This Week in Books is a feature hosted by Lipsy at Lipsyy Lost and Found that allows bloggers to share:
- What they’ve recently finished reading
- What they are currently reading
- What they are planning to read next
The last book I finished reading was When You See Me by Lisa Gardner. I’ll be sharing my review next week as part of the blog tour, but I couldn’t read this quickly enough.
A body is found in the hills – but the truth still lies buried…
In a small town in the Deep South, Flora Dane is part of a task force committed to hunting down every last trace of notorious serial kidnapper Jacob Ness. As his last victim, imprisoned by Ness in a small box for over a year, she knew him better than most. Even after his death, his evil still lingers.
But this is the kind of town that doesn’t take kindly to strangers asking questions.
The kind of town where dark secrets lurk just beneath the surface.
The kind of town she might not leave alive.
My current read is another blog tour read – Little Friends by Jane Shemilt.
Their children are friends first. They instantly hit it off, as only kids do.
So the parents are forced to get to know each other.
But as they get closer, they start to take their eyes off their children.
And while they have been looking the other way, evil has crept in.
Every parent’s worst nightmare is about to come true…
I’m still having a little trouble sticking to a plan, but my next read might be The Wych Elm by Tana French.
WHAT DO WE HIDE INSIDE OURSELVES?
One night changes everything for Toby. He’s always led a charmed life – until a brutal attack leaves him damaged and traumatised, unsure even of the person he used to be. He seeks refuge at his family’s ancestral home, the Ivy House, filled with memories of wild-strawberry summers and teenage parties with his cousins.
But not long after Toby’s arrival, a discovery is made: a skull, tucked neatly inside the old wych elm in the garden.
As detectives begin to close in, Toby is forced to examine everything he thought he knew about his family, his past, and himself.
A spellbinding book from a novelist who takes crime writing and turns it inside out, The Wych Elm asks what we become, and what we’re capable of, if we no longer know who we are.
And that’s my week in books! What are you reading this week? Let me know in the comments! 😎
