Some more great reads here- where to start? I have heard good things about Jo Spain’s books, Peter May – well of course this will be great! I have started Path to the Night Sea – a dark yet optimistic read…Brain Rules for Ageing Well ( yes I must read this) and The Clever Guts Recipe Book – I think it is time I discovered what all the hype about those eggplant brownies is about (and check out a few more of the recipes).
Great haul there Carol 🙂
Are you reading any of these Tracey?
Nope, none are on my TBR (either requested or received unsolicited).
I’ve read excellent reviews of the Peter May book. So you’re definitely in luck there. He’s one of my top 10 writers, I can’t wait to read this.
Not familiar with either Spain or Gilmore so I’ll be interested to read your reviews. The gut health & brain book book sound like something we could all use!
Gut health, brain health are very popular topics at the moment- will be interesting to see what they add to the discussion. Peter May -is thus a standalone? I hope so. The Gilmore – now finished and I need a debrief or Robert Crais novel to ease my mind… a brutal story of surviving horrendous abuse… very well written, heart breaking.
Yes Peter May’s is a standalone (for now 😉), it’s the same setting where the Lewis trilogy was set. Fingers crossed he turns this into a series. I just love the Hebrides location.
The Gilmore book may be too dark for me.
Alicia Gilmore’s novel, Path to the Night Sea is indeed dark, optimistic and thought provoking. It is beautifully written, almost impossible to put down and engages the reader from start to finish. I’m now impatiently waiting for the sequel!
It is hard to believe this is a debut novel – the writing is excellent- the voices – incredible.
