Here is what happened on Book Journey this past week:
Love In A Nutshell by Janet Evanovich (audio review)
The 19th Wife by David Ebershoff (A FANTASTIC book discussion with my book club!)
2108 Eyes Open by K L Glanville with a signed copy for giveaway!
Still Missing by Chevy Stevens (Oh my word people! You have to read or listen to this one SOON!)
So another good week! I think that is two in a row!
Now for this week I am not adding any books to my plate BECAUSE I have a few I want to finish this week that have been on past weeks lists but I never made it to them. So instead of adding more, and with the Dewey Read A Thom coming on the 21st, I have decided to work this week on finishing up those books.
I am however adding audio books as I have finished two over the weekend and a third will finish this week…. so here is whats up in audio:
Grace Winter, 22, is both a newlywed and a widow. She is also on trial for her life.
In the summer of 1914, the elegant ocean liner carrying her and her husband Henry across the Atlantic suffers a mysterious explosion. Setting aside his own safety, Henry secures Grace a place in a lifeboat, which the survivors quickly realize is over capacity. For any to live, some must die.
As the castaways battle the elements, and each other, Grace recollects the unorthodox way she and Henry met, and the new life of privilege she thought she’d found. Will she pay any price to keep it?
The Lifeboat is a page-turning novel of hard choices and survival, narrated by a woman as unforgettable and complex as the events she describes.
I think it is my Titanic mood that brought this one on. I seen it on a couple blogs this past week and it really interested me.
Internationally acclaimed crime writer Jo Nesbø’s antihero police investigator, Harry Hole, is back: in a bone-chilling thriller that will take Hole to the brink of insanity.
Oslo in November. The first snow of the season has fallen. A boy named Jonas wakes in the night to find his mother gone. Out his window, in the cold moonlight, he sees the snowman that inexplicably appeared in the yard earlier in the day. Around its neck is his mother’s pink scarf.
Hole suspects a link between a menacing letter he’s received and the disappearance of Jonas’s mother—and of perhaps a dozen other women, all of whom went missing on the day of a first snowfall. As his investigation deepens, something else emerges: he is becoming a pawn in an increasingly terrifying game whose rules are devised—and constantly revised—by the killer.
Fiercely suspenseful, its characters brilliantly realized, its atmosphere permeated with evil, The Snowman is the electrifying work of one of the best crime writers of our time.
OOH right? Ok Nesbo, I have heard the positive rumblings… lets see what you got!
There will be a third audio starting but honestly… I dont have a third audio in the house. Yup, after Home Front ends in the car I have no more CD audios and am going to need one fast! Suggestions? 😉
