And to the book…..

LIAR by AYELET GUNDAR-GOSHEN

I’ve not heard of this book at all – have you?!

From the award-winning author of Waking Lions, a novel about how one lie can change everything, when a teenaged girl’s scream — and the false assumption that comes from it — radiates through a street, a neighborhood, and a city, and turns lives upside down.

Nofar is an average — very average — teenage girl working in an ice cream parlor at the end of summer. Dozens of customers come to the shop every day, but no one gives her a second glance–she is not one of those girls that the eye lingers on.

But Nofar’s world changes completely when a well-known TV presenter comes into the shop. Bitter about his own failures, he insults and humiliates her and she flees in tears. The presenter, who is still waiting for his change, chases her and the girl screams. Nofar’s shouts alert the neighbors, and to her surprise everyone is convinced that the man tried to sexually assault her. And she decides to let them believe it.

For the first time in her life, Nofar finds herself the center of attention. Her lie turns her into a kind of Cinderella, as the plain, awkward ice cream seller becomes a media princess. Meanwhile, one of the only people who knows what really happened demands a price for his silence.

Written with dark humor and deep insight into the shadowy side of human nature, The Liar is a story about how one little lie can make a huge difference. In a world of media connectivity and alternate facts, the scream of one girl can make an entire city tweet and howl.

Looking forward to trying all of this little lot out soon!

And then to the book….. THE CHARMED LIFE OF ALEX MOORE by MOLLY FLATT

It is one I’ve seen around but not heard too much about so looking forward to reading it soon – have you read it?

There are success stories – and there are true stories
How would you feel if everything in your life suddenly started to go . . . right? Six months ago, Alex Moore was stuck in a dead-end job, feeling her potential quietly slip away. Then, seemingly overnight, she launched her dream start-up and became one of London’s fastest rising tech stars. At thirty-one, her life has just begun. But Alex’s transformation isn’t easy for those around her. Her friends are struggling to accept her rapid success, her parents worry she’s burning out and her fiancé is getting cold feet.
Then weird things start to happen. Muggings, stalkers – even a wild claim that she murdered a stranger. But when Alex visits the Orkney Islands to recharge, weird turns into WTF. Because there she discovers the world’s oldest secret – and it’s a secret that Alex’s stratospheric rise has royally messed up.
Full of heart and humour, this is a very modern adventure with a most unexpected twist

#Unboxing The Bookishly Classic Crate – Alice In Wonderland edition #spoileralert

Last month, the fabulous Bookishly announced that their Classic Crate for January 2019 would be the Alice In Wonderland edition! How could I not treat myself to one of those?!  I adore anything Alice related so my order went in straight away!

And now the box of Wonderland goodies has arrived – and it’s even better than I could have imagined!  So I thought I’d share with you what I got – and to let you know that their February Crate is a Jane Eyre edition….. just in case you’re interested!  Pre-order link here 

all the goodies!!!

Here’s a closer look at everything!

Fabulous mug!! A bookworm can never have too many mugs!!

A pack of ‘Drink Me’ Tea from Jenier World of Teas

gorgeous bookmark!

Fab badge! ‘why is a raven like a writing desk?
gorgeous card print – curiouser and curiouser

love this framed alice page/saying! Bookishly are famous for these!

set of gorgeous cards that I might need to frame and keep for myself!

And then two books – 

Lewis Carroll – O Frabjous Day – Little Black Classic Version

‘I cried, “Come, tell me how you live!”
And thumped him on the head.’

Conjuring wily walruses, dancing lobsters, a Jabberwock and a Bandersnatch, Carroll’s fantastical verse gave new words to the English language.

And a beautiful edition of ALICE’S ADVENTURES IN WONDERLAND 😍

‘Contrariwise … if it was so, it might be; and if it were so, it would be but as it isn’t, it ain’t. That’s logic.’

‘I had sent my heroine straight down a rabbit-hole … without the least idea what was to happen afterwards,’ wrote Lewis Carroll, describing how Alice was conjured up one ‘golden afternoon’ in 1862 to entertain his child-friend Alice Liddell. His dream worlds of nonsensical Wonderland and the back-to-front Looking-Glass kingdom depict order turned upside-down: a baby turns into a pig, time is abandoned at a disordered tea-party and a chaotic game of chess makes a seven-year-old girl a Queen. But amongst the anarchic humour and sparkling word play, puzzles and riddles, are poignant moments of nostalgia for lost childhood. Original and experimental, the Alice books give readers a window on both child and adult worlds.

