Welcome to my stop on the blog tour for The Closer I get by Paul Burston.
‘Tom is a successful author, but for the first time in his life, he has writer’s block. His main distraction is an online admirer, Evie, who simply won’t leave him alone. Evie is smart, well read and unstable ; she lives with her sick father and her social media friendships are not only her escape, but everything she has. When she’s hit with a restraining order, her world collapses, whilst Tom is free to live his life again, and to concentrate on writing.
But things aren’t adding up. For Tom is also addicted to his online relationships, and when they take a darker, more menacing turn, he’s powerless to change things. Because maybe he needs Evie more than he’s letting on.

So I kind of forgot to do monthly wrap up posts for April and May, but not this month! This month I am on it! Most of my reads this month were for book tours, only two of them were from my TBR pile – I think I’ve become a bit addicted to tours! I think it’s quite a good mix of books though – some thrillers, a heartbreaker, and one quite controversial one…

Welcome to my stop on the blog tour for Distant Signs by Anne Richter.
‘Distant Signs’ is an intimate portrait of two families spanning three generations amidst turbulent political change, behind and beyond the Berlin Wall.
In 1960s Germany, Margret, a professor’s daughter from the city, meets and marries Hans, from a small village in the Thuringian forest. The couple struggle to contend with their different backgrounds, and the emotional scars they bear from childhood in the aftermath of war. As East German history gradually unravels, with collision of the personal and political, acutely observed vignettes quietly reveal their two families’ hidden truths.’

Welcome to my stop on the blog tour for Pip Drysdale’s The Sunday Girl
“Any woman who’s ever been involved with a bad, bad man and been dumped understands what it feels like to be broken, broken-hearted and bent on revenge.
Taylor Bishop is hurt, angry and determined to destroy Angus Hollingsworth in the way he destroyed her : ‘Insidiously. Irreparably. Like a puzzle he’d slowly dissembled…Stolen a couple of pieces from, and then discarded, knowing that nobody would ever be able to put it back together ever again.’
So Taylor consults The Art Of War and makes a plan. Then she takes the next irrevocable step, one that will change her life forever.”

Welcome to my stop on the ‘Take Me To The Edge’ blog tour!
‘Five words are all it takes to provoke a chain of creation.
This is what Katya Boirand discovered the first time she asked a friend for five words and then turned them into a poem, using the words and the subject as her inspiration. This spark started a movement, and soon Katya was asking friends and strangers alike for their five words of choice.
Take Me To The Edge is a selection of these poems, sitting alongside a portrait of each subject, in this stunning and joyous celebration of language, connection and art.’

Welcome to my stop on the blog tour for Just My Type by Hannah Doyle.
‘He’s my type on paper…but IRL?
– The quirky/cool photographer to a superstar blogger
– She’s going on a date with a SUPER hot guy on the London Eye tonight
– Best friend Mila is her wifey for life
– This millennial is #LivingHerBestLife
But fast-forward a few hours, and the reality isn’t quite so picture perfect. Jasmine hates her stuck-up blogger boss. She can barely afford rent in her stupid London flat. Her best friend seems to have all her sh*t together. Oh, and that date she was so excited about? She got dumped. On the London Eye. In the middle of a thunderstorm. With a bunch of tourists watching…
Best friend Mila decides that Jasmine needs a new ‘type on paper’ because Jasmine’s current criteria is so off that her dating history is one long line-up of fools. So Mila challenges Jasmine to look once, if not twice, at the guys who wouldn’t normally fit her ‘type’. With nothing to lose, Jasmine accepts. Maybe, just maybe, she’ll surprise herself.’
