This Week In Books (May 27)

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 |

Immi thought she had found the perfect new home in central London: a shared warehouse with luxury accommodation, a rooftop terrace and daily yoga, all with a surprisingly affordable price tag. The Dye Factory is a ‘co-living’ community, designed to combat the loneliness of big city life.

But soon after she moves into her new haven, Immi realises that it’s not quite as idyllic as it appears. No one seems to know who is behind this multi-million pound urban experiment. And her housemates may be hiding a dangerous secret . . .

Then, as a series of pranks escalates into something much darker, Immi is left questioning whether, in this group of strangers, she can ever really be safe.

And when you’re sharing a house, you can’t always lock the danger out. 

[Thoroughly enjoyed this one. Review coming soon.]

| THE BOOK I’M CURRENTLY READING |

Fran hates Ash Mountain, and she thought she’d escaped. But her father is ill, and needs care. Her relationship is over, and she hates her dead-end job in the city, anyway.

She returns to her hometown to nurse her dying father, her distant teenage daughter in tow for the weekends. There, in the sleepy town of Ash Mountain, childhood memories prick at her fragile self-esteem, she falls in love for the first time, and her demanding dad tests her patience, all in the unbearable heat of an Australian summer.

As old friendships and rivalries are renewed, and new ones forged, Fran’s tumultuous home life is the least of her worries, when old crimes rear their heads and a devastating bushfire ravages the town and all of its inhabitants.

[Bajillionth attempt to read this one but I’m determined to finish it today! It’s not the book, it’s me.]

| WHAT I’M (PROBABLY) READING NEXT |

Thirty years ago, Vincent King became a killer.

Now, he’s been released from prison and is back in his hometown of Cape Haven, California. Not everyone is pleased to see him. Like Star Radley, his ex-girlfriend, and sister of the girl he killed.

Duchess Radley, Star’s thirteen-year-old daughter, is part-carer, part-protector to her younger brother, Robin – and to her deeply troubled mother. But in trying to protect Star, Duchess inadvertently sets off a chain of events that will have tragic consequences not only for her family, but also the whole town.

Murder, revenge, retribution.
How far can we run from the past when the past seems doomed to repeat itself?

[I’ve been waiting for this for what feels like an eternity and now that my copy has finally arrived, I can’t wait to get stuck in.]

Have you read any of these? Would you like to?

What are you reading this week? Do let me know! I’m always looking for suggestions. Happy reading! xx

    I’m happy you enjoyed The House Share so much! Have you read Riley Sager’s novel Lock Every Door? Probably ;-).I liked the mystery in that one a little bit more, although I was completely surprised with the ending of The House Share too!

      You’ll be surprised to hear that no, I haven’t yet read Lock Every Door because the hardback was (is?) ridiculously expensive. But I hope to. At some point. 😂

        Haha I’ve added it to my priority TBR pile if that helps? Still no guarantee I will actually be able to get to it soon though. xD
