BLOGMAS 19 || MY TOP BOOKS OF 2019


For today's post I thought I would try writing about something a little different in an attempt to keep Blogmas feeling fresh, because trust me when I say my idea pot is running a little empty right now. 2019 has been a year of many things but more importantly the year I re-ignited my love for reading. I've read some crackers, but here's a small selection of the ones I thought were worthy of sharing! Perhaps they could make a great Christmas gift for someone! 

John Marrs - The Passengers
The passengers is one book of many that I love from the author John Marrs. His way of writing and storytelling is unlike any other and I am just so obsessed with the mystery behind the pages. This book in particular follows on from 'The One' and is set in the future where technology has taken over. "When someone hacks into the systems of eight self-drive cars, their passengers are set on a fatal collision course. The passengers are: a TV star, a pregnant young woman, a disabled war hero, an abused wife fleeing her husband, an illegal immigrant, a husband and wife - and parents of two - who are travelling in separate vehicles and a suicidal man. Now the public have to judge who should survive but are the passengers all that they first seem?". Honestly it's worth a read!

Heidi Perks - Now You See Her
If you're looking for a quick read then this one is the book for you. Perks tells the story of a little girl going missing and a mothers battle to find the truth. As soon as I started reading this book I couldn't put it down. "Charlotte is looking after her best friend’s daughter the day she disappears. She thought the little girl was playing with her own children. She swears she only took her eyes off them for a second. Now, Charlotte must do the unthinkable: tell her best friend Harriet that her only child is missing. The child she was meant to be watching. Devastated, Harriet can no longer bear to see Charlotte. No one could expect her to trust her friend again. Only now she needs to. Because two weeks later Harriet and Charlotte are both being questioned separately by the police. And secrets are about to surface. Someone is hiding the truth. So what really happened to Alice?".

John Marrs - When You Disappeared
This book is another great read from the author John Marrs. This story is all about a father who goes 'missing' one morning leaving behind his wife and children. It shows the man starting a life elsewhere before finally going back to his married home many years later. I really enjoyed reading this book and experiencing the jump from two different points of view - the wife and the husband. "When Catherine wakes up alone one morning, she thinks her husband has gone for a run before work. But Simon never makes it to the office. His running shoes are by the front door. Nothing is missing—except him. Catherine knows Simon must be in trouble. He wouldn’t just leave her. He wouldn’t leave the children. But Simon knows the truth—about why he left and what he’s done. He knows things about his marriage that it would kill Catherine to find out. The memories she holds onto are lies. While Catherine faces a dark new reality at home, Simon’s halfway around the world, alive and thriving. He’s doing whatever it takes to stay one step ahead of the truth. But he can’t hide forever, and when he reappears twenty-five years later, Catherine will finally learn who he is. And wish she’d stayed in the dark."

Rosie Walsh - The Man Who Didn't Call
So, this is my current read so I can't really go into too much depth as I don't want to ruin it for myself but here is the blurb... "Imagine you meet a man, spend seven glorious days together, and fall in love. And it’s mutual: you’ve never been so certain of anything. So when he leaves for a long-booked holiday and promises to call from the airport, you have no cause to doubt him.But he doesn’t call. Your friends tell you to forget him, but you know they're wrong: something must have happened; there must be a reason for his silence.What do you do when you finally discover you're right? That there is a reason – and that reason is the one thing you didn't share with each other?" 


So there we have it! Have you read any great books in 2019? Any to recommend? 

Until next time, x
