FINAL Old You blog poster 2018 copy.jpg

My Review:

The Old You by Louise Voss is a great read. Right from the start I was hooked and wanted to know what was going to happen. At first everything seemed perfectly normal, but of course, things aren’t always as they appear and this is certainly true in this case.

Lynn is blissfully happy with her life, she loves her husband Ed and she has a new job that she really likes. But when Ed receives an upsetting diagnosis, things suddenly change.

With the help of chapters showing what happened in the past, we realise that things really aren’t as they seem and that Lynn is hiding a huge secret. Who do we believe? Is Ed as innocent as he seems?

This is a twisted read that will have the reader thinking one thing but really not sure whether that is what’s going on or not. I worked a lot of it out well before it was officially revealed but that didn’t matter, and although the whole thing is slightly implausible, it still makes for a great, twisty read.

Thank you to the publisher, Orenda Books, for a copy of The Old You by Louise Voss. I was under no obligation to review the book and all thoughts are my own.

Blurb:

Nail-bitingly modern domestic noir
A tense, Hitchcockian psychological thriller
Louise Voss returns with her darkest, most chilling, novel yet…

Lynn Naismith gave up the job she loved when she married Ed, the love of her life, but it was worth it for the happy years they enjoyed together. Now, ten years on, Ed has been diagnosed with early-onset dementia, and things start to happen; things more sinister than missing keys and lost words. As some memories are forgotten, others, long buried, begin to surface… and Lynn’s perfect world begins to crumble.
But is it Ed s mind playing tricks, or hers…?

blog tours, book extract

#BlogTour #extract Guilt by Amanda Robson @Amandarauthor @AvonBooksUK @Sabah_k #book

Banner Guilt.png

How stunning is the cover for Guilt by Amanda Robson?!!! You certainly wouldn’t miss it in a bookshop. I love it and it immediately appealed to me, and then I saw that the book is about twins and as a mother of twins I like reading books with twins in it, so I jumped at the chance to be part of the blog tour. I just didn’t have time to read the book before today to do a review, but it is definitely on my tbr pile. In the meantime here’s an extract to help whet your appetite before you read the book yourself!

Extract:

Driving up the motorway, escaping from Bristol, back to Tidebury for the weekend. Maybe seeing Mother will help.

  I hate Anastasia Sudbury.

  Second written warning indeed.

One more written warning and I am out. How dare she. Patronising, sycophantic bitch. The memory of her voice, with its overemphasised vowels and artificial resonance as she ‘mediated’ between me and Sebastian makes me feel sick. Second written warning for not working efficiently with him. I clutch the steering wheel so tightly my fingers ache.

I turn the car radio up in an attempt to drown my thoughts in classical music. But my mind is pumping. Plaintive violins and resonant cellos don’t help. I cannot stop thinking about Sebastian and what he did to me. I feel his hands all over me. I feel him entering me again. I hear his grunting climax. I feel a knife grating the walls of my vaginal passage. As I drive I breathe through the pain.

I stop at a service station and sit in the car, head in hands.

Back on the motorway, I know I need to pull myself together. It isn’t safe, even in the slow lane, wedged between heavy lorries, driving when my mind is a kaleidoscope of hate, guilt and pain.

Classical music. Perhaps that will help. Four hours of listening to Classic FM later, at half past midnight I finally arrive home.

Mother opens the door. She hugs and kisses me. I step into the hallway. I see our patterned rug, the parquet flooring, the limited edition print that you chose when we were on holiday in the Lake District, so many years ago.

guiltbookThe shocking new thriller from the #1 bestseller

‘Thrilling, unputdownable, a fabulous rollercoaster of a read’ B A PARIS, bestselling author of BEHIND CLOSED DOORS

The number 1 bestseller is back!

Your sister. Her secret. The betrayal.

 There is no bond greater than blood . . .

When the body of a woman is found stabbed to death, the blame falls to her twin sister. But who killed who? And which one is now the woman behind bars?

Zara and Miranda have always supported each other. But then Zara meets Seb, and everything changes. Handsome, charismatic and dangerous, Seb threatens to tear the sisters’ lives apart – but is he really the one to blame? Or are deeper resentments simmering beneath the surface that the sisters must face up to?

As the sisters’ relationship is stretched to the brink, a traumatic incident in Seb’s past begins to rear its head and soon all three are locked in a psychological battle that will leave someone dead. The question is, who?

Claustrophobic and compelling, Amanda Robson is back in a knock-out thriller perfect for fans of B.A. Paris and Paula Hawkins.

