πŸ“š What’s On Your Bookshelf – September 2022 πŸ“š

I somehow missed last month’s but still don’t seem to have that many this month, I’ve been watching too much TV!

Anyway I do enjoy this challenge as it gives me recommendations to read the following month. This challenge is hosted by Debbie at Deb’s World, also Sue, Donna and Jo whose links you can find on Debbie’s page.

My offerings for this month are:

The Final Strife by Saara El-Arifi is pure fantasy. I like a fantasy book now and again but this went above and beyond, I tried to give up a few times but kept going back! It is extremely gory and gruesome but I finished it, I’m not sure about anymore though. Well written – 4/5

Opal Country or Treasure and Dirt by Chris Hammer. This is a stand alone book which features all new people. I enjoyed this murder mystery set in the Opal Mining Country of Australia. Great descriptions of the mining towns. – 4/5

The Lady’s Guide to Good Fortune-Hunting by Sophie Irwin. I’ve seen this on other blogger’s posts so won’t go into detail, except to say what a fun easy read it was. Fully of jolly japes and dastardly deeds. 4/5

The Family Upstairs by Lisa Jewell – Just amazing. Loved this book from the first page and read it at every opportunity I could, even while stirring pots and eating dinner! I’m now reading The Family Remains the sequel. 5/5

Little Sister by Gytha Lodge. This is the fourth book in the Detective Jonah Sheens books and I’ve enjoyed them all. This story is full of twists and turns, I didn’t know which way was up in the end! Loved it though. 5/5

All links go to Amazon UK, where there are full synopses and reviews.

I’m looking forward to reading everyone else’s book recommendations and to see if anyone has read the books above.

Especially if you are in Groundhog Day

  1. Thanks for joining us Ali. I too enjoyed Treasure & Dirt as a good bush noir book. I am going to add The Family Upstairs to my want to read list as well as the Gytha Lodge series, I’ve not heard of them before. A Ladies Guide to Fortune Hunting was a fun read and you summed it up very well! Thanks as always for the recommendations. (I’ve also added your post to the linkup) πŸ™‚
