Hoorah! We have made it to Hump Day 🙂 Time for another weekly book meme!

WWW Wednesday hosted by the lovely Sam at Taking on a World of Words

This challenge is pretty straight forward and requires only three questions answering;

  • Who is your daddy?
  • What does he do?
  • What are you currently reading?
  • What did you recently finish reading?
  • What do you think you’ll read next?

CURRENTLY READING;

Rather excited to be part of another Orenda Books blog tour! This time for the new novel by Kjell Ola Dhal; FAITHLESS.

Oslo detectives Gunnarstranda and Frølich are back and this time, it’s personal… When the body of a woman turns up in a dumpster, scalded and wrapped in plastic, Inspector Frank Frølich is shocked to discover that he knows her and their recent meetings may hold the clue to her murder.

As he ponders the tragic events surrounding her death, Frølich’s colleague Gunnarstranda investigates a disturbingly similar cold case involving the murder of a young girl in northern Norway and Frølich is forced to look into his own past to find the answers – and the killer – before he strikes again.

Cannot wait to get stuck into this and share my thoughts when I host the Blog Tour on 22nd April.

I am thrilled to be taking part in the upcoming Blog Tour for AFTER THE AFFAIR by Jonathan Kaye on 30th April.

“University Lecturer David Ryan is having an affair. And he thinks no-one knows.

He’s wrong. Someone does know. And that someone is out to blackmail him.

But when the blackmail attempt goes wrong, both Ryan and the blackmailer find themselves dragged into an underground (and decidedly seedy) world of secrets, lies and violence. A world where no-one can be trusted and everyone has something to hide.

Set in modern-day Dublin, ‘After the Affair’ is the debut psychological thriller from author Jonathan Kaye.”

I have been waiting SO long for this book to be released! Imagine my surprise when I discovered I had won an uncorrected proof copy…signed by Susan Wilkins herself! This definitely made me rather giddy!

THE KILLER is the next instalment in the series following Kaz Phelps. I highly recommend this series, but warn as with the Helen Grace series by M.J. Arlidge – these really do need to be read in order to fully understand the story, the characters and the relationships within.

I’m only about 100 pages into this book – but it’s already filled with action and drama! Looking forward to sharing my thoughts with you all.

This month is BLOG TOUR crazy! So it’s of no surprise that my next read is part of another blog tour for Orenda Books and I am stoked (that’s right…I’m a 90’s American teen!) to be part of it!

SIX STORIES by Matt Wesolowski

The novel is constructed as a series of podcasts, in which an investigative journalist describes the circumstances around the death of a teenaged boy in an outward-bound centre, interviewing witnesses, suspects and people close to the incident. Their six accounts form the six stories of the title, creating a “chilling and compelling, page-turning thriller that also delves deep into notions of truth, perception and loyalty”

Not only am I looking forward to reading this book – but I am also VERY much looking forward to the audio book which is the first Audible production to use SEVENTEEN narrators!
