Last book I finished reading
This is a love story. Mike’s love story.
Mike Hayes fought his way out of a brutal childhood and into a quiet, if lonely life, before he met Verity Metcalf. V taught him about love, and in return, Mike has dedicated his life to making her happy. He’s found the perfect home, the perfect job, he’s sculpted himself into the physical ideal V has always wanted. He knows they’ll be blissfully happy together.
It doesn’t matter that she hasn’t been returning his emails or phone calls.
It doesn’t matter that she says she’s marrying Angus.
It’s all just part of the secret game they used to play. If Mike watches V closely, he’ll see the signs. If he keeps track of her every move he’ll know just when to come to her rescue.
The book I’m currently reading
What would you do if the love of your life had no memory of you?
The 19th of January, 1996 . . . I’ll never forget it. It was the day we met. I was seven and she was six. It was the day she moved in next door, and the same day I developed my first crush on a girl.
Then tragedy struck. Nineteen days after our wedding day, Jemma was in an accident that would change our lives forever. When she woke from her coma, she had no memory of me, of us, of the love we shared.
That’s when I started writing her letters. The stories of our life. Of when we met. About the happier times, and everything we’d experienced together.
What we had was far too beautiful to be forgotten.
What I’m (definitely) reading next
You can’t choose your family. Or can you?
Meet the Bensons. A pleasant enough couple. They keep themselves to themselves. They wash their car, mow their lawn and pass the time of day with their neighbours. And they have a beautiful little girl called Daisy.
There’s just one problem. Daisy doesn’t belong to the Bensons. They stole her.
And now they’ve decided that Daisy needs a little brother or sister.
D. S. Nathan Cody is about to face his darkest and most terrifying case yet.
I’m way behind on my reading so I’m not around as much as I normally am. Hopefully regular service will resume soon.
