I started listening to the audiobook of Behind Closed Doors by B. A. Paris yesterday and am already two thirds through it! It’s the first of this author’s books and the only one (apart from her most recent) that I hadn’t read. I’m definitely hooked and am intrigued to see how it’s all going to end.
I also started reading We Are Not Like Them by Christina Pride and Jo Piazza from my NetGalley shelf. I found this one hard to get in to but now I’m a few chapters in I’m gripped and am keen to read more today.
I started Woke Up This Morning by Michael Imperioli and am still really enjoying it. It’s a good book to dip in and out of so that’s how I’ve been reading it so far.
I finished reading Tuesday’s Gone by Nicci French this week and enjoyed it every bit as much as the first book in the series so I shall definitely be moving on too the next book very, very soon!
I’ve been sorting out my books and kindle books recently and trying to organise my Christmas books. I wasn’t sure whether Coming Home to Glendale Hall by Victoria Walters was a festive read or not so I decided to read the first chapter to find out. I then got so absorbed in the story that I just kept on reading and I loved this one. It’s set in winter and features a lot of Christmas so it’s a good one to add to your festive TBR stacks!
I had a paperback of The Memory Chamber by Holly Cave and somehow had also bought the audiobook so I part read and part listened to this one. I enjoyed it but it wasn’t quite what I was expecting it to be.
I found Soham: A Story of Our Times by Nicci Gerrard in the depths of my bookcase during my recent re-organising and as it’s a short book I decided to read it there and then. It’s an older book now but it’s still relevant and I would recommend it.
Make My Wish Come True by Fiona Harper is another book that I wasn’t sure if it was going to be Christmassy or not and on reading the first couple of chapters ended up reading the whole thing! I very much enjoyed this one and definitely recommend it if you’re looking for a feel-good festive read!
I also listened to The Secret House of Death by Ruth Rendell as part of the free Audible books section and I found this really engrossing.
What I Might Read Next
I’m a big fan of Shaun Ryder so when I spotted his new audio book How to be a Rock Star on NetGalley last week I immediately requested it and am thrilled to have been approved. I hope I get a chance to start listening to this one as I think it’s going to be a fun listen!
It still feels a bit early to be reading Christmas books but I find October such a long and miserable month so starting on a festive book feels like the perfect cosy escape so I’m hoping to pick up A Bookshop Christmas by Rachel Burton.
I was approved to read Survive the Night by Riley Sager on NetGalley a long time ago now but it’s due to be published in December so it feels like a good time to read it. I’ve enjoyed all of his previous books so I have high hopes for this one!

I love the Nicci French books, especially the Frieda Klein series. I also enjoy B.A. Paris’s books, and recently read and loved Behind Closed Doors. Thanks for sharing.
Here’s my MY WWW POST
Enjoy your festive reads, I’m definitely not feeling the Christmas spirit yet but I know the day itself will be here before I know it so this was a really good reminder to start planning present-buying, especially for my nieces and nephew overseas.

I just read We Are Not Like Them and really raced through it so I hope you get caught up in the story now. I finished my Anne Tyler last night (handily as my review is due today!) and so am in the funny position of starting two new books this morning – Jan Morris’ final, posthumous, book, Allegorizings, and Pragya Agarwal’s Sway: Unravelling Unconscious Bias (I won The End of Bias on NetGalley but wanted to read this lend from a friend first!).
The Frieda Klein series is very good, I’m running behind this week already, but I’m currently reading I Shot the Devil by Ruth McIvers
I’ve heard a lot of great things about Survive the Night. Hope you enjoy it! Happy reading 👻
I love that Coming Home to Glendale Hall pulled you in so much you had to keep reading. That’s a sign of a good book.
I loved The Memory Chamber! Sorry it wasn’t quite what you expected, but I hope you enjoyed it despite that! 🙂
Gosh it’s many years since I read a Ruth Rendell. I used to love her books so I don’t know why she’s dropped off my reading list. Is this a recent issue?
Just starting The Dilemma by B A Paris!!! Loved Beyond Closed, enjoy!
