This Week In Books (June 7th 2017)


This Week In Books is a weekly update on what you’ve been reading hosted by Lipsyy Lost & Found . A similar meme is hosted by Sam @ Taking on a World of Words.

∧ Then ∧ Liar, K.L. Slater


How far would you go to protect your family?

Single dad Ben is doing his best to raise his children alone, with the help of his devoted mother Judi. Life isn’t easy, but Judi’s family means everything to her and together, they manage.

Then Ben meets Amber. Everyone thinks this is a perfect match for Ben but Judi isn’t sure … there’s just something about Amber that doesn’t add up.

Ben can’t see why his mother dislikes his new girlfriend. And Amber doesn’t want Judi anywhere near her new family. Amber just wants Ben and the children.

The further Judi delves into Amber’s personal life, the closer she gets to shocking secrets that could change everything. And Judi must make a decision that could lead to the most disastrous consequences.

K.L. Slater should wear a crown of Big Twists Queen.

≈ Now ≈ Two Sisters, Kerry Wilkinson

two sisters

They told us he had been missing for nearly two days, that he probably drowned. They told us a lie.

Megan was ten years old when her older brother, Zac, went missing among the cliffs, caves and beaches that surround the small seaside town of Whitecliff. 

A decade later and a car crash has claimed the lives of her parents.

Megan and her younger sister Chloe return to Whitecliff one summer for the first time since their brother’s disappearance. Megan says it’s to get her parents’ affairs in order. There are boxes to pack, junk to clear, a rundown cottage to sell. But that’s not the real reason. 

Megan has come to confront her family’s past after receiving a postcard on the day of her parents’ funeral. It had a photograph of Whitecliff on the front and a single letter on the back.

‘Z’ is all it read.

Z for Zac.

A totally gripping psychological thriller that will have fans of Louise Jensen, Sue Fortin and The Silent Child absolutely hooked.

It looks like I’m treating myself with my favorite genre a lot to keep life’s pressure low!

Also currently rereading….


∨ Next ∨ The Other Girl, Erica Spindler

the other girl

Officer Miranda Rader of the Hammond PD in Louisiana is known for her honesty, integrity, and steady hand in a crisis—but that wasn’t always so. Miranda comes from Jasper, just south of Hammond, a place about the size of a good spit on a hot day, and her side of the tracks was the wrong one. She’s worked hard to leave the girl she used to be behind and earn respect in her position as an officer.

However, when Miranda and her partner are called to investigate the murder of one of the town’s most beloved college professors, they’re unprepared for the gruesomeness of the scene. This murder is unlike any they’ve ever investigated, and just when Miranda thinks she’s seen the worst of it, she finds a piece of evidence that chills her to the core: a faded newspaper clipping about a terrible night from her long-buried past. Then another man turns up dead, this one a retired cop, and not just any cop—Clint Wheeler, the cop who took her statement that night. Two murders, two very different men, two killings that on the surface had nothing in common—except Miranda. 15 years ago.

And when her fingerprints turn up at the scene of the first murder, Miranda once again finds herself under the microscope, her honesty and integrity doubted, her motivations questioned. Alone again, the trust of her colleagues shattered, Miranda must try to trust the instincts she’s pushed down for so long, and decide what’s right—before it’s too late.

The publication date for this book is so far away but I’ve heard great things about the author, so I’m going in early!

This list is subject to changes as I’m planning a buddy-read and my mood changes so fast I might end up reading completely different things in the next days…

That’s it for this week! What’s on your reading list? Let me know!!

  1. Okay, I need to read Liar soon. Your comment definitely has me intrigued. I can’t wait to read your review of Two Sisters. I read a few pages but it started out a bit slow so I set it aside for a while. I hope to read it again soon though. The Other Girl does sound great. I think I will read it in August though you reading it now has me tempted to do the same lol. Looking forward to your review. Happy reading Donna.


    1. Oh yes, read it! I’d love your thoughts on this one! It was totally different from Blink but the style is here, and the twists… well, they are too!! I haven’t started Two Sisters yet 😦 I’m trying to cram as much as possible for my tests, and I haven’t had the time to pick a book, it’s depressing!
      Haha, I know, August is so far, but there’s something about it that calls me! Happy reading my friend! xx


  2. I love Furiously Happy! I hope you are enjoying it, and getting as much out of it as I did.. You are never alone is one of the main things I got from it. Also I believe now that everyone should have a stuffed happy Racoon… ❤


  3. A good choice of books there. You have been quite diverse recently so going back to a good load of crime thrillers will be nice. Hopefully they will be gripping page turners.
    Furiously happy is a good one to read among any other book I think.
    Happy reading.


    1. My favorite genre is always a fabulous boost to my mood, despite the blood and the awful scenarios, haha! I haven’t touched a book in two days, though 😦 I’m hoping to find some time this weekend.
      Furiously happy is always in my bag, and I’m entirely rereading it to help me overcome some issues reappearing in the run up to the tests… Happy reading to you my dear Amanda 🙂 Thank you, as always xx

  4. These all sound like pretty interesting books Donna, I really hope you enjoy Two Sisters and The Other Girl (if your list doesn’t change, the perils of being a mood reader right?) and I’m glad you enjoyed Liar as well. Even though it’s not really my kind of book I’m intrigued by the twist you mentioned! 😀


    1. Kim Slater is a master when it comes to twists you don’t see coming! 🙂 To tell you the truth, I haven’t touched a book since this was posted, so I haven’t started anything new 😦 But I’m hoping for some reading time soon! Happy reading to you!

    1. I’ve already read and reviewed it! 😀 It was what spurred me to share my thoughts and issues 🙂 I love this book and believe everyone should read it! I think you’d like it. Lots of humor and things you can relate to, said in the most fun ways. Happy reading my lovely Twin Pea ❤

  5. I’m so glad you enjoyed Liar as much as I did! I’m definitely putting her future books on my most-antipated list. 😉 I hope you are ‘enjoying’ Two Sisters; I’m actually writing the review right now… And the cover of Furiously Happy gets me every time haha; such a great book though. Happy reading! ❤


    1. Same here! Kim Slater kills me with her unforeseeable twists! I have no time to read 😦 so I’ll be starting everything when things calm down here. I’m cramming for tests and following my English program as well as my anxiety program, so I basically have no time left, even to wash my hair!
      I love Rory and its cover ❤ You can't stay mad or sad with it ❤ Happy reading!

      1. Make sure you get enough you-time; the books will wait for you! ❤ And just looking at Furiously Happy is like inhaling a dose of happy! I really have to do a reread some time as well…. I hope you will have a wonderful weekend! ❤
