I can’t believe we’re in August already, where has the year gone, let alone the last month? Which can mean only one thing it’s time to choose my book of the month for July. Now this Month choice is some what different to previous months, more on that further down this post!
The Book Of The Month is chosen by myself at the beginning of every month, for the previous month. It goes to the author/book that I found outstanding for that month, and I may have given a higher rating than a 5 star review if I actually star rated books on my blog.
You all know by now I’m indecisive and very often choose more than one book. Yes I’ve chosen two books again this month! but unusually it’s for two books by the same author and it’s a crime series.
I absolutely loved these books and they had all the elements I look for when reading a book, well developed characters, a strong plot and bucketfuls of suspense. So without further ado the books I have choosen are………
Those That Remain by Rob Ashman
I think I have just found myself a new crime thriller author and series that will be going straight on my “must read authors list”. What a gripping book Those That Remain turned out to be. I do love American based crime thrillers they always seem so much darker and twisted. To say I loved this novel is an understatement it’s probably one of the best debut crime thrillers I’ve read this year in fact. You can read my full review here…….Those That Remain Review
In Your Name by Rob Ashman
I thought this series couldn’t get any better but I’m pleased to report I was wrong, if anything this book is darker, and definitely more gruesome, the pace is relentless so you don’t have time to catch your breath before the next big shock comes along. I should point out all though Rob Ashman is a British author this novel reads very much like it’s been written by an American, the settings are authentic and the scenes frighteningly disturbing just the way I like my crime thrillers.
