3 on the 3rd – May Maybes

April got taken over by the longest book on my TBR – The Ink Black Heart by Robert Galbraith, so I am definitely playing catch up this month.

Here are my hopefuls for May:

The Never Game by Jeffrey Deaver

Picked this up at the week and looking forward to getting stuck in.

What it’s about?

From Goodreads:

The first installment in Jeffery Deaver’s Colter Shaw series — soon to be a CBS series starring Justin Hartley.

The son of a survivalist family, Colter Shaw is an expert tracker. Now he makes a living as a “reward seeker,” traveling the country to help police solve crimes and locate missing persons for private citizens.

“You’ve been abandoned. Escape if you can. Or die with dignity.”

Hired by the father of a young woman who has gone missing in Silicon Valley, Shaw’s search takes him into the dark heart of America’s cutthroat billion-dollar video-game industry. When another person goes missing, Shaw must Is a madman bringing a twisted video game to life?

Encountering eccentric designers, trigger-happy gamers, and ruthless tech titans, Shaw soon learns that he isn’t the only one on the someone is on his trail and closing fast….

Named a Crime Novel of the Year by The New York Times Book Review , The Never Game proves once more why “Deaver is a genius when it comes to manipulation and deception” (Associated Press

The One Hundred Years of Lenni and Margot by Mariin Cronin

This one has been on my TBR for way too long. I’m hoping to use it to tick off a prompt with a character’s name in the title.

What it’s about?

Life is short.

No-one knows that better than seventeen-year-old Lenni. But as she is about to learn, it’s not only what you make of life that matters, but who you share it with.

Dodging doctor’s orders, she joins an art class where she bumps into fellow patient Margot, a rebel-hearted eight-three-year-old from the next ward. Their bond is instant as they realize that together they have lived an astonishing one hundred years.

To celebrate their shared century, they decide to paint their life stories: of growing old and staying young, of giving joy, of receiving kindness, of losing love, of finding the person who is everything.

As their friendship deepens, it becomes vividly clear that life is not done with Lenni and Margot yet.

An extraordinary friendship. A lifetime of stories. Their last one begins here.

If I Can’t Have You by Charlotte Levin

I have heard so many good things about this one. And the striking cover means it is the perfect fit for a book with just text on the cover.

What it’s about?

If I Can’t Have You by Charlotte Levin is an all-consuming novel about loneliness, obsession and how far we go for the ones we love.

After fleeing Manchester for London, Constance Little attempts to put past tragedies behind her and make a fresh start. When she embarks on a relationship with the new doctor at the medical practice where she works, she’s convinced she’s finally found the love and security she craves.

Then he ends it.

But if life has taught her anything, it’s that if you love someone, you should never let them go.

That’s why for Constance Little, her obsession is only just beginning . . .

Happy Reading!
