My Week in Books (w/e 21st June) #booknews #bookupdates #MeAndMyBooks

Hello and welcome to my weekly wrap up of books I have read. This week has been quieter, one of those “not much really happened” weeks. So let’s get straight into what I have read…

When I received and email from Alison at Elliott & Thompson entitled “A Funny Nature book” I was intrigued and after reading the synopsis I knew this would be for me. Into the Tangled Bank by Lev Parikian is a delightful and humorous account of Lev’s observations on how people interact with nature, or how nature interacts with us. I really enjoyed the author’s style, witty and humorous pointing out the obvious. Keep an eye out for my review as part of the Blog Tour.


Next I read All We LEft Behind by Danielle R. Graham, this is set in Vancover in 1941 and is the story of a couple who have been friends since childhood and then realise as they get older that they have a deeper connection. Hayden is Canadian, Chidori is Japanese Canadian and when Japan bombs Pearl Harbour Chidori and her family are moved by the government. This is a beautiful story and one I really enjoyed and I think readers of historical fiction and romance would really enjoy it as well.


“Deadly Secrets by Ann Girdharry”

As there is no cover or synopsis on Goodreads or Amazon at the time I write this I have no cover to share, you will see it when the Blog Tour starts. Deadly Secrets by Ann Girdharry is a suspense filled thriller and it was a fabulous read. The death of an elderly man in hospital followed by the death of the nurse who cared for him is just the start for this brilliant story. It is a story that has far reaching implications for some and for other it brings the past well and truly back to the present. This was an addictive read and one for suspense, crime and thriller readers.


I have also finished listening to the Audible version of Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets narrated by Stephen Fry. How is it that I have not really got into reading this series but instead prefer the audio-book? I think a lot of it has to do with the narration. This is the second in the series and I think most people of aware of this series. I enjoyed this and would recommend it.


Well that is it for me this week. As there was a break in the weather I was able to get caught up with weeding rather than reading. As I sit here, it’s Sunday morning and the roast is in the oven, I think how ironic it is that we are officially in Summertime and I am wearing a jumper, it looks more like autumn…

Have a wonderful week ahead and happy reading