#BlogTour #BookReview Sarah’s Shadow by @nickjonesauthor and Go To Sleep by Marion Adams @Marion_author @kidsbooks @rararesources

Full Media Full Banner

How exciting, not one but two great children’s books!!

 

Front cover - new size
Sarah’s Shadow by Nick Jones.

 

My Review:

 

Like most parents, I like a kids book with a message, a book that will teach them something without them even realising. Sarah’s Shadow by Nick Jones is just such a book.

Sarah is unhappy because she is being teased at school, so she makes a wish on a shooting star to remove the thing about herself that is getting teased…her shadow. She goes to sleep excited about the next day, but when it comes the reality of life without her shadow isn’t what Sarah expected.

Of course, it all ends well but in the process, Sarah has learnt an important message about being happy with herself as she is.

I really liked this book, it’s well written and I love the illustrations by Si Clark. I’m sure that this book will go down really well with children under the age of six, although I think that children over that age would really enjoy the book, the picture book format would be a turn off for them. Or it certainly would be for my children! Perhaps the author could write a slightly longer version for older children, I would definitely get that for my seven year olds!

This would be a great book for all children, especially those who are perhaps unhappy with something about themselves, or someone who could do with being kinder to others.

Thank you to the publisher, Full Media Ltd, for a copy of Sarah’s Shadow by Nick Jones. I was under no obligation to review the book and all thoughts are my own.

 

Blurb:

If you could change something about yourself, would you do it? When Sarah Simpkins is teased about her shadow in the school playground, she finds herself wishing she didn’t have one. That night she has the chance to make the wish come true. But will losing her shadow really make her happy?

About the Author:

Go to Sleep - From Amazon

My Review:

As a parent of seven year old twins, I’m still not sure what children have against sleep. I love to sleep and I wish that they did too! One day I will enjoy waking them up very early in the morning but for now, the trick to getting your reluctant child to sleep remains a mystery.

Go To Sleep by Marion Adams tells the story of Tansy the sheep, a typical lamb or finds it hard to fall asleep. With the rest of her flock sleeping Tansy takes the advice of a passing owl that counting sheep will help her to fall asleep. But all doesn’t go to plan and Tansy gets very worried and ends up waking the flock. I’m sure that all parents will identify with the end of Go To Sleep!!

Overall this is a lovely book. The illustrations by Sarah-Leigh Wills are great and it is a sweet little story that will be enjoyed by under fives.

Thank you to the publisher, Full Media Ltd, for a copy of Go To Sleep by Marion Adams. I was under no obligation to review the book and all thoughts are my own.

Blurb:

Tansy the sheep can’t go to sleep. She’s forgotten how to do it! But when she follows the barn owl’s advice and starts counting sheep, she realises that something is wrong … The award-winning bedtime story with a humorous twist that children will love!

#BlogTour #BookReview Dying Truth by Angela Marsons. @WriteAngie @Bookouture #DyingTruth #KimStone #brilliantread

dyingtruthblog

I am so very, very, excited about Dying Truth by Angela Marsons. If you’ve read my little blog before then you will probably know that Angela Marsons and her DI Kim Stone books are my most favourite series. I will warn you though, if you are reading reviews for Dying Truth then please be careful and make sure that it is a review that gives away no spoilers. I never give spoilers in my reviews so you’re safe here, but do be careful as you absolutely and most definitely do not want to ruin the surprise! Please don’t post any spoilers in comments on here too please, although I’d love to hear what you thought please don’t ruin it for others.

My Review:

Woah!!! I adore the DI Kim Stone books, I’ve read and loved each of them and eagerly wait for a new one to be released.

The fact that this is book eight of the Kim Stone series and is not only going strong but getting better and better is impressive and shows that this series is something special. It is hard for an author to keep a character going for so long and keep the readers engaged and wanting more. Angela Marsons has sold millions of books and if you read one or two of them then you will see why.

Anyway, back to Dying Truth. Once again Kim’s instincts are correct, something is going on at a very exclusive boarding school where a student supposedly jumped to her death. Kim and her team of reliable detectives who all play an important part in working together to solve the crimes.

Fans of the series will be excited to hear that Dr Alex Thorne makes a guest appearance in Dying Truth, this is the third book in the series that she has appeared in and once again she makes a big impression.

The one thing that I will remember Dying Truth for is the completely unexpected curve ball thrown at the reader, something that you will not see coming and something that will shock you. I will say no more but I think that there may need to be some support groups set up for readers to help them cope with this book.

