The City of Brass | S. A. Chakraborty

That's more like it! This book is much more up my street, there is far off lands, folklore, magic and a strong female lead. The City Of Brass has got me hooked so I'm snuggled under a blanket hiding from the rain and an impending Monday morning with my nose stuck in a book 🤓📚📖😁

Well...this isn t my kind of book. It's not badly written I was just bored and life is too short to be stuck reading a book I couldn't get into or find myself caring what happened next. I think this is a case of historical fiction mismatch.

The Last | Hanna Jameson

Panpan

The back blurb gives the impression this book will be a thriller to rival The Shining but NO! It is a dull, confusing read. The story weaves itself to an odd conclusion that has left me thinking why did I bother reading this? The characters are blah & the plot is boring with little suspense when there is so much potential for the concept. It's been a long time since I've poopooed a book but I have to with this one, so disappointing.

Back to the commute this morning so picked up this thriller to start the day. Heard good reviews and a few mixed about this book. I do like thriller and a bit of apocalyptic survivor stories.

Nefertiti: A Novel | Michelle Moran
post image
Pickpick

Moran has taken what we know about Nefertiti & the 18th Dynasty to create a novel full of political intrigue with alliances that change suddenly whilst people are ruled by a zealous Pharaoh & narcissistic Queen. I was swept away by this book as Mutnodjmet recounts her time living in the shadow of Nefertiti; her innocence offers a balanced view to the cruelty of royalty & politics.

#StaycationInTimeSwap #Books #AncientEgypt #Nefertiti #History

JaneyWaneyB I couldn't fit in everything I wanted to say about this book so a few more comments from me...Moran uses description to help the reader imagine the beauty & culture of ancient Egypt. A must-read for anyone with a fondness for Ancient Egypt & a time we can only dream of. 2mo

Nefertiti: A Novel | Michelle Moran

Trying to keep cool on this August Bank Holiday, it's hit 30°c which for us Brits is a tad warm😓 but I've solved it...find a spot by the fan and read the afternoon away.

This book is good so far, I never knew Nefertiti was so manipulative and politically minded even at the age of 16. Hearing the story from the younger sister, Mutnodjmet, offers an innocence to the tale but how long till she is corrupted by the court?

Out of the Dark | Gregg Hurwitz

Another great Orphan X novel from Hurwitz. Lots of twists and turns as Orphan X narrows in on the truth around his first mission and why the President of the United States would want him dead for an assassination in 1997. Hurwitz writes with a pace that gets your heart thumping as X fights his way to a thrilling conclusion. With lots of action and suspense this is a fantastic series...how long before Netflix get their hands on the Nowhere Man?

After a day of cleaning I am going to read for a bit whilst having a cuppa. Really enjoying this instalment; Orphan X is a great lead with a Jason Bourne feel to his skill set & damaged soul but with a different motive - to kill the President!

Cor blimey! What a jolly good book that was.
Dear Mrs Bird is a book all about the power of words and small acts of kindness to strangers. AJ Pearce does a wonderful job of setting the scene and immersing you in 1940's Britain. The characters are well written and very loveable. This is a dear little book that makes you want to get your pen and stationary out to write copious amounts of letters.

I thoroughly enjoyed this book. Each Queen is written by a different YA author giving this a book of feeling like the personal diaries of the 6 wives. Each chapter is concluded with Henry's view on the marriage. The facts and dates are there but you are more intrigued by the voices and how it must have felt at that time to be in the favour (and then out) with the most powerful king.

And the Mountains Echoed | Khaled Hosseini

Pickpick

A heartbreaking story of family, life, love, loss & discovery. Starting in Afghanistan the story of a brother & his little sister who are torn apart travels through time to Pakistan, Greece, France & America. Those touched by that moment in time tell their own stories of complicated family lives & how they've been shaped by those experiences. Hosseini writes beautifully & with such feeling, I am yet to be disappointed by one of his books.

A good instalment of the Rivers of London series. Aaronovitch always does his research and cleverly uses history to shape his stories. I like the characters and how the plot flows from one book to the next. The only thing with this book it felt a little disjointed in places and I often felt like I'd skipped a page as suddenly the subject changed or the action began. For that reason it is a 3.5 🌟 review for this book.

Another fantastic instalment from Bryndza. This series has great characters that I've really come to like. There is a realistic feel to the investigation which makes the story grip you.
