A double update this week for the books that I have read. I don’t seem to have had as much time for reading as I normally do. I have also noticed my concentration levels have taken a bit of a dip, I think this is due to feeling more tired recently. But, I am still reading so I am not too bothered 🙂
w/e Sunday 5th September…
Three Words For Goodbye by Hazel Gaynor & Heather Webb was a stunning read. You can read my full review HERE.
I read Lethal Ties by Helen Christmas for the Blog Tour, a addictive and powerful story. Full review HERE.
Never Saw Me Coming by Vera Kurian was a mystery with a great psychological edge to it. A great read and my full review is HERE.
w/e Sunday 12th September…
Armchair Explorer by Lonely Planet
his is a fabulous book that will appeal to lovers of music, film and literature. This book is broken down into continents, and then each country is listed alphabetically.
This book is brilliant for me. As a book reader, I often look for books from around the world. Listing 5 bokos from the classics to more modern titles gives me a good introduction to the literature of each country. Along with this I can then explore further and look for films and also check out the playlists for music.
There is also a photo for each country, not necessarily a photo of a capital city or a scenic view either. There are a few countries that do have an “In-Depth” page, where there is a little more information about a person or group that has been influential in some way.
This is a great book for either flicking through or sitting and reading through. It is a very well laid out reference book that is also very interesting.
I do think this is a really good book and the hardback version is really nice. It is a book I would definitely recommend.
The Lion and The Unicorn by Tom Ward is a story set in the 2054 in England. A dystopian mystery that I really enjoyed. This is a mix of political big brother style themes, undercover, police procedural and murder. Full review tomorrow as part of the Blog Tour.
I have only just finished reading the Seamstress of Warsaw by Rebecca Mascull and it is a fabulous story. This is the story of two people who seemingly have nothing in common, WWII has revealed a connection. This connection will lead a young man on a dangerous journey. The other other person is trying to survive amidst the the persecution. This is a strong story that I absolutely adored. Full review next week as part of the blog tour .
There we are, all done.
Have a wonderful week ahead,
All the best
