August Book Haul!

Hello everyone,
I’ve got a book haul to share with you today! I promised myself that I wouldn’t buy any more books until I’ve read more of the ones I’ve already got, especially as I’m running out of room, but then the below happened…
Some have been bought and a few were sent to me by publishers/authors (these are marked with a *).
I’ve linked through to their pages on Goodreads so you can see more about each book, if you fancy!
Have a lovely rest of the bank holiday weekend 🙂
Book haul stack
Hour Game and The LieThe Lie by C.L Taylor
I’ve seen The Accident by the same author and always wanted to read both that and The Lie, so when I saw this at a good price I snapped it up, and am looking forward to reading it! I really enjoy novels about people who are not who they seem to be, and this fits the bill perfectly!
Hour Game by David Baldacci
I love David Baldacci’s novels and haven’t read this one. Its synopsis says “Two disgraced former Secret Service officers team up to solve a series of copy-cat crimes in this exciting new thriller by a master of the game”. Take a look at Goodreads for the full synopsis, but this sounds like it will be really quick paced and exciting.
The Promise and Dead LovelyThe Promise by Lesley Pearse
Often I fancy a change from thrillers and crime novels, and this appealed as it’s historical fiction which looks like it will really immserse the reader in WW1, a period of history I’m really interested in. Plus it doesn’t look like it will be too dry to be enjoyable, and I’ve heard good things about Lesley Pearse!
Dead Lovely by Helen Fitzgerald
I’m always wanting to read more of Helen Fitzgerald’s novels, and this looked fun and a little dark- the synopsis mentions ‘sexual tension, murder and mayhem…’ which sounds pretty intriguing!

The Dying Hours and All My Secrets
The Dying Hours by Mark Billingham
Another author I really enjoy reading, and although it’s no.11 in Billingham’s ‘Tom Thorne’ series, hopefully it won’t matter that I haven’t read any others of this particular series!
All My Secrets by Sophie McKenzie
After I bought this I had a look and realised there were a LOT of 1 and 2 star reviews for this book. So now I kind of wish I hadn’t looked… however I’m going to go into reading this with an open mind and hope it surprises me for the better… we shall see!
The Detective's Secret and Only We Know
The Detective’s Secret by Lesley Thomson*
I think this is the third in a series, and I’ve heard good things about The Detective’s Daughter and Ghost Girl, the first and second in the ‘Detectives Daughter’ series respectively, so I think I might try and read those two first! Really looking forward to reading this series though.
Only We Know by Karen Perry*
This looks like it switches back and forwards in time and addresses a secret from the characters’ childhoods- usually an interesting and The Good Liar by Nicholas Searleintriguing formula so I hope it’s well worth a read!
The Good Liar by Nicholas Searle*
I’m currently reading this, and really enjoying it. It doesn’t come out until January 2016 though, so there’s a bit of a wait for this to be available! I might delay posting my review for a while so it’s closer to publication date…though maybe not… definitely a good read so far!
What are you reading at the moment? Do any of the above look like they’d interest you?
Don’t forget you can add me as a friend on Goodreads too!
