My last TWIB post was on August 23rd! So much has happened since then but unfortunately, it’s been quiet book-wise!
∧ Then ∧ Reach for the Stars, Colleen Coleman
When Evelyn Dooley married her high-school sweetheart, James, she thought she was set for life. Now she’s 28, single, and fleeing to Dublin from her small hometown to avoid the gossip surrounding their break-up.
This was not in her five-year plan.
Then a chance encounter with gorgeous musician Danny leads to an unlikely friendship, and soon the pair are running music nights together. Surrounded by new friends and a welcoming community, Evelyn is building a life that she really loves – and sparks are beginning to fly between her and Danny…
But when her savings run out and home beckons, Evelyn has to choose. The safe, comfortable life she left behind, or a new adventure with Danny? Will Evelyn flee back to the familiarity of her ex, or reach for the stars and take a leap into the unknown?
Review to be published tomorrow as part of the blog tour!
≈ Now ≈ The Missing Ones, Patricia Gibney / L’industrie des lettres, OBB / L’empoisonneuse d’Istanbul, Petros Markaris/ And Then There Were None, Agatha Christie / Hiver, short stories
When a woman’s body is discovered in a cathedral and hours later a young man is found hanging from a tree outside his home, Detective Lottie Parker is called in to lead the investigation. Both bodies have the same distinctive tattoo clumsily inscribed on their legs. It’s clear the pair are connected, but how?
The trail leads Lottie to St. Angela’s, a former children’s home, with a dark connection to her own family history. Suddenly the case just got personal.
As Lottie begins to link the current victims to unsolved murders decades old, two teenage boys go missing. She must close in on the killer before they strike again, but in doing so is she putting her own children in terrifying danger?
Lottie is about to come face to face with a twisted soul who has a very warped idea of justice.
Time for me to read the first book before continuing with the series!!! I don’t have much time for personal reads, though 😦
This book related the history of the publishing industry and was written by one of my teachers, OBB! It’s a very cool addition to the class so I can get deeper into the subject, and feel smarter, haha!
A mandatory read I have been putting off forever!
First, there were ten – a curious assortment of strangers summoned as weekend guests to a private island off the coast of Devon. Their host, an eccentric millionaire unknown to all of them, is nowhere to be found. All that the guests have in common is a wicked past they’re unwilling to reveal – and a secret that will seal their fate. For each has been marked for murder. One by one they fall prey. Before the weekend is out, there will be none. And only the dead are above suspicion.
Finally reading a Christie in the original version! No big enthusiasm, though, as it’s for a presentation!
Short stories about winter and what it does… Mandatory stories I’m supposed to review for the “how to review books” class.
∨ Next ∨ The Mistake, K.L. Slater
You think you know the truth about the people you love.
But one discovery can change everything…
Eight-year-old Billy goes missing one day, out flying his kite with his sister Rose. Two days later, he is found dead.
Sixteen years on, Rose still blames herself for Billy’s death. How could she have failed to protect her little brother?
Rose has never fully recovered from the trauma, and one of the few people she trusts is her neighbour Ronnie, who she has known all her life. But one day Ronnie falls ill, and Rose goes next door to help him… and what she finds in his attic room turns her world upside down.
Rose thought she knew the truth about what happened to Billy. She thought she knew her neighbour. Now the only thing she knows is that she is in danger…
I am overly excited to begin this book!!!!