#Unboxing Reading In Heels Subscription Box – November

Time to look away if you’re subscribed to the fabulous Reading In Heels as I just received their November box full of more treats!

And the book for this month is

States of Passion by Nihad Sirees

‘Captivating’ – Observer

The world is so strange, The strangest things are the stories you overhear.

When a hapless bureaucrat finds himself stranded in the countryside during a raging storm, he seeks refuge in a grand yet isolated mansion, inhabited by only an elderly gentleman and his unwelcoming servant.

The tale of family secrets he encounters while sheltering there begins with a faded photograph in yellowed newspaper, of a beautiful woman stepping off a train at Aleppo station many years ago. It transports him to Syria’s golden age, to the heart of the mysterious, unconventional banat al-ishreh – the infamous women who live, dance and play music together – and into a tangled web of forbidden love.

States of Passion is a beautifully spun, playful novel about what it means to live within a memory of the past – and about the many faces of a city that might have been.

Sounds just like my kind of book! Have you read it? Interested to hear from people who have!

HAPPY READING!

#unboxing My Chronicle Book Box November edition #scifi #fantasy #bookblogger #spoileralert

Book Unboxing alert!!!  A positive side to a dreary, rainy day is the arrival of my latest My Chronicle Book Box ! You can subscribe to 4 boxes a year and choose from Crime & Mystery, or  Sci-Fi and Fantasy!  I go for the latter and every time I receive a box I’m always so impressed with the books chosen, and the gifts also included!!  

So here’s a quick peek as to what made me smile in the November edition – look away now if you’re waiting for your box and don’t want any spoilers!!!

Gorgeous scented Cosy Winter Reads candle –

from Bookworm Candles & Crafts

Stunning poster featuring Rose from Nick Earne’s Bloody Rose book

Artwork created by Felix Ortiz and not available for purchase anywhere else!

 A chapter sample for A BOY AND HIS DOG AT THE END OF THE WORLD by C.A. FLETCHER

new book due for release in the New Year!

And on to the books! You get 3 in each box!! All come with signed bookplates too!! Alongside extra interviews with some of the authors as well!

EARLY RISER by JASPER FFORDE

Very excited to receive this as I had seen it around publication date and thought it looked like ‘my kind of book’ but never got around to buying it!

The new standalone novel from Number 1 bestselling author Jasper Fforde. 

Every Winter, the human population hibernates. 

During those bitterly cold four months, the nation is a snow-draped landscape of desolate loneliness, and devoid of human activity.

Well, not quite.

Your name is Charlie Worthing and it’s your first season with the Winter Consuls, the committed but mildly unhinged group of misfits who are responsible for ensuring the hibernatory safe passage of the sleeping masses.

You are investigating an outbreak of viral dreams which you dismiss as nonsense; nothing more than a quirky artefact borne of the sleeping mind.

When the dreams start to kill people, it’s unsettling.

When you get the dreams too, it’s weird.

When they start to come true, you begin to doubt your sanity.

But teasing truth from Winter is never easy: You have to avoid the Villains and their penchant for murder, kidnapping and stamp collecting, ensure you aren’t eaten by Nightwalkers whose thirst for human flesh can only be satisfied by comfort food, and sidestep the increasingly less-than-mythical WinterVolk.

But so long as you remember to wrap up warmly, you’ll be fine.

ROSEWATER by TADE THOMPSON

Tade Thompson’s Rosewater is the start of an award-winning, cutting edge trilogy set in Nigeria, by one of science fiction’s most engaging new voices.

Rosewater is a town on the edge. A community formed around the edges of a mysterious alien biodome, its residents comprise the hopeful, the hungry and the helpless—people eager for a glimpse inside the dome or a taste of its rumored healing powers.

Kaaro is a government agent with a criminal past. He has seen inside the biodome, and doesn’t care to again—but when something begins killing off others like himself, Kaaro must defy his masters to search for an answer, facing his dark history and coming to a realization about a horrifying future.

BLOODY ROSE by NICHOLAS EAMES

Live fast, die young.

