I’m a part of some fantastic blog tours later in March some lots of my reading time is going towards those. But I’ve picked out three more maybes to add to the TBR pile for this month and hopefully tick off a few more Popsugar categories.
Dear Martin by Nic Stone
I’ve heard great things about this book and received a copy through Random Acts of Kindness last year. I’ve really made a conscious effort to include more diversity in the authors I read – especially the YA fiction and this book was on lots of diversity/BLM lists last year.
What it’s about?
Justyce McAllister is top of his class and set for the Ivy League—but none of that matters to the police officer who just put him in handcuffs. And despite leaving his rough neighborhood behind, he can’t escape the scorn of his former peers or the ridicule of his new classmates. Justyce looks to the teachings of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. for answers. But do they hold up anymore? He starts a journal to Dr. King to find out.
Then comes the day Justyce goes driving with his best friend, Manny, windows rolled down, music turned up—way up, sparking the fury of a white off-duty cop beside them. Words fly. Shots are fired. Justyce and Manny are caught in the crosshairs. In the media fallout, it’s Justyce who is under attack.
The Catch by T. M. Logan
After much discussion with my Insta reading group everyone one agreed that the glass on this cover is definitely cracked and possibly chipped sonI am going to read this thriller for the something broken on the cover prompt. It’s over 400npages long bit the chapters seem quite short so I’m hoping it’s quite a fast paced thriller.
What it’s about?
Ed is delighted to meet his twenty-three year old daughter’s fiancé for the first time. Ryan appears to be the perfect future son-in-law. There’s just one problem. There’s something off about Ryan. Something hidden in the shadows behind his eyes. And it seems that only Ed can see it.
Terrified that his daughter is being drawn in by a psychopath, Ed sets out to uncover her fiancé’s dark past – while keeping his own concealed. But no-one believes him. And the more he digs, the more he alienates her and the rest of the family who are convinced that Ryan is ‘the one’.
Ed knows different. For reasons of his own, he knows a monster when he sees one…
The Jigsaw Man by Nadine Matheson
Published in February, the lovely folks at HQ have sent me a proof copy of The Jigsaw Man. It sounds fantastic and has a very sinister black and white cover white is perfect for another Popsugar prompt.
What it’s about?
When body parts are found on the banks of the River Thames in Deptford, DI Angelica Henley is tasked with finding the killer. Eerie echoes of previous crimes lead Henley to question Peter Olivier, aka The Jigsaw Killer, who is currently serving a life sentence for a series of horrific murders.
When a severed head is delivered to Henley’s home, she realises that the copycat is taking a personal interest in her and that the victims have not been chosen at random.
To catch the killer, Henley must confront her own demons – – and when Olivier escapes from prison, she finds herself up against not one serial killer, but two.
I managed to read one of last month’s selection and am half way through a second. Well have to see how I do this month with these.
