Thursday Thoughts

I have been working long hours this week and am a bit behind on my reading. ….. so I thought we’d take a look at what I am currently reading, what is coming up next, and what approvals I have had from NetGalley this week.

On the currently reading front, I am 2/3 of the way through

Silent Lies

Silent Lies by Kathryn Croft

an insidiously creepy book which was published by Bookouture this week. It’s one of those books that, as you are reading, you are thinking ‘I can’t believe she’s doing this!’, or ‘What on earth is she thinking?’.

My review will appear Saturday.

I have also started

Sleeping Beauties

Sleeping Beauties by Stephen King and Owen King

This was published at the end of last month by Hodder and Stoughton. In excess of 700 pages, it is not ideal for reading in bed! I am just over 100 pages into this and loving it. Being one of Mr King’s ‘constant readers’ I had to buy the actual book instead of an e-book to add to my collection.


My next read is

Seven Days of Us
 Seven Days of Us byFrancesca Hornak
To be published 31 October by Berkley.
It is the tale of a dysfunctional family forced to spend a week together in isolation.
This week I have been approved by NetGalley to read and review the following books
The Hanged Man (The Bone Field #2)

The Hanged Man (The Bone Field #2) by Simon Kernick

A Kiss Before Killing: Nothing can keep the doctor away...

A Kiss Before Killing: Nothing can keep the doctor away…by Keith McCarthy

The Devil's Claw

The Extraordinary Life of Sam Hell

The Extraordinary Life of Sam Hell by Robert Dugoni

Happy reading everyone, and I’ll see you all tomorrow with my Friday Favorite

I love good quality chocolate. I love the ocean and love to be in, on or beside it. I read any and every where. I am a proud mum and Nana. I like wine, gin, Southern Comfort, a cold Heineken on a hot day. I am very versatile like that. I cross stitch, do jigsaws, garden, and work on a farm. I am an occasional scribbled.
