For all those who were waiting with baited breath to see if anything grew in my new little garden, you’ll be VERY excited to find out that it did! There are flowers everywhere and I water them with a constant panicked watchful eye. More pics below.
Secondly, The House We Called Home, my brand-new summer book has gone into the great Kindle Summer sale and is currently a bargainous 99p. You don’t even have to wait you’re on holiday to read it seeing as we’re living one long hot summer right now. Download, enjoy and be sure to let me know what you think!
Almost as exciting, loads of my other books are also currently 99p, so you can have a Jenny Oliver bingefest, if you so desire. It’s too hot to be inside watching TV anyway, much better to be sitting outside with a book 😉
Here’s how the garden’s looking…
The sun is shining. The birds aren’t singing, as far as I can tell. The aeroplanes are flying overhead. It’s officially summer. And to celebrate, The Summerhouse by the Sea is only 99p! Wow, what a bargain.
Download a copy, pretend you’re working and secretly have a read on your phone/ computer/ Kindle 😉 Enjoy the sunshine x
I’m having a bit of a #griplit moment. Storming through Paula Hawkins’ Girl on the Train, Maestra by L.S. Hilton, Missing, Presumed by Susie Steiner, Behind Closed Doors by BA Paris and Disclaimer by Renee Knight.
With books like this I can’t seem to pause when reading, I just have to know exactly what happened and who did it. My life gets put on hold as I turn pages faster than any other reading. I stay up way too late then get scared when I do finally go to bed because I’m in the suspense mindset.
I find myself mistrustful of all my friends and family if I see them too quickly after putting the book down. Then I get so involved that I start skimming (very bad!) and then have to go back because I’ve missed crucial plot points. I am a very impatient #griplit reader!
In contrast I’ve also just finished Jilly Cooper’s The Common Years which I loved so much that I stopped reading it three quarters of the way through because I didn’t want it to end.
Funny isn’t it? What different genres can do.
Now I need a new book, though, because I read all the psychological suspense so quickly. Any suggestions?
