BT – The Never Game by Jeffery Deaver.

Hello my lovely book geeks,

How are you all?

Today I am hosting day number four on the blog tour for the legendary author Jeffery Deaver and his outstanding new book, The Never Game.

Let’s go….

👤Blurb: A student kidnapped from the park.

Nineteen-year-old Sophie disappears one summer afternoon. She wakes up to find herself locked inside a derelict warehouse, surrounded by five objects. If she uses them wisely, she will escape her prison. Otherwise she will die.

An investigator running out of time.

Sophie’s distraught father calls in the one man who can help find his daughter: unique investigator Colter Shaw. Raised in the wilderness by survivalist parents, he is an expert tracker with a forensic mind trained to solve the most challenging cases. But this will be a test even for him.

A killer playing a dangerous game.

Soon a blogger called Henry is abducted – left to die in the dark heart of a remote forest – and the whole case gets turned on its head. Because this killer isn’t following the rules; he’s changing them. One murder at a time…

👤My Thoughts: Jeffery Deaver is such a huge name in the thriller genre that it’s hard not to have heard of him and his work. I shamefully however, have never read one of his books. Well, I have now obviously, but you get what I mean.

The Never Game is the start a brand new investigative series starring survivalist Colton Shaw. Shaw a very clever and self-aware man makes a living by helping out on missing people cases that offer monetary rewards. We are introduced and given little flashbacks into his life over the years to let us start to build up a relationship with him. I found him to be very endearing and I am really excited to move onto the next chapter and find out more about him. He is an original and refreshing protagonist, which is something we actually needed in this genre without realising.

Plot wise I can’t fault The Never Game. A strategic and intense line leading to an unforgettable and solid bomb. Carefully researched and superbly written. It shoves us into the gaming industry with its underlying darkness and one very dangerous criminal. One who puts his victims into survival scenarios based on a game millions are playing online called The Mystery Man.

Now, this, I actually worried about. I’m not a gamer, I know nothing of the gamer life or games themselves. Yes, I may have teenage boys who own every console available and are big into the gaming world, but my knowledge on the subject is very minimalistic. I think a lot of people will get wary of this and it may put them off from reading. For me though I didn’t need to worry. Deaver has researched well and gives us step-by-step information to help us along our way into this unknown technological world. In fact, I learned a bit about it too. My kids think I’m stupid and looked at me strangely when I thought I was able to communicate with them about it, but obviously not and I still know nothing🤦🏻‍♀️😂

No, honestly it’s fine. Do not be put off by it.

All in all I recommend this book to you 100% it is raw, emotional, complex and extremely excitingly deceptive. It’s super fast-paced and grips dangerously hard from the off. The twists are there in full to throw you off and the suspense is an absolute killer.

I could not put it down at all! No lie, the only time I did was to go and make a cup of tea when it got a bit slow in the middle. It certainly picked back up though and the double plot intertwined gracefully and dramatic. It’s one of those reads were you think you’re clever and see what’s going on and to happen only to end up getting your eye wiped so hard and bad you end up with a bloody sty!

Go read it.

BT – Labyrinth Junction by Hayley Davenport-Smith.

Happy Tuesday everyone.

We’re here today on day one of the blog tour for the absolutely amazing children’s book, Labyrinth Junction!

Let’s jump right in…

🐉Blurb: A magical land. A prison in the sky. An underwater city.

Little does Ben envisage this is what awaits him as he escapes the clutches of two bullies and climbs into the dark and gloomy cave. That’s when he discovers it, deep inside…Labyrinth Junction, a gateway to other worlds! Once he gets past the old witch standing guard, he’s led down a dark tunnel by a peculiar talking dog into the strange and magical land of Numblebrook and his adventures truly begin!

With his life in peril and trapped in Numblebrook, Ben befriends a pretty orphan girl called Amy and her pet dragon. Together, they and the strange Moonbeamer people set off on a series of dangerous missions in an effort to solve a riddle, free the land of the evil King and get Ben back home.

