**Weekly Wrap Up**


What a week I’ve managed to read about a 100 pages of a book this week, not because I haven’t had the time I just haven’t picked up anything that’s gripped me. Previous to the 100 pages I picked up two books but I couldn’t get into either of them so unfortunately I think reading mojo has well and truly deserted me so if anyone finds it please return ASAP 😂😂 at a 100 pages I gave up on this book as well (a very rare occurrence, as I hate giving up on a book).


ARC’s I received this week

I only received two books this week, which in the grand scheme of things is brilliant as it means I haven’t really added to my TBR pile, and thinking about it I haven’t bought a book for weeks I think there is something seriously wrong here I may require medical attention 😂😂



Book description

When Jo Harding falls down the stairs at home, she wakes up in hospital with partial amnesia – she’s lost a whole year of memories.

A lot can happen in a year. Was Jo having an affair? Lying to her family? Starting a new life?

She can’t remember what she did – or what happened the night she fell.

But she’s beginning to realise she might not be as good a wife and mother as she thought.


Book description

Fifteen years later, Alison and Kitty are living separate lives. Kitty lives in a care home. She can’t speak, and she has no memory of the accident that put her here, or her life before it.

Art teacher Alison looks fine on the surface. But the surface is a lie. When a job in a prison comes up she decides to take it – this is her chance to finally make things right.

But someone is watching Kitty and Alison.
Someone who wants revenge for what happened that day.
And only another life will do…

Latest news from the book review café

From next week I will be posting the occasional guest review from the lovely Joanna (Jo) Park, we got chatting over on twitter, and Jo happily agreed to write some reviews for the book review café. You can read Jo’s reviews over on https://www.goodreads.com/user/show/26160119-joanna-park. I’ve been looking at getting someone to help with occasional guest reviews and luckily for me along came the very lovely Jo you can read her first review on Monday, and I know she’s very nervous about it.

IMG_1713Hi I’m Joanna Park. I’m a stay at home mum to two children from Malvern in Worcestershire. Any spare time I have, normally when the kids are asleep, is spent reading! I will read anything, apart from horror but my favorite is historical fiction or thrillers. I got into reviewing by accident after seeing a comment about Netgalley on Facebook but am really enjoying it and have met some great people!

        I can always find the time to eat chocolate 🍫 mind you I don’t think 8.5 hours each day sat in front a computer screen is helping at the moment 🙈

    Blood Sisters sounds so good!

    Sorry to hear about the reading mojo. Been there, done that. It’ll come back! Besides, it’s not like you haven’t been insanely busy, working 6/7!

    Welcome to Joanne! I’m sure she’ll be fab!

    I sympathise with the disappearing reading mojo, I’ve been struggling lately and keep picking up books (that I really do want to read) but then putting away again after a few pages. Hope yours comes back soon. Its not a natural state for a #bookworm to be in!

    Looking forward to reading Joanne’s reviews 🙂

    It’s horrid when the reading mojo deserts you. I could lend you some of my reading mojo if you could lend me some of your willpower as I seem be acquiring all the books at the moment! 😉 I’ll look forward to reading Joanne’s reviews on your blog 🙂

    Fingers crossed your mojo returns ASAP Lorraine! It can be so frustrating when every book you pick up doesn’t grab you and as you said it probably doesn’t help that you’re reading on a computer all day. The right book will come along I’m sure:) Really looking forward to Joanna’s guest reviews!

    I hope you find your mojo soon! For me, it’s been the opposite. I’ve been reading a LOT but it’s because I have no mojo in the rest of my life (work, at least)


  6. Lena

    I’m in the same kind of rut. Isn’t it so frustrating? I will really want to sit and dive into a book, but something just doesn’t click for me to enjoy it. I hope your mojo’s back soon!
