Books I Bought This week
If Beale Street Could Talk by James Baldwin
I’ve been wanting to read this book for such a long time and now I keep seeing the film trailer it’s made me pick it up. I hope to read this very soon.
Scrublands by Chris Hammer
I’ve seen some good reviews of this and so when I spotted it on sale on Kindle this week I snapped it up.
The Next Girl by Carla Kovach
This was an impulse by as I loved the sound of the blurb, and it’s the first in a new series so I’m sold!
Day of the Accident by Nuala Ellwood
I didn’t love this author’s previous novel but I liked her writing style so have been eager to read this one. It sounds like my kind of book so I’m hoping to get to this one before too long.
One More Lie by Amy Lloyd
I really enjoyed Amy Lloyd’s previous novel (you can read my review for The Innocent Wife here if you’d like to) so have been anticipating this new one. I plan on reading this one very soon.
Don’t You Forget About Me by Mhairi McFarlane
I only started reading Mhairi McFarlane’s novels last year but I loved them so couldn’t resist grabbing a copy of her new one!
The Perfect Stranger by Megan Miranda
I haven’t read any of this author’s novels before but they all sound so good. I’m really looking forward to starting this one.
Vulgar Favours: The Assassination of Gianni Versace by Maureen Orth
I’m planning on watching the TV series based on this book soon and I just know that it will make me want to read the book so I pre-empted myself and bought it ready!
Freddie Mercury: The Biography by Laura Jackson
I’ve read so many books about Freddie Mercury but I can never resist buying another one when I spot one.
Dancing in the Rain by Lynn Joseph
I’ve wanted to read this book for so long and decided to treat myself this week with part of my birthday book vouchers. It’s a short book so I plan on getting to it in between review books.
The Perfect Child by Lucinda Berry
This was my Kindle First pick for February. I left it late to choose a book last month but I’m glad I got this one before the choices changed.
ARCS I Received This Week
The Hidden Wife by Amanda Reynolds
This sounds like such an intriguing book so I’m really happy to have an ARC to read soon.
Nobody’s Wife by Laura Pearson
I was delighted to be approved to read this one on NetGalley as it sounds like such an interesting novel.
Three Hours by Rosamund Lupton
I actually squealed with delight when my request for this book got approved as I absolutely love Rosamund Lupton’s writing. I’m so excited to read this but it’s not due out until much later in the year so I’m going to try and hold off for a little while.
I also received a signed copy of The Joyce Girl by Annabel Abbs, which has a quote in it from my review. It was such a lovely gift to receive and means a lot to me. This book became a favourite of mine after I read it so this new copy is one I will treasure. Click here to read my original review of this book if you’d like to know more about it. Annabel Abbs also wrote a brilliant guest post about mental health for my blog when the book was first published so you can also read that here if you’d like to.
