Book Review: Walk in Silence by J. G. Sinclair

Walk in Silence J. G. Sinclair

Immediately after finishing this book, I had three thoughts: 1 – this is a very good book. 2 – why did I leave it on my shelf for so long before reading it? 3 – how did I not know there were two books that came before it!?

From the back cover:

Find the boy. Bring him home. Keep him safe.

Keira Lynch is a lawyer who’s no stranger to trouble; but having only just landed in Albania, she’s already up to her neck in it. She thought money would help her find the boy, but in a brutal underworld where anything can be bartered – trust, loyalty, even lives – his kidnappers have other ideas.

They want the freedom of one of their gang members. A man Keira is about to help bring to trial back in the UK; a man who once put three bullets in her chest.

Can she walk away in silence, and save the boy? Or will she have to play the game, fight and risk losing everything? Continue reading “Book Review: Walk in Silence by J. G. Sinclair”

Book Review: The Woman in the Wood by Lesley Pearse

The Woman in the Wood - Lesley Pearse

I’ve been wanting to read a book by Lesley Pearse for ages, she’s penned so many books and a few have caught my attention (namely, Dead to Me); when I read the synopsis for The Woman in the Wood, I knew it would finally be my first Lesley Pearse book!

Book Description:

Fifteen-year-old Maisy Mitcham and her twin brother Duncan lose their mother to an asylum one night in 1960. The twins are sent to their grandmother’s country house, Nightingales. Cold and distant, she leaves them to their own devices, to explore and to grow. That is until the day Duncan doesn’t come home from the woods. With their grandmother seeming to have little interest in her grandson’s disappearance, and the police soon giving up hope, it is left to Maisy to discover the truth. And she will start with Grace Deville. A woman who lives alone in the wood, about whom rumours abound . . . Continue reading “Book Review: The Woman in the Wood by Lesley Pearse”

#BookHaul: June 2017

I know the question you’re dying to ask me… last month I placed myself on a book buying ban, so, naturally, you want to know – did I buy any books? No, I did not! But don’t congratulate me just yet because I did pre-order a book. Not just any old pre-order but a signed hardback with sprayed edged! Not only am I super excited for this books release [in September], this is also the most amount of money, I have ever, in my 28 years of living, spent on a book but it was so worth it. Ladies and Gentlemen, I pre-ordered the second book in the Nevernight Chronicle:

May 2017 #WrapUp

Better late than never, lovely readers, it’s time to wrap up the month of May. In between long periods of procrastination, I submitted two 3,000 word coursework assignments, revised and sat a biology exam and still found time to read 13 books, so I’d say I had a productive month! I also bought a new car, which tops everything, I love it and will drive it for years to come, until it literally falls to pieces as I’m driving. Although, that does now mean I’m on a strict book buying ban, not even a 99p ebook, so if my fellow bloggers could hold back on their amazing reviews and book recommendations, I’d appreciate it – June’s book haul post shall be an interesting one.

That’s enough about me and my life, on to the books! I read some stellar books in May…

The Good:

The standout 5 star reads of the month were:

#BookHaul: May 2017

This is my most loved and feared blog post to write each month – loved, because how could acquiring more books cause you anything by a feeling of love in your heart? And feared, because why is my TBR taller than me!? You know the drill, so let’s get right to it!
