Here we are at Sunday and it’s 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.
It’s been a busy week, non-reading wise. I started my new job which I am enjoying more than I expected. But I am having to develop a new routine. . . so at the moment I am all over the place, and will be until I settle into my job properly and get some regular hours organised. Because it is a seven day business, and I am trying to learn about everyone’s functions and place in the organisation, I seem to be at work at some very odd times. Another couple of weeks should see me settled in.
But onto what you really want to know about – books! Currently I am reading, well I haven’t actually started this yet, but will be later today-
and I am going to start listening to
This week I intend to read
‘Grabs you by the metaphorical throat right from the start and doesn’t let up until the end.’ Heat
When Lou Wandsworth ran away to France with her teacher Mike Hughes, she thought he was the love of her life. But Mike wasn’t what he seemed and he left her life in pieces.
Now 32, Lou discovers that he is involved with teenager Chloe Meadows. Determined to make sure history doesn’t repeat itself, she returns home to confront him for the damage he’s caused.
But Mike is a predator of the worst kind, and as Lou tries to bring him to justice, it’s clear that she could once again become his prey…
The million copy Sunday Times bestseller returns with a taut, compelling psychological thriller that will have you glued to the edge of your seat.
The perfect family. A moment that will change everything.
Emma thought she had the perfect life: a beautiful home, a loving husband and a gorgeous son.
She was wrong.
She wakes up in hospital, with no idea how she got there or why her husband and son won’t come to see her. What happened to Emma’s family?
As Emma tries to piece her memories back together, she remembers that her husband was hiding something from her, and that someone was watching their house.
She remembers that she was afraid.
Emma is desperate to find out what happened – and that her loved ones are safe – but remembering the truth could be the most dangerous thing of all…
An addictive and page-turning psychological thriller that will having you looking over your shoulder and checking the doors are locked. If you love B.A. Paris, Shari Lapena and K.L. Slater, The Last Thing I Saw is for you.
Detective Josie Quinn is horrified when she’s called to the house of a mother who had her newborn baby snatched from her arms.
A woman caught fleeing the scene is Josie’s only lead, but when questioned it seems this mysterious girl doesn’t know who she is, where she’s from or why she is so terrified…
Is she a witness, a suspect, or the next victim?
As Josie digs deeper, a letter about a mix-up at a fertility clinic links the nameless girl and the missing child to a spate of killings across the county. Josie is faced with an impossible decision: should she risk the life of one innocent child to save many others… or can she find another way?
And five (yes! 5!) approvals this week. I think I was feeling a little apprehensive about the new job, so I indulged in my version of a shopping spree for stress relief!
Realistically, I don’t know how much reading time I will get this week, so I may be a little overexpectant about what I can actually achieve. But hey, aim high! I can always lower my sights.
Please don’t be shy about letting me know what you like and don’t like. I love getting your feedback. And I love hearing about what you are reading, or if you have read something that is on my list, what you thought of it.
Have a lovely week and happy reading.
