Welcome to This Week in Books, where we share what we’ve been up to in bookland this week and look ahead to next.
Happy Wednesday, Everyone! I can’t believe it’s almost October already. Best time of year!! 🙂
Here’s what I’ve been reading this week…
Now: The Silent Companions ~ Laura Purcell // Norse Mythology ~ Neil Gaiman
I read the first few pages of The Silent Companions but wasn’t fully paying attention and I had no idea what was going on. So I think I need to start again. Doesn’t bode well, though.
I haven’t got any further with Norse Mythology (which I’m keeping at work to read in those elusive lunch breaks), so nothing to report there, either.
Then: Misery ~ Stephen King
Misery was great, as expected! My review will be up during Horror October!
Next: ??? It’ll be I Am Behind You:
A supernatural superthriller from the author of Let the Right One In
Molly wakes her mother to go to the toilet. The campsite is strangely blank. The toilet block has gone. Everything else has gone too. This is a place with no sun. No god.
Just four families remain. Each has done something to bring them here – each denies they deserve it. Until they see what’s coming over the horizon, moving irrevocably towards them. Their worst mistake. Their darkest fear.
And for just one of them, their homecoming.
New on the Shelves
I didn’t buy, borrow or request any books this week! Yesssss.
I’m Waiting On…
A Very Vintage Christmas, because…I’m already excited for some festive action!
The fairy lights are up and shoppers are flooding the snowy seaside promenade. It’s going to be a busy month at Forget-Me-Not Vintage, a magical shop with a warm heart where every item has a story to be told.
With bright red hair and an infectious smile, Dodie is a hopeless romantic and absolutely one of a kind, just like the pieces in her shop.
When Dodie finds a love letter in the pocket of an old woollen coat, she makes it her mission to deliver it to its rightful owner. Following the address, she manages to persuade the handsome but reluctant new tenant, Edward, to help her with her search.
As the story of the letter unfolds, Dodie is there, as always, to pick up the pieces and make things right. But who will be there for her when her own love story needs a helping hand?
Is it too much to dream of a happy ending like the ones in the black and white movies she adores?
Expected Publication: September 28th 2017 by Bookouture
