This Week in Books (October 18)


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.

Last book I finished reading :


When child psychologist Imogen Reid takes on the case of 11-year-old Ellie Atkinson, she refuses to listen to warnings that the girl is dangerous.

Ellie was the only survivor of a fire that killed her family. Imogen is convinced she’s just a sad and angry child struggling to cope with her loss.

But Ellie’s foster parents and teachers are starting to fear her. When she gets upset, bad things seem to happen. And as Imogen gets closer to Ellie, she may be putting herself in danger.

The book I’m currently reading :


Fresh from the palaces of Burgundy and France, Anne draws attention at the English court, embracing the play of courtly love.

But when the King commands, nothing is ever a game.

Anne has a spirit worthy of a crown – and the crown is what she seeks. At any price.

What I’m reading next :


Mia Hamilton lived the perfect life with her husband, university teacher Zach, and their two-year-old daughter, Freya. But everything changed when Zach committed suicide on the same night one of his students, Josie Carpenter, vanished.

Five years later, and Josie is still missing but Mia has finally found some happiness with new boyfriend Will.

Until one day when stranger Alison walks into her life and tells Mia that her husband didn’t kill himself.

Desperate to find out what really happened to Zach, Mia is forced to put her trust in Alison. But she soon discovers that Alison has her own agenda behind exposing the details of Zach’s death. Can Mia really believe anything Alison says?


Have you read any of these? Would you like to? What are you reading this week?

Happy reading! xx

    I’m tempted by the Six Tudor Queens – I look forward to hearing what you think of it. 🙂

      I loved the first one about Katherine. I’m a little conflicted about this one. The author seems to have tried to take a more sympathetic side with Anne and it doesn’t quite agree in my head with the Anne I’ve always heard about.

        Ah, the first ever book I read about Anne many years ago was very sympathetic, and as a result I’ve always had a major soft spot for her which even all the later less flattering (and probably more accurate) books haven’t been able to shift… 🙂

    Not ready any of them but might do when I see your reviews!! Currently reading The things we learn when we’re dead. Quite an unusual one for me but I’m enjoying it so far!
