5 Star Books to Keep a Look Out For

I just wanted to share some recent 5 star book discoveries that I will be reviewing soon; some have recently been published, some will be published in the next month or so. Some are  by debut authors, some are  by favourites that never disappoint.  I highly recommend these – as I read each one I thought “this is the best book I have read this year,” and then I read THE NEXT AND THOUGHT THE SAME THING. Such talent.

In The Mail 18th November 2016

I am very excited by the books that arrived in the mail this week.

Books 18/11/016

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!

Win With “Reluctantly Charmed”

Which reminds me I must write up my review of Reluctantly Charmed 🙂 More on that later.
