My Bookish Weekly Wrap Up - Week 24 2018


Hello!! Greeted by this beauty in the garden this morning - it's a Lily I'm helping to trial for the Richard Jackson Garden team and if you are looking for the easiest to look after plant then I'd highly recommend this Lily 'Bright Joy'! We do like a plant that needs very little care!!

The sun continues to shine here in Essex and it seems to have helped no end with my reading and book acquiring habits!! Is that a good thing?! Yes to the first, No to the second! July definitely needs to be a more restrained month on the book buying front...... famous last words!

So this past week I've managed  to finish another 5 books and have acquired 8 books for the shelves! Oops! Here's a little look at all the bookish action! Please click on the book titles for a link to their GoodReads page for more info!

BOOKS FINISHED





Ahead of the Blog Tour for The Power of Dog I will be on in July, I read these two memoirs from Andrew Marshall and found them to be a really interesting look at grief and how to recover.




I loved revisiting this Little Duck Pond Cafe series and this is number 2 in the series! Really good read!




I loved this dark, menacing read!! Watch out for a full review in July on the Blog Tour!



A magical but often quite dark story! Very enjoyable and that cover is just gorgeous!!

The Rules of Seeing by Joe Heap
Publication Date - 9th August 2018
received from publisher

The Rules of Seeing follows the lives of two women whose paths cross at a time when they need each other most. Nova, an interpreter for the Metropolitan police, has been blind from birth. When she undergoes surgery to restore her sight her journey is just beginning – she now has to face a world in full colour for the first time. Kate, a successful architect and wife to Tony, is in hospital after a blow to the head. There, she meets Nova and what starts as a beautiful friendship soon turns into something more.


Ordered these from Goldsboro Books as part of the Book of the Month club so have received these signed first editions






This is the latest addition to my Alma Classics collection courtesy of their Year of Reading Classics club



Recent winner of the 2018 Walter Scott Prize for historical fiction and it has been on my radar for a while so I treated myself!



I couldn't resist the gorgeous cover this was reissued with for the Virago Modern Classics collection!



An Unbound release that has caught my eye as it just sounds so fascinating!

CURRENTLY READING

3 on the go at the mo!
