Wintering by Katherine May
This is a book that I’ve wanted to read for a while now. It’s a book that follows a year in the author’s life that was winter. It’s partly a memoir but partly an exploration of the human condition. Right now feels like a good time to read a book like this so I decided to buy it and hope to read it very soon.
The M Word by Philippa Kay
This is a book all about the menopause and I’ve seen some really good reviews of it so decided to buy it. I feel like forewarned is forearmed and as I don’t have my mum to talk to through this next phase of life finding a book that gives me some good advice and guidance is really important.
A Good Girl’s Guide to Murder by Holly Jackson
I keep seeing this book around and have been thinking about buying it so when I saw it was only 99p yesterday I decided to download it. It’s YA murder mystery and just seems like an easy read for the moment when I’m just getting back to reading again after my slump of recent weeks.
You Were There Too by Colleen Oakley
I bought this one as I loved Rebecca Serle’s In Five Years so much that I want to read more books that are in a similar vein and this one was recommended to me. It sounds like a fun read where two people each dream about the other before they’ve ever met, I think it could be a really lovely summer read!
It Should Have Been Me by Susan Wilkins
I downloaded this audio book on my library app BorrowBox this week as I’m in the mood to listen to a thriller and this one caught my eye. It’s about a murder that was committed years ago and someone was convicted of the crime and sent to prison. But now in the present day a documentary is being made about the case and all may not have been as it seemed in the past. It sounds gripping so I’m keen to listen to it very soon.
Be Careful What You Swipe For by Jemma Forte
I was thrilled when the author offered me a copy of this book as I’d seen it online and thought it looked like a good summer read. It’s about a woman on a dating site looking for a man and she finds one but then it doesn’t work out. It’s a novel about the perils of online dating and trying to find Mr Right. I’m really looking forward to reading this one!

How spooky I’m listening to the audio of Wintering at the moment, it’s really good! xx
As always, Hayley, you have a great selection of books here! I really like the you add variety to your reading lists. I’ve heard of the WIlkins, and wondered if it was good. I hope you’ll enjoy it, and I’ll interested in what you thought.
These all look good, especially Wintering. Thanks for sharing, and enjoy!
Great haul! I hope you will enjoy these. xx
I really need to get my hands on the Holly Jackson! I am a very good girl and I really need a guide to Murder 😉
Haha! I hope you manage to get hold of the Holly Jackson and that you enjoy it.
The only one that came in here was “Blue Door Venture” which I bought so I could read the series and – terrible to relate – just found I ALREADY HAD when I went to shelve the three of her books I read this week!
Oh gosh… I have to admit that I’ve done that before on a couple of occasions too. Oops!
I hope you enjoy all these!
Thank you 🙂
