#20BooksofSummer June round-up

June Round-up



I’m so pleased to say that I am on target for my book reads in June which means, of course, that I’m on course to complete my 20 books.

As my books are pretty much all reviews and blog tours I have just given a link.

The Books

A charming story of the heroic bear Wojtek by Jenny Robertson illustrated by Tim Arnold


Then it was time for a terrific mystery set in 1930s Shanghai The Killing Time by M J Lee


Next came the chilling tale of The Tall Man by Phoebe Locke


My fourth book was Widows by Lynda la Plante this is a revised version of the 1983 original, a fast-paced heist thriller with an all female cast you won’t forget.


Then came I Never Lie by J B Sabral a disconcerting, unnerving book which covers the unfolding events of several murders from the viewpoint of Alex a TV news journalist and an alcoholic.


Sixth, and penultimate June read, was Oliver Twist and the Mystery of Throate Manor by David Stuart Davies an enjoyable Victorian mystery with Oliver Twist as the ‘sleuth’


My last June read was the compelling and tense psychological thriller Sticks and Stones by Jo Jakeman


So there I am on track, phew, with my #20ReadsofSummer for 2018.


Not only that but I also had a guest post by the author of Eyes Turned Skywards – Ken Lussey which is well worth a look. Also, I had a Q&A Emily Elgar author of If You Knew Her and a giveaway of her, kindly donated, book (UK closes 30 June) – go on you know you’d love it!

I do hope that you are all enjoying your #20,15,10BooksofSummer as much as I am
