I’ve fallen a bit behind on my Popsugar Reading Challenge so this month I am going to try and tick off as many prompts as possible. With that in mind, I’ve picked three books from my TBR that will fit a few of the categories.
They Found Him Dead by Georgette Heyer
I have read some of Heyer’s Georgian romances but never read any of the mysteries. I pick up a couple in a charity shop and they have been sat gathering dust ever since. I’ve picked this for the book that’s been in your TBR for the longest as to be honest I cannot remember how long it’s been there!
What it’s about?
It is the morning after wealthy Silas Kane’s sixtieth birthday party – a celebration that brings to light a number of familial controversies.
When Kane is found dead at the foot of a cliff, the assumption is that he simply lost his way in the fog and fell by accident.
But the subsequent death of his nephew and heir and threats on the life of the third Kane, the newest heir, raises obvious suspicion, and the redoubtable investigative skills of Superintendent Hannasyde prove critical once again.
The Salt Path by Raynor Winn
This is a book that everyone seems to have read and I must admit isn’t something I would usually go for. But I have heard of lots of good things and it definitely counts as a book with a mineral in the title.
What it’s about?
Just days after Raynor learns that Moth, her husband of 32 years, is terminally ill, their home and livelihood is taken away. With nothing left and little time, they make the brave and impulsive decision to walk the 630 miles of the sea-swept South West Coast Path, from Somerset to Dorset, via Devon and Cornwall.
They have almost no money for food or shelter and must carry only the essentials for survival on their backs as they live wild in the ancient, weathered landscape of cliffs, sea and sky. Yet through every step, every encounter, and every test along the way, their walk becomes a remarkable journey.
The Salt Path is an honest and life-affirming true story of coming to terms with grief and the healing power of the natural world. Ultimately, it is a portrayal of home, and how it can be lost, rebuilt, and rediscovered in the most unexpected ways.
The Man I Didn’t Marry by Anna Bell
The lovely folks at HQ Stories sent me a proof this and it looks like a fun read. And would definitely tick of the book about forgetting prompt.
What it’s about?
What happens when the man she married can’t remember her?
Ellie has the perfect life: a happy marriage, a gorgeous daughter and a baby on the way. But when her husband Max develops amnesia, he forgets everything about the last five years . . . including their relationship.
Now the man she said ‘I do’ to has become a stranger, and she has no idea why. Yet Ellie is determined to reconnect and find herMax again – he has to be in there somewhere, right?
As they get to know one another afresh, Ellie finds herself seeing Max clearly for the first time. But then she discovers that before his memory loss, Max was keeping a huge secret from her. Will their new beginning prove to be a false start, just as it seemed they might fall in love all over again?
Have a great month bookworms!