It is a fabulous book and I have so much respect for Angela Marsons. She’s one hell of a writer and this really is an amazing series. If you haven’t read any of the Kim Stone books before then you really really should, but do start at the beginning with Silent Scream, although I’m sure that you could read Dying Truth as a standalone you really would be missing out if you don’t start at the beginning. And if you have read the previous seven then bump Dying Truth to the top of your reading pile and enjoy!

Thank you to Bookouture for my copy of Dying Truth by Angela Marsons. I was under no obligation to review the book and all thoughts are my own.

Blurb:

dyingtruthHow far would you go to protect your darkest secrets?

When teenager Sadie Winter jumps from the roof of her school, her death is ruled as suicide – a final devastating act from a troubled girl. But then the broken body of a young boy is discovered at the same school and it’s clear to Detective Kim Stone that these deaths are not tragic accidents.

As Kim and her team begin to unravel a dark web of secrets, one of the teachers could hold the key to the truth. Yet just as she is about to break her silence, she is found dead. 

With more children’s lives at risk, Kim has to consider the unthinkable – whether a fellow pupil could be responsible for the murders. Investigating the psychology of children that kill brings the detective into contact with her former adversary, Dr Alex Thorne – the sociopath who has made it her life’s work to destroy Kim. 

Desperate to catch the killer, Kim finds a link between the recent murders and an initiation prank that happened at the school decades earlier. But saving these innocent lives comes at a cost – and one of Kim’s own might pay the ultimate price.

The utterly addictive new crime thriller from the Number One bestselling author – you will be gripped until the final shocking twist.

#BlogTour #BookReview Game Players by Anita Waller. @anitamayw @Bloodhoundbook #GamePlayers #bookblogger

B L O G B L I T Z

I’m really excited to be one of the bloggers kicking off the blog tour for Game Players by Anita Waller. Regular readers will know how much I like the author and this book has to be one of her best.

My Review:

I really like Anita Waller, when I read 34 Days I absolutely loved it and have been a fan of the author ever since, and she’s definitely got a place in my top author’s list.

There was a lot that I loved about Game Players, it grabbed me right from the start and I loved the ‘gang of six’, a group of children who find themselves caught up in a world that they don’t belong. They make a decision, all agreeing by vote, but are totally unaware of the fatal consequences of that vote.

As a reader I couldn’t help but root for the gang, and also feel slightly envious of them as I’d of loved to have friends like that when I was growing up! I loved how Waller made each child an individual, but together they were such a team and a real force to be reckoned with.

The book is told from various points of view and I have to say that I enjoyed reading all of them which is unusual as often there’s at least one that you don’t enjoy reading about so much. The police officer who knew that something was going on but had no idea what. The criminal with a conscience. The imperfect parent trying to do their best. They all added to the story and made it a compelling read that I just didn’t want to put down.

Game Players was one of those books that I desperately wanted to keep reading to find out what was going to happen, but when I did I was really sad that it was over and that I would have to leave that gang of six behind.

Thanks for a great read Anita Waller! When is the next one out??

Thank you to Bloodhound Books for a copy of Game Players by Anita Waller, I was under no obligation to review the book and all thoughts are my own.

Blurb:

GAME PLAYERSWhen a gang of six children playing in their den in the woods spot a man burying drugs nearby, it marks the beginning of the end of their childhoods

Unsure what to do, the children dig up the drugs and take them away. But when the dealer, who they watched bury the stash, shows up dead, the youngsters are thrown into turmoil.

Scared of what might happen, the children tell the police about the body they have discovered.

Meanwhile, a group of gangsters start searching for their missing drugs.

Soon the children and their families become the target of the vicious criminals who will stop at nothing to retrieve their narcotics…

About the Author:

anitawallerAnita Waller was born in Sheffield, South Yorkshire in 1946. She married Dave in 1967 and they have three adult children.

She began writing when she was around 8 years of age, writing ‘compositions’ at junior school that became books with chapters.

In 1995 she sent Beautiful to a publisher and as they reached the contract stage the publisher went into liquidation. As a result, the book was consigned to the attic in dejected disgust but in 2013 it was dragged out again for an enforced complete re-type. The original was written on an Amstrad 8256 and the only thing that remained was one hard copy.

Anita is not a typist and it was painfully reworked over two years, submitted to Bloodhound Books who, within three days of reading it, offered her a contract. 31 August 2015 saw its release into the wide world.

Following the outstanding success of Beautiful, she began a sequel on 27 December 2015, finishing it on 19 March 2016. The new novel, Angel, was launched on 7 May 2016.

