A good month! I read 26 books and reached my goal of reading 200 books for the year!

The books above were my top 9 reads for the month, with the first 3 being 5 star reads and the rest 4 stars. The other 17 were broke down into 10- 3 star reads, 6- 2 star reads and one DNF.

 

Of my top 3 reads, I cannot recommend, "The Awakening" by Brett McBean enough, especially if you liked, "Boy's Life" by Robert R, McCammon. 

 

"Kings of the Promised Land" is an excellent re-telling of the biblical story of King Saul and David. I'm still actually reading it, but I love it and should be done with it tomorrow.

 

"Federal Underground" is a thriller, shock full of conspiracy theories and malevolent aliens.

That was a fun read :)

 

 

 

Looking forward to October, not because of the holiday, as it's just another day for me, but because they show lots of scary movies on TV, and I love to watch them. So, with my reading goal out of the way, I am going to take it easy, curl up on my comfy bed with some popcorn and prepare to be scared!

 

Hope you all have a great October!

Wofür du stirbst: Psychothriller
Wofür du stirbst: Psychothriller - Elizabeth Haynes Das war ja mal was ganz anderes. Wirklich gut und regt in gewisser Hinsicht sogar zum nachdenken an.

NetGalley Review - Behind Closed Doors
Behind Closed Doors - Elizabeth Haynes

Unfortunately, I was unable to get into Behind Closed Doors, and gave up half way through. Although I was reasonably interested in Scarlett’s story, I wasn’t keen on other aspects of the novel. I didn’t find the police procedural sections very interesting, and felt it dragged me away from Scarlett’s story.

I also didn’t fully understand the point of the police intelligence reports. They just felt like they interrupted the flow of the story, and the witness statements were so tiny, they were quite hard to read on a basic Kindle.

Having said that, I loved Into the Darkest Corner, so I’m still interested in future books by this author. This one just wasn’t for me.

I would like to thank the publisher, Little, Brown Book Group UK, Sphere, for allowing me a copy of this book via Netgalley in exchange for an honest review.

Behind Closed Doors - Elizabeth Haynes

Scarlett, her sister, Juliette and parents are in Greece on holiday but on their last night Scarlett is snatched and not seen for another 10 years when she is 25 years old. She has had a harrowing life in the sex trade, being moved from country to country - there is no one to trust, no one to be kind, just one horrible day follows another. Her family were also peculiar. This is a very grim book, well written but could have been better with a little less police jargon and procedure which began to be a bit wearing. There were also too many characters who only seemed to appear in the police internal email. This is the first book I have read by this author and I will definitely read some of her others.
