My Week In Books (w/e 27th oct) #MeAndMyBooks #Bookupdates

Welcome to yet another weekly bookish wrap-up. The clocks are due to change and it doesn’t seem that long since they sprang forward! There is an image that comes around at these times of year and every time I see it I nod knowingly…


So let me share the books I have read this week…

I hadn’t started this one in last weeks post so I could not make any comment on how I was finding it, but… I have now finished it ๐Ÿ™‚

Until We Meet Again by Rosemary Goodacre

This is the story of Amy and Edmond and is told during WW1 and is a beautiful story. A story that deals with the challenges of love during the war and also the opinions of the families. It dealt with hardships, uncertainties, duty and hope and is a fabulous read. Keep an eye for for the Blog Tour.


Still on the historical fiction and books set during the war, I then read…

The Photographer of the Lost by Caroline Scott

This is a hauntingly atmospheric and beautifully told story. It is set after WW1 and is a story about finding out what happened to those who are lost. Edie is desperate to find out where her missing husband is, whether he is alive or has been killed. Harry returns to France as a photographer and captures images for the families back home, a chance for them to see the final resting place of their loved ones. It is a heartbreaking read that is so poignant and yet holds glimmers of hope. You need a tissue or 6 for this one. Again, this is for a Blog Tour so keep your eye out for the reviews.


As much as I love reading hist/fic I felt like I needed to read something that was less emotional a lighter read. So I chose…

Hemlock Jones and the Underground Orphans by Justin Carroll (book not on Goodreads yet, so no image)

This is the 2nd book in the Hemlock Jones series and I loved the 1st one so much. Hemlock Jones is a demystifier and is definitely not to be confused with the “Consulting Detective” who resides in Baker Street! This is a fabulous book aimed at young readers 8 years and above. It was so good to get back to Hemlock and her sidekick Edward and their antics. Another Blog Tour read so look out for the reviews for this one as well.


My next read will take me back into hist/fic again…

The Rector’s Daughter by Jean Fullerton

I am looking forward to this one and yes it is another Blog Tour book, I could not resist this one as I have read this author before and really must get more of her books.


Well that is it for me for another week. Thanks for reading and wishing you all the best ๐Ÿ™‚