Labyrinth Junction is an exciting and fast moving fantasy story full of perilous adventures and heart warming friendships. It is a story about the sheer bravery and determination of a young boy who is prepared to risk his life if it means finding his way home. It will appeal to 8 – 12 year olds with a taste for adventure and excitement.

🐉My Thoughts: First of all can I just say that the cover to Labyrinth Junction is utterly fantastic! I absolutely adore it. For a children’s book I just found it so much more endearing and something more child like which would make children want to read it more. I don’t even care if that doesn’t make sense it makes sense to me 🤦🏻‍♀️😂

If you have younger children who love adventures and magic and puzzles and dragons and witches and weirdness then this is your book. Labyrinth Junction is a fast-paced, jam packed, clever and spell-bounding read.

I’m a 36 year old mum of two teenage boys and I absolutely loved every minute of it. I even wanted them to read it, but of course it’s not a games console or a phone. Such a shame! I wish I had this in their library when they were younger because it for sure would have been one of their favourites.

When it comes to younger readers keeping them involved or interested can be a very hard thing. I’ll give HDS a huge pat on the back here because she has managed to produce excitement in every page. She has managed to give our children a captivating book of wonder and intrigue. It’s honestly a fantastic children’s book. I cannot recommend it to you more.

I’m so looking forward to seeing what happens when we pass Labyrinth Junction again.

Shout out to HDS herself for giving us and our children something wonderful and to the lovely Anne over at LCDP for inviting me onto the tour.

BT – This is Me by Shari Low.

I’d say good morning you lovely book geeks of the world, but I think a simple hello is best as it’s Saturday and a lot of you are still in bed. To the rest of you who aren’t or are at work. I salute you and give you full permission to have a nice bottle of wine when you get home. Don’t forget to pair it with Shari Lows amazing new novel, This is Me! It’s honestly the perfect de-stressing match.

Not even gonna lie that was a smooth opening into getting you to buy this book 😂 Wine is always a winner! PR at its best there 👀🤦🏻‍♀️

Anyway, sorry, I’m being a knob and going on.

I am here today bringing you the book details, an exclusive extract and my thoughts on what can only be described as a controversial and seriously entertaining read.

It’s day three on leg one of Shari Lows, This is Me Blog Tour and I’m The Book Geek Wears Pajamas. Let’s go…

💠Blurb: This is… Denise.

Married to Ray, her first and only love, Denise has never for one moment regretted putting the husband she idolised on a pedestal above everyone and everything else. But, after forty years of marriage, he is gone, leaving Denise to discover that their perfect marriage was fatally flawed. Now she faces a future alone, but first she must face the betrayals of the past.

This is… Claire.

The estranged daughter of Denise, the woman who put her husband before her children, Claire took the opposite path and devoted her life to raising her family, sacrificing her marriage along the way. With her teenage sons about to flee the nest, she realises she may have left it too late to find her own happy ever after.

This is the story of two women, both alone, both cautionary tales of one of motherhood’s biggest decisions.

Who is more important, your partner or your children? And what happens if you make the wrong choice?

💠Extract:

💠My Thoughts: By the now the term emotional rollercoaster has become a reviewing cliche. It seems every book you read a review on is one. God, I’m probably guilty of this too so don’t be offended by it.

To me the term emotional rollercoaster is one I don’t use lightly. I do have to be up and down and literally shook with a headache. I want my head getting smashed from side to side into the safety bars of the ride. And I want the thrill, fear, laughter, love, hate, chills, nausea and absolute honestly and truth of the wind! I want it all! There aren’t many authors who can achieve such a head smashing. Shari Low is one of those in which we can rely on to give us exactly that. The emotional rollercoaster with a side of weak bladder laughter to balance it out.

This is Me is poignant, honest, funny and thought provoking book. Not going to lie it has a slow start, but it is totally worth the time invested into it. Once you’re in, you’re in!

