As I’ve mentioned before I love to read when it’s comes to Summer, especially when on holiday and with a holiday booked for 2 months time I’m getting excited about which books I will be taking with me.
Below are 4 new releases in a mix of genres that I’m eager to submerge myself into!
The Woman in Cabin 10 by Ruth Ware
£5.00 (hardcover) Amazon here
Having heard many good things about Ruth Ware’s In a Dark Dark Wood I was instantly intrigued by her latest novel; The Woman in Cabin 10. The story starts with journalist Lo Blacklock waking to find her flat being burgled. This of course leaves her unsettled and paranoid and when the perfect assignment comes up a week later of 7 nights of luxury on an exclusive cruise ship she think it could only do her good to get away. However on board she’s witness to a woman being thrown overboard… the only problem – all guests are accounted for. As the cruise carries on with it’s journey as nothing has happened Lo tries to seek out the truth and I’m sure while questioning her sanity. Having also read the preview on Amazon this really looks like a page turner of a book!
£3.85 (paperback) Amazon here
From time to time I love a good YA fiction even if I’m nearing 30! Filled with emotion and often unique subject matters I always find them interesting and refreshing to read. This YA looks no different as it’s part love story, part coming-of-age story with one huge problem, protagonist Madaline suffers from a rare condition that makes her allergic to literally everything. The book is also broken up with pictures, emails and IM messages which is aimed at younger readers but I always find that adds a more real element to the story. One for YA fans for sure.
Hidden Bodies by Caroline Kepnes
£3.85 (paperback) Amazon here
On to a book that couldn’t be farther from YA fiction. This is the follow-up to ‘You’ (Amazon here) a dark and twisted tale of a book store owner come psychopathic murderer which I would suggest you read first. Now moved on from his last employee and obsession he has a new love and one that shares his love of literature. Expect bad language and lots of adult content with both books. But trust me ‘You’ is pretty damn gripping.
£9.09 (paperback) Amazon here
Shamefully before Ctrl, Alt; Delete came out I hadn’t heard of Emma Gannon or her blog however that really didn’t matter as from just reading the book description I knew she’d created an incredibly relatable book for anyone that grew up in the 90’s/00’s and spent most of their time online. That was certainly me and with tales of MySpace and the antics of MSN I’m really looking forward to what I imagine to be a pretty hilarious and nostalgic read. The book also has a girl boss vibe to it talking about careers that can lead on from growing up online and internet trolls. This looks a light but interest read. Emma also have a podcast by the same name as her book which I’ve really been enjoying recently.
