This Week In Books (April 22)

This Week In Books

Hosted by Lypsyy Lost & Found my Wednesday post gives you a taste of what I am reading this week. A similar meme is run by Taking on a World of Words

I am currently reading Don’t Turn Around by Caroline Mitchell

Don't Turn Around

You can read the blurb and opening paragraph in yesterday’s post.

I have recently finished When We Were Friends by Tina Seskis

When We Were Friends

Blurb

It had always been the six of us.
Since we met at university twenty-five years ago, we’d faced everything together. Break-ups and marriages, motherhood and death. We were closer than sisters; the edges of our lives bled into each other.
But that was before the night of the reunion. The night of exposed secrets and jagged accusations. The night when everything changed.
And then we were five. NetGalley

My review will follow soon

Next I am going to read The Faerie Tree by Jane Cable

The Faerie Tree

Blurb

How can a memory so vivid be wrong?
I tried to remember the first time I’d been here and to see the tree through Izzie’s eyes. The oak stood on a rise just above the path; not too tall or wide but graceful and straight, its trunk covered in what I can only describe as offerings – pieces of ribbon, daisy chains, a shell necklace, a tiny doll or two and even an old cuckoo clock.
“Why do people do this?” Izzie asked.
I winked at her. “To say thank you to the fairies.”

In the summer of 1986 Robin and Izzie hold hands under The Faerie Tree and wish for a future together. Within hours tragedy rips their dreams apart.
In the winter of 2006, each carrying their own burden of grief, they stumble back into each other’s lives and try to create a second chance. But why are their memories of 1986 so different? And which one of them is right? NetGalley

  1. These books do look tempting, Cleo. I like that premise of past memories and events coming back to haunt in both the Cable and the Seskis. It’s amazing to me how our memories can play tricks on us – or others…
