The Murder of Graham Catton by Katie Lowe
I just started reading this one yesterday but I’m already hooked and am really keen to see where this is going.
This Lovely City by Louise Hare
I haven’t had much chance for audio book listening this week so I’m not much further into this one. My husband is back at work next week though so I’ll be back to listening to books throughout the day so I hope to finish this one then.
I reviewed this book yesterday so you can find my full thoughts by clicking the title above. I very much enjoyed this one though and I recommend all three books in the series!
Falling by T. J. Newman
This is a very fast paced book following a plane hijacking and I couldn’t put this down. I ended up going to be very late as I simply had to know how it was going to end.
The Killing Kind by Jane Casey
This is a standalone book and I devoured it. It follows a barrister who believes a man she once defended is stalking her and wants her dead. The cat and mouse element of this novel is so tense and I found it very hard to put down.
One Last Time by Helga Flatland
This is a beautiful novel following three generations of a family when matriarch is diagnosed with terminal cancer. It’s such a moving novel but never depressing. This is my favourite book of the year so far – I’ll be reviewing it in June for the blog tour.
Malibu Rising by Taylor Jenkins Reid
I very much enjoyed this novel. It follows the Riva family over the years in the build up to a big star-studded party that Nina hosts every year. I loved reading about the dynamics in this family and seeing how they all dealt with things that happened. I recommend this one.
What I Might Read Next
Sorrow and Bliss by Meg Mason
True Crime Story by Joseph Knox
The Outsiders by James Corbett
I’m still focusing on reading review books and this week I got approved for a couple more NetGalley books which are due to be published imminently so those are the first two on my reading plan for this week. The Outsiders was in my plans for last week but I didn’t quite get to it so I definitely want to pick this one up in the coming days.

Ooh, what new NetGalley books have you got? My oldest one is done and off the list but I have five published in June (there were six but I’ve read one of them already).
I just finished The Other Black Girl which I actually stayed up past bedtime to finish last night (I can’t remember the last time I did that!). I am still reading Burning the Books for review on 1 June for the Wolfson Prize blog tour, but apart from that I have a book space – I think I’ll pull something off the older bit of the TBR as I’ll be skipping through it for 20 Books of Summer, and hope I can finish it by the end of the month.
The Other Black Girl must have been good if it kept you up past your bedtime! I missed it on NG but have added it to my must buy list. What are you reading first for 20 Books of Summer?
Yes, it was superb! I’ve read Jonathan van Ness’ memoir and I’m on to a book about an African boy who harnessed wind power to bring electricity and water to his village.
I’ll be reading the final chapters of The Killing Kind tomorrow. I’m reading it via the online book club Pigeonhole so it’s released into the app a few chapters at a time. Very tense section today and can’t wait to find out how it all wraps up.

I hope you enjoyed the end of The Killing Kind. I thought it was really good, I predicted some of it but not all of it.
The Murder of Graham Cotton looks good! Can’t wait to hear more. Happy reading 📖
It was a good read, you do need to suspend disbelief but it’s an enjoyable read all the same.
Glad you enjoyed Malibu Rising, I might spend my next audible credit on it!
I did, it was really good. I hope you enjoy it if you decide to get it on Audible. 🙂 x
