Welcome to another weekly update of books I have read. This week has seen me reading some books from NetGalley and picking some from my own TBR shelf.
Love Will Tear Us Apart by C. K. McDonnell – this is the 3rd book in the Stranger Times series and I adored this as much as the previous ones. Stranger Times is a niche newspaper that reports on strange occurances and events. Its editor Banecroft is a force to be reckoned withand a new assistant editor has his number. Hannah, the othe ex assistant editor has her own story as do other members of the staff. This is a fabulous fantasy and very humerous book. Full review next minth near the publication day.
The Silence Project by Carole Hailey – this is a book that does have mixed reviews but I loved it. Emilia is the narrator for this book and it tells of how her mum stopped speaking and lived at the bottom of hte garden. What started as one womans way of trying to find peace and listen to the world around her changed into a world wide following. Told in the past and then in the future this was a gripping book and I loved how the author dealt with the issues that arose. This is a dystopian that hdoes have an alarming believable adge to it. Full review next month near publication day.
The Wilderness Retreat by Jennifer Moore – this is a very good read and the idea of having a week away in an isolted retreat to relax and come to terms with life and its problems sounds great. Well it did until I read this one and discover that this is not as serene and idyllic as it sounds. THis is a mystery thriller that had me trying to work out the full extent of the depth that the author has gone with her characters. I did think at times it was a little repetative, but still a very good book. Full review next month.
The Woman in Black by Susan Hill – I have had this book for ages on my kindle and I am aware of their being a film, but have not watched it. I do like a good classic style gothic mystery and this one is fabulous. I really enjoyed the eerie atmosphere ofthe book and the odd looks from people along with conversations that suddenly stop when you walk into a room. The auhtor has created a story full of suspense and I adored it. Full review will follow over the next week or so.
Another 4 week book for me again this week 🙂
Happy Reading and have a great week ahead
All the best
