I am very excited by the books that arrived in the mail this week.
So many great reads – it is almost better than Christmas! I have started reading Melina Marchetta’s – Tell The Truth Shame The Devil– a great mystery/thriller ( maybe I might finish that tonight), I have flicked through Vivienne Westwood’s Get a Life and I must say I am really keen to start this – this hardback is beautifully presented – love the detailing on the inside back and front covers and the handwritten message from Vivienne and all the wonderful images sprinkled liberally throughout the book. This would make a fantastic Christmas gift for someone special (or for yourself, your pretty special too).
I loved Saul Black’s The Killing Lessons so really looking forward to Lovemurder.
The Rivers of London sounds interesting… “my story really started when I tried to take a witness statement froma man who was already dead…” This grabbed my attention! And I see Lisa Unger took my advice and created a novel from one of the novellas she wrote a while back 🙂 Ink and Bone – another I cant wait to start reading. And last but not least – a local publisher – Serenity Press brings us Writing the Dream; twenty four inspiring stories from many writers you may know or know of – Louise Allan, Sara Foster, Jenn J Mcleod, Monique Mulligan, Sandi Wallace… I cant wait to read your stories!
Oh, that is a great-looking group of books, Carol! I really do hope you’ll enjoy them. I’ve read some Lisa Unger before, and I’ll be especially interested in what you think of that one. And The Rivers of London sounds fantastic. Lucky you!
It sure is Margot – can’t wait to dip into these. Reviews will be posted.. in a few weeks (optimistic aren’t I?) 🙂
Great haul there Carol. I have Ink and Bone by Lisa Unger too and I’m looking forward to reading it.
So many good books Tracey, I need a holiday to catch up:)
Looks like a lot of good books there! I have Ink and Bone on my kindle, now just need to read it:) The Rivers of London sounds good based on that sentence and the title.
I have read a few of Lisa Unger and have enjoyed them Renee.All these tempt me…what are you reading right now Renee?
I’m just starting Small Admissions by Amy Poeppal and also finishing up YOU by Caroline Kepnes on audio which is outstanding!
I have read “You” – it was deliciously creepy. I haven’t heard of Small Admissions – what genre is it?
It releases Dec 27th, I would say it’s contemporary fiction/women’s fiction
They look so lovely! Rivers of London really intrigues me, looking forward to your reviews. Happy reading Carol 😀 📚
It has a good hook doesn’t it Anne ? Nearly finished Shame the Devil- it is great! Then onto the next but I can’t decide which one😊
At times i’m such a kid (in a candy store) when it comes to picking my next book. I read the 1st line or paragraph of a few & whichever one grabs me, that’s the one i continue with…LOL
Silly but fun & it works for me 🐸
I might have to try your method Anne 🙂
I spotted ‘Writing the Dream’ in there! I hope you enjoy! x
And your chapter is first up to read!!
I’m lucky my surname starts with ‘A’!
Not just that – I have picked the writers I have met/read or know of first 😊
