Time, once again, to take a look at what I’m currently reading, what I am planning on reading in the coming week, and what ARCS I have been approved for from NetGalley this week.
Well, all I can say is that I am glad I didn’t have a big week of reading scheduled. I only just managed to finish what I had planned, never mind being able to slip in one from my backlist! It was one of those weeks where if it could possibly go wrong, it did! I completely lost Thursday, so sorry there was no post, but the day just disappeared without trace. . . So here’s to a better week to come.
Currently I am reading
Haven’t actually started this yet, but it is loaded and waiting to be read once I have mowed the lawn.
And I am listening to
which I am just loving! I have no idea where it is going, but enjoying the journey.
In the coming week, I am planning on reading
You made a promise to your sister. It could destroy your daughter.
15-year-old Rosie lies in hospital fighting for her life. She’s trying to tell her mother what happened to her, and how she got there, but she can’t speak the words out loud.
Rosie’s mother Toni has a secret. She had a traumatic childhood, and she and her sister Bridget made each other a promise thirty years ago: that they could never speak the truth about what happened to them as children, and that they would protect each other without asking for help from others, no matter what…
Rosie was Toni’s second chance to get things right: a happy, talented girl with her whole life ahead of her. Having lost her husband in a tragic accident, Toni has dedicated her life to keeping Rosie safe from harm.
But Rosie has plans that her mother doesn’t know about. She has dreams and ambitions – of love, of a career, of a life beyond the sheltered existence that her mother has created for her. But the secrets Rosie has been keeping have now put her life in danger.
In order to save Rosie, Toni may have to break her lifelong promise to her sister… and open doors to her past she hoped would remain closed forever.
Be careful who you trust…
The Mailer family is oblivious to the terrible danger that enters their lives when seven-year-old Anthony is referred to the child guidance service by the family GP, following the breakdown of his parents’ marriage.
Fifty-eight-year-old Dr David Galbraith, a sadistic, predatory paedophile, employed as a consultant child psychiatrist, has already murdered one child in the soundproofed cellar below the South Wales Georgian town-house he shares with his wife and two young daughters.
When Anthony becomes Galbraith’s latest obsession he will stop at nothing to make his grotesque fantasies reality.
But can Anthony be saved before it’s too late?
The book includes content that some readers may find disturbing from the start. It is dedicated to survivors everywhere.
Dinner at an ancient Cornish inn leads to one baffling disappearance after another in the latest intriguing Ishmael Jones mystery.
“It’s just a nice weekend, in a nice country inn. Nothing bad is going to happen …”
Ishmael Jones and his partner Penny are attending the re-opening of Tyrone’s Castle, an ancient Cornish inn originally built by smugglers. Over dinner that night, the guests entertain one another with ghost stories inspired by local legends and superstitions. But it would appear that the curse of Tyrone’s Castle has struck for real when one of their number disappears into thin air. And then another . . .
Is the inn really subject to an ancient curse? Sceptical of ghost stories, Ishmael believes the key to the mystery lies in the present rather than the past. But with no bodies, no evidence and no clues to go on, how can he prove it?
Do you notice that the majority of my book covers this week include trees?
And finally, books I have received from NetGalley this week – I am trying to keep my requests to a manageable level, so only three approvals this week.
And there’s another tree!
Don’t forget to let me know what you’re reading and, if you have read any of my upcoming reads, what you thought of them.
Happy reading everyone!
