Watching what I’m reading . . .

I have just started reading Beyond the Olive Grove by Kate Hewitt, a consistently good writer whom I enjoy.

I am also reading Slough House by Mick Herron, my first book by this author. I wasn’t too sure to start with, but this is #7 in the Slough House series, and I haven’t read any of the previous books, something I intend to remedy. Now that I have settled into the read, Herron’s writing style is reminiscent of two of my favourite authors, Adrian McKinty and Ken Bruen.

And I am listening to Wildwood Whispers by Willa Reece

This week I am planning on reading Sisterhood by V.B. Grey

and The Unwelcome Guest by Amanda Robson

I received 9 new ARCs, plus the audio of The Unwelcome Guest by Amanda Robson, so I will be able to do a read/listen for this. The other ARCs I received are: The Summer We Buried by Jody Gehrman

Five Tuesdays in Winter by Lily King

My Daughter’s Mistake by Kate Hewitt

The Perfect Daughter by Kerry Wilkinson

The Woman on the Beach by Julia Roberts

the Couple Upstairs by Shalini Boland

Beyond the Olive Grove by Kate Hewitt, which I am currently reading

and The Selling Point by Marci Bolden

This is #2 in a series, Chsmmont Point, of which I still have the first to read, so I going to try squeeze this in this week. It’s titled The Restarting Point

This week I have spent a lot of time in the Adirondack mountains, both in the present time and during WWII. I have also been in Cincinnati, New York City, and Minnesota in the USA; London, England; and Greece, both in the present time and again during WWII.

Where have you been this week? And did we cross paths at all?

Have a great week everyone. Stay safe and read. β€πŸ“š

  2. I just finished Beyond the Olive Grove. I’ve read Kate Hewitt’s books and they were more of a women’s fiction, I liked them. This is advertised as literary fiction, it was different. Rainy Day Sister was good.

    You now have me wanting to check out Adian McKinty, Ken Bruen and Mick Herron.

  3. You have a few that I also have on shelf, Sandy. I am also reading Amanda Robson’s book this week and am jealous you get the audiobook as well. Let’s see, where was I last week? I spent a lot of time in the UK, in Devon, an English Village with a private school, and some time during the early 1900s. I also took a side trip to Florence which was heavenly. The rest of my time was spent in the US. I was all over the place, in the South, Miami Florida, in Michigan along Lake Michigan, the Northeast coast, Washington DC, Salem and more. A very busy week. Enjoy all your upcoming reads, Sandy. πŸ“šπŸ˜€πŸ§‘βœˆ
