BOOKS : My To be read pile (TBR 01)

Monday, 11 January 2016

Without realising it my TBR pile has grown. I have a few books that I need to make my way through, so I thought if I shared them with you then it may give me that push to finish them quicker! So lets just get stuck in shall we?

THE MINIATURIST by Jessie Burton
If my memory serves me well, when this book was first released it was high up in the book charts for a while! So I am hoping for a good read. I don't often read books that are based in the past, often opting for more modern storylines which in some cases I can relate to. I'm looking forward to trying something different as this is based in Amsterdam in the 17th Century. Looking online it seems to have mixed reviews, but I'm hoping it will be one I will enjoy personally. It's nothing like anything I have read before, but I am up for a challenge. Perhaps it will make me more inclined to read books based in other time periods and broaden my reading options in the future!

I LET YOU GO by Claire Mackintosh
Thrillers are definitely my favourite genre of book to read at the moment. The blurb  on the back states that if you liked Gone Girl & Girl on the train then you will probably enjoy this psychological thriller, so I am guessing I will enjoy it. A tragic accident occurs in Jennas life, desperate to move on and get away from it all she moves to a remote cottage on the welsh coast.  Despite memories of the accident still at the back of her mind, Jenna can see the light and happiness for the future, unfortunately her past wants to catch up with her and the consequences may not be that great. I haven't even started reading it and I am gripped already! This will possibly be the first book of the bunch that I crack on and start reading to be honest.

These are two books which were gifted by Jenny this Christmas in the Secret Santa Book swap arranged by Lorna. Again in the thriller genre, Rober Naysmith is a businessman with a bit of a secret.. He is also a serial killer. Dective Inspector Harland is assigned to the case. The problem is that Naysmith has no motive behind these killings, he choses his victims at random. If you make eye contact with him then you are part of 'the game' and you wont have long to live. Another set of books which I am eager to get reading. I did plan to take these with me to Duabi over Christmas but I was just too busy to even think about reading! Going by other books of this theme there is a high chance I will be hooked on these.  Perhaps the others in the series will feature in a future TBR Pile.

LIAR LIAR by M. J. Arlidge
This is actually the fourth book of a Crime Thriller series I started in 2014. I think very similar in style to the Fergus McNeil books mentioned above, (hence why I am sure I will enjoy them) Throughout the  series of books by M J Arlidge, we've followed Detective Insector Grace solve the cases that have been thrown at her, this book will be no different. I cant really say too much as its a book deep within the series, so if it's something you think you may enjoy I suggest picking up the first in the series Eeny Meeny and give it a go.

ONE DAY by David Nicholls.
This is a book that has been raved and raved about, it even got turned into a film. I read US by David Nicholls for book club, but wasn't too much of a fan, so you are probably wondering why I chose to pick this up. Well it was on the Donation shelf in my local Tesco so I got this practically brand new copy for £1. It would have been rude to leave it there, plus I've been informed by Lorna that One day is much better than 'Us' and I thought I would give it a chance. I believe the plot of this book focuses on what happens between Emma & Dexter. They meet on the night of their university graduation, however after that night they have to go their separate ways. One Day looks at what each of them are getting up to on the anniversary of that date each year, whether it be together or separately I am assuming! I'm looking forward to reading it and finding out what all the hype is about!

So that's my TBR pile, have you read any of these? Do you have any books lying around waiting for you to pick up and start reading? I you fancy finding out what I thought about some of the previous books I've read then head on over to this blog post.

Much love,
