Books I Bought This week
Blackberry and Wild Rose by Sonia Velton
I’ve seen some great reviews for this book, and it has such a gorgeous cover, that I couldn’t resist treating myself with some birthday money this week. I’m really looking forward to getting lost in this book.
Normal People by Sally Rooney
I couldn’t get on with Conversations with Friends at all, I think perhaps I’m just too old for that book but Normal People really appeals to me so I decided to treat myself to a copy. I’m hoping it lives up to the comparisons reviewers are making to other books that I’ve loved!
Educated by Tara Westover
This book has been on my radar for quite a while now so when I spotted it in a kindle deal earlier this week I snapped it up. I hope to get to this one quite soon.
London Triptych by Jonathan Kemp
I bought this book on a whim – I’d not heard of it before I saw it but when I read the blurb I knew I wanted to read it.
The Rules Do Not Apply by Ariel Levy
This is another book that has been on my radar for a while so when I spotted it in the kindle sale I grabbed it.
This Will Only Hurt a Little by Busy Philipps
I was a big fan of Dawson’s Creek back in the day so this memoir has caught my eye a few times now and I finally decided to buy it!
Mary’s Household Tips and Tricks by Mary Berry
This was an impulse by in a book sale this week! It appeals to me since I’ve decluttered as I still feel like I need to be better organised in some aspects of my home (mainly my very small kitchen!).
Books I Borrowed
‘Kill the Black One First’ by Michael Fuller
I borrowed this on my audio book subscription this week and am listening to it now. It’s a tough listen at times because of the appalling way he was treated at times during his career as a police officer but it’s also a fascinating book. I recommend it.
The Girl Next Door by Phoebe Morgan
I got a copy of this book to read on Pigeonhole but there’s no way I can read on my phone at the moment so I was delighted to find the book on my audio book subscription and I’ve devoured it! It’s such a good read, I definitely recommend it.
Books I Received for Review
Welcome to the Heady Heights by David F. Ross
I love the sound of this book so was delighted to be sent a copy, I’ll definitely be reading this one very soon.
The Conviction of Cora Burns by Carolyn Kirby
This book has been on my eagerly anticipated list so I was thrilled to be sent a copy and an invitation to be on the blog tour. I’ll be reading this one in the next week or so, I can’t wait!
I Know You Know by Gilly Macmillan
I love this author’s novels so am really happy to have a copy of her new book on my kindle. I don’t think this one will be on my TBR for very long!
The Neighbour by Fiona Cummins
I also love this author’s writing so am really keen to read this book as soon as I can. I adore the cover of it, there’s something very creepy about it!
