A Big Book Haul

This post contains affiliate links.book haul - hard pushed a midwife's story & little darlings held in handI’m just gonna put it out there; I have a problem, some might call it an addiction…  I can’t stop buying books! I’ve bought quite a few recently so I thought why not just do a big book haul.

I may as well share this new kinda haul right? I’ve been picking up books on my road trips so some are brand new & others are charity bargains I’ve found & clearly couldn’t resist.

Let’s get cracking shall we?

Gotta get Theroux this by Louis Theroux 

Right this one was on sale in Waterstones & I couldn’t resist. It kinda kick started this whole big book haul really. I love Louis Theroux documentaries just like everyone else & I’m quite partial to an autobiography. I’m not sure when I’m gonna read this one but I’ll probably leave it till I need a break in between thrillers.

In 1994 fledgling journalist Louis Theroux was given a one-off gig on Michael Moore’s TV Nation, presenting a segment on apocalyptic religious sects. Gawky, socially awkward and totally unqualified, his first reaction to this exciting opportunity was panic. But he’d always been drawn to off-beat characters, so maybe his enthusiasm would carry the day. Or, you know, maybe it wouldn’t…

Close to home by Cara Hunter

Honestly I can’t remember when I picked this up but I’ve clearly neglected it. I’ve added it to my to-read list now. It’s a crime thriller with a detective involved which I always enjoy so I’m rather excited to give it a read.

Someone took Daisy Mason.Someone YOU KNOW. Twists galore, a gripping race against time, and police characters you’ll love – if you were addicted to Broadchurch and Line of Duty, then CLOSE TO HOME is for you.How can a child go missing without a trace?

Then she was gone by Lisa Jewell

This is one I picked up at a charity book stand. It’s also a missing child thriller but from a parent’s perspective which I’m intrigued about. I’ve recently finished the family upstairs which will be in a future reading wrap up.

THEN
She was fifteen, her mother’s golden girl. She had her whole life ahead of her. And then, in the blink of an eye, Ellie was gone.
NOW
It’s been ten years since Ellie disappeared, but Laurel has never given up hope of finding her daughter.

The better sister by Alafair Burke

This is the second book I picked up at the charity stand because it just seems very intriguing. Two sisters who married the same man, who is then murdered, it just sounds very interesting to me.

When a prominent Manhattan lawyer is murdered, two estranged sisters—one the dead man’s widow, the other his ex—must set aside mistrust and old resentments … but can they escape their past?Keep your enemies close and your sister closer.

Those people by Louis Candlish

I was rather intrigued by this storyline because its about a suburban murder which always involves lots of secrets. I then found out Louis Candlish is a bestselling author so I’m even more excited to give it a read & see her take on a thriller.

From the internationally bestselling author of Our House, a new addictive novel of domestic suspense that dives into the world of suburban neighborhood drama and asks, “Could your neighbor make you angry enough to kill?”

The Chain by Adrian McKinty

I recently picked this up because I was drawn in by the cover. I know you shouldn’t judge a book by its cover but then I read the blurb & well I had to buy it. It sounds fascinating.

VICTIM.SURVIVOR. ABDUCTOR. CRIMINAL. YOU WILL BECOME EACH ONE.
YOUR PHONE RINGS. A STRANGER HAS KIDNAPPED YOUR CHILD.
TO FREE THEM YOU MUST ABDUCT SOMEONE ELSE’S CHILD.
YOUR CHILD WILL BE RELEASED WHEN YOUR VICTIM’S PARENTS KIDNAP ANOTHER CHILD.
IF ANY OF THESE THINGS DON’T HAPPEN: YOUR CHILD WILL BE KILLED.
YOU ARE NOW PART OF THE CHAIN “YOU ARE NOT THE FIRST. AND YOU WILL CERTAINLY NOT BE THE LAST.”

Hard pushed: A midwife’s story by Leah Hazard

This is one I’m really interested to read because I love reading medical style books. I just enjoy learning about people’s lives in the medical field. This is a Sunday times best seller so I think I’ll read this next.

No sleep for twenty hours. No food for ten. And a ward full of soon-to-be mothers… Midwives are there for us at some of the most challenging, empowering and defining moments of our lives. From heart-wrenching grief to the pure joy of a new-born baby, midwife Leah Hazard has seen it all. But life on the NHS front line, working within a system at breaking point, is more extreme than you could ever imagine.

Little darlings by Melanie Golding

This sounds like such a gripping suspense novel & I’m really excited to see if it lives up to its blurb. I’m a little worried it’s a little close to home as a new mum but I couldn’t resist picking it up when I saw it in Tesco.

Lauren’s hopes and dreams of being a new mom are shattered when she encounters a mother’s worst nightmare—someone is threatening to take her children if she leaves them alone. Everyone, from her doctor to her husband, thinks she’s imagining things. From the stark loneliness of returning home after giving birth to the confines of a psychiatric unit, Lauren’s desperation increases as no one will listen to her. Is she mad, or does she know something we don’t?

As you can tell I’ve collected quite a few books over the past few weeks so I have more than enough on my to-read list. I feel like I may need to branch out from the thriller genre but what can I say; I love a good thriller! I’ll let you guys know what I think of these reads in a future wrap up so keep an eye out if you are intrigued by any.

My first reading wrap up will be coming very soon so expect a lot more book content. Let me know if a not so regular book haul would be something you are interested in.
