My Week In Books (w/e 5th March 2023) #booklove #bookupdates #MeAndMyBooks

Another week of fabulous books and again I am shocked that I have managed to read five books! One was a short one, but still Five!!!!!

I have been out in the garden and decided it was a good idea to empty my pre-formed pond and sink it a bit further. It took a lot more effort than I thought but it is looking better than it was. The earth around it had gradually sunk leaving the pond higher and not looking great. I will take a photo after I have finished setting it up, at the moment it is in place and settling.

So here is what I have read over the past week…

The Ugly Truth by L.C. North – wow what an amazing book this was but also one that was quite brutal at times. It is based on how people treat a young woman on social media after a photo is taken of her and she becomes a celebrity. This is a look at the dark side of celebrity and showbiz culture, being in the spotlight constantly and having every detail of your private life scrutinized by people who don’t actually know you. Very addictive book with some very surprising twists. Full review to follow.

End of Story by Louise Swanson (aka Louise Beech) – when I saw the synopsis for this book I thought, finally a book from this author that may not make me cry… how wrong I was! I should know better, and if you have read any of her books you will know what I mean. This is set in a dystopian setting where reading fiction has been banned. A world with no fiction is just unimaginable, but the author did imagine it and then wove it into this intriguing and heartbreaking story. Full review to follow.

Love on the Run by Suzie Tullett – it has been a while since I have read any of this author’s books and it was great to get the chance to read her latest one. Mum of two, Hannah, has a month free from her twins as they go on their holidays with their dad. Somehow she agrees to take part in a charity run with her two incorrigible friends. A fabulous fun and amusing rom-com. Full review at the end of the week as part of the Blog Tour.

After the Burning by N.S. Ford – I seem to be reading more dystopian just lately so when the author got in touch to read her collection of dystopian short stories I was definitely going to agree. These are wonderful stories and they do have a real believability to them. Full review nearer publication day in a couple of weeks.

Marchwood Vampires #1 by Shalini Boland – this book does have a title, but it has recently been changed so I am just including the series title instead. An official announcement about this will be done on NetGalley this week. So I am not going to share the cover or obviously the title ๐Ÿ™‚

This is a YA story and it is one that I really enjoyed. It has a duel timeline describing how the Vampires at Marchwood came to be there. The present-day storyline is when a young woman and her brother who are in foster care suddenly discover they are to inherit Marchwood and a huge amount of wealth as well. They knew nothing about the vampires! Full review to follow.

There we have it, five fabulous books.

I wish you all a wonderful week ahead

All the best
