Review: Forget Me Not by A.M. Taylor @killerreads @author_amtaylor #forgetmenot #bookreview #booknerd

Goodreads Blurb:

WHAT HAPPENED TO NORA?

When Maddie met Nora, their friendship felt as easy as breathing. And when Nora disappeared, all the air went with her. Without her best friend, Maddie’s life became impossible.

Ten years later, Nora is still missing and Maddie is still searching. People have been questioned. People have even been accused. But no one has managed to find Nora.

Then, in the same spot where Nora went missing, the murdered body of Nora’s little sister is found. Convinced this is no coincidence, Maddie resolves to uncover the killer and find Nora – dead or alive.

But will she be able to cope, when we learn what really happened to Nora…?

My review

Well folks, be prepared to be annoying frustrated but in a completely more-ish way.  This story will have you infuriated with having to go to bed because unfortunately us humans required adequate sleep to live and function! Admittedly, it did start out slow for me, there was a little too much narrative and not enough action, however the more chapters I finished the more I wanted to get to the end and find out what did happen to Nora? The author did have an effortless way with description which I found a pleasure to read, and it did flow nicely.  However, it could have used more plot twists, I unfortunately didn’t have any WTF moments. 

Was an effortless read and I do look forward to reading more from this author in the very near future.

I gave Forget Me Not: 3/5 stars

Happy Reading

Review: The Temp by Michelle Frances #thetemp #michellefrances #bookreview #bookblog #bookblogger #booknerd

Goodreads…

Wanted: Assistant to provide maternity cover for high-powered TV producer. Must be bright, creative, with killer instincts.

Emma would do anything to work for the woman who has the job she wants. Carrie is at the top of her game, with a dream career, a baby on the way, and a handsome screenwriter husband. For Emma, with parents who don’t understand her ambition and a serious misstep behind her, this temp position might be her last chance.

Carrie has given up more than anyone knows to get to the top of a ruthless business. She won’t give up this baby too. But with Emma filling in for her at the office, her perfect life starts to unravel. Her bank account is inexplicably overdrawn, her husband seems strangely distant and colleagues are all too happy to take Emma’s creative direction. Carrie finds herself dying to get back to work . . . until a letter left at her door changes everything.

Trust and fear trade places in a love triangle that defies readers’ expectations at every turn.

 

My Review

It’s really an age old story idea, and it doesn’t matter how many times I read it, I never tire of it because 1) It’s a bloody good story line, and 2) An author always makes it there own.  And the other did make it there own, which I applaud because I can imagine that would be a tad tricky!  In saying that, I did find this read on the slower side throughout much of the read, and I can’t say that I found any major surprising plot twists but there was few smaller ones, which did make you want to keep reading (thumbs up).  The writing was lovely to read in that although i was slowish, it flowed and was quite effortless. I can definitely see this author being moreish!

Thank you so much to Netgalley and Pan MacMillian for allowing me an ebook copy of this story, I definitely look forward to reading more from this fabulous new author.

I give The Temp: 3/5 stars

An Old True Crime Re-Released in E-book Version, YAY

If you follow my blog, then you’ll be aware that I reviewed ‘Butcher, Baker’ by Walter Gilmour and Leland E. Hale a few months ago and actually really enjoyed it! You’ll be pleased to know that it’s now available as an e-book! Which is fantastic because I read the hard copy and thought to myself, I’d really love this on my Kindle, like I do with all older true crime books.

Currently Reading and What’s Up Next!

I’m in the middle of my mid-semester break, both enjoying it and looking forward to getting back to studying!! I’m a little sick like that, I enjoy the first week and then I’m climbing the walls missing it from the second week onwards, LOL.

I am enjoying some great books at the moment. Last week, I finished The Twisted Knot by JM Peace, which I’ll be posting a review and intervewing the author on the 25th. I’m currently reading a true crime book ‘Butcher, Baker’ by Walter Gilmore which I’m almost finished and fiction novel ‘The Last Time She Saw Him’ by Jane Haseldine.

I’ve been trying to decide what to read next, and given the state of my library, both hard copy and ebook libraries, it’s been a hard task to perform PMSL. So I just did a random pick and got these two beauties. One from my hardcopy library, the other from my kindle. I look forward to posting reviews shortly about the ones above, and starting the newbies below!

What are some that you have next on your TBR pile?

Happy reading and buying

May E-Book Haul

So if you’ve seen my library, you know that I have a small space to work with and because of that I have to sometimes be selective with hardcopy’s… Nah I just buy ebook’s when i want ROFL. I know that there are a lot of people who just can’t ebooks, and trust me I understand I used to be one of those people. But I saw the light and seriously LOVE IT. Means you can have two libraries!!

Anyway, here’s my May e-book haul.

My NTR Pick

So although I won’t get to this next book for a little while yet, maybe a week or two, I’ve chosen what read it will will be. 

  
I’m quite critical of serial killer themed fiction. If it’s not done well, it comes off cliche and annoying. I’m apprehensive but I have heard good things, so I’m looking forward to it. 

What’s your next to read (NTR)?

Happy reading

Here’s a little review of books brought so far this year

To say I’m addicted to buying books (bibliotaph) would be a terrific understatement. I can’t even talk about books without feeling the urge to purchase one or 20! Right this very instant, I’m opening a new tab to a bookstore because I do need to buy one now, lol.

So, I’ve seen another page Bibliophile Book Club write a post about her buys so far this year, and I must say, I do so very love looking at other people’s purchases. So I thought i’d be fun to tally mine so far. So here we go…

So there you have it. My purchases so far which I am so bloody happy to look at! I’m waiting for some to arrive in the mail at the moment. Although my partner has suggested that I try something different this year for my last two semesters of my undergrad degree. To resist buying books during the semester and instead use them as a reward when I complete a goal. I have to admit, it’s a good idea, I just don’t know how strong my will to not buy is! LOL.
Here’s one more magical book pic and then I’m off 🙂