It’s hard to write a review when you are faced with identifiable characters you know. This allows you to emerge yourself deeply into the read and the emotions of both protagonists. Whether you agree with them in heart or even morally or not. You will always be empathetic and you will always question why people choose the paths and people they do. Question priorities and why they differ from one another. It becomes real life. And when fiction becomes non-fiction then you know that’s a damn good read!

Life is a balancing act that none of us ever get right at first. This is Me is proof of that.

Once upon a time she met a guy, got engaged after a week, and twenty-something years later she lives near Glasgow with her husband, a labradoodle, and two teenagers who think she’s fairly embarrassing except when they need a lift.

BT – You, Me and the Movies by Fiona Collins.

Hiya, you lot!

Did you all have an amazing bank holiday weekend? Are you all sunburned and still a bit hungover? Don’t worry we’re all in the same boat.👀💊👍🏻

Today is day one on Fiona Collins’s blog tour for her upcoming release, You, Me and the Movies.

I love a bit of Fiona Collins me so I was made up to get asked to come onto to the tour and read the book. She has had me crossing my legs in laughter far too many times. You mothers and older ladies will know what I mean by that 😉

Shall we get started?

🎬Blurb: Two people. Ten classic films. A love story you’ll never forget.

Arden has just started university when she meets Mac – and quickly falls head over heels for the handsome, charismatic film lecturer. Their love affair is dramatic, exciting and all-consuming; the sort of thing you only see in the movies.

It couldn’t last. But thirty years later, leading a very different life, Arden is visiting a friend in hospital when she suddenly comes across the man she never forgot. Badly injured in an accident, Mac can only make brief references to the classic films they once watched together: Casablanca, A Star is Born, Pretty Woman among others… and they make Arden remember everything.

The bittersweet memories of their relationship help Arden re-connect with the world in a way she no longer thought was possible. But will a movie-worthy love ever be hers again?

🎬My Thoughts: You know me by now and I will always tell you the truth with my reviews. Blog tour or not. The truth is the truth.

You, me and the movies is unfortunately not my favourite. I see it being an absolute smash and a book most readers will have on their TBR. It’s beautiful, it’s fun, it’s sensitive and poignant. It’s a clear winner for people who want a clever and original love story with well thought out characters. I do in all honestly want you to read this book! Seriously pre-order it or grab the ebook now and see for yourself.

Obviously you’re going to want to know my issues with it after that aren’t you?

So, for me it is not a book you can just casually pick up and read. It’s one you really have to give time and effort too. I wouldn’t say it’s long winded, but you do have to give it time. When it comes to this genre that is just not for me. I don’t want to have to try if you get me. I just want easy, none thinking reading.

I am also seriously no movie buff! Especially with the classics and basically any movie, so I did get lost a bit with some of the movie details and references.

I also couldn’t fully connect with Arden and for me I need that connection.

See, it’s not even bad. It’s just me being me. But I can’t not tell you that because it’s a blog tour post and review.

Anyway, read the other reviews they are hot shit! And one of the best things about it for me is that it has given me reason to have one super massive movie marathon. I do intent to watch the ten films from the book! Oh, and for sure in Arden and Mac’s order. I also will re-read You, Me and the Movies again after that movie marathon and when the paperback is released. Who knows I might eat my words. I’ve done it before haven’t I?

Right now it’s a 3/5 star book for me and that in itself is brilliant!

So if you’re wanting a nostalgic, intense, original, tearfully funny read with a dramatic love story and a huge slice of movie pie then this is definitely your book. Make sure you have your popcorn, tissues and wine ready, you’re going to need them all.

BT – A View to a Kilt by Wendy Holden.

Happy Sunday fellow book geeks of the world. Today we are donning our kilts and reading our way through a little sneaky peak of the fabulous, A View to a Kilt by the one and only Wendy Holden!!

Wendy Holden though please? Queen of RomCom. Queen of Chick-Lit. Queen of the bestsellers! Get that crown Wendy babe 👑

Shall we get started?

♥️💙Blurb: London’s most glamorous glossy magazine is in trouble. Advertising revenues are non existent, and if editor Laura Lake can’t pick them up, she’s out of a job.

