My Bookish Weekly Wrap Up – 30th May 2020

Hello!  We made it through another week! Yay us!! This week has included a cream cake or two for the first time in a couple of months….. well worth the wait I can tell you!! It is the little things in life that get you through!

And the books have been getting me through another week, especially as the sun has been shining again so I’ve been spending as much time outdoors as possible and that’s where I’m reading the best at the moment! Another 4 books finished, just 1 visit to Netgalley and 1 lovely piece of bookpost for a blog tour!  I’m still not buying anything…… I think I might need to change that!!! 😉

Here’s my look back!

ANXIOUS PEOPLE by FREDRIK BACKMAN

publication date – August 2020

A bank robber on the run locks himself in with an over-enthusiastic estate agent, two bitter IKEA-addicts, a pregnant woman, a suicidal multi-millionaire and a rabbit. In the end the robber gives up and lets everyone go, but when the police storm the apartment it is . . . empty.

In a series of dysfunctional testimonies after the event, the witnesses all tell their version of what really happened and it’s clear we have a classic locked-room mystery on our hands: How did the robber manage to escape? Why is everyone so angry? And: What is WRONG with people these days?

And in the post ahead of a Blog Tour in June!

THE CURATOR by M.W.CRAVEN

out June 2020

It’s Christmas and a serial killer is leaving displayed body parts all over Cumbria. A strange message is left at each scene: #BSC6. Called in to investigate, the National Crime Agency’s Washington Poe and Tilly Bradshaw are faced with a case that makes no sense. Why were some victims anaesthetized, while others died in appalling agony? Why is their only suspect denying what they can irrefutably prove but admitting to things they weren’t even aware of? And why did the victims all take the same two weeks off work three years earlier?

And when a disgraced FBI agent gets in touch things take an even darker turn. Because she doesn’t think Poe is dealing with a serial killer at all; she thinks he’s dealing with someone far, far worse – a man who calls himself the Curator.

And nothing will ever be the same again…
