What Books Have Made it Into My Suitcase?

So, by the time this is posted, I will have just boarded my flight from Gatwick to New York. My oldest and dearest friend is getting married in New York and I am excited to be a part of her wedding and to get to go back to New York again. I’ll be there for…

Goodreads – Agatha Christie Part 1

I have always loved watching Poirot and Miss Marple on the television. I knew of Agatha Christie and the books she wrote but I never entertained reading them when I was younger. The BBC’s production of the ‘ABC Murder’s’, offered me such a different view of Poirot that it gave me leave to want to…

August Book Haul

Technically, this book haul was not paid for with money I shouldn’t have spent! It was paid for with ‘celebratory I have read 100 books this year and I’m feeling a bit low’ money. So, technically, I broke no rules! The Diamond of Drury Lane by Julia Golding I am Cat Royal – Orphan, Adventurer,…

August Round Up

I always think of August as a funny month. A boring month. A long month. Nothing happens in August. At work, August is the month that most people have off. It is a long month to stretch a paycheck through. I have been lucky that this August has been quite warm, coming from the UK…

87. Her Mother’s Grave (Josie Quinn 3) by Lisa Regan

I have now put all other books aside so I can finish devouring this series that has seared itself to my heart and buried its plot in my brain. Synopsis (as taken from the Amazon Kindle Store) is as follows: When two young boys discover human bones buried beneath a tree in a trailer park,…

86. Try Not To Breathe by Holly Seddon

This was one of the 12 psychological thrillers I ordered at the beginning of the month. I took this with me on a hen party this weekend and managed to finish it in two days. Again, I didn’t see the ending coming and was surprised when I learnt the secret. Synopsis (as taken from Amazon)…

85. The Girl With No Name (Josie Quinn Book 2) by Lisa Regan

I have unexpectedly fallen in love with this series of books. I knew full well that when I have finished reading them I shall be buying them in paperback. I find there is something special to the characters and the stories that keeps drawing me in. This was impossible to put down and I loved…

Wish List – Children’s Books

I absolutely love Children’s books, and though many people have told me to ‘grow up’, I still sometimes prefer children’s books to adult books. There is just something about a children’s book that makes the reading so special. There is a level of creativity and imagination that is pure and honest. You don’t get that…

Weekend Catch Up

I’ve been super busy this week and actually haven’t had a lot of time to read. I also ended up returning a couple of books I had on my kindle either because they’d been there for 4+ years and I still hadn’t read them, or in the case of one, I knew what was going…
