My Bookish Weekly Wrap Up – 25th January 2020

Hello all! No sign of the sun here for a few days now – I miss it! The grey skies and drizzle are getting me down! And that normally leads to book buying…..someone stop me!!!!!

It’s been a great week for finishing off a few books with 5 finished this week and with the crap weather set to continue into the weekend it’s sounding perfect for  more reading! Good news with the Persephone Mini Readathon going on, hosted by the lovely Jessie at Dwell In Possibility and the Cosy Reading Night on Saturday Night hosted by Lauren and the Books from BookTube!

RULES OF THE ROAD BY CIARA GERAGHTY

publication date – April 2020

The simple fact of the matter is that Iris loves life. Maybe she’s forgotten that. Sometimes that happens, doesn’t it? To the best of us?
All I have to do is remind her of that one simple fact.

‘A superb writer’ Irish Examiner

When Iris Armstrong goes missing, her best friend Terry, wife, mother and all-round worrier, is convinced something bad has happened.

And when she finds her glamorous, feisty friend, she’s right: Iris is setting out on a journey that she plans to make her last.

The only way for Terry to stop Iris is to join her, on a road trip that will take her, Iris and Terry’s confused father Eugene onto a ferry, across the Irish sea and into an adventure that will change all of their lives.

Somehow what should be the worst six days of Terry’s life turn into the best.

WILD DOG by SERGE JONCOUR (copy sent via Gallic Press)

publication date – April 2020

‘So original, so beautifully done, and sinister and savage. I didn’t want it to end’ Chris Whitaker, author of Tall Oaks

When you’re confronted with a wolf, you have to think like a wolf…

Franck and Lise, a French couple in the film industry, rent a cottage in the quiet hills of the French Lot to get away from the stresses of modern life.

In this remote corner of the world, there is no phone signal. A mysterious dog emerges, looking for a new master. Ghosts of a dark past run wild in these hills, where a German lion tamer took refuge in the First World War…

Franck and Lise are confronted with nature at its most brutal. And they are about to discover that man and beast have more in common than they think.
