My Week In Books (w/e 4th December 2022) #bookupdates #booklove #MeAndMyBooks

Welcome to my weekly round-up of books I have read. I am a day late with this, basically, I forgot what day it was and I changed one of my nightshifts so it threw everything out. Change is good, but not when you work nights and struggle to remember the day. I usually work on a Monday night, and it is still Monday in my head until I have been home and had a couple of hours of sleep, it then becomes Tuesday! It all makes sense to me, if you work nights you’ll get exactly what I mean 🙂

Here is what I have read and listened to over the past week…

60713417. sx318

Pandora’s Jar: Women in the Greek myths by Natalie Haynes – this was an interesting book to listen to and the author explores how women had been perceived over the years in the myths, legends, films, TV and literature. The author did use modern equivalents from pop, film and drama to show this. I did enjoy it and found it to be a very interesting one to listen to. Ideal if you like discussion-style audio with well-reasoned examples and the full review will follow soon.


The Angel’s Mark by S. W. Perry – this was one of the titles I had hoped to read in the summer but it got bumped down my TBR. I am kicking myself because it is a brilliant historical fiction, murder, mystery and crime story. It is the first book in the series and I cannot wait to read more. Full review to follow.

A Gift Called Hope by Eva Jordan – This is a lovely story and it deals with the excitement of Christmas with a young child and as a parent dealing with loss. Gorgeous story and a full review to follow.

52680952. sx318 sy475

The Nazi’s Son by Andrew Turpin – if you are a fan of espionage, conspiracy and thriller reads then you won’t go far wrong with this series. This is the 5th book and it mixes Stasi, KGB, CIA, and MI5/6 with links going back to the 1986 nightclub bombing in Germany. Brilliant story and series, full review to follow.

There we have it for another week,

Have a great week ahead

  1. A Gift Called Hope looks like the perfect holiday read! Thank you for sharing! I am always looking for recommendations for my book club and this looks like an excellent book club choice. We recently read “The Placeholder” by Lynda Wolters ( At first, I was a little concerned it was going to be your stereotypical “second-chance” love story following a woman, Sera, in her 40s dating after losing everything in a divorce. BUT… I was so wrong. The book focuses on friendship, and hope, and living in the moment because you never know how quickly it all can be taken away. I think the author did a wonderful job at making the characters relatable and I was rooting for Sera from start to finish. I don’t want to give any spoilers, but I can assure you that you will laugh, cry, and really cherish this book. If you check it out, I would love to hear your thoughts!
