Books Read In March 2020.

Where I was averaging about five books read in two months , I have now managed five in one month! So here’s an update of my reads in March. πŸ™‚

Dark Sky Island ~ Lara Dearman ( 2018). Theres a killer on the loose….and someone knows who it is. Journalist Jennifer Dorey is a Channel Islands native living on Guernsey and working for the local paper. Not exactly a hotbed for exciting news stories, things change when a body is discovered on the nearby island of Sark. With no cars allowed and no street lamps lighting the island, Jennifer discovers the inhabitants secrets are as dark as Sark’s pitch black night sky. ⭐⭐⭐

The Deathless Girls ~ Kiran Millwood Hargrave ( 2019). Here’s a book I actually won in a Facebook competition. It’s a Young Adult novel and an imagined account of how the Bride’s of Dracula came into being. A gothic Romany tale that explores prejudices, friendships and the supernatural, it did feel a

bit rushed at the end. ⭐⭐⭐

Max The Miracle Dog ~ Kerry Irving ( 2020). After Kerry is injured in a life changing car accident he finds himself unemployed, house bound, and depressed. A chance encounter with a friendly yard dog called Max on a painful shuffle to the shop, gives Kerry a reason to get up in the mornings, when Max’s owner agrees to let him take the affectionate Springer out for a short walk each day. This is a heart warming true story of a man who found it hard to talk about his feelings until a waggy spaniel came into his life. You can also follow Max’s adventures on Facebook at Max Out In The Lake District. ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

Someone Is Lying ~ Jenny Blackhurst ( 2019). They all swore it was an accident but…….Someone is LYING. A year to the day of Erica Spencer’s tragic accident an anonymous podcast puts her death back in the spotlight again , pointing the finger of blame on her friends and neighbors, the residents of the close knit gated community in which she lived. With plenty of secrets and lies and twists and turns, this page turner thriller reminded me a little of an English Desperate Housewives. ⭐⭐⭐⭐

You, Me And The Movies ~ Fiona Collins ( 2019). Back in her youth Arden had an intense affair with Mac, a handsome film lecturer. Years and a few bad relationships later, visiting a friend in hospital, Arden recognises a very ill Mac is a patient too. Through ten classic movies they had watched together, Arden goes on an emotional journey that may just inspire her to give love another chance. ⭐⭐⭐⭐

  1. If I were to read any of these it would be Max. I love true animal stories and this one sounds interesting if it’s set in the Lake District – I must look out for it πŸ™‚

    1. Yes we could all do with a waggy Springer. πŸ™‚ Hugo is quite waggy bit is sulking and sighing alot as he is not getting quite as much exercise as he is used to. X

  2. I have been reading lots too, in between knitting projects. Yesterday I managed to put a second left thumb on a pair of mittens so I had to set it down and get my head straight. I read a book called Moon of the Crusted Snowβ€”a story written by an Ontario Mohawk author. The world falls apart and the people in the south head out for the northern Indian reservation thinking it the best chance for survival. A quick read but rather timely in this weird and wacky time. Hope all is well with you 😊

    1. Hi yes I am good thanks. Sounds like your keeping busy. I have just watched the sequel to Zombieland, which is kind of timely too. A comedy though, I won’t be watching The Walking Dead. πŸ˜…

  3. I thought the story of Max sounded familiar, I have just seen from the comments that he lives in Keswick. There used to be an exhibit about him in the Keswick Museum, which may still be there but they have recently changed their exhibits so not sure if it is still there.

  4. ‘War and Peace’. Now or never I thought. Two hundred pages in and I’m still wondering about my choice.
