My Week In Books (w/e 11th Aug) #BookNews #MeAndMyBooks

Welcome once again to another round up of bookish news. I do want to say a HUGE thanks you to those who shared my midweek Blog Tour review, it was greatly appreciated. Me and He have both been off work for the week so social media definitely took a back seat. I will sort out a separate post with photo’s of the places we went a bit later in the week ๐Ÿ™‚

So let’s have a look at the books I read shall we?..


In last weeks post I was still reading The July Girls, well I finished it and WOW! In case you have not seen it this is what it is all about…

The July Girls by Phoebe Locke

Every year, on the same night in July, a woman is taken from the streets of London; snatched by a killer who moves through the city like a ghost. 

Addie has a secret. On the morning of her tenth birthday, four bombs were detonated across the capital. That night her dad came home covered in blood. She thought he was hurt in the attacks – but then her sister Jessie found a missing woman’s purse hidden in his room. Jessie says they mustn’t tell. She says there’s nothing to worry about. But when she takes a job looking after the woman’s baby daughter, Addie starts to realise that her big sister doesn’t always tell her the whole story. And that the secrets they’re keeping may start costing lives…


Next up…

A Fever In The Blood by Oscar de Muriel

This is the 2nd in the series and is feels different to the first. It is more mysterious as the duo of McGray and Frey are involved in a chase that has personal connection for McGray as they end up in Lancashire at the notorious Pendle Hil! A mystery that oozes atmosphere and is set in 1889. This is number 11 of my #20Books of Summer reading list, and I really must get my arse into gear and get the reviews wrote up!


Next is a book that is not on my summer reading list, but I could not resist it…

My Lemon Grove Summer by Jo Thomas

Last year I read my first Jo Thomas book and that was Sunset over the Cherry Orchard and I absolutely adored it. This was why when I saw My Lemon Grove Summer I had to buy it and read it. Sicilian sun, stunning setting, lemon groves… aaah take me there! A fabulous summer read.


I was very fortunate to win a Signed copy of my next book as well as an Audio CD and it has sat on my shelf for far too long…

The Good Doctor of Warsaw by Elisabeth Gifford

What can I say about this book! It is a beautifully written and absolutely heartbreaking read. I am still trying to find the words to describe what a wonderful read this was. If you have not read it yet, then please consider getting a copy!


I am currently reading a book that was sent out via the publisher for me to review…

Raven’s Wind by Steve Hutton

I am only a few chapters in and I’m really enjoying this… here is what the synopsis says…

Raven’s Wand sees two opposing secret societies waging a war of belief behind the skin of Victorian Britain. One uses magic to heal the world, while the other twists it into abominations and war machines. It is 1886 and a battle is about to be waged; Knight Superior Krast of the Illuminata is prepared for victory but fate is not wholly on his side. Many years later, the survivors of that dreadful day will meet again. Kolfinnia has a great task set before her and, with the aid of the Raven wand, she dares more than she ever dreamed possible. A tale of two clashing worlds. The world of Kolfinnia and those who wish to eliminate her and all of her kind. Raven’s Wand is Book 1 in The Dark Raven Chronicles. Book 2: Flowers of Fate will be published Autumn 2016.


Well that is me done for this week, hope you all had a great reading week.

All the best, Yvonne xx
