I’m currently reading…
This is our book club read for October and we meet next week so this book is my next read. I don’t think the person who chose it realised it was the second in a trilogy so I hope this doesn’t affect my understanding.
In kidnapping cases, the first few hours are crucial. After that, the chances of being found alive go from slim to nearly none. Alex Prévost – beautiful, resourceful, tough – may be no ordinary victim, but her time is running out. Commandant Camille Verhoeven and his detectives have nothing to go on: no suspect, no lead, rapidly diminishing hope. All they know is that a girl was snatched off the streets of Paris and bundled into a white van. The enigma that is the fate of Alex will keep Verhoeven guessing until the bitter, bitter end. And before long, saving her life will be the least of his worries.
I recently finished reading
I’m not really sure how I feel about this book, and will probably need to have a think about it over the next few days before I put my review together.
One of the main characters is just like someone I know, and just happened to have the same name which was a bit weird as I was reading (not in a good way either!).
They say every family has skeletons in their closet . . .
But what happens when you open the door and they won’t stop tumbling out?
For Adam and Beth the first secret wasn’t the last, it was just the beginning.
You think you can imagine the worst thing that could happen to your family, but there are some secrets that change everything.
And then the question is, how can you piece together a future when your past is being rewritten?
And I also finished
Claire at Art & Soul read this last Friday evening as read-along and we had a great Twitter conversation as we were going. It’s quite a short book of 90 or so pages but this edition also includes The Duchess of Bloomsbury Street. I really enjoyed Hanff’s humour and would recommend to those who love books about books (although I’d not heard of many in this book!)
It all began with a letter inquiring about second-hand books, written by Helene Hanff in New York, and posted to a bookshop at 84, Charing Cross Road in London. As Helene’s sarcastic and witty letters are responded to by the stodgy and proper Frank Doel of 84, Charing Cross Road, a relationship blossoms into a warm and charming long-distance friendship lasting many years.
What’s up next?
I don’t know, I’m undecided, please help me out. I have one, ONE book left on my Netgalley reading shelf that’s been there since earlier this year. But I also really want to read a book of my choice, for no other reason than just because. I have a few books that haven’t yet gone into my TBR jar so maybe one of those.
Here are my choices…
- My last Netgalley read is A Reunion of Ghosts by Judith Claire Mitchell
- Spectacles by Sue Perkins
- The Rest of Us Just Here by Patrick Ness
- After You by Jojo Moyes
- A Parcel for Anna Browne by Miranda Dickinson
Have you read any of this week’s choices? Let me know what you think I should read next…
