On What Cathy Read Next last week

Blog posts

Tuesday – I shared my Top Ten Books of 2017 which involved much anguished decision-making, with many great books having to miss the cut.

WednesdayWWW Wednesday is the opportunity to share what I’ve just finished reading, what I’m reading now and what I’ll be reading next. I also joined the blog tour for Blackmail, Sex and Lies with a fantastic Q&A with its author, Kathryn McMaster. There is a giveaway still running until 20 December.

Thursday –For Throwback Thursday I shared my review of The Snow Child by Eowyn Ivey which also happened to be my Goodreads book club read for December.

Friday – I published my review of a terrific thriller set in Tokyo, The Last Train by Michael Pronko. It’s the first book in a series with two more instalments to follow in 2018 hopefully.

Saturday –I completed a really fun challenge, My Life in Books, where you have to answer questions with titles of books you read this year. Why not have a go yourself? I also signed up for my first reading challenge of 2018 – a historical fiction challenge hosted by Passages to the Past. Finally, I shared my review of Corpus by Rory Clements, the first in a new series featuring Cambridge professor, Tom Wilde.
