What Have I recently Finished Reading?
Q by Christina Dalcher released tomorrow, April 30th.
Having read Vox I was very interested to read the author’s next book. If you enjoyed Vox then you will also like this, similar in construction and setting, it’s another very readable dystopian story with an all too believable starting point.
The Mist by Ragnor Jonasson
The third and final in the Hidden Iceland series and completing the story of Hulda by going back to the beginning. Similar to book two we have the story and details of a crime running along side the ever unfolding back story of Hulda. Ending with her involvement and investigation of the case. Still working out how my review will look for this one.
So Lucky by Dawn O’Porter
I enjoyed this book. Not what I thought it was going to be but I found it enjoyable and with a great sense of humour but also heart.
Witty and engaging plus with lots of dialogue, made for a quick read. Would recommend. I believe the paperback release has been put back to July.

What I Will Be Reading Next.
The first book in the Walter Presents library: a fast-paced comic mystery enriched by a deep love of books
Readers always find themselves in a book, one way or another
In the small town of Crozon in Brittany, a library houses manuscripts that were rejected for publication: the faded dreams of aspiring writers. Visiting while on holiday, young editor Delphine Despero is thrilled to discover a novel so powerful that she feels compelled to bring it back to Paris to publish it.
The book is a sensation, prompting fevered interest in the identity of its author – apparently one Henri Pick, a now-deceased pizza chef from Crozon. Sceptics cry that the whole thing is a hoax: how could this man have written such a masterpiece? An obstinate journalist, Jean-Michel Rouche, heads to Brittany to investigate.
By turns funny and moving, The Mystery of Henri Pick is a fast-paced comic mystery enriched by a deep love of books – and of the authors who write them.
I thought I might have a slower reading month for May but apparently not!!! 🙂
