Current Reads

No Time Like the Future by Michael J. Fox

My husband bought me this book in hardback as a surprise and I was so thrilled when I opened it. I’m a huge fan of Michael J. Fox and am inspired by the way he has dealt with his Parkinson’s Disease and disability so I’m really enjoying reading this one. I can really identify with a lot of what he says about how you find ways to adapt your life to what your abilities are so I’m keen to read more of this one.

People Like Her by Ellory Lloyd

I’ve only just started this one after buying it in the Kindle sale on Monday but I’ve been eagerly anticipating it and I’m really enjoying it so far. It’s all about how a woman makes out her life as a mother is more messy and hectic that it really is in order to build her social media profile!

Everything is Beautiful by Eleanor Ray

I’m listening to this one on audiobook from NetGalley and am hooked. It follows a woman who has become isolated and she lives in a house filled with her treasures. I’m only a short way into this one but I feel really connected to this story and I’m really looking forward to getting a chance to listening to more.

The Things We Left Unsaid by Emma Kennedy

I’ve shamefully had an ARC of this one on my NetGalley shelf for about a year and to make it worse when I finally picked it up I fell in love with the writing and the story within a few pages so I’m really kicking myself for not picking it up so sooner. Anyway, the main thing is that I am loving this book and have been reading it every chance I get.

Recent Reads

The Last Thing to Burn by Will Dean

This is my first Will Dean novel and it definitely won’t be my last! This novel is incredibly hard to read at times but it’s one of those books that you can’t look away from (and nor should you). This is a book that I’m sure will stay with me for a long time to come.

Life in Pieces by Dawn O’Porter

This is the author’s story of what the first few months of the pandemic were like for her and her family. I love O’Porter’s writing, her novels are fabulous, but this was a little hit and miss for me. Some parts of it were very funny and some very moving but then there were sections that just didn’t hold my interest. It was still a good read though and I’m glad I finally picked it up.

The Twenty Seven Club by Lucy Nichol

This book was such a brilliant, nostalgic and moving read. I loved every single minute that I spent reading it! I’ll be reviewing this one next week so look out for my full thoughts then but in the meantime I highly recommend it!

The Girl in the Missing Poster by Barbara Copperthwaite

This was the first book I’ve read by this author but it absolutely won’t be my last! I thoroughly enjoyed this book and was kept on my toes all the way through, which doesn’t happen to me very often with thrillers.

What I Might Read Next

The Louder I Will Sing by Lee Lawrence

New Boy by Tracy Chevalier

The Hidden Girls by Rebecca Whitney

As is now the norm for me, I have no idea what I’ll read next but the above books are the ones that most appeal to me as I’m writing this post. 🙂

    • Thank you 🙂 Yes I always have multiple books on the go at once – I find that this way I’m nearly always in the mood to be reading one of them. I usually pick different genres and formats and it keeps them all separate in my head. 🙂

      • I really never understood how anyone could read like that until I recently took up the habit myself. It makes a lot of sense. It just feels a lot slower going than consuming one book at a time. Still, that’s one heck of a line up!

        • It does seem slower at times when you have multiple books on the go at once but then you have times when you suddenly finish three books in quick succession. I have occasionally read one book at a time but generally I always like to have multiple books started at any one time.

          • I’ve noticed that, too.. and then I end up with three reviews to write. 😆
            Really, though, I’ve actually started to enjoy reading several.. it gives me options for whatever mood I’m in.

  1. So many good ones on your list tis week, Hayley! I’ve always liked Michael J. Fox, too, and respected the way he’s dealt with his disability. He’s a genuinely good person and a talented actor. I’m glad you’re enjoying that book. I’m glad to hear your other books are good reads, too!

  2. I have had to make a reading plan this month as I have Wales Reading Month, my two Anne Tylers and several review books. Yet I started reading a light novel I DNFd and now reading a management fable …
