It seems like forever since I last posted a currently reading post and I must admit I am behind with the amount of books I have wanted to read so far this year (I think I am currently on 10) but I have a new pile to get stuck into and hopefully with the sun making an appearance I can spend some time in the garden getting my tan on and catching up!
This month I have a mix, I cant resist a bit of a thriller but have also added a true story and something a bit more light hearted.
The loving husband – When Fran wakes one night to find her husband Nathan missing, she makes a devastating discovery. Questions about their relationship start to mount and Fran’s life begins to spiral out of control.
I am already three quarters of the way through this and enjoying it. It is quite creepy particularly reading it at night time with a quiet house as I usually do! Although I have nearly finished it, I’m still not sure where the story is going which is always a good sign.
It started with a tweet – When Daisy’s social media obsession causes her to make a catastrophic mistake at work, her sister Rosie suggests a digital detox at a remote cottage but will the hunk next door be enough of a distraction to survive without her phone?
I imagine this story is something we can all relate to, I know I could probably do with a digital detox but it is hard to imagine life with our online world nowadays! I love that fellow blogger Louise Pentland’s review is on the front cover and she says it’s “The perfect laugh-out-loud love story”
Secret child – The inspiring story of a boy born in 1950’s Dublin and raised as a secret child in a home for unmarried mothers as his own mother was so determined to keep him, he was hidden from the world including the rest of her family.
I do love a true story, particularly those based in a different era as it gives a great idea of what the time was actually like. Looking forward to reading this one!
In a cottage in a wood – Neve comes across a stranger named Isabelle on a bridge, who hands her something before jumping to her death in the Thames below. A couple of weeks later she finds out that a charming cottage has been left to her by Isabelle, is this a solution to her problems in London or the beginning of her worst nightmare?
I really like the sound of this book it seems quite dark and I imagine it will be a gripping read, I think I’ll read it in the day rather than at night though!
As well as these I have also been downloading books onto my Kindle and have realised that with my Prime subscription I can borrow up to 10 books/magazines from a selection so have a long list waiting for me. I am currently making my way through these two…
From my last list of books my favourites were Behind Her Eyes which I thoroughly recommend just for the unexpected ending and When I was Invisible because I love the way Dorothy Koomson writes. I was expecting a lot from Truly Madly Guilty as it was praised by so many people but I was left disappointed. It was a good book but I felt it dragged a bit and with six main characters I had to keep going back to remind myself of who was who.
Hopefully I will get through these quicker than the last, what have you got on your reading pile at the moment?
