Star Rating: ★✰✰✰✰ Three people living in the same building but barely knowing of each other’s existence. Karen is a doctor and researcher, doing a study on the rising rates of autism. Tam has just lost his job as a policeman and now spends his days between takeaway containers and whiskey bottles. Nick is trying to live independently with his Asperger’s but has to deal with visits from his grandfather disrupting his routine.
Star Rating: ★★★★★ Aiden Bishop wakes up in someone else's body in the middle of the forest, with no idea where, or in fact who, he is. What he does know is that Anna is in trouble and he has to help her.
This weeks Top Ten Tuesday (a book inspired list-series from That Artsy Reader Girl) is books I could re-read forever. I might cheat slightly in this one by adding in a couple of series, because otherwise I wouldn’t get anywhere near 10 books. I don’t often re-read a lot of books, so if I do you can be sure they impressed the bejayzus out of me.
Star Rating: ★★★✰✰ So, in case you haven’t heard, Tom Hanks wrote a book of short stories based around typewriters, or at least containing a typewriter in some shape or form in each story.
Star Rating: ★★★✰✰ A tragic event leads Abby Markstein to leave her life in Manhattan behind for the quiet and tranquility of Lewisburg, Indiana. She knows she’s probably just hiding from her problems, but for the time being she’s okay with it.
Today's Top Ten Tuesday (courtesy of That Artsy Reader Girl) is books that have been on my TBR list the longest. There's various reasons why I haven't read these books yet. Some of them got sidelined for something else, others I just keep passing on my bookshelf. I'm sure I'll get around to them all eventually...right?
Star Rating: ★★✰✰✰ The murder of housewife Barbara Ryan, a pencil jammed into her neck, starts Detective Danny O'Neill on the search for a serial killer on the streets of Dublin.
Star Rating: ★★★★★ I’ve had this book on my shelf for over a year. Whenever I finish a book and am trying to decide what to read next I always pick it up and read the blurb
Star Rating: ★★★✰✰ Julia is sure she has the perfect life. She has a loving husband and a wonderful son and she couldn’t be happier. But when her sister is murdered in Paris her life starts to unravel.
Star Rating: ★★★★★ I was a little hesitant about reading Eleanor Oliphant Is Completely Fine. I’d heard so many amazing things about it (mostly from Rick O’Shea’s Book Club) that I was sure there was no way it could live up to all the hype. Oh, how wrong I was.
