My Week IN Books (w/e 19th December 2021) #booklove #bookupdates #MeAndMyBooks

Welcome to another weekly wrap-up of books I have read over the past week. I have also finalised my Top Reads of 2021 and wow has it been a tough one. As much as I love sharing the books I love I also find it extremely difficult to whittle down the 200+ books that I have read, down to a handful that I have really loved and want to highlight. Keep an eye out on Wednesday for my list 🙂

What I’ve read this past week…

Even though I am not a huge fan of overly political books I was intrigued by The Whistle Blower by Robert Peston. This is a fictional debut for this author and it is set in the corridors of Parliament, has many dodgy characters, shady dealing and quite a few mysterious happenings going on. I really enjoyed this book and it was one that I think fans of political thrillers would also enjoy.

The Book of Sand by Theo Clare is penned by the late Mo Hayder. This is a fabulous story that is quite devious in the respect that the two seemingly disconnected storylines don’t actually come together until after the halfway point. Part dystopian, fantasy, mixed with present-day contemporary, loads of mystery and gradually one that darkens the further you get. It is a brilliant book that had me hooked. Ideal for those who are looking for a different, but it is dividing opinion!

Publication Date – 6th January 2022

Whether this author writes under Jules Wake or Julie Caplin, I know I am in for a treat. The Cosy Cottage in Ireland by Julie Caplin is the 8th in the Romantic Escapes series and was a lovely, gorgeous and mouthwatering delight. Each of the books in this series can be read as stand-alone. This is one for the romantics, foodies, those that like heartwarming tales and setting descriptions. Gorgeously told and definitely recommended.

For something different, I decided to read Put A Wet Paper Towel On It by Lee Parkinson and Adam Parkinson. Brothers who work in Education in their own right and have brought together their experiences of teaching. Hilarious at times and also quite an eye-opener at others as they tell their own story of joining the system and why. This is a fab non-fiction book and it was one I really enjoyed.

Well, that’s me done for another week.

Happy Reading, Stay Safe
