This Week in Books

This Week in Books – 21-07-21

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

A similar meme is run by Taking on a World of Words.


The last book I finished reading was We Begin at the End by Chris Whitaker. And yes, I’m VERY late to the party on this one! 😬

Thirty years ago, Vincent King became a killer.

Now, he’s been released from prison and is back in his hometown of Cape Haven, California. Not everyone is pleased to see him. Like Star Radley, his ex-girlfriend, and sister of the girl he killed.

Duchess Radley, Star’s thirteen-year-old daughter, is part-carer, part-protector to her younger brother, Robin – and to her deeply troubled mother. But in trying to protect Star, Duchess inadvertently sets off a chain of events that will have tragic consequences not only for her family, but also the whole town.

Murder, revenge, retribution.

How far can we run from the past, when the past seems doomed to repeat itself?


My current read is The Dark Archive by Genevieve Cogman – the seventh instlament in the absolutely brilliant Invisible Library series.

A mysterious archive. A powerful enemy. And a cunning plan.

Danger is part of the day job for a Librarian spy. So Irene’s hoping for a relaxing weekend. However, her jaunt to Guernsey proves no such thing. Instead of retrieving a rare book, she’s almost assassinated, Kai is poisoned and Vale barely escapes with his life. Then the attacks continue in London – targeting those connected with the Fae-dragon peace treaty.

Irene knows she must stop the plot before the treaty fails. Or someone dies. But when Irene and friends are trapped underground, in a secret archive, things don’t look so good. Then an old enemy demands vengeance, and a shocking secret is revealed. Can Irene really seize victory from chaos?


My next read will probably be The Betrayals by Bridget Collins.

When Léo joined the Montverre academy he was a nobody, but he dreamed of winning its legendary Great Game.

When Carfax joined, he was notorious: the son of a family renowned for their brilliance – and their madness.

Their rivalry would end in tragedy.

Years later, Léo returns to Montverre. Carfax is gone, but his sister is now the first ever female master of the Game.

As secrets whisper in the walls, what will Léo do to win this time?
