My Top 8 Books of 2020 so far

According to Goodreads I have already read 53 books this year and it’s only part way through June. But here is a list of my favourite eight books so far. I have tried to include a number of first time authors as well as established authors. They are in no particular order: Dreamland by Nancy Bilyeau I just loved this book. It’s 1911 and … Read More My Top 8 Books of 2020 so far

Precious You by Helen Monks Takhar

‘Trusting you was my first mistake.’ To Katherine, twenty-four-year-old Lily Lunt is a typical ‘snowflake’. Soft, entitled, unflaggingly earnest, the privileged, politically correct millennial will do whatever she can to make it big as a writer, including leveraging her family’s connections. She’s got it easy. To Lily, Katherine Ross, a career woman in her early forties, is a holdover from another era: clueless, old-fashioned, … Read More Precious You by Helen Monks Takhar

Happy Ever After by C.C. MacDonald

I feel so mixed about this book even though towards the end I couldn’t wait to find out what happened. The problem for me is that both main protagonists are unlikable. Bit like Gone Girl. Charlie is a total prat but I couldn’t help but feel a bit sorry for him when Naomi was upset because they couldn’t afford the 5-bedroom house by the … Read More Happy Ever After by C.C. MacDonald

In The Dark by Cara Hunter

Another brilliant book from Cara Hunter. I started this book the night before last but then I had a day off work and I literally just sat at home and read to the end. So intricately put together and I love the way the detectives and PCs are growing in character. After a while you start to question everyone and everything. Who is lying? … Read More In The Dark by Cara Hunter

Snakes and Ladders by Victoria Selman

I really enjoyed reading this. A bit Silence of the Lambs meets Dan Brown and I particularly like the codes and clues aspect. Dr Sange is an interesting character as you don’t expect a serial killer to be so handsome and charismatic (unless it’s Keanu Reeves in The Watcher – though maybe not charismatic). I’m not sure Ziba would be my first choice of … Read More Snakes and Ladders by Victoria Selman
