First of all, thank you to Raven Books for sending me this beautiful hardback copy of The Flower Girls to read and review. It was so wonderfully packaged when I received it, I almost didn’t want to open it. But I was so glad I did, this was a FANTASTIC read!
New for 2019 – a monthly wrap up – we LOVE reading other people’s round ups of their month of reading, so we thought we’d share what we’ve loved and not-so-loved this month in our bookish world.Read More »
Every so often we like to do a book swap. Kate likes YA mainly and Becca enjoys thrillers. It’s good to try something different, so we came up with a book swap where we each give each other one of our reads and see what the other thinks.
This month we did ‘The Single Girl’s To Do List’ by Lindsey Kelk (being Kate’s chic lit choice) and ‘Pretty Girls’ by Karin Slaughter (being Becca’s thriller choice). Here’s what we each thought of our respective swaps!Read More »
Gone by Midnight, is the third in the Crimson Lake series by Candice Fox.
Thank you to Century publishing for sending me a shiny hardback copy of this to review. And also NetGalley for letting me have a kindle version, all in the same week!
This was fantastic. I have recently read the second in the series, and I thoroughly enjoyed that. So when I knew this was coming, I was very excited.Read More »
One of my all time favourite books, is Above Suspicion by Lynda La Plante. I read it such a long time ago and I absolutely loved it as soon as I started it. The Red Dahlia is the second book in the Anna Travis series, and I’ve wanted to read it for ages.
This year, Kate and I tried out the Icelandic tradition of Jokabokaflod – where we exchanged books on Christmas eve to be read throughout the day/night. Now, while I didn’t get much reading done on Christmas eve, I have made up for it since and this was just such a fantastic read. I’m super thankful that I got it from Kate, so thank you 🙂Read More »
The Woman in the Window by AJ Finn. This was sent to me by Harper Collins Publishing in early December. I’m a little late to the party as the hardback hit the shelves back at the beginning of the year. However, I’m glad I finally got round to this, as although I had some quibbles with it, by the end it was a good read, and is out in paperback on 27th December 2018.
What is it about? Well, Anna lives in her big, expensive house all by herself, since her husband and daughter left her. She doesn’t leave the house, as she is agoraphobic, and going along the lines of becoming an alcoholic too. Anna spends her days looking out of her windows at her neighbours, spying on what they are doing, and generally living her life through them. One day, Anna sees something criminal happen in one of her neighbours houses and that’s when her life becomes embroiled in this slow-burn, suck-you-in-by-the-end thriller!Read More »
