My Week In Books (w/e 9th January 2022) #booklove #MeAndMyBooks

Hello, and welcome to my weekly wrap up of books that I have read over the last week. The weather certainly has taken a turn for the worst, cold, wet windy and also thundery. It seems that we don’t have a drizzle or a shower instead it chucks it down.

I am certainly looking forward to warmer weather so I can get out in the garden. It’s a good job I have plenty of house plants to keep me occupied. I spent a while removing the dead and dying leaves from my carnivorous plants in the window sill and tidying up some of the many others I have in just a couple of rooms. I still have the ones in the kitchen to go through! Can’t ever have enough plants or books 🙂

Here is what I have read…

I received a copy of You’ll Be the Death of Me by Karen McManus via Amazon Vine and it had purple sprayed edges! This is a Young Adult book and one that had plenty of twists and turns. I did like the connections that were made in the latter third of the book as the story began to come together more. This is one for mystery and crime readers and one I would recommend.


Wow! One Step Too Far by Lisa Gardener was a one-sitting read for me. This is the second in the Frankie Elkin series and it is brilliant. I would suggest reading the first book as it does give you the background for why Frankie looks for missing people. Keep an eye out for the Blog Tour and my full review.


This is the first time I have read anything by this author. Other Parents by Sarah Stovell was a brilliant introduction to this author. This is a dark and quite sinister story set around parents, their opinions and views. It deals with social and class structures, bigoted and narrow-minded views and was a brilliant book. Full review to follow soon.

The Last House on the Street by Diane Chamberlain is another brilliant read and is one that also has differing viewpoints. This one is a duel-timeline story set in North Carolina in the 60s and 2000s. How the past and the present connect is intriguing and when truths emerge it is an eye-opener for sure. This is a story that deals with the Civil Rights Movement and it makes for tough reading at times. Again, my full review will be soon.

Well, there we go another week of quite serious reading and dealing with a wide array of topics and themes.

Wishing you all the very best for the coming week.

Take Care, Stay Safe

All the best, Yvonne xx
