So, as you can see I am doing something a bit different on my blog today and yesterday! I want to post more about non- book reviews to keep it fresh and to speak to you more!!

What am I Currently Reading

The Cuckoo Wood by M.Sean Coleman is a blog tour book, and this is the synopsis

Samantha Jaynes took her life in the cold lake. Now Rosie Trimble has done the same. Both claimed they had seen an angel. And they’re not the only ones. 

A spate of teenage suicides rattles the rural community of Kirkdale, in England’s Lake District. Before they died, each of the girls talked about seeing an angel. Is this collective hallucination, or is something more sinister leading these young girls to their deaths? 

That’s a question for Dr Alex Ripley, the so-called Miracle Detective. Brought in to help the police, she finds a community rooted in fear and suspicion, bound by their strange faith, unwilling to help, unable to forgive. 

Because the people of Kirkdale have buried their dark past once, and they’re not about to let Ripley dig it up again. 

The Cuckoo Wood is the first Alex Ripley Mystery 

Domini Mortum by Paul Holbrook is being read on Pigeonhole so I am getting daily staves for this! So far its creepy and gruesome! Perfect! 

Paddington, London 1883 

Samuel Weaver is a tabloid illustrator and reporter for The Illustrated Police News, whose sensationalist style makes him both popular with the public and hated by the authorities. Obsessed with an infamous murderer, Sibelius Darke, he will let nothing get in the way of finding the truth behind the stories. 

Meanwhile another set of ghastly murders has begun, linked to Darke’s reign of terror six years earlier. 

Perhaps Darke was not the terrifying killer that he was made out to be? Perhaps the real murderers are still at large in London society? And perhaps, in order to prove this, Samuel Weaver will pay the ultimate price for his obsession.

In Bloom by C.J Skuse is my audiobook listen! This is bloody fantastic! 

If only they knew the real truth. It should be my face on those front pages. My headlines. I did those things, not him. I just want to stand on that doorstep and scream it: IT WAS ME. ME. ME. ME. ME!

Rhiannon Lewis has successfully fooled the world and framed her cheating fiancé Craig for the depraved and bloody killing spree she committed. She should be ecstatic that she’s free.

Except for one small problem. She’s pregnant with her ex-lover’s child. The ex-lover she only recently chopped up and buried in her in-laws’ garden. And as much as Rhiannon wants to continue making her way through her kill lists, a small voice inside is trying to make her stop.

But can a killer’s urges ever really be curbed?

What did I recently finish?

Sweetpea by C.J Skuse – well what a book! You can check out the review here!!

Death by the River by Alexandrea Weis and Lucas Astor – This is one creepy and messed up, with a content warning reading. Check out the review!

Christmas Spirit by Nicola May – This is a lovely cute novelle to read and my review will be live on Friday

What will I be reading next?

Three Blog tour books!

Painless by Marty Thornley

The debut psychological-horror novel from author Marty Thornley is a page-turning ride, a front row seat to a clinical trial gone horribly wrong. 

For Greg Owens, this was supposed to be a chance to end years of back pain and escape his reliance on pain pills. If it all worked out, he could maybe even get back the life he left behind as the pills took control.

Instead, as the patients are cured of their physical pain, they encounter a different sort of pain building inside them – obsessive thoughts, depression, self-destruction. The side-effects grow worse, and the suspense ratchets tighter. The patients want answers and violent revenge, setting them on a collision course with a crazed doctor, determined to protect his life’s obsession.

The Promise of Tomorrow by AnneMarie Brear

Charlotte Brookes flees her lecherous guardian, McBride, taking her younger sister with her. After a year on the road, they stumble into a Yorkshire village where the Wheelers, owners of the village shop, take them in. This new life is strange for Charlotte, but preferable to living with McBride or surviving on the roads. 
Harry Belmont is an important man in the village, but he’s missing something in his life. His budding friendship with Charlotte gives him hope she will feel more for him one day, and he will marry the woman he yearns for. 
When McBride discovers where Charlotte lives, his threats begin. Harry fights to keep Charlotte safe, but World War I erupts and Harry enlists. 
Left to face a world of new responsibilities, and Harry’s difficult sister, Charlotte must run the gauntlet of family disputes, McBride’s constant harassment, and the possibility of the man she loves being killed.

Can Charlotte find the happiness that always seems under threat, and will Harry return home to her?

Picking up the Pieces by Jo Worgan 

A compelling new novel about a mother’s love for her autistic son. Kate has a six-year-old autistic son, Sam. She has started a new life to escape her controlling and abusive boyfriend Jake and thinks that the past is behind her and that she and Sam are safe. But after spotting Jake through a misted-up cafe window, Kate knows that he has found her. Kate confides in her neighbour Matt, a man running from his own past. He seems to offer a genuine chance at happiness for her and son Sam, but Jake is determined to get them back at all costs…. Picking Up The Pieces is an original, moving but gripping page-turner about a woman’s search for happiness as she fights to protect her autistic son’s future

Hope you enjoyed this post!

Until next time xxx
