My Week In Books (w/e 29th sept) #MeAndMyBooks #BookUpdates #BookNews

Welcome once again to another weekly bookish update. As autumn has definitely started to make its presence felt I have been play around on Canva and also Giphy to create some new headers and titles on my page, they have a more autumnal feel. These are brilliant free sites where you can find loads of stuff for your blog, there are somethings on Canva that you have to pay for and you do have the option to upgrade, but I have never needed to pay for anything that I have wanted. Go check the sites out.

I have decided to join in with a new autumn/winter Reading Challenge and I hope to have my list ready to share later today.

I also have a post ready for Wednesday for another #booktag, this one is the Finally Fall and features books that evoke autumnal thoughts for the readers.

So let me share with you all the books I have read over the past week…

First up is…

99% Mine by Sally Thorne

This is a good read and I did enjoy it but I just didn’t feel anything for the characters. It is a story of sibling rivalry of sorts and how adult twins are fighting over their best friend. It is a good good read as I said, the story was engaging and had some really nice moments and I did read it through quite quickly, but for me it was just missing something.


Then I read…

Cage by Lilja Sigurdardottir

This is the 3rd and final book in this trilogy. It has been a great series and Cage has a very different feel to it. This threw me a little bit at the beginning and after reading reading a few pages I then decided to read the synopsis, it always helps! Then things started to fit a little better. So, this story has corporate crime at its core. I did think the previous two books were more engaging though Cage is still a very good read. My review will be as part of the blog tour.


The I read…

The Girl Downstairs by Stacey Lee

Oh I liked this one a lot. A historical fiction with a nice subtle element of romance that discusses issues of the day in Atlanta, America in the 1890’s. The author delves into racial inequality, the Suffragists movement in the US, social etiquette and also the different class and social aspects of the time. This is a cracking book that threw up some surprising twists and I thoroughly enjoyed it.


Then I chose…

A Grave For Two by Anna Holt

This is my first time reading this author and I was really enjoying this story but did feel that the end started to drag a little. A story that is focused around sports, doping, murder, blackmail and elitism. I enjoyed reading about the characters and Selma was one that really caught my attention, there is a lot more to her than meets the eye and I am going to have a look and see if there are previous books that mention this character. Keep an eye out for my review in the next couple of weeks.


Next up was…

The Holiday by T.M. Logan

A nice French resort see’s Kate and her 3 best friends on holiday, It is a slower read that gradually wrapped me up in its intrigue. I am still processing this book as I have literally just finished reading it. My review will follow in a couple of weeks.


My next read will probably be…

All Summer With You by Beth Good

Yes summer is over and I am thinking about reading a summer book… well why not! Here’s the synopsis…

There’s no place like home…

Nursing a broken heart, Jennifer Bolitho retreats to Pixie Cottage. Her new landlord – a former soldier turned movie heartthrob – has grounds so large, she’s sure the little house nestled in the woods will bring her solitude.

Alex Delgardo also has reasons to hide away. Seeking refuge after a tragic incident turned his world upside down, he knows that the most important thing now is to care for his ailing family.

But when Jennifer enters their lives, that changes. Because, as they both learn, you can’t heal others until you learn to heal yourself…


Other Stuff…

You may have noticed that I have mentioned a couple of reviews will be following in a couple of weeks time. This is because I have time off work and I am off to my parents for a few days. I am not sure if I will drive up on Wednesday or Thursday as yet, it depends on the weather as I would rather have nicer weather for the 6-7 hour drive. While I am away I will not be on Social Media very much, I do have a review going out for a Blog Tour while I’m away and, any shares would be hugely appreciated.

While there me and Mum are going to have a girly day out and are looking forward to going to the Book Blogger Meet up in Stoke. I am so excited to finally meet fellow Bloggers for the very first time and you will get a hug ๐Ÿ™‚ When I mentioned I was going, Mum asked me if she could come along as well, she said she would be quiet and not embarrass me!!!! What the hell mother! You most definitely can come and you will not sit quiet at all, you will join in and enjoy yourself! ๐Ÿ™‚


A photo to finish up with. I managed to get to the flowers in my garden before the downpour and cut some flowers before the petals got damaged.

Well that is me done for another week. Can you believe that it is October tomorrow! I wont be around to write a post next Monday so it will be a double update the week after ๐Ÿ™‚

Before I go, here is a quote that I found…

Only one thing left to say, have a great week everyone and Happy Reading ๐Ÿ™‚
