Current Reads

Sorrow and Bliss by Meg Mason

I’ve only just started reading this book and I’m only a few pages into it so I can’t say much about it as yet except that I’m loving it.

All the Young Men by Ruth Coker Burks

This is the book I’ve been most anticipating from my 20 Books of Summer TBR and I’m so glad to finally be reading this one. It’s very moving but Ruth’s story is incredible, I’m keen to read more of this one as soon as I can.

Recent Reads

The Outsiders by James Corbett

This novel is brilliant. I just finished it yesterday and I’m sad that it’s over. It follows a man from 1981 to the present day and it covers real events which are woven through this character’s life. I’ll be reviewing this one soon once I’ve got my thoughts together.

This Lovely City by Louise Hare

I listened to the audio book of this one and I really enjoyed it. It is told from two perspectives and follows these characters in 1950s London. Lawrie arrived from Jamaica on Empire Windrush and is making a life for himself in London but one day he finds a dead baby and is immediately under suspicion. This is such an engaging novel and one that I didn’t want to stop listening to.

The Murder of Graham Catton by Katie Lowe

I enjoyed this novel about a woman whose husband is murdered in their family home and now ten years on the case is in the spotlight again due to a podcast about the murder. This novel does require suspension of disbelief but it’s still such a gripping page turner, it’s a fun read.

What I Might Read Next

Unwell Women by Elinor Cleghorn

True Crime Story by Joseph Knox

The Island Home by Libby Page

The above three books are the next ones to be published from my NetGalley shelf so I hope to get to them in the coming week.

  1. I look forward to hearing more of your thoughts on The Murder of Graham Catton. That one looks really good and I’ve liked some other books by the author. Happy reading!

  2. I can’t find The Island Home on NetGalley weirdly, keep looking and can’t locate it. I will have to buy it instead (ha!). Midweek I was reading Motherland by Jo McMillan, which is about the only Communists in 1970s Tamworth and what happens when they visit East Germany. I moved on to Jonathan van Ness’ autobiography, which was a deeper read than I might have expected. Happy reading!
