My Month in books|September 2019

It has been a bit of a lean month reading wise this month but thats ok. I don’t like to put to much pressure on myself and reaching and finishing my Goodreads challenge by the end of September is quite an achievment. A couple of blog tours this month a review for a small press and of course an indie author.

The Love Delusion Nicole Mostyn

Blurb LOVE IS . . . A MYTH?
That’s the belief of Frida McKenzie, devoted member of The Love Delusion movement, determined to cure humans of our ridiculous obsession with love.
But there’s something she’s forgotten…
When Frida finds a mysterious picture of herself with a man she barely knows, the certainties she has about her world begin to unravel.
What are the sinister roots of the cult that seems to have gripped humanity? Why can’t she remember anything about her life before – including the strange(ly attractive) man in that picture? And just when exactly did she take up fantasy role play?
As a battle approaches that’s been millennia in the making, it’s beginning to look like there’s only one question that really matters: if love conquers all, what happens when it’s gone?

Blurb SUFFER THE LITTLE CHILDREN…


A dark secret lies at the heart of the British government; a secret so appalling that they will kill to protect it.

Charlie Bars is back in London and has taken on a missing persons case. Easy money –or so he thinks. The man he is looking for is inextricably linked to the evil perpetrated in the Gingerbread Houses and as Charlie’s search progresses, he finds himself drawn into the seedy underbelly of the capital; a world of abuse, exploitation and deviancy that threatens to destroy his soul.

Others are looking for the missing man too and hunter soon becomes hunted as Charlie finds himself the target of an insane torturer haunted by the ghosts of his military past.

As he descends into the darkest depths of human depravity, Charlie desperately tries to stay out of prison, on the right side of his morality and, most importantly, alive as he seeks to uncover the buried secrets of the Gingerbread Houses.

But as the champagne corks pop, and the tinsel sparkles, Uncle T has news of his own to share… and it could change Daisy’s life forever…

    1. I set a realistic goal for myself because I very rarely read a book in a day but next year I may not bother. Good luck with yours I hope you reach it if not no biggie as long as you’ve read some good books x

      1. I totally agree with setting realistic goals. Mine is usual to read at least 1 book a month, which I usually have no problem with completing. This was the year I pushed myself a little to get through a few extra books by the end of year. The good news is I have been reading some good books. The bad news is I have been so busy that I can hardly find the time to sit down and read them. Haha! Book Nerd Problems.
