Monthly Round Up – August 2017

Welcome to this month’s round up of the books I have read during August 2017.

I thought that I would actually read loads as it’s the Summer Holiday and I went away for 12 days, but actually I lost my reading mojo after losing my beloved Bichon Charlie and then we went on a 12 day cruise and didn’t actually have time to read much!  However I did read some absolute CRACKERS and here’s the list below:

  1.  Beneath The Surface – Sibel Hodge – A well researched and thought provoking book. Read my full review here
  2. The Academy – CC Mono – “If you love your thrillers with a smidgen of politics, lots of high tech gadgets, espionage, the obligatory bad guys and a hero with a conscience, you will LOVE this book.  READ IT NEXT” – Read my review here
  3. Dead Woman Walking  – Sharon Bolton – A brilliantly crafted cat and mouse thriller, which kept me gripped throughout and on the edge of my seat – Read my full review here
  4. Our Little Secret – Darren O’Sullivan – A gripping psychological thriller from a talented new author – one to watch out for!.  Read my full review here
  5. I Found You – Lisa Jewell – I Found You is a 5 star book full of believable characters, a gripping storyline and lots of dark secrets.  I couldn’t put this down.  Read my full review here
  6. Little Sister – Isabel Ashdown – Totally, unputdownable, gripping, thrilling, hold your breath, heart in your throat, ignore everyone around you – Read my full review here
  7. The Visitors – Catherine Burns – If you like dark and uncomfortable slow burners then this may be the book for you.  Read my full review here
