This Week in Books (April 19)


Hosted by Lipsy Lost and Found, my Wednesday post gives you a taste of what I’m reading this week. A similar meme is run by Taking on a World of Words.

If you read my twitter over the Easter weekend, then you may have seen that I have some family stuff going on and my reading has taken somewhat of a backseat since it’s quite hard to concentrate on anything. On Saturday, I got word that my mother is in hospital and things are not looking good. There’s no way of knowing what the next few days will bring so my Wednesday update is probably subject to change. I just wanted to put this out there in case I disappear for a bit or am a tad antisocial.

Anyway, onwards with today’s post.

Last book I finished reading :


Falkenberg, Sweden. The mutilated body of a young jewellery designer, Linnea Blix, is found in a snow-swept marina.

Hampstead Heath, London. The body of a young boy is discovered with similar wounds to Linnea’s.

Buchenwald Concentration Camp, 1944. In the midst of the hell of the Holocaust, Erich Hebner will do anything to see himself as human again.

Are the two murders the work of a serial killer, and how are they connected to shocking events at Buchenwald?

The book I’m currently reading :


How do you catch a killer who leaves no trace?

A victim killed with a single, precise stab to the heart appears at first glance to be a robbery gone wrong. A caring, upstanding social worker lost to a senseless act of violence. But for Detective Kim Stone, something doesn’t add up.

When a local drug addict is found murdered with an identical wound, Kim knows instinctively that she is dealing with the same killer. But with nothing to link the two victims except the cold, calculated nature of their death, this could be her most difficult case yet.

What I’m reading next :


Two sisters and one betrayal that will carry across generations.

In wartime Cornwall, 1943, a story between two sisters begins – the story of Adele and Amelia, and the heartbreaking betrayal that will divide them forever. Decades later, the efforts of one reckless act still echo – but how long will it be until their past returns?

What will you be reading this week?

    I’ll be reading Block 46 very soon, both in English and in French, which should be fun. I’m keeping Angela Marsons for a special Bookouture time 🙂
