This Week In Books (16th January 2018)

First TWIB of the year!


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.

I haven’t been blogging much since last week for a very good reason… I can’t stop reading! As soon as a novel is over, I grab the next one, and so far I have been very lucky with my choices…

∧ Then ∧ Twisted by Steve Cavanagh / Gone By Midnight by Candice Fox




1. The police are looking to charge me with murder.
2. No one knows who I am. Or how I did it.
3. If you think you’ve found me. I’m coming for you next.

After you’ve read this book, you’ll know: the truth is far more twisted…



It was my first Steve Cavanagh… What a ride! I’m still looking for words to put into my review…

On the fifth floor of the White Caps Hotel, four young boys are left alone while their parents dine downstairs.

But when one of the parents checks on the children at midnight, they discover one of them is missing.

The boys swear they stayed in their room. CCTV confirms that none of them left the building. No trace of the child is found.

Now the hunt is on to find him, before it’s too late – and before the search for a boy becomes a search for a body…

OMG. This book. What’s inside is just as great as the proof cover!!! Review soon!

When All Is Said by Anne Griffin
La vie rêvée de Margaret (How To Walk Away) by Katherine Center


Attention, un rêve peut en cacher un autre…

Margaret est sur le point d’entamer le brillant avenir pour lequel elle s’est donné tant de mal : un job de rêve, un fiancé qu’elle adore, et la promesse d’une vie parfaite. Puis soudain, son rêve s’effondre. Hospitalisée, Margaret doit affronter l’impensable et se faire une raison : rien ne sera plus jamais pareil.

Face à l’adversité, Margaret découvre que la vie n’a pas dit son dernier mot. Parfois, la dernière chose qu’on souhaite est précisément celle dont on a besoin. Parfois, on espère que quelqu’un sera là pour nous rattraper avant la chute. Et parfois, on trouve l’amour là où on l’attend le moins.

Plein d’espoir, tendre et courageux, ce roman vous fera passer du rire aux larmes.

Margaret Jacobsen has a bright future ahead of her: a fiancé she adores, her dream job, and the promise of a picture-perfect life just around the corner. Then, suddenly, on what should have been one of the happiest days of her life, everything she worked for is taken away in one tumultuous moment.

In the hospital and forced to face the possibility that nothing will ever be the same again, Margaret must figure out how to move forward on her own terms while facing long-held family secrets, devastating heartbreak, and the idea that love might find her in the last place she would ever expect.

How to Walk Away is Katherine Center at her very best: an utterly charming, hopeful, and romantic novel that will capture reader’s hearts with every page.

My second French ARC! I’m excited to start reviewing in my native language! Let’s hope I can find the words!!!

∨ Next ∨ Death in Dulwich by Alice Castle

death in dulwich

Thirty-something single mum, Beth Haldane, has her hands full – with a bouncy young son, a haughty cat, a fringe with a mind of its own, and bills to pay. She loves her little home in plush London suburb Dulwich, but life here doesn’t come cheap.

She is thrilled to land the post of archivist at top local school, Wyatt’s, though she secretly fears she’s not up to the job. But even Beth couldn’t have imagined how badly things could go, until she discovers a hideous crime and finds herself prime suspect.

Setting out to clear her name, Beth encounters a cast of characters who will follow her through the London Murder Mystery series, proving along the way that the nicest places can hide the nastiest secrets.

I bought this book at Dulwich Books when I was living in London, so this books is special to me…

  1. I’m reading The Widows of Malabar Hill, by Sujata Massey. It’s a mystery set in 1920s India and one of the first female lawyers as the protagonist. I’ve got a stack of thrillers/mysteries to read. Now you’ve added a few more to the list!


  2. Not being able to blog because your books are too good isn’t all that bad either. 😉 I love the sound of Twisted and Gone By Midnight (and boy that cover is stunning!!). Yay for French ARCs! Although I probably ‘je ne comprends pas’ of your review. xD I’m sure your review will be wonderful as they always are. ❤ xx
