The Fall of Lisa Bellow by Susan Perabo – Yes, I’m still reading this. I’m not really sure I like it at the moment. It’s not exactly what I was expecting it to be.


 

Books finished this week:

This probably looks like a lot, for me, but they’re all shorts.

Nightmare Man by Alan Ryker was super creepy! At only 77 pages long, this was a superbly done horror story. My review will be up soon.

The Grownup by Gillian Flynn was fun! A short 100 pages story, filled with humour and mystery. Again, my review will be up soon.

Lost in My World by Rob Powell was free and only 10 pages long.


Books I’m planning on reading next:

Sometimes I Lie by Alice Feeney – I might just start this now tbh, I feel like it’s going to be more enjoyable than my current read… but I’ve put so many books down as DNF this year already so I don’t want to put Perabo’s book down just yet… ugh…


Books bought this week:

Hardback:

I saw that Uzumaki by Junji Ito was down 40% since I had placed it in my wishilst on Amazon, so I treated myself on payday. This version is 3-in-1, so you get all 3 books of the series, in one giant book. I’ve started reading this (I was amazed at how naturally I got into reading backwards) and because of my goddamn bullshit “trypophobia” thing, the spirals were making me feel so sick on the train that I got really dizzy and panicky and had to stop reading and listen to some Ludovico Einaudi to calm me down.

I hadn’t realised I’d bought The Twenty Days of Turin by Giorgio De Maria in hardback until I just went and checked my email confirmation, so now I’m even more excited to read it! Since finding out about this books a week, or so, ago, I couldn’t get it out of my head so I bought it, hehe.

Paperback:

25480342

A Monster Calls by Patrick Ness is currently 50% on Amazon UK, at only £3.99, so I knew I had to pick this one up. I know it’s YA and all I seem to do is complain about YA, but I’ve been wanting to read this for ages, just to see how I get on with it.

Kindle books:

Woohoo, the beginning of the month means we get our new Kindle First book! Out of the choices for March, I picked The Halo Effect by Anne D. LeClaire. This was classed as suspense and was the only one I had any interest in for this month.

Patricia Cornwell thinks she knows who Jack the Ripper is… of course I had to buy Ripper: The Secret Life of Walter Sickert! I can’t wait to hear all her theories.

After doing my weekly declutter, I reminded myself of The Grownup by Gillian Flynn, so I looked on Amazon to buy it, and at £1.99, I knew I had to buy it.

    1. The thing is, I do give up too easily! But when I get to a book I’m not really feeling, I get in a reading slump!
      Eh, idk what I’m going to do with it… I’ll give it a couple more days and then decide 😛
