Welcome to another update of books I have read over the past week. The weather definitely has an autumnal feel to it now, chillier in the late afternoons and of course, it won’t be long before the clocks change… again!
It has been another good week as far as the books go, I seem to be leaning more towards the crime, mystery and thriller genres over the past couple of weeks, so I have tried to mix it up a little bit. I do wonder if it’s because the nights are drawing in and it’s getting darker earlier 🤔
Walk by James Rice – this was an odd read in some ways, a story of two friends walking Offa’s Dyke in Wales. The unprepared friends are chalk and cheese not realising what this trip will really entail. Interesting and quite unexpected. Full review soon.
The Girls Who Disappeared by Claire Douglas – this is an eerie mystery thriller that I adored. It involves the disappearance of three girls and how a reporter is looking into the case for a podcast. Full review to follow soon.
Forget Me Not by Miranda Rijks – this was a brilliant introduction to this author and I will be looking to read some of her previous novels. Set mainly in Switzerland with an interior designer who is returning to the area where her husband disappeared. A wonderful and atmospheric storyline that had me on the edge of my seat. Full review as part of the Blog Tour at the beginning of November.
Cat Lady by Dawn O’Porter – this is a story of a married woman and her cat, the cat is very important to her and is a link to the past. This is a tale that can be funny at times but is about dealing with life and all the problems that come with it. Full review as part of the Blog Tour at the beginning of November.
On the First Day of Christmas by Faith Hogan – I have read several of this author’s books and this one threw me for a moment. It is a parallel storyline about Liv, her life, which way it could go and the choices she makes. A poignant and thought-provoking and I will post my full review soon.
There we have it, while I did try to mix it up most of these stories actually do have a mysterious side to them. Another good week for books and some interesting concepts. I really must get caught up on posting reviews on this site, I have been saying for the past couple of weeks that reviews will follow soon, good job soon doesn’t have a specific time limit to it 🙂
Many thanks for reading my post, a like or share would be amazing 🙂 xx
