For Review


I can’t resist a carnival story, so I was pretty much sold on this by the cover and title alone. It’s had some mixed reviews, but I’m looking forward to getting stuck in and seeing what it’s all about.


I always attempt to read at least one Man Booker Prize nominee, and this is the only one I’ve seen on NetGalley so far that appealed. It looks like a dark, psychological tale, different to anything else I’ve read lately.


Jodi Picoult has long been one of my favourite authors, she’s got a knack for exploring controversial issues in a way which has me glued to the pages and often an emotional wreck by the end. Her latest novel explores racial prejudice and isn’t due for release until October, but I had to press request as soon as I spotted it.


Claire Douglas’s hit debut, The Sisters, somehow passed me by last year but I love a good psychological thriller so I’m looking forward to getting acquainted with this author with her second novel.

What have you added to your shelves this week? And what would you recommend from the above? Let me know! 🙂

    I like the cover for Local Girl Missing and by the title alone, it sounds very interesting! I hope you enjoy your new books!
