Wednesdays are library days for my son and I. We go to baby rhyme time and then browse the shelves, I am really hoping that he grows up to love books and the library as much as I do!
Because I will be heading to the library every Wednesday, I will post what books I got in that week and give a bit of information about them!
If I post about any books that you have read, or have on your TBRs I would love to hear from you!
Without further ado, here are the books I got from the library this week!
Title: The Passengers
Author: Eleanor Limprecht
Synopsis: Sarah and Hannah are on a cruise from San Diego, California to Sydney Australia. Sarah, Hannah’s grandmother, is returning to the country of her birth, a place she hasn’t seen since boarding the USS Mariposa in 1945. She, along with countless other war brides, sailed across the Pacific to join the American Servicemen they’d married during World War II.
Hannah is the age Sarah was when she made her first journey, and in hearing Sarah tell the story of her life, realises the immensity of what her grandmother gave up.
The Passengers is a luminous novel about the journeys we undertake, the sacrifices we make and the heartache we suffer for love. It is about how we most long for what we have left behind. And it is about the past – how close it can feel – even after long passages of time.
This one I picked up and I just like the look of it and it sounds like a really lovely read, hopefully it turns out to be as good as I am imagining it to be!
Title: He Said/She Said
Author: Erin Kelly
Synopsis: In the summer of 1999, Kit and Laura travel to a festival in Cornwall to see a total eclipse of the sun. Kit is an eclipse chaser; Laura has never seen one before. Young and in love, they are certain this will be the first of many they’ll share.
But in the hushed moments after the shadow passes, Laura interrupts a man and a woman. She knows that she saw something terrible. The man denies it. It is her word against his.
The victim seems grateful. Months later, she turns up on their doorstep like a lonely stray. But as her gratitude takes a twisted turn, Laura begins to wonder—did she trust the wrong person?
15 years later, Kit and Laura are living under assumed names and completely off the digital grid: no Facebook, only rudimentary cell phones, not in any directories. But as the truth catches up to them, they realize they can no longer keep the past in the past.
This one has been on my list for the longest time, so when I came across it at the library, I didn’t hesitate to pick it up.
Title: The Boy
Author: Tami Hoag
Synopsis: A panic-stricken woman runs in the dead of night, battered and bloodied, desperate to find help. . . .
When Detective Nick Fourcade enters the home of Genevieve Gauthier outside the sleepy town of Bayou Breaux, Louisiana, the bloody crime scene that awaits him is both the most brutal and the most confusing he’s ever seen. Genevieve’s seven-year-old son, P.J., has been murdered by an alleged intruder, yet Genevieve is alive and well, a witness inexplicably left behind to tell the tale. There is no evidence of forced entry, not a clue that points to a motive. Meanwhile, Nick’s wife, Detective Annie Broussard, sits in the emergency room with the grieving Genevieve. A mother herself, Annie understands the emotional devastation this woman is going through, but as a detective she’s troubled by a story that makes little sense. Who would murder a child and leave the only witness behind?
When the very next day P.J.’s sometimes babysitter, thirteen-year-old Nora Florette, is reported missing, the town is up in arms, fearing a maniac is preying on their children. With pressure mounting from a tough, no-nonsense new sheriff, the media, and the parents of Bayou Breaux, Nick and Annie dig deep into the dual mysteries. But sifting through Genevieve Gauthier’s tangled web of lovers and sorting through a cast of local lowlifes brings more questions than answers. Is someone from Genevieve’s past or present responsible for the death of her son? Is the missing teenager, Nora, a victim, or something worse? Then fingerprints at the scene change everything when they come back to a convicted criminal: Genevieve herself.
The spotlight falls heavily on the grieving mother who is both victim and accused. Could she have killed her own child to free herself of the burden of motherhood, or is the loss of her beloved boy pushing her to the edge of insanity? Could she have something to do with the disappearance of Nora Florette, or is the troubled teenager the key to the murder? How far will Nick and Annie have to go to uncover the dark truth of the boy?
This one sounded so good when I read the synopsis, so I thought that I would give it a go!
I also picked up Dragonfly in Amber (Outlander #2) by Diana Gabaldon on Audiobook. There are two parts and it is going to take me a while to get through! But it will be much faster on audio than reading the paperback version for sure!
So those are the few books that I picked up this week at the library, I am allowed to have them for three weeks, so I am hoping to have at least one of them done by Wednesday when I head back in!
What books have you borrowed from your library lately? Have you read any of the books I have written about in today’s post? I would love to hear all about it, leave me a comment in the box below! I always read and respond to any comments left! 🙂
Thanks for popping in to check out my Library Haul for the week, and until next time, happy reading!
Love, Kim x
