What I Am Reading Next (TALK OF THE TOWN #49)

Welcome back to Talk of the Town, a weekly link-up I am co-hosting with Shaz from Jera’s Jamboree. We’d love you to share your book related blog posts with us.  Please visit my Talk of the Town page if you are unsure of how a link-up works. We are looking forward to reading your blog posts.

I’ve received some fantastic book post during the last couple of days. Thank you so much dear publishers! As part of today’s TALK OF THE TOWN post, I am sharing my next few reads with you.


This book is a little out of my comfort zone (it’s a cross over a few genres – from literary fiction to science-fiction and a few others), but as soon as I read the description for this book, I was utterly compelled and eager to give it a go. I am currently reading this book and am about halfway through. It’s amazing!! I will be sharing my review in the coming weeks.

LOST for WORDS by Stephanie Butland

It was the tagline of this book that drew me in straight away: “You can trust a book to keep your secret… Plus, the cover is gorgeous (I can’t share it on here yet, as it has not been revealed, but keep an eye out on 19th February :-)). I cannot wait to start reading this book.

When I Was Invisible by Dorothy Koomson

I’ve heard quite a few positive things about Dorothy’s writing, but so far, I haven’t read any of her novels so I am very excited to be delving into this one soon.

The Good Daughter by Alexandra Burt

This novel is definitely one of my most anticipated reads for 2017. I’ve read Alexandra’s debut, Little Girl Gone, last year and was absolutely blown away by it. Such an amazing, compelling and thrilling read. I cannot wait to find out whether The Good Daughter will live up to my high expectations.

  1. Fab haul Heidi. Looks as if you have your reading mojo back?

    I enjoyed Dorothy Koomson. Hard hitting and thought provoking. I used to read her before I blogged but she’s one of the authors who seemed to slip away.

    I have All Our Wrong Todays too! It’s great to get out of our comfort zones 🙂

    I’m reading The Witchfinder’s Sister. It really does feel as if I’m immersed in the 1600s!

  2. Dorothy Koomson books never disappoint do they? I have at least 3 on my TBR at the moment.
    My next read is for a blog tour, which I haven’t done in ages, called Gustave Flaubert: The Ambiguity of Imagination by Giuseppe Cafiero. Here’s a snippet:
    What would happen if a character, even if only roughly sketched in the mind of a writer, decided to take on a life independent of his creator in order to take revenge against all the other characters that this author had created in his other books?
    Enjoy your reading this week! 🙂

  3. ‘All Our Wrong Todays’ is a very intriguing title – I’d definitely pick that one up.

    Sounds like there’s some interesting stuff coming in 2017. Hope you enjoy it!


  4. Thanks for the link up as always! I think All Our Wrong Todays sounds interesting and I’ve had my eye on it too, not sure though if the literary/ SF mashup will work? Will be curious to see what you think.
