This is what I bought in September, not much because I couldn’t look at Kobo website a lot since I was busy, but I did buy a little bit:
Lycke by Mikaela Bley.
New author for me and new series. This is the first book in the Emma Tamm’s Series.
‘Death, death, death,’ she whispered to herself. But it was already too late. The panic was growing inside her.
On a cold and stormy Friday in May, a young girl disappears without a trace from outside Stockholm’s Royal Tennis Hall.
The missing girl is Lycke, and assigned to report on her story is TV4’s hot-headed crime reporter Ellen Tamm. As the police begin their search, Ellen starts her own investigation, delving into Lycke’s life: her family, the nanny, the kids who taunted her at school.
As Ellen is drawn deeper into a tangle of secrets, lies, and betrayals — and frustrated by the odd behavior of Lycke’s family, as well as corrupt police, her upstart new boss, and the disturbing threats being made against her — she becomes more and more possessed by the task she has been given, tortured by the echoes of her own past, of the darkness that haunts her. Will she find Lycke before it is too late for either of them?
This is what I bought in July, oh man! Kobo had a .99 book sale, you can bet I bought everything and more:
Abandoned by Cody McFadyen.
Fourth book in Smoky Barrett Series. I had to buy this book in English because sold out in Italian and no Italian kobo version
The woman had been missing for almost eight years. Someone watched her, stalked her, kidnapped her, and held her captive in the dark all that time. No ransom demand, and no suspects. No answers, even now that the woman has been found – thrown from an unmarked car in front of a beach-side wedding – alive but unbearably traumatized. All she can do is scream. Tracking a kidnapper who appears to have no motive, FBI Special Agent Smoky Barrett and her team are plunged into the most sinister and disturbing case of their careers.Then they start to find the others.
Since February 2016 I read books with my Kobo eReader. I didn’t like it at first but I had to come to this compromise because I didn’t have any more space in my library. I’m a book addicted and I don’t know how many books I bought since last year because of discounts and promotions on the Kobo website. Thankfully I have them all in “one book”.
In a masterly new thriller by the New York Times bestselling author of the Rizzoli & Isles series, a beautiful violinist is haunted by a very old piece of music she finds in a strange antique shop in Rome. The first time Julia Ansdell picks up “The Incendio Waltz,” she knows it's a strikingly unusual composition. But while playing the piece, Julia blacks out and awakens to find her young daughter implicated in acts of surprising violence. And when she travels to Venice to find the previous owner of the music, she uncovers a dark secret that involves dangerously powerful people—a family who would stop at nothing to keep Julia from bringing the truth to light.
About the Book
This is my 250th read book registered on Goodread website, obviously it isn’t my 250th read overall in my life since I’m sure I forgot to add a lot of books to the website but I would like to start this category with this book.
I’m used to Tess Gerritsen’s books, or rather I read her Rizzoli & Isles series thanks to the TV show which introduced me to Rizzoli’s character, so when I saw this book in the “suggested” column of my Kobo account, I said why not? As usual I read the word “violent” in the summary and think it’s a mystery/thriller genre. Oh I was so wrong! At first, coming from a mystery/fantasy book in which supernatural was the key to the book (which I didn’t like) I thought “oh gosh, no! Not another book like the previous one!” but when I started the second part (the first Lorenzo’s section) I was blown away. I couldn’t rest until I finished the book.
All my book reviews are and will be 100% honest. I don’t get paid to write them and I don’t get “gifts” to write a good review so what I write is what I think. If I love a book, I’m going to say that, if I don’t like a book, I will write why I don’t. My critics aren’t an attack to the author, they are just how I feel about a subject or a style.
