This Week In Books (June 3)

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 Dancing for the Hangman by Martin Edwards, the first read in my 20 Books of Summer 2015 Challenge

Dancing for the Hangman

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

I have just finished The Other Me by Saskia Sarginson, one of those books that I will remember for some time.

The Other Me


Eliza Bennet has the life she’s always dreamed of. She’s who she wants to be, and she’s with the man she loves.
But Eliza is living a lie. Her real name is Klaudia Myer. And Klaudia is on the run. She’s escaping her old life, and a terrible secret buried at the heart of her family.
This is the story of Eliza and Klaudia – one girl, two lives and a lie they cannot hide from. NetGalley

My review will follow shortly

My next read is going to be The Readers of Broken Wheel Recommend by Katarina Bivald

The Readers of Broken Wheel Recommend


Warning: once you let books into your life, the most unexpected things can happen…
Sara is 28 and has never been outside Sweden – except in the (many) books she reads. When her elderly penfriend Amy invites her to come and visit her in Broken Wheel, Iowa, Sara decides it’s time. But when she arrives, there’s a twist waiting for her – Amy has died. Finding herself utterly alone in a dead woman’s house in the middle of nowhere was not the holiday Sara had in mind.
But Sara discovers she is not exactly alone. For here in this town so broken it’s almost beyond repair are all the people she’s come to know through Amy’s letters: poor George, fierce Grace, buttoned-up Caroline and Amy’s guarded nephew Tom.
Sara quickly realises that Broken Wheel is in desperate need of some adventure, a dose of self-help and perhaps a little romance, too. In short, this is a town in need of a bookshop. NetGalley

  1. Have you mentioned The Other Me before? It sounds familiar and good. I also am very interested in The Readers of Broken Wheel Recommend. What a fun sounding book? And what town doesn’t need a bookshop? Every town needs one. 🙂


    1. Yes, I did mention it last week when it was my ‘next’ read – I didn’t get through my list as quickly as normal 😦 I’m looking forward to The Readers… and have high hopes for this one.


  2. The Bivald sounds really interesting, Cleo – a great premise. And of course, as you know, I’m a fan of both Edwards and that particular book. So I’m glad you’ve had the chance to read it. And I do look forward to your review of the Sarginson. Again, a really interesting concept for a novel…


  3. By coincidence I’ve just this minute finished reading a review of The Readers of Broken Wheel Recommend – a rave review, you’ll be glad to hear. A good bunch this week, I look forward to your reviews… 🙂
