**Weekly Wrap Up**

Whooopeee I’ve actually managed to read three books this week, in between the hours spent job hunting, the less said about that the better!

A Room Full Of Killers by Michael Wood

I’m a huge fan of the Matilda Drake Series, even more so after reading this book, it’s brilliant and definitely the darkest one yet.

Right Behind You by Lisa Gardner

I enjoyed this book but not the best in the series.

Phantom Limb by Lucinda Berry

Book description

Emily and Elizabeth spend their childhood locked in a bedroom and terrorized by a mother who drinks too much and disappears for days. The identical twins are rescued by a family determined to be their saviors.

But there’s some horrors love can’t erase…

Elizabeth wakes in a hospital, strapped to her bed and unable to move or speak. The last thing she remembers is finding Emily’s body in their bathroom. Days before, she was falling in love and starting college. Now, she’s surrounded by men who talk to themselves and women who pull out their eyebrows.

As she delves deeper into the mystery surrounding Emily’s death, she discovers shocking secrets and holes in her memory that force her to remember what she’s worked so hard to forget—the beatings, the blood, the special friends. Her life spins out of control at a terrifying speed as she desperately tries to unravel the psychological puzzle of her past before it’s too late.

ARC’s I received this week

I only received three books this week, one I requested on the dreaded NetGalley and forgot about. I’ve managed not to request anything on NetGalley for a whole week, I posted a couple of reviews on there but I didn’t even look to see what new books were on there. So you see I do have some willpower😂

The second book I received is top secret at the moment, so my lips are well and truly sealed 🤐🤐🤐

and the third book Child Taken by Darren Young is for the blog tour later on in the year

I’m really looking forward to reading this book over the weekend.

Book description

A brilliantly breath-taking thriller with twists you’ll never see coming. The start of a new series from international bestseller Arne Dahl.

Someone is watching.

At each abandoned crime scene there’s a hidden clue: a tiny metal cog, almost invisible to the naked eye. Someone is sending Detective Sam Berger a message, and that someone knows that only he will understand the cryptic trail.

Someone knows.

When another teenaged girl disappears without trace, Sam must convince his superiors that they’re dealing with a serial kidnapper and possible killer. As the police continue the hunt to find the latest kidnap victim, Sam is forced to unearth long buried personal demons – he has no choice if he is to understand the brute’s darkly personal message before time runs out.

Child Taken by Darren Young

Book description

One hot summer’s day, two-year-old Jessica Preston disappears from the beach. The police are convinced she drowned, but Sandra Preston won’t give up hope that her daughter is still alive.

Twenty years later, another child goes missing, and Sandra is approached by a young journalist who raises questions about what really happened to Jessica Preston all those years ago. But when the journalist discovers someone with an explosive secret, it threatens not only to reveal what’s been covered up for so long, but puts both their lives in danger.

I also bought one book this week,

#TopFiveThursday

Not actually book related but it’s my blog, my rules! Right? I have to mention today’s a special day in our household our “old boy”  Milo reaches the grand old age of 14 today, which is an incredible feat when you consider the vet came to the house eighteen months ago to put it him down as he was in so much pain! He really is an incredible character and we love him dearly and yes he has got presents and a cake!
