I read eleven books in November, seven of which were books for the #NetGalleyNovember reading challenge. Links from each title will take you to my review or the book description on Goodreads if I haven’t got around to writing the review yet! You can find a list of all the books I’ve read so far in 2022 here. If we’re not already friends on Goodreads, send me a friend request or follow my reviews.
My thanks to Moonflower Books, Canongate, Weidenfeld & Nicolson, Vintage and Head of Zeus for providing me with review copies, including via NetGalley.
The Coming Darkness by Greg Mosse (Moonflower Books) – a clever, fast-paced and compelling thriller, set in the near future, with interesting characters, an intricate plot, a constant sense of jeopardy and plenty of surprises.
The Night Ship by Jess Kidd (Canongate) – A haunting, imaginative and enthralling book in which the author has taken a true story and used it to create something magical.
The Labyrinth of the Spirits by Carlos Ruiz Zafón (Weidenfeld & Nicolson) – An epic novel with everything I look for in historical fiction: passion, intrigue, adventure and a completely immersive experience.
My Father’s House by Joseph O’Connor (Vintage) – A compelling and intriguing literary thriller set in Vatican City in WW2, based on the true story of Monsignor Hugh O’Flaherty who smuggled thousands of Jews and escaped Allied prisoners out of Italy under the noses of the Nazis.
The Weather Woman by Sally Gardner (Head of Zeus) – A delightfully imaginative and heartwarming historical novel with some unforgettable characters.
