Books that have caught my eye

So if you read my posts regularly you will know I’ve been using audio books when at the gym. I was listening to Harry Potter and the Philosophers Stone but now it’s finished and I’ve been on the lookout for a new book.

After much searching, I finally downloaded Dear Amy and while I haven’t started reading it yet, I’m really looking forward to it.

Anyway in my search I found a few other books I liked the look of and so I thought I’d share them with you guys – because I’m nice like that 😉 I wanted to put together a list of books i want to read because once Harry Potter had ended i literally had no idea what i wanted to read. Now i’ve got a few in mind so once my Helen Callaghan novel has finished i can move right onto the next.

Btw if you haven’t tried audio books yet i would highly recommend it. I love reading but it never seems to become a priority. I’m in the middle of a book and although i love the story i haven’t picked it up in weeks (maybe even months now). With audio books however i find it easier to make time for them. I always have my phone in my hand and my headphones in my ears so they are a lot more convenient. Anyway without further ado, let’s have a look at my book list.

Dear Amy – Helen Callaghan

I’ll start off with the one i have just downloaded. I looked at a lot of books but none of the storylines seemed to excite me. I wasn’t really sure what i was looking for but once i read the bio for this, it grabbed my attention. Recently i have moved away from my typical rom com happy ending style of books. I love a lighthearted read and i won’t stop reading this type of novel but i’m becoming a lot more interested in mysterious stories where’s there some sort of crime to solve – Poirot-esque.

So this book is about a girl who disappears. She’s actually been missing for quite a while and i think the case has died down. One day a newspaper agony aunt gets a letter from supposedly the girl who went missing asking for help. She thinks its a hoax but after talking to the police and the arrival of more letters, maybe there is a  lead here. I’m not sure my description has done it justice but i haven’t started it yet. I’m really looking forward to this however.

High Heels & Bicycle Wheels – Jane Linfoot

This is actually one those light-hearted click flicks i mentioned earlier. I get through these stories so much quicker than normal so i think i will buy the book rather than go for the audio. It’s a boy meet girl love story but i like the sound of it.

The Missing Wife – Sheila O’Flanagan

This is about a woman, who seemingly has a perfect life, who goes missing. We are told in the blurb she has a dark past ready to catch up with her. I’m not sure what genre this book is but i think it sounds like an interesting read.

My Favourite Manson Girl – Alison Umminger

This will be next read after Dear Amy because i’ve read a book like this before and it turned into my favourite. If i’d have come across this first i would probably have downloaded this before if i’m honest.

A girl who’s having a crappy time jets off to Hollywood to live with her sister. It sounds like a great escape although when she gets there the reality is far from what she had imagined. She has no friends, no money and feels trapped in a town full of wannabes. In order to make money she gets a job researching he murdered Manson girls for a film but soon enough things turn dark and dangerous. Again i’ve only gave a quick description that probably doesn’t do it justice but i’m really excited for this one.

The One We Fell In Love With – Paige Toon

I’m still a sucker for a chick flick (can you call it that when it applies to books?) and this one sounds like something i like to read. It’s about two very different down on their luck girls who both fall in love with the same guy. I’m not sure why this appeals to me but i do like a lighthearted read.

So yeah those are the books that have caught my eye. I nearly went on an amazon spree after reading about all of these but audio books are better suited for me these days and i need to go one at a time. I want to get gripped in the stories.

    Ooh I haven’t read any of these books, so think I might have to give one or two of them a go! I agree with you about audiobooks, they’re so easy to pick up while you’re walking or driving or at the gym
