Hello and welcome to my weekly post about books I have read, I say weekly but last week I didn’t do one because I had other posts scheduled. I am a Book Blogger who prefers to post once a day, unless I get my scheduling wrong! I am sure my good friend Teagan will be pleased to see this post as she was asking where her weekly fix of books was! 😍
So what did I read…
I am a big fan of Rich Amooi, and his latest book Just Another Silly Love Song is a fabulous rom-com read. It pits two rivals against each other as they have to join forces. Their on air banter and arguments are brilliant and had me laughing at heir antics. Rich is definitely the King of Rom Coms and I loved this one a lot.
The Kompromat Kill by Michael Jenkins is the second book in this series and even though i have not read the first it works well as a stand alone. This is a good espionage thriller that I really enjoyed. Ideal for readers who like complex plots that have you racing around the world trying to discover the secrets and lies. Keep an eye out for my review as part of the Blog Tour.
I am a big fan of Conn Iggulden and his latest book The Gates of Athens is a brilliant read. This author does historical fiction in such an accessible way and this book takes the reader back to Ancient Greece with the battles between the Persian army and the Athenians, it also includes the Spartan stand. A brilliant read and one that had me hooked.
Now for something a little different I requested this from NetGalley and I have to say I had great fun drawing dinosaurs, helicopters and various other things. Learn To Draw (Almost Anything in 6 Easy Steps) by Rich Davis is a great book for kids (and big kids) to try their hand at easy to follow drawings. A brilliant book that I really liked.
I thoroughly enjoyed As Greek As It Gets by Sue Roberts and it was a really nice escapism read. I thought I knew how this one was going to end and was quite surprised, in a nice way obviously. It is a story of nerves, doubts and feeling a little left out. A lovely story that I will share my review for as part of the Blog Tour.
Yes it is mystery book time… This book is the next in the DS Malice Series and it is a brilliant read. As there are no details about this book on Goodreads or Amazon I am not going to say too much about it apart from it is a brilliant read. Keep an eye out for my review when it’s published.
Billy Lynn’s Long Halftime Walk by Ben Fountain was a book that I was really interested in. While I did enjoy the story of Billy I did find that it dragged a little in places. In my opinion, it is a book I see working better as a film.
What I’ve been listening to…
I cannot think of a better person to narrate Rudyard Kipling’s – Selected Just So Stories than Johnny Morris. I loved watching Animal Magic as a child and listening to Johnny and hearing his voice reading these stories brought back good memories. This audio is not the full version of the Just So Stories, but is a very good selection and i have to say I really, really enjoyed it.
I listened to Sherlock Holmes – The Sign of Four narrated by the fabulous Stephen Fry. This is the second book in the Definitive Audio Collection and it is one I really enjoyed. I actually found this one easier to listen to and more enjoyable than when I had first read it.
Well, that’s all the books I have read and listened to over the past two weeks, and it leaves me to say that I wish you all a good week ahead.
