My Week In Books (w/e 22nd August 2021) #booklove #bookupdates #MeAndMyBooks

Here we are yet again, another week and another weekly update of books I have read. I know I mention quite often that the weeks are flying by… but seriously… it won’t be long before we are changing the clocks once again! The evenings are getting darker earlier and it is getting cooler.

When I had a look back over the weeks books I had quite a shock as to how many I had read.

My Wife Jodie by V. A. Rudys is a very twisted psychological thriller. The full review is on my blog tomorrow so I am not going into this one too much now, but i will say it was very good!

As the cover for A Winter Baby for Gin Barrell Lane by Lindsey Hutchinson isn’t up on Goodreads yet, I have stuck with this generic image. This is a historical fiction and family saga story and it was an absolute pleasure to read. Set in Birmingham in the 1860’s, Dolly is running her own gin palace and possibly looking to expand. This is a story that I adored and is full of local and community support for a female business owner. Keep an eye out for my full review later this week as part of the blog tour.

I adored this YA story, The Mapmakers Daughter by Caroline Dunford is a fantasy read and one that I got on really well with. It is more light fantasy and I did enjoy the world the author built up. I did feel it finished a bit quick, or maybe I just didn’t want it to end! Full review later this week as part of the Blog Tour.

The Ticklemore Tavern by Liz Davies is brilliant story. It involves gin, it is a rom-com and it does have a wonderful storyline to it. This doesn’t have its full cover on Goodreads yet, so again I am going with a generic one. This story has the the mother from hell, a hunky landlord and is a cracking read. Off the top of my head this book is due for a one blitz so keep you eye out next week for many reviews from Bloggers.

I have been listening to A History of Britain Vol II by Simon Schama. I do have the hardback set of these books and I have read them and when I saw the audio on my local library site I decided to give it a go. I did think this was very good, but I have to say I prefer the actual books rather than the audio.

I am nearly getting towards the end of the #20booksofsummer reading challenge. I have 2 and a bit books to go so I should complete it. I have changed my list considerably as I have taken on books rather than sticking to my list, but you now what it’s like lol!

All wrapped up for another week,

Wishing you all a great week ahead