According to those in the know, Scotland is having a fashion moment. Haggis tempura is on Michelin-starred menus, smart spas are offering porridge facials, and a chain of eco-hotels is offering celebrity bagpipe lessons. So Laura’s off to a baronial estate in the Scottish Highlands to get a slice of this ultra-high-end market.

It’s supposed to be gorgeous, glitzy and glamorous. But intrigue follows Laura like night follows day. And at Glenravish Castle – a shooting lodge fit for a billionaire – Laura finds herself hunting for a scoop that won’t just save her job, it could save her life…

💙♥️Extract:

💙♥️My Mini Thoughts: If you haven’t already been introduced to Laura Lake then you have seriously been missing out! She is honestly one of the best chick lit characters around. Don’t worry if you haven’t though because you can jump straight in here with A View to a Kilt and read it as a stand-alone.

As always with a Wendy Holden read you end up completely engrossed in her words. With a decent character set up and a plot that seems pretty straight forward, it in fact is not and actually laughs in your face. It then calls you stupid and drags you back into the read with a bit of mystery and a lot of smirking! Can’t beat a book that not only smirks at you but has you smirking right back at it. Very clever writing. Well Done to our Wend on that one 👍🏻 thoroughly enjoyable!

A View to a Kilt is the escapism we all need and deserve. It’s funny, it’s bold, it’s crazy, it’s fast-paced and it’s bloody golden. Shit, I mean tartan!

BT – One Minute Later by Susan Lewis.

Happy Thursday book geeks. I hope you’re all well and have had a good week so far. Don’t worry we’re nearly at the weekend 🙏🏻🍷

Anyway, today I am honoured to be finishing what can only be described as a beautiful tour for the fabulous author, Susan Lewis and her newest release, One Minute Later.

Before we start though let me tell you something. This is the worst review I have ever written! I feel ashamed for myself, but you know sometimes when you just go – ahh eff it? Yeah well that.

Happy days as they say 🤦🏻‍♀️

💙Blurb: With a high-flying job, a beautiful apartment and friends whose lives are as happy as her own, Vivienne Shager is living the dream. Then, on the afternoon of Vivi’s twenty-seventh birthday, one catastrophic minute changes everything.

Forced to move back to the small seaside town where she grew up, Vivi remembers the reasons she left. The secrets, lies and questions that now must be answered before it’s too late. But the answers lie in thirty years in the past…

Shelley Raynor’s family home, Deerwood Farm, has always been a special place until darkness strikes at its heart. When Vivi’s and Shelley’s worlds begin to entwine, it only takes a moment for the truth to unravel all of their lives.

💙My Thoughts: Ok, this is hard. I’m sitting here and have been trying to write this review for so long and you know what? I just can’t. Every time I go to say something I end up giving something away. I hate spoilers so much. You know what though I’ll try my best to give you something 🙈

Ok, so you know those books that sort of just grip you by the throat and leave you a bit breathless because of how real and raw it is?

Those books that stay with you and have you thinking? The real life books? The thought provoking ones? The powerful ones…

Well, this is one of those books. In fact, it could be a runner for too spot for these books. No word of a lie.

One Minute Later is a beautifully written tale of love, tragedy, family, love, secrets, self-worth and how we see and live life. It shows us that no matter what life can be seriously hard. To me though the most important part was the HUGE importance of organ donation it gives you. Like it or not it’s there and it’s serious food for thought. It’s an amazing thing to bring more awareness too.

Oh my god this is so shit isn’t it? 🤦🏻‍♀️😂

Do you know what? Just read it please. I promise you won’t be disappointed. You may struggle slightly at first with the connection between Vivi and Shelley like I did. You may not. However, if you do, let it go and carry on because it will all come together for you. And honestly when it does it will hurt your heart in both happiness and sadness. It blows you away it really does.

It’s a stunning read.

BT – With or Without You by Shari Low.

Hello my loves, how are you all?

So, the weekend is almost upon us and that can only mean one thing? Lazy weekend book reading bliss is coming.

