Welcome to another weekly round-up of books I have read. Just three books this week, but all three were very different and also brilliantly entertaining in their own way.
When in autumn it is nice to be reminded of the summer and The Seaside Cocktail Campervan by Caroline Roberts definitely made me think of the warmer days of only a few weeks ago. A new business see’s two strangers connecting over pizzas and cocktails. The author really did a wonderful job with her descriptions of food and drinks as well as creating a lovely and engaging story. She also added some of the recipes at the end of the books, a welcome addition. One for fans of rom-com, summer reads and one I would definitely recommend.
I requested this one via NetGalley and I almost didn’t read this one. The Silence of Scheherazade by Defne Suman was a book that took me a while to get into, but there was something about it that made me want to keep reading this slower and at times slightly confusing book. This is the story of four different families and each with a timeslip timeline. While the storyline may have confused me at times, I am so glad I persevered with it as the writing style was absolutely mesmerising. This is a historical fiction story that does has a strong lean towards the literary fiction genre. Given my initial apprehension, I am glad I read this and it is one I would also definitely recommend.
The Bone Shard Emperor by Andrea Stewart is the second book in the Drowning Empire series and I have been eagerly awaiting this one. This is a series that should be read in order as this second book expands on the previous book as well as moves forward with the story of Lin, Jovis and the other characters. This is a fantasy series and I adore everything about it. It was a little more detailed but this helped to build the characters, the tension and mistrust. Keep an eye out for my full review next week as part of the blog tour.
There we have it,
Another week over and more to add to my reading tally.
Take Care and Stay Safe,
