I’m off to book club this evening, where we’ll be discussing The Remains of the Day, so will catch up with your posts as soon as I can 🙂
I’m reading The Foster Child by Jenny Blackhurst
I’m only a couple of chapters into this book but is off to a promising start.
When child psychologist Imogen Reid takes on the case of 11-year-old Ellie Atkinson, she refuses to listen to warnings that the girl is dangerous.
Ellie was the only survivor of a fire that killed her family. Imogen is convinced she’s just a sad and angry child struggling to cope with her loss.
But Ellie’s foster parents and teachers are starting to fear her. When she gets upset, bad things seem to happen. And as Imogen gets closer to Ellie, she may be putting herself in danger…
I recently finished To Grow on Stony Ground by Steve Mee (unpublished novel/beta read)
When this author gets an agent and gets this book out there, you can remember that you saw/heard all about it here first! If you’re into historical fiction and in particular set around the World Wars then this book will be for you.
“Fifteen thousand feeble-minded people and lunatics have been killed and I was there when it happened” What a hook!
What’s up next? The Seven Deaths of Evelyn Hardcastle by Stuart Turton
I’ve heard so much praise for this book, I couldn’t possibly put it off any longer. I do hope I get all the feels every one else has had!
‘Somebody’s going to be murdered at the ball tonight. It won’t appear to be a murder and so the murderer won’t be caught. Rectify that injustice and I’ll show you the way out.’
It is meant to be a celebration but it ends in tragedy. As fireworks explode overhead, Evelyn Hardcastle, the young and beautiful daughter of the house, is killed.
But Evelyn will not die just once. Until Aiden – one of the guests summoned to Blackheath for the party – can solve her murder, the day will repeat itself, over and over again. Every time ending with the fateful pistol shot.
The only way to break this cycle is to identify the killer. But each time the day begins again, Aiden wakes in the body of a different guest. And someone is determined to prevent him ever escaping Blackheath…
Have you read any of my choices this week?
