Hello and Happy Saturday! Hope everyone is well! Spotted Christmas bits in the shops this week…. no, no and no!!!!! Just stop it LOL!!
Been a quiet bookish week as I’ve been rather involved with a beast of a book (850 pages!) so that’s taken up most of my time, but still got 2 books read, only one new addition to the netgalley shelf and nothing new through the post….. yet!!
So here’s my look back!
ALL THE WORDS UNSPOKEN by SERENA KAUR – 4 STARS
Just one new approval from netgalley this week….
MIRRORLAND by CAROLE JOHNSTONE
out April 2021
A thrilling work of psychological suspense with the startling twists of Gone Girl and the haunting emotional power of Room, Mirrorland is the story of twin sisters, the man they both love, and the dark childhood they can’t leave behind.
Cat lives in Los Angeles, about as far away as she can get from her estranged twin sister El and No. 36 Westeryk Road, the imposing gothic house in Edinburgh where they grew up. As girls, they invented Mirrorland, a dark, imaginary place under the pantry stairs full of pirates, witches, and clowns. These days Cat rarely thinks about their childhood home, or the fact that El now lives there with her husband Ross.
But when El mysteriously disappears after going out on her sailboat, Cat is forced to return to the grand old house, which has scarcely changed in twenty years. No. 36 Westeryk Road is still full of shadowy, hidden corners, and at every turn Cat finds herself stumbling on long-held secrets and terrifying ghosts from the past. Because someone—El?—has left Cat clues all over the house: a treasure hunt that leads right back to Mirrorland, where she knows the truth lies crouched and waiting…
A twisty, dark, and brilliantly crafted thriller about love and betrayal, redemption and revenge, Mirrorland is a propulsive, page-turning debut about the power of imagination and the price of freedom.
