Hello to another weekly look at what I have been reading. I am unsure if I will be able to share anything today as we are due to have our electricity off for the morning while they do whatever needs doing. I do rely on wifi for a better phone signal as well as to keep it charged.
Another month is almost over and the wind is bitingly cold. The sun may be out on an odd day, but it isn’t warm yet. I have been out to see what is growing as I could see some of the daffs were starting to open. Many of the shrubs are starting to bud up and leaves are opening on some other plants, I didn’t hang around long enough to take that many photos.
The Writing Retreat by Julia Bartz – when an aspiring writer gets to join a famous author at her home with some other women it sounds great. A chance to get feedback and advice from an established author is almost too good to be true. It is definitely too good to be true as the story takes very sinister routes. Keep an eye out for the upcoming Blog Tour for my full review.
A Psychic Subterfuge by JP Alters – well this one was all I hoped it would be and more. When Mary arrives at a state-of-the-art facility to help her with her non-treatable schizophrenia things are starting to look better for her. A chance to live a normal life. The other residents at the facility are aware of something and the conspiracies and theories about what is really happening to make for a thrilling and suspense-filled read. This is another book for an upcoming Blog Tour so keep your eye out for that one.
Cold People by Tom Rob Smith – this was another brilliant book to read and I devoured it. Humankind has been reduced to living in Antarctica, not everyone made it, in fact, only a small amount of people were able to reach land within the 30-day time limit they were given. The story is one of survival and doing what needs to be done to adapt to a new way of living in extreme conditions. The full review will follow soon.
The Foxglove King by Hannah Whitten – this is another fabulous book and is a fantasy that had me hooked. This is a book that I found really difficult to review, there are so many things that I want to say about it but it would mean leaving spoilers. A young woman has dark powers, she is brought into the citadel to spy. But who is the one she should be spying on and who is telling the truth, is anyone telling the truth, is she telling the whole truth! A full review will follow in a week or so.
I am not quite sure how I managed 4 books this week, I thought I had read my usual 3 until I checked on Goodreads. All are brilliant books, thrillers, paranormal, fantasy and a locked room style. Quite a mixed bag of darkness 🙂
Have a fabulous week
All the best
Many thanks for reading my post, a like or share would be amazing 🙂 xx

Looks like a fab bookish week Yvonne. I’m glad you enjoyed Cold People as I gave up on the audiobook as the narrator really put me off. Perhaps I should try it in a different format? xx

Oh that’s a shame, I adored the book. I always listen to a sample before I get a book, not so easy if you get them from netgalley though xx
