‘The Night that changed Everything’ by Laura Tait & Jimmy Rice

image

Blurb: People say it takes half the time you’ve been in a relationship with someone to get over them. Rebecca and Ben thought they’d never have to test that theory – they were happy, in love, solid. They are perfectly matched: Ben is thoughtful, kind, and does all the cooking; Rebecca is fun and spontaneous, and often thinks about doing the cleaning but never actually does. Neither of them predicted an encounter with the past that would tear their relationship apart. 546 days of heartache, laughter, first dates and several twists of fate await…

Expected publication: March 24th 2016

‘Salt to the Sea’ by Ruta Sepetys

image

Blurb: ‘The author of Between Shades of Gray returns to WWII in this epic novel that shines a light on one of the war’s most devastating—yet unknown—tragedies. In 1945, World War II is drawing to a close in East Prussia, and thousands of refugees are on a desperate trek toward freedom, almost all of them with something to hide. Among them are Joana, Emilia, and Florian, whose paths converge en route to the ship that promises salvation, the Wilhelm Gustloff. Forced by circumstance to unite, the three find their strength, courage, and trust in each other tested with each step closer toward safety. Just when it seems freedom is within their grasp, tragedy strikes. Not country, nor culture, nor status matter as all ten thousand people aboard must fight for the same thing: survival.’

Expected publication: February 2nd 2016

What I am reading next:

‘The Dead House’ by Dawn Kurtagich

image.jpeg

Blurb: Part-psychological thriller, part-urban legend, this is an unsettling narrative made up of diary entries, interview transcripts, film footage transcripts and medical notes. Twenty-five years ago, Elmbridge High burned down. Three people were killed and one pupil, Carly Johnson, disappeared. Now a diary has been found in the ruins of the school. The diary belongs to Kaitlyn Johnson, Carly’s identical twin sister. But Carly didn’t have a twin . . . Re-opened police records, psychiatric reports, transcripts of video footage and fragments of diary reveal a web of deceit and intrigue, violence and murder, raising a whole lot more questions than it answers. Who was Kaitlyn and why did she only appear at night? Did she really exist or was she a figment of a disturbed mind? What were the illicit rituals taking place at the school? And just what did happen at Elmbridge in the events leading up to ‘the Johnson Incident’? Chilling, creepy and utterly compelling, THE DEAD HOUSE is one of those very special books that finds all the dark places in your imagination, and haunts you long after you’ve finished reading.

  1. Something Beautiful sounds really good! And I have been wanting to get a copy of The Dead House and Salt To The Sea ever since I first heard about them. The wait for the second isn’t too long anymore now! 😀

    Happy reading! Here’s my WWW.
