This Week in Books

This Week in Books – 09-03-22

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.


A bit of a slow reading week, but I finished Reputation by Sarah Vaughan which I reviewed on Monday as part of the blog tour.

Emma is a high-profile MP. Impassioned and empathetic, she wants to make a positive difference but faces threats and trolling as she tries to work in the public eye.

When she launches a campaign to protect women from the effects of online bullying, the abuse steps up. And when her teenage daughter’s character is called into question, Emma learns how far she will go to protect both their reputations.

But still: how did she come to be standing trial for murder? She only lied once – didn’t she?


My current read is The Mother Fault by Kate Mildenhall.

To keep her children safe, she must put their lives at risk …

In suburban Australia, Mim and her two children live as quietly as they can. Around them, a near-future world is descending into chaos: government officials have taken absolute control, but not everybody wants to obey the rules.

When Mim’s husband Ben mysteriously disappears, Mim realises that she and her children are in great danger. Together, they must set off on the journey of a lifetime to find Ben. The government are trying to track them down, but Mim will do anything to keep her family safe – even if it means risking all their lives.

Can the world ever return to normality, and their family to what it was?


I’m not sure what I’ll read next. Maybe Cecily by Annie Garthwaite.

1431 is a dangerous time for a woman to be defiant.

England has been fighting France for 100 years. At home, power-hungry men within a corrupt government manipulate a weak king – and name Cecily’s husband, York’s loyal duke, an enemy. As the king’s grasp on sanity weakens, plots to destroy York take root…

It will take all of Cecily’s courage and cunning to save her family. But when the will to survive becomes ambition for a crown, will she risk treason to secure it?

Inside closed bedchambers and upon bloody battlefields, Cecily portrays war as women fight it.


And that’s my week in books! What are you reading this week? Let me know in the comments! 😎

    1. 😂 It’s not an easy one to review. I think that being on the blog tour helped as it made me get on with it!

  1. I really need to pick up Cecily again. I tried a few months back but put it back on the shelf when I was in that horrible reading mood. Maybe I’ll have more luck the second time.

    1. It really will be! I picked it mainly because it’s my oldest (in terms of purchase date) unread book, but I’m ready for something different so it works from that perspective too
