With the hopes of getting through a few books on the shelves I am going to start documenting what I am reading. This way I am accountable and can get rid of them as I go!
This month I have read The Last Days of Jack Sparks by Jason Arnopp. What a fabulous read and kept me turning each page with renewed excitement to see what was to happen next.
It was no secret that journalist Jack Sparks had been researching the occult for his new book. No stranger to controversy, he’d already triggered a furious Twitter storm by mocking an exorcism he witnessed.
Then there was that video: forty seconds of chilling footage that Jack repeatedly claimed was not of his making, yet was posted from his own YouTube account.
Nobody knew what happened to Jack in the days that followed – until now.
I started reading this one while I was away so really got into the whole ‘holiday book’ mode and managed to finish it in a few days. I love how this whole book was set out, played through and tied together! So clever!
One of the book I saw while in the States was The Ladies of the Secret Circus. I have since purchases Constance Sayers other book too – A Witch In Time. I am only 3/4 of the way through the Secret Circus and I love it! So much better than I anticipated, full of magic and mystery.
Paris, 1925: To enter the Secret Circus is to enter a world of wonder – a world where women weave illusions of magnificent beasts, carousels take you back in time, and trapeze artists float across the sky. Bound to her family’s circus, it’s the only world Cecile Cabot knows until she meets a charismatic young painter and embarks on a passionate affair that could cost her everything.
Virginia, 2004: Lara Barnes is on top of the world until her fiancé disappears on their wedding day. When her desperate search for answers unexpectedly leads to her great-grandmother’s journals, Lara is swept into a story of a dark circus and ill-fated love.
Soon secrets about Lara’s family history begin to come to light, revealing a curse that has been claiming payment from the women in her family for generations. A curse that might be tied to her fiancé’s mysterious disappearance
You know when you are reading a book and you don’t want it to end as you don’t want to let the characters go. I have a feeling this is going to be one of those books. Sob.
