This Week in Books (November 9)

This Week In Books

Hosted by Lipsyy 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

At the moment I am reading A Motif of Seasons by Edward Glover which is the third part of a trilogy, but hey when did I let reading out of order get in the way of a new book!



Two powerful 19th-century English and Prussian families are still riven by the consequences of an ancestral marriage – one that bequeathed venomous division, rivalry and hatred. Three beautiful women – each ambitious and musically gifted – seek to break these inherited shackles of betrayal, revenge and cruelty in their pursuit of sexual freedom and love. But the past proves a formidable and vicious opponent. Set against the backdrop of Europe’s inexorable slide towards the First World War, the final resolution of this ancient and destructive quarrel hangs by a thread – and with it the fate of an 18th-century music book full of secrets.
The last volume in the thrilling Herzberg trilogy, A Motif of Seasons finally solves the intriguing mystery at the heart of the series – in a definitive and surprising way. Amazon

I have recently finished the very enjoyable Another Day Gone by Eliza Graham


An excerpt and the synopsis featured in yesterday’s post

Next up I am finally going to read In Her Wake by Amanda Jennings which I am very much looking forward to, having read some very good reviews both pre and post publication.

In Her Wake


A tragic family event reveals devastating news that rips apart Bella’s comfortable existence. Embarking on a personal journey to uncover the truth, she faces a series of traumatic discoveries that take her to the ruggedly beautiful Cornish coast, where hidden truths, past betrayals and a 25-year-old mystery threaten not just her identity, but her life.Chilling, complex and profoundly moving, In Her Wake is a gripping psychological thriller that questions the nature of family – and reminds us that sometimes the most shocking crimes are committed closest to home.

  1. I’m reading Prue Leith’s The Prodigal Daughter at the moment. It’s the second in a trilogy. Lots of lovely descriptions of food!

  2. I’m glad to hear you enjoyed Another Day Gone! I have a Netgalley copy waiting to be read some time soon… In Her Wake sounds really good as well. Happy reading!

  3. Several as usual: Les Mis (on Serial Reader). Rosie Effect (audio for commuting), The Blue Between Sky and Water by Susan Abulhawa (Kindle/phone read); Names for the Sea: Strangers in Iceland by Sarah Moss (paperback) and need to finish Frankenstein (lost interest after Halloween, but will finish it).

      1. Interesting–exactly my response to the Rosie Effect so far. It’s fun, but the first one was so good that it’s hard to recapture that. Sarah Moss is interesting–the one I’m reading is nonfiction–not sure about the others.

  4. In Her Wake is waiting on my Kindle, I can’t wait to read your thoughts on it, I’ll probably read it after your review 🙂 I don’t know how you do it, I cannot just get into a series if I don’t start at the beginning! Happy reading!
