This Week in Books (February 24)

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 The Last Thing I Remember by Deborah Bee which will be published on 3 March 2016.

The Last thing I remember


Sarah is in a coma.
Her memory is gone – she doesn’t know how she got there. And she doesn’t know how she might get out.
But then she discovers that her injury wasn’t an accident. And that the assailant hasn’t been caught.
Unable to speak, see or move, Sarah must use every clue that she overhears to piece together her own past.And work out who it is that keeps coming into her room.
A novel that grips from the very beginning and that will live long in the memory, The Last Thing I Remember is Deborah Bee’s startling debut thriller. Goodreads

I have just finished The Fields of Blood by Denise Mina

The Field of Blood

You can read the synopsis and an excerpt from this novel in yesterday’s post

Next I am planning on reading A Savage Hunger by Claire McGowan which will be published on 10 March 2016.

A Savage Hunger


Victim: Female. Twenty-two years of age.
Reason for investigation: Missing person.
ID: Alice Morgan. Student. Last seen at a remote religious shrine in Ballyterrin.
Alice Morgan’s disappearance raises immediate questions for forensic psychologist Paula Maguire. Alice, the daughter of a life peer in the Home Office, has vanished along with a holy relic – the bones of a saint – and the only trace is the bloodstains on the altar.
With no body to confirm death, the pressure in this high-profile case is all-consuming, and Paula knows that she will have to put her own life, including her imminent marriage, on hold, if they are to find the truth.
A connection to a decades-old murder immediately indicates that all may not be as it seems; as the summer heat rises and tempers fray, can Alice be found or will they learn that those that are hungry for vengeance may be the most savage of all? Goodreads

So that’s my books sorted for the week – What have you chosen?

  1. So you’re back to your favourite genre again after a break! I’ve also had a run of crime fiction once more. Just finished James Oswald’s The Damage Down. I’d never come across his work before and it’s solid police procedural tinged with a bit of supernatural, surprisingly well done. I’m currently reading a Japanese crime fiction book, Hideo Yokoyama’s Six Four, and my next will probably be Kate Medina’s Fire Damage. I had already enjoyed Medina’s debut White Crocodile, set in Cambodia, but this is the start of a new series featuring a psychologist and set in the UK.

  2. These do sound like absorbing books, Cleo. I’m especially intrigued by the McGowan, so I’ll be particularly keen to see what you think of that one when you get to it.


  3. Your last book intrigues me. I am immersed in young adult fiction of the last Harry Potter and the fifth installment of The 39 Clues series. I finished Uncommon Criminals, a second book in a series, and it was good but not as thrilling as the first.


  4. How are you liking The Last Thing I Remember So Far? I typically really like thrillers, but the last one I read was just slightly too graphic for me. Is this one very gory?
