Never has a quote been so relevant to EVERY book worm around the globe (and further!). SO many books, but so little time! The same can also be said for book bloggers. We read that many books so we can share them with our audience, but we find ourselves short of time to write all our thoughts down in a comprehensive review.
This brings us nicely to ‘Mini Review Monday’. A place where, to compliment our current content, we can share with you some of our initial thoughts on books we have been reading over the last week 🙂
THE MADMAN OF BERGERAC (Maigret #16) by George Simenon
In this story Maigret is off on his holidays, till his fellow passenger piques his interest and he decides to follow him off the train… whilst it is still moving!
Unfortunately he is injured and whilst recovering he discovers there is a madman running loose and attacking women. Unable to proceed with his normal style of investigation technique, he gets his wife involved.
Who is the madman that is seemingly hiding in plain sight in the small village of Bergerac?
THE ANGEL OF DEATH (The Woman in Black #2) by Martyn Waites
Angel of Death is the sequel of The Woman In Black, which is set in the 1940s decades after the first book. This time the house is being used as a house for evacuees to escape the bombing in London.
This book was a quick read with short chapters and a fast pace. The scene was set and the story flowed without it feeling as though it was being dragged out.
Whilst I do enjoy a good ghost story but it is not very often they affect me, this one gave me chills! I will not be wanting to go on any lone visits to any old run-down houses anytime soon.
I would say definitely a story for those that enjoy being scared. Treat it like you would a good horror movie, in a dark room on your own with one lamp on to keep the shadows at bay.
SHOWMANCE (Showmance #1) by L.H. Cosway
I loved the location of this story, set involving a new West End show which the characters were involved in whicl I found gave more depth to the usual boy meets girl story.
I found the characters believable and could visualise their mannerisms as described. I also enjoyed reading about how they arefeeling and what they were thinking, which was even better as this is a dual POV book.
I think everyone should have a Damon Atwood in their lives!
Have you read any of the books above? Let us know your thoughts! 🙂
