I was sorting through my email this week and spotted an email I’d missed from the publisher about this book – they’d sent me a pre-approved link to read this from NetGalley so I was thrilled to click it and find the book was still there.
Have you bought any new books over the last week? Please tell me below. 🙂 If you join in with Stacking the Shelves please feel free to leave your link and I’ll make sure to read and comment on your post.

You have some nice ones there, Hayley. There’s a good mix there of different sorts of fiction, as well as nonfic. I’ll be especially interested in what you think of the LIppman – I like her work a lot.
I’m excited to read all these new books. I’ve been wanting to get the Laura Lippman book for ages as it sounds so good.
Oh, I loved Big Lies in a Small Town. Hope you do, too.
Love the look of After Dark. Enjoy them all!
I couldn’t resist it as I loved her previous novel The Dream Daughter and it really got me back into reading Diane Chamberlain so I’m looking forward to it. Thank you 🙂
I’ve read book by Laura Lippman and really liked it. I want to read more by her. Great haul!
Thank you 🙂 I think I’ve only read one of her previous books but I enjoyed it so really wanted to read this one.
These books look great. I am especially interested in Big Lies in a Small Town. I love books set in small towns. It always SEEMS like nothing is going on, yet there’s always lots of drama under the surface. Have a great week.
Thank you 🙂 I love books set in small towns too, I find them endlessly fascinating. Hope you have a great week too.
A treasure trove of new books! I am really curious about the Poem a Day book. I don’t subscribe to Audible anymore. I wonder if I can find a print version. Mine sounds like it will be a good one! They all do, really. I hope you enjoy all your new books! Have a Happy New Year!
Thank you so much 🙂 I’m pretty sure that the Poem a Day book is available as a hardcover book so I hope you manage to get hold of a copy. I’m looking forward to listening to it over the year. Hope you have a very Happy new Year too! 🙂
I’ll be reading Big Lies in a Small Town soon. The publisher sent me a copy a while ago, but I wanted to wait a bit before I read it. I hear it’s really good!
I’ve heard only good things about it too. Hope we both enjoy it 🙂

Even though I am now on a book buying ban I did manage to get a few books this past week.
That cover for A Poem A Day is beautiful! You’ll have to keep me posted on how it is.
I can never stick to a book buying ban, I keep trying to balance how many books I read with how many I acquire but I don’t do very well with that either!
I need to start listening to A Poem A Day this week as I want to get in the habit of listening to one each day. I’ll try to remember to post about it. 🙂
Thanks for stopping by. 🙂
I’m really looking forward to Lippman’s “Lady in the lake”.
Me too! It sounds like such a good read, doesn’t it?
Great haul! I finished Big Lies In A Small Town a few days ago and it is without doubt an excellent read; I hope you will enjoy it as well as the other titles! xx
Thank you 🙂 I just read your review and I’m so keen to get to the book now. xx
I know Lady in the Lake has had mixed reviews, but I really liked it and I hope you do as well Hayley.
