This Week in Books (05-05-2021)

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 |

A year can go quickly. Particularly when it’s your last.

Adam had a good life: a job he enjoyed, a nice house, a loving partner and a bright six-year-old daughter. Then he cheated on his partner. Then she kicked him out of their home. And then he was given approximately twelve months to live.

Despite the devastating news, Adam is determined to turn his life around before it finally runs out. Help comes in the form of an ex-junky, a cantankerous train driver, a nun experiencing a crisis of faith, and a teenager intent on losing her virginity – all living on borrowed time, all desperate to feel alive before their time is up.

[My review will be up tomorrow for the blog tour. Why yes, I left it kind of late. It helps to keep an eye on your calendar, I suppose 🙄.]

| THE BOOK I’M CURRENTLY READING |

After the gods warred and drove themselves to extinction, the cataclysm of their fall shattered the land of Vigrið.

Now a new world is rising, where power-hungry jarls feud and monsters stalk the woods and mountains. A world where the bones of the dead gods still hold great power for those brave – or desperate – enough to seek them out.

Now, as whispers of war echo across the mountains and fjords, fate follows in the footsteps of three people: a huntress on a dangerous quest, a noblewoman who has rejected privilege in pursuit of battle fame, and a thrall who seeks vengeance among the famed mercenaries known as the Bloodsworn.

All three will shape the fate of the world as it once more falls under the shadow of the gods.

[No, your eyes are not deceiving you. This is indeed fantasy. Answers to the question “what the heck is going on with Eva?” on a postcard to …]

| WHAT I’M (PROBABLY) READING NEXT |

Two strangers, Cait and Rebecca, are driving across America.

Cait’s job is to transport women to safety. Out of respect, she never asks any questions. Like most of the women, Rebecca is trying to escape something.

But what if Rebecca’s secrets put them both in danger? There’s a reason Cait chooses to keep on the road, helping strangers. She has a past of her own, and knows what it’s like to be followed.

And there is someone right behind them, watching their every move…

[This one didn’t arrive in time for the blog tour I joined and since I’m determined to clear up my review copies pile, I figured I might as well read it sooner rather than later. We will see if my fickle mood agrees when the time comes.]


What are you reading this week? Do let me know! Happy reading! xx

    I enjoyed Don’t Turn Around so I hope you do too if this is indeed your next read and you haven’t turned into a fantasy fan in the meantime. It’s a genre that just doesn’t work for me I’m afraid.
