I’m revamping the blog with some regular features. First up is Friday Five, which will cover five things on random topics.
Today I’m discussing five books I’ve enjoyed during October. The first two are from Carina Press.
I’ll Become the Sea is a beautifully written story about a teacher with a very interesting problem. Should she do the wrong thing to please her mother and father or do what she knows to be right? Of course there are other aspects to this story but that central dilemma was what intrigued me. I honestly don’t know what I’d do in that situation and I couldn’t pick what the heroine would do either. I love not knowing what’s going to happen in a story. I can’t wait for Rebecca Rogers Maher’s next book.
Captive Spirit grabbed me and wouldn’t let go. Liz Fichera has created a heroine to cheer for. I loved hanging out with Aiyana and could happily have read more about her. The world-building was incredibly vivid and stayed in my mind long after I’d closed the book. Add this to a satisfying romance and you have a completely enjoyable package. Very much looking forward to Liz’s next book.
Fragile by Lisa Unger. I’ve long been a fan of her books and this is another terrific read to add to my collection. The secrets of a small town are peeled away as the mystery of a missing girl is investigated. Great stuff. Thoroughly enjoyable.
I reread two books from one (make that two) of my favourite authors Nicci French. Land of the Living and Losing You are both ripper reads. Totally unputdownable.
So that’s it for the first Friday Five. I’m always looking out for new authors and new book to enjoy. What books have you been reading? Anything you can recommend?