Of course we always need a new read don’t we? So, for all you Romance/Women’s Fiction/ChickLit/Contemporary fans out there, and to be fair all you who aren’t, but are willing to give anything a try, I have the absolute perfect book for you.

🧡Blurb: Have you ever made a life-changing decision and then wondered if you made the right one…?

When Liv and Nate walked up the aisle, Liv knew she was marrying the one, her soul mate and her best friend. Six years later, it feels like routine and friendship is all they have left in common. What happened to the fun, the excitement, the lust, the love?

In the closing moments of 1999, Liv and Nate decide to go their separate ways, but at the last minute, Liv wavers. Should she stay or should she go?

Over the next twenty years we follow the parallel stories to discover if Liv’s life, heart and future have been better with Nate… Or without him?

BT – Mummy’s Favourite by Sarah Flint.

Guys, it’s Tuesday, it’s proper cold and I have a spine chilling book to show you all about on today’s tour.

I’m jumping straight in…

👁Blurb: Buried in a woodland grave are a mother and her child.

One is alive. One is dead.

It is one of the most harrowing cases to hit D.C. Charlie Stafford’s department in years. Then more pairs of mothers and children go missing – and it’s Charlie’s job to find them.

Soon, Charlie is hunting down a brutal serial killer with a twisted mind. But as she closes in on the culprit, she realises she’s in more danger than she thought…

He’s watching. He’s waiting. Who’s next?

👁Extract:

👁My Thoughts: A compelling dark and utterly horrifying read.

As a mother this book absolutely put the shits up me, I’m not even going to lie. It is dire. It is excruciatingly evil and has you gripped by the throat from the off.

For a debut book I have to say Mummy’s Favourite has certainly made a huge impact in the book community and on me. Sarah Flint has Meticulously given us every single thing we want and love in a crime/serial killer read. For that she has already proven she will be an author to definitely watch out for.

It’s honestly a read so shocking, original and gritty. Chilling, engaging and suspenseful. Dark and utterly disturbing. After all that badness, is it wrong for me to say fantastic?

I can’t wait to see what D.C. Stafford gets up to next.

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

BT – The Day of the Accident by Nuala Ellwood.

Seriously can you believe it’s Monday already? No need at all is there? 😩👎🏻

To cheer you up and out of your Monday blues, I have a book so good it is sitting higher than higher on my book of 2019 list. Seriously, it’s going to be hard to catch it up.

So, I have the honour to be hosting and starting off the blog tour for Nuala Ellwood’s brand new release, The Day After the Accident.

Also, Hi everybody, I hope you’re all doing ok today? Thanks for popping over. Sorry for being ignorant 🤦🏻‍♀️

♦️Blurb: They say you killed…BUT WHAT IF THEY’RE WRONG?

Sixty seconds after she wakes from a coma, Maggie’s world is torn apart

The police tell her that her daughter Elspeth is dead. That she drowned when the car Maggie had been driving plunged into the river. Maggie remembers nothing.

When Maggie begs to see her husband Sean, the police tell her that he has disappeared. He was last seen on the day of her daughter’s funeral.

What really happened that day at the river?

Where is Maggie’s husband?

And why can’t she shake the suspicion that somewhere, somehow, her daughter is still alive?

♦️My Thoughts: A slow fumbling suspenseful start that cascades so fast into a deep night-terror so dark and soul destroying it has you fighting hard to get out of it.

A violating, fearsome and mind challenging read with a complex plot and a mother lost in it all just trying to do what any mother would for her child – everything!

To be totally honest with you here, I was pretty scared going into this read as I am a HUGE advocate for Nuala’s debut novel, My Sister’s Bones and was worried it could not be matched or bettered. By the way, if you’ve not already read it, I seriously recommend it to you it’s fabulous!

Anyway, I should definitely not have worried because with a skill, precision and mind of absolute horror Nuala has done it again. You are taken into the dark from the start and gripped, kicked, shocked and left to digest a twist so crazy you will be thinking of it for a very long time after you’ve finished.

Clever. Original. Inventive. Exhilarating.
