I’ve not taken part in this for a while, but I have time to create a post this week so thought I would join in.

A Game of Thrones– I have finally gotten around to starting this series, A Game of Thrones has been on my shelf for ages. It’s long, but I’m enjoying in more and more the further I get into it. Shall probably finish this today. I’m reading it as part of the TBR Pile Challenge


Benediction– This one was a freebie from netgalley. I’ve heard good things about it so am looking forward to really reading it (have barely started). It’s an uncorrected proof though and doesn’t seem to have any quotation marks, which is a little annoying!

Finished Last Week.

House of Glass– another netgalley read, from an author I’ve read before. I think by the end I actually preferred this to the previous book I read by Sophie Littleford, but I had a few little annoyances too. I’ll probably review it next week.

Reviews


Attachments a pleasant romance, and good for this type of book. Nice for a relaxing read


The Train Ride was my Children’s Hour pick last week. Very simple story chronicling a train journey.

Benediction freebie via netgalley!

Dry bought for my kindle. It’s been on my wishlist since I read Running With Scissors (in my pre-blogging days) but it was on 99p on kindle so I finally bought it.

The Library of Unrequited Love also bought by me. A few people on BCF have been reading this one, and it sounded entertaining.

1Q84 almost done with book 2 now, the library will open just in time for me to be ready for book 3!

A Cupboard Full of Coats turned out really good, better than I thought at first. Review up some time later in the week.

Reviews

Boy Meets Boy freebie via netgalley!

The Returned also via netgalley. About dead people returning to life. Not a zombie novel but an emotional one.

Found Objects came as a review request from the publisher. A bit of a strange sounding one. A couple and their lover live together happily- but then the lover’s husband turns up.

Mother Mother a review request from the publishers. When Josephine’s daughter runs away from home Josephine will do anything to keep the rest of her family close.

Suite Française came from bookmooch. It’s a book set during the German occupation of France WW2. It chronicles the lives of ordinary people.

1Q84, Haruki Murakami, book, book cover

1Q84 Book 2– I read book 1 over a year ago, and struggled a little with it. Now I think I’m ready to tackle book two, I’m missing Murakami. So far it feels more promising than book one.

A cupboard full of coats, Yvvette Edwards, book, book cover
A Cupboard Full of Coats– is one that’s been on my kindle for quite some time. Is the story of Jinx. Jinx’s mother was murdered and Jinx’s feels responsible. Not sure what to think of it yet, I’m not very far in.


Finished Last Week.

ruth hamilton, that liverpool girl, book, book cover

That Liverpool Girl- a story set during WW2 following a family- some in Liverpool, and some evacuated. As a war story I was rather disappointed, but as a story in general it was ok. My review is written and scheduled for tomorrow.
the starboard sea, Amber Demont, book, book cover

The Starboard Sea– gosh how long have been reading this book? Seems like a long time. It did turn out ok in the end. It’s the story of a boy whose best friend committed suicide, and him getting his life back together. My review of this will hopefully be out sometime during the week too.

where's igglepiggle's blanket, book, book cover, picture book, in the night garden

Where’s Igglepiggle’s Blanket was my Children’s Hour pick last week. It’s taken from the children’s television series, In the Night Garden, and is about Igglepiggle losing his blanket (believe it or not!)

dexter, dexter in the dark, jeff lindsay, book, book cover

Dexter in the Dark is the third book in the Dexter series (see my reviews of book 1 and book 2). In book three Dexter’s ‘dark passenger’ seems to have gone AWOL. This book came to me via bookmooch.

the starboard sea, amber dermot, book, book cover
The Starboard Sea was sent to me for review by the publisher. It’s a coming of age story about a rich boy at a private school for those who need second chances. I’m not very far into it yet, so a bit early for any opinions.

capitol hell, book, book cover

Capitol Hell I was sent this one by the author. I hadn’t intended on reading it, because I’m not a chick-lit reader, but I fancied something light. It’s a sort of political The Devil Wears Prada.

Finished Last Week.

painter of silence, georgina harding, book, book cover

Painter of Silence follows a deaf and dumb man’s life through and after WW2 in Romania. The review will be out later this week.

caveman dave, nck sharrett, book, book cover, children's picture book
Caveman Dave was my Children’s Hour pick last week. It’s all about a caveman who is very brave but very smelly!

red winter, dan smith, book, book cover

Red Winter is a book I won from Lindsay @ The Little Reader Library. I seem to be having quite a lot of luck with giveaways recently! Red Winter is a sort of historical crime novel. After deserting the Red Army Kolya returns to his village only to find it deserted. What has happened to everyone?
