This Week in Books (May 9)


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


In a reimagined contemporary Edinburgh, in which a tectonic fault has opened up to produce a new volcano in the Firth of Forth, and where tremors are an everyday occurrence, volcanologist Surtsey makes a shocking discovery. On a clandestine trip to The Inch – the new volcanic island – to meet Tom, her lover and her boss, she finds his lifeless body. Surtsey’s life quickly spirals into a nightmare when someone makes contact – someone who claims to know what she’s done.

The book I’m currently reading


Eleven days after the death of Anne Boleyn, Jane is dressing for her wedding to the King.

She has witnessed at first hand how courtly play can quickly turn to danger and knows she must bear a son . . . or face ruin.

This new queen must therefore step out from the shadows cast by Katherine and Anne – in doing so, can she expose a gentler side to the brutal King?

What I’m (probably) reading next


When Tina Hopgood writes a letter of regret to a man she has never met, she doesn’t expect a reply.

When Anders Larsen, a lonely museum curator, answers it, nor does he.

They’re both searching for something, they just don’t know it yet.

Anders has lost his wife, along with his hopes and dreams for the future. Tina is trapped in a marriage she doesn’t remember choosing.

Slowly their correspondence blossoms as they bare their souls to each other with stories of joy, anguish and discovery. But then Tina’s letters suddenly cease, and Anders is thrown into despair.

Can their unexpected friendship survive?


What are you reading this week? Whatever it is, I hope it brings you hours and hours of lots of happy reading! xx

      It does, doesn’t it? I really look forward to that one. Which is obviously why I squeezed in a 500+ page book first 😉

    Meet Me At The Museum sounds like such a lovely love story (friendship? I think it might be more than that ;-)). Happy reading!

    Meet Me at the Museum does sound intriguing. It puts a little bit in mind of the film 84 Charing Cross Road with Anthony Hopkins and Anne Bancroft.

    Yaaay! I’m reading Fault Lines too in a couple of books time. Looking forward to your thoughts. So jealous you’ve got the Alison Weir, I really want to read it but don’t have room for the hardback. #bookwormproblems 😂
