Wrap Up: October 2019

And just like that, October is over, which means it is time for another monthly wrap up. For my October TBR I picked out 6 books, including the book I had started at the end of September. But, I didn’t read as much as I would have liked, and only managed to finish 3 books, and about 80% of a 4th. On the positive side, all 4 of those books have been great reads!


The 3 books I finished are:

BOOK 1: The Lying Room by Nicci French

A trusted colleague and friend. A mother. A wife. Neve Connolly is loved by everyone around her. But, she has also made mistakes; some small, some unconsciously done, some large, some deliberate. She is only human, after all. But now one mistake is spiralling out of control and Neve is bringing those around her into immense danger. A liar. A cheat. A threat. Neve Connolly is also all of these things. Could she be a murderer too? 

The Lying Room was an excellent story, highlighting how lies and secrets can have a hugely damaging effect on your life, and those around you. It is a fast paced psychological thriller, that will have you hooked from the very start. I gave The Lying Room a 5/5 rating! FULL REVIEW HERE!


BOOK 2: Justice Gone by N. Lombardi Jr.

When a homeless war veteran is beaten to death by the police, stormy protests ensue, engulfing a small New Jersey town. Soon after, three cops are gunned down. A multi-state manhunt is underway for a cop killer on the loose. And Dr. Tessa Thorpe, a veteran’s counselor, is caught up in the chase. Donald Darfield, an African-American Iraqi war vet, war-time buddy of the beaten man, and one of Tessa’s patients, is holed up in a mountain cabin. Tessa, acting on instinct, sets off to find him, but the swarm of law enforcement officers gets there first, leading to Darfield’s dramatic capture. Now, the only people separating him from the lethal needle of state justice are Tessa and ageing blind lawyer, Nathaniel Bodine. Can they untangle the web tightening around Darfield in time, when the press and the justice system are baying for revenge?

I read Justice Gone and reviewed it for the Justice Gone blog tour. I had high expectations for it, but it exceeded them all! I was shocked by the pure emotion of this story, and I struggled to put it down. I gave Justice Gone a 5/5 rating! FULL REVIEW HERE!


BOOK 3: From Inside The House by WD Jackson-Smart

Two victims. Brutally murdered in their own home. Body parts taken.
D.I. Graves is back on the case to face his toughest challenge yet. A case with no motive and no suspect, nothing at all that could explain why someone would kill innocent people in such a way. Then the next victims are discovered. Another pair of bodies. New body parts taken. Again in their own home. Someone is breaking into houses across the city at night, leaving horror in their wake. It seems to Graves that this could be two serial killers, working together. But how are they choosing their victims? Is any house in London a target? Is anyone safe? To make matters worse, a journalist is threatening to cause more harm than good with her obsessive push in covering the story to further her career, and someone is targeting Graves personally, seeking revenge against him in relation to an old case. Can Graves keep himself safe long enough to stop the serial killers before they strike again?

I read From Inside The House ready for a blog tour that I am taking part in this month! I am not going to give away anything about this one, but I will say that this is an amazing read! REVIEW COMING SOON!
