As it’s Thanksgiving on Thursday (in those countries who celebrate it), this week’s topic is a Freebie on the theme of Thankful For… I’m thankful for lots of things but I’m especially grateful that I have the time to indulge my love of reading, and work on reducing my TBR pile. Well, that’s the theory but how did I do in practice with the books I put on my Autumn 2020 TBR?

Betrayal by Lilja Sigurdardottir (published on 1st October by Orenda) – Exploring the harsh worlds of politics, police corruption and misogyny, Betrayal is a relevant, powerful, fast-paced thriller that feels just a little bit too real…

The Diabolical Bones by Bella Ellis (published on 5th November by Hodder & Stoughton) – a new case for the Brontë sisters’ fledgling detecting enterprise

 

How To Belong by Sarah Franklin (published on 12th November by Bonnier) – In the follow up to her acclaimed novel Shelter, Sarah Franklin returns to the Forest of Dean, this time exploring what it means to belong to a rural community in a rapidly changing world.

Imperfect Alchemist by Naomi Miller (published on 19th November by Allison & Busby) – Two women. One bond that will unite them across years and social divides.
