Resistance: A Songwriter’s Story of Hope, Chance and Courage by Tori Amos
I’m hoping to read this one in the coming days as it’s calling to me from my Kindle!
Passing by Nella Larsen
This is a book that I’ve been meaning to pick up for a long while so when I spotted it this week I decided to grab it. I’m really keen to get to this one.
Home Before Dark by Riley Sager
I’ve read and really enjoyed all of Riley Sager’s previous novels so had to buy this one even though the premise (haunted house) sounds utterly terrifying to me!
Blood Moon by Lucy Cuthew
I’ve already read this one and I thought it was excellent. It’s about a teenage girl and what happens when she gets her period during her first sexual encounter with a boy from school. It’s such a good read and I recommend it!
The Ends of the Earth by Abbie Greaves
I was thrilled to be approved for this one on NetGalley as Abbie Greaves previous novel was one of my favourite books of 2020!
Perimenopause Power by Maisie Hill
I requested this book on a whim when I spotted it as it’s definitely a book that I need to be reading at the moment.
The Appeal by Janice Hallett
As soon as I read the premise of this one I had to request so I’m very happy to now have a copy on my Kindle.
Dead Head by C. J. Skuse
This is the third novel in the Rhiannon (Sweetpea) series so I was really keen to get my hands on it to find out what happened after the end of the previous book!
Quite by Claudia Winkleman
The Midnight Library by Matt Haig
Another Planet: A Teenager in Suburbia by Tracey Thorn

Hope you enjoy Midnight Library and The End of the Earth. I’ve got those to read this year too 😊
Thank you, I’m really looking forward to reading them. I hope you enjoy them too 🙂
I pre-ordered The Appeal after reading Meggy and Jacob’s reviews! xx
It was Meggy’s review that sold the book to me too! 🙂 xx
Nice haul! I have the Larsen and envy you the Amos!
Thank you! I still haven’t read Tori Amos’ book but I’m sure I’m going to love it so must get to it very soon.
You do have some nice books there, Hayley! I’m interested in The Appeal. I’ve been hearing about it and it sounds great. You’ve got a nice variety of other books, too. I hope they get your reading mojo going, and that you really enjoy them all.
Thank you. I’m keen to get to The Appeal as I’ve read some really positive reviews of it. My reading mojo is still a bit up and down but I’m reading again, albeit slowly, so I’m relieved about that.
Love love love Midnight Library
I’m so pleased you loved it, I’m even more keen to read it now! I hope to get to it very soon. 🙂
Great looking books! I have been eyeing The Midnight Library. Enjoy!
Thank you, I can’t wait to read The Midnight Library – I’ve heard such good things about it.
Loved your list, Hayley, thanks. I’m currently reading a thriller, Silent Scream by Angela Marsons, the third volume of A Song of Ice and Fire, and a book on lost words in the Irish language, called Thirty-Two Words for Field by Manchán Magan. Loving all three!
Thank you! I hope you enjoyed the books you were reading. I’ve heard good things about Angela Marsons’ books.
Looks like you have a lot of great reads here, happy reading!
Thank you 🙂
Passing is great – I think you’ll really enjoy it!
I hope to read Passing soon, I’m even more keen to get to it now you’ve said that you think I’ll love it.
I really want to read Quite but I feel it will appear in the local charity shops when they’re open again. And the Tracey Thorn is on my list, I love her so much.
I don’t usually get any more books at this time of year, as my birthday is around the corner. But my lovely friend Verity sent me Raynor Winn’s The Wild Silence in the week – she’d given me The Salt Path for Christmas (did you see my Christmas Pile? Wheeee!) and then was given this one, read it and passed it to me so I had both of them.
Oh and thinking of it, I might have picked up a couple in the Amazon Kindle sale. Oops.
You’re probably right about Quite, I hope you can find a copy in the charity shops once they’re open again. I’m keen to listen to my audio book soon and to read the Tracey Thorn book (I love her too!).
It was my birthday this week and three people bought me books as a surprise and I didn’t already have any of them so I was thrilled!
Dead Head looks great and you know, I didn’t even know it was a series. I really need to make time for the Riley Sager book as well. Lots of good reading ahead for you so I hope you enjoy!
I can’t wait to read Dead Head! The first book is Sweet Pea and the second is In Bloom if you want to read them in order. I’m keen to read the Riley Sager but I’m a bit of a wimp as it sounds quite unnerving! Thank you 🙂