Tam Hashford is tired of working at her local pub, slinging drinks for world-famous mercenaries and listening to the bards sing of adventure and glory in the world beyond her sleepy hometown.

When the biggest mercenary band of all rolls into town, led by the infamous Bloody Rose, Tam jumps at the chance to sign on as their bard. It’s adventure she wants – and adventure she gets as the crew embark on a quest that will end in one of two ways: glory or death.

It’s time to take a walk on the wyld side.

🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟

I’m a very happy bookworm today with all my new books and goodies!!  Now to decide which book to read first……….

At twenty-three, Alice Hare leaves England for New York. She falls in love with Manhattan, and becomes fixated on Mizuko Himura, an intriguing Japanese writer whose life has strange parallels to her own.

As Alice closes in on Mizuko, her ‘internet twin’, realities multiply and fact and fiction begin to blur. The relationship between the two women exposes a tangle of lies and sexual encounters. Three families collide as Alice learns that the swiftest answer to an ancient question – where do we come from? – can now be found online.

Witchsign by Den Patrick

A Limited Edition Proof copy

From celebrated YA author Den Patrick comes WITCHSIGN, the first novel in a fresh and exciting new fantasy trilogy

It has been seventy-five years since the dragons’ rule of fire and arcane magic over Vinkerveld was ended, and the Empire was born. Since, the tyrannical Synod has worked hard to banish all manifestations of the arcane across the lands.

However, children are still born bearing the taint of the arcane, known to all as witchsign. So each year the Emperor sends out his Vigilants across the continent to detect the arcane in these children. Those found tainted are taken, and never seen again. Steiner has always suspected his sister Kjellrunn of bearing witchsign. But when their father’s attempt to protect her from the Invigilation backfires, it is Steiner who is mistakenly taken. However it is not death which awaits Steiner, but an Academy where the children with witchsign learn to master their powers – some at the cost of their lives. Steiner is determined to escape the Academy and protect his sister from this fate.

But powerful enemies await him at every turn, and Steiner finds himself taken on a journey straight into the heart of the Empire’s deepest secrets, which will force him to reconsider everything he has known about witchsign

Rivers of London by Water Weed and Ben Aaronovitch and Andrew Cartmel

First in the series comic book that ties in with the bestselling Rivers of London novels.

The War in the Dark by Nick Setchfield

Debut novel of the SFX magazine editor.

A genre-defying page turner that fuses thriller and speculative fiction with dark fantasy in a hidden world in the heart of Cold War Europe. 

Europe. 1963. And the true Cold War is fought on the borders of this world, at the edges of the light.

When the assassination of a traitor trading with the enemy goes terribly wrong, British Intelligence agent Christopher Winter must flee London. In a tense alliance with a lethal, mysterious woman named Karina Lazarova, he’s caught in a quest for hidden knowledge from centuries before, an occult secret written in a language of fire. A secret that will give supremacy to the nation that possesses it.

Racing against the Russians, the chase takes them from the demon-haunted Hungarian border to treasure-laden tunnels beneath Berlin, from an impossible house in Vienna to a bomb-blasted ruin in Bavaria where something unholy waits, born of the power of white fire and black glass . . .

It’s a world of treachery, blood and magic. A world at war in the dark.

Engraved wooden coaster

Game of Thrones merchandise makes me a happy girl so was very pleased to see this included!

Storyteller Pencils

Fab set of pencils designed and manufactured by https://www.ustudio.design/ .  With literary slogans on the side of each pencil including ‘ In A Galaxy Far, Far, Away’, ‘It Was A Dark and Stormy Night’, and  ‘Once Upon a Time’ to name just a few!

The Soldier by Neal Asher

With a signed bookplate and exclusive interview!

In a far corner of space, on the very borders between humanity’s Polity worlds and the kingdom of the vicious crab-like prador, is an immediate threat to all sentient life: an accretion disc, a solar system designed by the long-dead Jain race and swarming with living technology powerful enough to destroy entire civilizations.

Neither the Polity or the prador want the other in full control of the disc, so they’ve placed an impartial third party in charge of the weapons platform guarding the technology from escaping into the galaxy: Orlandine, a part-human, part-AI haiman. She’s assisted by Dragon, a mysterious, spaceship-sized alien entity who has long been suspicious of Jain technology and who suspects the disc is a trap lying-in-wait.

