Review: The Killings at Kingfisher Hill (New Hercule Poirot Mysteries #4) by Sophie Hannah

Is there really any debate about Agatha Christie being the queen of mysteries? I have only read a couple of her books and have enjoyed them very much but there is also a dated quality about them which was one of the reasons that I was excited to read this ‘New Hercule Poirot’ mystery from Sophie Hannah.

I haven’t read any of the ‘new’ Hercule Poirot mysteries before but I am familiar with his eccentric character and was really looking forward to this one.

One thing that grabbed my attention was that it had some hints of one of Christie’s classic novels, Murder on the Orient Express, so I was eager to check this one out and see a more modern take on this classic character.

Special Feature and Excerpt: The Orphan of Cemetery Hill by Hester Fox

Hester Fox has quickly become a favorite author of mine. I have read all of her books and every fall I look forward to a new release.

I love her story telling style, her novels are full of atmosphere and lovely Gothic elements. I can’t say enough good things about her books and am so thrilled to be sharing a bit about this upcoming book today.

I will be reading it in October and this excerpt is tempting me so much to abandon my current read in favor of this one. I hope you enjoy this excerpt as much as I did and be sure to check this one out if you love a little romance and Gothic novels like Victoria Holt!

Review: The Forgotten Kingdom (The Lost Queen Trilogy #2) by Signe Pike

The Lost Queen was one of my favorite reads of last year and I raved about it to everyone I knew. Not to mention I gave it to all my friends and family as a Christmas present too.

So it’s easy to say that I had this next book on my TBR the instant I was done with the first book. The second it was available on Netgalley, I downloaded it and started reading.

Not going to lie, this one took me a lot longer to read than I was anticipating. Not because it was bad (not at all!) I just started it at a time when I was busy and couldn’t get to it as often as I wanted. Continue reading “Review: The Forgotten Kingdom (The Lost Queen Trilogy #2) by Signe Pike”

Special Feature: Don’t Look for Me by Wendy Walker

This lated book by Wendy Walker has been on my radar for months. I received a copy in late spring and have been drooling over the stunning cover for months.

I held off on reading it right away though because I know that my book club will probably be looking to this book in October to read. It sounds so so so good and I am thrilled to be sharing it with you guys today!

If you love thrillers then you will likely have heard about this book thanks to the big hype. I sure hope it lives up to expectations but to be honest, I am fairly sure it will as many early reviewers have been raving about this one! I have a feeling this is going to be a huge hit for this author! Continue reading “Special Feature: Don’t Look for Me by Wendy Walker”

Review: The Night Swim by Megan Goldin (Audible Edition)

I did a special feature on this book when it first came out. While it sounded good I wasn’t sure that it was one that I wanted to move up on my TBR list.

Then I started seeing a lot of other people on my Instagram talking about this one and was intrigued by some of their reviews. So I decided to take it to my book club and see what they thought.

We had fully planned on reading a different book for our September read, but this one sounded different and it also sounded like it that would generate a lot of great discussion for the book club. Continue reading “Review: The Night Swim by Megan Goldin (Audible Edition)”
