True Crime Story by Joseph Knox
This is such an intriguing book, I’m so keen to keep reading to see where it goes next!
All the Young Men by Ruth Coker Burks
This is an incredible memoir and Ruth is such an amazing woman. I hope to read more of it this week.
Don’t Touch My Hair by Emma Dabiri
I borrowed the audio book of this from the library and I found it such a fascinating book from which I learnt a lot that I didn’t know. I’d quite like to buy a kindle copy of this one so that I can read it again in the future.
Sorrow and Bliss by Meg Mason
This is a stunning book – it’s both very moving and very funny, it captures what it’s like to live with a mental illness so well. I recommend it.
What I Might Read Next
Passenger List by John Dryden
This is How We Are Human by Louise Beech
The Minimalist Home by Joshua Becker
As is now the norm for me I’m planning on reading the next book on my NetGalley shelf which is Passenger List. I also would like to read This is How We Are Human as it’s for a forthcoming blog tour and I just know I’m going to adore it. The final book is off my own TBR and is one that I’m keen to read while I’m in the middle of a post-lockdown clear out in my home.

I keep seeing good things about True Crime Story, I’ll have to give it a try.

True Crime Story is excellent, I found it so hard to put down. I definitely recommend it.
Passenger List looks interesting. I can’t wait to hear more about it. Happy reading!
Passenger List was good, it’s not the best thriller ever but it kept me turning the pages all the way through. I hope to get my review written very soon.
So many tempting books! Thanks for sharing.
Every time I see True Crime Story I’m intrigued. I need to look into reading that one myself!
True Crime Story is so good, it felt different to other crime thrillers and really had me hooked all the way through. I recommend it!
Hello Hayley. I just had to comment here. I began a book this morning – The Silence of the Girls by Pat Barker – which was recommended here on WordPress. I can’t put it down; I LOVE it! Thanks to whoever reviewed it. I often write down books I find here but I can never remember who reviewed which!
I hope you continued to enjoy The Silence of the Girls. It’s not one I’ve read but it is on my list. I’m like you in that I can never remember who reviewed books that I went on to read and love.
Don’t Touch My Hair is excellent, isn’t it. There was a TV programme she did that we’ve shamefully recorded but have yet to watch.
I am currently reading Ruby Ferguson’s charming “Apricot Sky” although it’s two books in one, a children’s adventure and a light love story, and William Kamkwaba and Bryan Mealer’s The Boy who Harnessed the Wind, a lovely nonfiction book about a young inventor in Malawi. Next up will be some more 20 Books of Summer and NetGalley reads but not sure which ones quite yet.
Passenger List sounds great and I can’t wait to read This Is How We Are Human! Knowing Louise Beech I already feel it in my bones that I’m going to love it. I hope you will enjoy your books this week and happy reading! xx
All the Young Men sounds a fascinating though maybe harrowing (?) book?
I’m currently reading Bitter Fruit by Achmat Dangor which is set in post Apartheid South Africa. It’s on my 20booksofsummer list