Meanwhile, the android Angel is planning an attack on the Polity, and is searching for a terrible weapon to carry out his plans?a Jain super-soldier. But what exactly the super-soldier is, and what it could be used for if it fell into the wrong hands, will bring Angel and Orlandine’s missions to a head in a way that could forever change the balance of power in the Polity universe.

In The Soldier, British science fiction writer Neal Asher kicks off another Polity-based trilogy in signature fashion, concocting a mind-melting plot filled with far-future technology, lethal weaponry, and bizarre alien creations.

Dust by Mark Thompson

Published by Red Door Publishing

“Early in life, my grandfather told me that only three things were certain: birth, death and time. And time only ticked one way; it went forward and never back. It came to be a recurring wish with me, the desire to turn back the clock, to undo what I had done. Always wishing for the impossible, my feet stuck firm in the molasses of the present, unable to shrug off decisions I had made and their unforeseen or disregarded consequences.”

J.J. Walsh and Tony ‘El Greco’ Papadakis are inseparable. Smoking Kents out on an abandoned cannery dock, and watching gulls sway on rusting buoys in the sea, they dream of adventure…a time when they can act as adults. The day they’ll see the mighty Pacific Ocean.

Set in small-town New Jersey in the 1960s, against the backdrop of the Vietnam war, Dust follows the boys through the dry heat of a formative summer. They face religious piety and its murderous consequences, alcohol, girls, sex, loss, tragedy and ultimately the tiny things that combine to make life what it is for the two friends – a great adventure.

But it’s a road trip through the heart of southern America with J.J.’s father that truly reveals a darker side to life – the two halves of a divided nation, where wealth, poverty and racial bigotry collide. This beautifully written debut novel would not be out of place alongside the work of Steinbeck and Philipp Meyer’s American Rust.

At turns funny, and at others heart-achingly sad, their story unfolds around the honest and frequently irreverent observations of two young people trying to grow up fast in a world that is at times confusing, and at others seen with a clarity only the young may possess.

THE RED BEACH HUT BY LYNN MICHELL

Published by Linen Press

“Their eyes met and locked. Pulling his hand from his pocket, Neville waved. Once.”

Eight year old Neville is the first to notice that the red beach hut is occupied again.

Abbott, panicked by what he believes is a homophobic cyber attack, is on the run. The hut is his refuge and shelter.

Inevitably man and boy collide. Their fleeting friendship is poignant, honest and healing. But Abbot’s past threatens to tear him away, as others watch and self-interpret what they see.

An evocative portrayal of two outsiders who find companionship on a lonely beach, Lynn Michell’s novel is about the labels we give people who are different, and the harm that ensues. 

THE LAST PILOT BY BENJAMIN JOHNCOCK

Published by Myriad

“Harrison sat very still. On the screen was the surface of the moon.”

Jim Harrison is a test pilot in the United States Air Force, one of the exalted few. He spends his days cheating death in the skies above the Mojave Desert and his nights at his friend Pancho’s bar, often with his wife, Grace. She and Harrison are secretly desperate for a child-and when, against all odds, Grace learns that she is pregnant, the two are overcome with joy.

While America becomes swept up in the fervor of the Space Race, Harrison turns his attention home, passing up the chance to become an astronaut to welcome his daughter, Florence, into the world. Together, he and Grace confront the thrills and challenges of raising a child head-on. Fatherhood is different than flying planes-less controlled, more anxious-however the pleasures of watching Florence grow are incomparable. But when his family is faced with a sudden and inexplicable tragedy, Harrison’s instincts as a father and a pilot are put to test. As a pilot, he feels compelled to lead them through it-and as a father, he fears that he has fallen short.

The aftermath will haunt the Harrisons and strain their marriage as Jim struggles under the weight of his decisions. Beginning when the dust of the Second World War has only just begun to settle and rushing onward into the Sixties, Benjamin Johncock traces the path of this young couple as they are uprooted by events much larger than themselves. The turns the Harrisons take together are at once astonishing and recognizable; their journey, both frightening and full of hope. Set against the backdrop of one of the most emotionally charged periods in American history, The Last Pilot is a mesmerizing debut novel of loss and finding courage in the face of it from an extraordinary new talent.

☀☼☀☼☀
