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

At the moment I am reading The Secret by the Lake by Louise Douglas a book that has plenty of secrets to be uncovered before they are repeated in the present.

The Secret by the Lake

You can read a taster and the description for this book in yesterday’s post

The last book I finished was As Good As Dead by Elizabeth Evans, a disquieting tale which is due to be published on 19 November 2015.

As Good As Dead


Endearingly flawed and battered-around-the-edges, Charlotte has managed to fashion herself a life that balances marriage and a writing career, but now Esmé, the charming friend Charlotte betrayed at university, stands at Charlotte’s door: Surprise!
Charlotte yearns to make amends, but she’s wary. Esmé makes no mention of Charlotte’s old betrayal and the two resume their friendship, but soon enough a request from Esmé will upend Charlotte’s careful world.
Suspenseful, witty, with spot-on evocations of university life in the late 1980s, As Good as Dead performs an exquisite psychological high-wire act, exploring loves and friendships poisoned by secrets and fears. NetGalley

My review will follow shortly

Next on my list is The Go-Between by L.P. Hartley, a book I was inspired to buy after half-watching the TV adaption.

The Go-Betweeen


When one long, hot summer, young Leo is staying with a school-friend at Brandham Hall, he begins to act as a messenger between Ted, the farmer, and Marian, the beautiful young woman up at the hall. He becomes drawn deeper and deeper into their dangerous game of deceit and desire, until his role brings him to a shocking and premature revelation. Goodreads
