This week I’ve managed to read three books, ok two plus a novella but it’s still a 100% better than last week. Stepping away from social media for a day really helped and in fact it worked so well I’m going to make it a regular event. Thanks to awesome book blogger Renee over at http://itsbooktalk.com who came up with the tag #StepawayTuesday, I will not go near social media on a Tuesday.
Personally I found it worked for me as I really do spend to many hours trawling social media when I could be reading. I did miss reading fellow bloggers awesome reviews, and yes it meant that I missed the most exciting news of the year Last Breath by Robert Bryndza was up on NetGalley shocker! But on the plus side I now have three reviews for the books I’ve read this week.
Books I’ve read this week
Bully Boy Blue by John Nicholl
Last Breath by Robert Bryndza
Sometimes I Lie by Alice Feeney
ARC’s I’ve received this week
One Of Us Is Lying by Karen M. McManus
Five students go to detention. Only four leave alive.
On Thursday afternoon, five students at Bayview High walk into detention. Bronwyn, the brain, is Yale-bound and never breaks a rule. Addy, the beauty, is the picture-perfect homecoming princess. Nate, the bad boy, is already on probation for dealing. Cooper, the jock, is the all-star baseball pitcher. And Simon, the outcast, is the creator of Bayview High’s notorious gossip app. Only, Simon never makes it out of that classroom. Before the end of detention, Simon’s dead. And according to investigators, his death wasn’t an accident. On Thursday, he died. But on Friday, he’d planned to post juicy reveals about all four of his high-profile classmates, which makes all four of them suspects in his murder. Or are they just the perfect patsies for a killer who’s still on the loose? Everyone has secrets, right? What really matters is how far you would go to protect them.
Last Breath by Robert Bryndza
I’m so excited to read the next book in the Erika Foster series, anyone who follows my blog will know I’m a huge fan of Robert and have been known to go a bit overboard with my reviews for this awesome series 🙈
He’s your perfect date. You’re his next victim.
When the tortured body of a young woman is found in a dumpster, her eyes swollen shut and her clothes soaked with blood, Detective Erika Foster is one of the first at the crime scene. The trouble is, this time, it’s not her case.
While she fights to secure her place on the investigation team, Erika can’t help but get involved and quickly finds a link to the unsolved murder of a woman four months earlier. Dumped in a similar location, both women have identical wounds – a fatal incision to their femoral artery.
Stalking his victims online, the killer is preying on young pretty women using a fake identity. How will Erika catch a murderer who doesn’t seem to exist?
Then another girl is abducted while waiting for a date. Erika and her team must get to her before she becomes another dead victim, and, come face to face with a terrifyingly sadistic individual.
