My Week In Books (w/e 21st March) #bookupdates #booklove #MeAndMyBooks

How is it we are nearly at the end of March! Not that I am complaining of course, but wow this month is going fast. Spring is definitely springing as far as the garden is going. Shoots, coming up, leaf and flower buds starting to form and seeds starting to go in. A much nicer part of the year for me.

Last weeks book post was a very random one with a definite mix, more so than normal! This week, though not quite so random, it still does have a good variation.

I have adored this trilogy and I am gutted to have finished it with The Fall of Koli by M.R. Carey as the final book in The Rampart Trilogy. This trilogy has been amazing and it has a great dystopian feel that has been blended so well with a fantasy element. I do think this is a trilogy that would work well for many readers. Keep an eye out for the Blog Tour and my full review.

As soon as I see Rich Amooi‘s name come up on Rachel’s Random Resources, I am there and I know there are several other Book Bloggers that immediately ask for a spot on the Blog Tour. Uncork My Love has the usual cheekiness and cheesiness but it also felt as it was the secondary characters that had such a hilarious part to play. I do love this authors books and this is another fabulous light-hearted read.

It has been quite a long time since I have read any books by Lynda La Plante and her latest novel, The Judas Horse, reminds me just how much I used to love her crime stories. This is the second book in the DC Jack Warr series and it works really well as a standalone, yes you guessed it, I haven’t read the first one! Jack has been asked to help out on another areas case and I have to say the author has done a brilliant job of how she deals with the characters and also the hierarchy. Such an addictive read, it makes me wan to go back and read all of her other books again, if I had the time and a smaller TBR pile I would!

After starting the month with the third book in the Harry McCoy series I had the chance to read The April Dead by Alan Parks. This is the fourth book and wow, it is another amazing read. It is very dark and there are some unpleasant themes that the author has used. He has got the balance right in his descriptions, enough to relay the meaning. This is one that crime thriller readers who prefer darker, gritty and noir based police procedural books. A cosy mystery it isn’t.

I have not read anything by this author before and The Mersey Mistress by Sheila Riley is such a great introduction to her writing. So much so that I found this to be a one sitting read. Such a emotional and wonderful historical fiction that I could not put it down. I am so glad Rachel at Rachel’s Random Resources gave me a nudge about this one as I had missed the Blog Tour sign up for it. Set in Liverpool in 1910 the author introduces two women and tells their tale. Fabulous book.

There you have it for another week. Fantasy/ Dystopian, crime, historic, romance and rom-com!

All that leaves to to do is wish you all a wonderful week ahead,
