**Weekly Wrap Up**

The last couple of weeks I’ve struggled to read anything, my dad hasn’t been well so my mind has been else where, but this week I have managed to read two books and start a third

Blood Sister by Dreda Say Mitchell

I loved Blood Sister a really gripping read, unfortunately you won’t be able to read my review until the 19th August when it’s my stop on the blog tour

Nina Is Not Ok by Shappi Khorsandi

image

Not my usual type of read but this book blew me away I absolutely loved it,despite the subject matter, my review will be live on my blog next week

All Fall Down by Tom Bale

image

Really excited about reading All Fall Down by Tom Bale, I’m hoping it will be as good or if not better than his previous book See How They Run, I just love the cover I think publishers Bookouture have the most fantastic covers they just shout out “read me”

Book post I received this week

I won a copy of My Husband’s Wife by Jane Corry along with a lovely notebook and some chocolate over at Kate’s blog http://www.bibliophilebookclub.com

They All Fall Down by Cat Hogan

Turning Blue by Benjamin Myers

My Sister’s Bones by Nuala Ellwood

Arc’s I’ve received this week

Oh dear the NetGalley ban has truly gone out the window as you can see 🙈🙈

The Ice Beneath Her by Camilla Grebe

Darktown by Thomas Mullen

Saving Sophie by Sam Carrington

Nina Is Not Ok by Shappi Khorsandi

Surviving The Angel Of Death by Eva Mozes Kor and Lisa Rojany Buccieri

Books I’ve bought

I have been really good this week and not bought any books, there are a few I’m desperate to read, but I’m trying not to buy them just yet! I have borrowed two from my sister instead

Pretty Girls by Karin Slaughter

The Kept Woman by Karin Slaughter

I had the ARC but my copy was shocking it kept missing out letters so I literally had to guess the words, it got so annoying it was ruining a very good book, so I gave up on it!

 Blogging news from The Book Review Café

After nearly a year of blogging I’ve finally got around to joining Goodreads, I did have an account but completely forgot my log in details as I never used it! So I’ve rejoined as The Book Review Café (surprise, surprise).

I finally got myself a copy of Between You And Me by Lisa Hall, yes I’ve read it and loved it, but it’s not everyday you get a quote from your review in a book alongside some other fab bloggers.

And I also got a quote from another review featured in my Bloq by Alan Jones, which I’m thrilled to bits about as I loved this book (note the fabulous bloggers I’m sharing the page with, and congratulations to all😘😘)

  1. Great list there, saw Cat Hogan at the Wexford Literary festival and now since have been seeing ‘They All Fall Down’ everywhere, I have to get my hands on it! Also have to get to the two Tom Bale books. As for the netgalley ban, don’t fight it! Hope all goes better for your dad