34 Days followed, with its launch in October 2016. This was a huge success, particularly in the United States. While this, her third book in the psychological thriller genre, was flying out in all directions, she began work on her fourth book.

Winterscroft was a change in genre. It is a supernatural tale, set in Castleton, Derbyshire, and its release date was February 2017.

While she was writing Winterscroft, it became very clear from reading reviews that a sequel to 34 days was needed, and she began work on that. Bloodhound Books launched Strategy, on 10 August 2017.

Her next book, launched February 2018 and entitled Captor, is a psychological thriller, set exclusively in Sheffield. It was an instant success, both in the UK and the US.

The along came Game Players… once more set in Sheffield, the story involves a group of six children who have each other’s backs to a remarkable extent. The darker, criminal side of Sheffield is explored, and the book launch is 18 May 2018.

In her life away from the computer in the corner of her kitchen, she is a Sheffield Wednesday supporter with blue blood in her veins! The club was particularly helpful during the writing of 34 Days, as a couple of matches feature in the novel, along with Ross Wallace. Information was needed, and they provided it.

Her genre is murder – necessary murder.

#BlogTour #BookReview #giveaway London Hat Hunting Mission by Winnie Mak Tselikas @rararesources @onedearworld #competition #KidsBooks #diversity @InclusiveMinds

London Hat Hunting Mission Full Tour Banner

My Review:

London Hat Hunting Mission by Winnie Mak Tselikas is a lovely little book. The reader gets taken on a tour of London with four dolls as they try to find as many hats as they can to help Mr Globe to feel better.

I’m not quite sure how a hat would help Mr Globe feel better but this is a great book that celebrates diversity and shows just how diverse London really is. The dolls visit a number of sites, from Buckingham Palace to Brick Lane, with simple photos with the dolls superimposed in.

I think that London Hat Hunting Mission would be a great addition to any young kids bookshelf and I think that it would be best aimed at under 5s. It’s not only a lovely read but it’s also a great way to introduce diversity and help your child to understand how one city contains so many different people from different places.

Review by Dora aged seven and a half:

London Hat Hunting Mission is just amazing. I think that it’s very good for under four year olds. I think that it is very good because young children will like it a lot but older children over ten probably won’t like it but all the children under ten should like it a bit. I like that it has all the different stops of London, I like that it has Buckingham Palace, St Paul’s Cathedral and Big Ben. I like that it is about the world and kind of about friendship. I like how all the stops are very different. It’s very, very, very good and I think that under sevens would like it. I like the different kinds of dolls because they are all different. I give it five out of five.

Review by Jake aged seven and a half:

I don’t think that this book is good for children under five, but older children won’t so much. I think that the younger children will like it because it has dolls in. In the book, it has how you say thank you in some different languages, I liked trying to say the words and we asked Alexa how to say thank you in a few of the languages that we weren’t sure how to say and that was fun. For me, I would give it a two out of five but if I was younger then I would enjoy it more.

Blurb:

londonhathuntingFour little Londoners, Hope, Jun, Lea and Parth, come from a different cultural background, are good friends living in London. They are travelling to the iconic places around the city in search of magic hats to cure Mr Globe’s headache.

 The book is illustrated with a mix of real life photographs of iconic places in London and digital illustration so children can have a vivid visual experience of London and at the same time open up their world of imagination.

#BlogTour #BookReview The Fear by C.L. Taylor. @callytaylor @AvonBooksUK @Sabah_K #TheFear

The Fear - Blog Tour Banner - Part 3

My Review:

I immediately wanted to read The Fear by C.L. Taylor. Who could resist the cover for a start? But I was also attracted by the author.

I really enjoyed reading The Fear, the storyline sucked me right in and I desperately wanted to know what was going to happen and how Lou was going to stop Mike from ruining another teenagers life.

Although at times slightly unbelievable, the book was definitely a thrilling read. The author had captured how grooming takes place and I couldn’t help but think of my daughter at times when reading and how on earth I could protect her from something so determined and manipulative. The book also gives a good demonstration of how child abuse can impact the child’s life for many years to come.

Some other reviews talk about how things are mentioned in the book that didn’t exist in the year the book was set. Normally I have a radar for such things but I can honestly say that I don’t remember picking up on that at all, and the only explanation that I have for that is that I was so engrossed in the story that it passed me by.

The Fear is a clever book with plenty of twists and turns, while not always easy to read due to the subject matter it was still a great read and one that I’d highly recommend.

Thanks for Avon Books for a copy of The Fear by C.L. Taylor, I was under no obligation to review the book and all thoughts are my own.
