Mini Bank Holiday Book Haul!

Hey guys! Today I am sharing with you my little Bank Holiday book haul. I definitely wasn’t planning on buying any new books but then Waterstones surprised us with a double stamp offer this weekend and, well, I couldn’t resist picking some up. Here’s what I got:

One by One by Chris Carter: I have been slowly collecting this series since there’s 11 books and buying them all at once is very expensive so I’ve been getting them each at a time. I managed to find five of them secondhand so I saved a bit there! One by One was the last one I needed to complete my collection, so now I’m going to read the entire series from start to finish. I’ve read a few and I loved them so I can’t wait to go back to the start now! The series follows Detective Robert Hunter of LAPD’s Homicide Special Section and the books I’ve read were so dark and gruesome. Definitely a lot darker than others I’ve read but so addicting too. They are so well written and keep you hooked.

The Thursday Murder Club by Richard Osman: I’ve been wanting to read this for so long but I was waiting for the paperback and I’m so glad I did because it has these beautiful red sprayed edges! At this point I feel like the only person who hasn’t read this! So many people have been raving about it and I hope I’ll be the same. I believe this follows four residents in a retirement village who get together once to investigate unsolved murders when, one day, a brutal killing takes place on their very doorstep so they work together to catch the killer. It sounds very intriguing!

The Seven Husbands of Evelyn Hugo by Taylor Jenkins Reid: This is another one that has been popping up a lot and seems to be a lot of people’s favourite book. I don’t really know a lot about this one other than it being about Evelyn Hugo, an aging Hollywood movie icon, telling the story of her glamorous life and her seven husbands. I can’t wait to see why everyone loves it so much!

People of Abandoned Character by Clare Whitfield: This one sounds so intriguing and I can’t wait to read it! It’s set in London in 1888 and follows Susannah who rushed into marriage to a young anf wealthy surgeon. Her husbands behaviour becomes increasing volatile and violent; he goes out at night and returns home bloodied, and Susannah begins to wonder if she’s married to Jack the Ripper. I nearly missed this because only a few copies were on display but as soon as I spotted it I grabbed a copy. 

So these are the books I picked up this weekend! Have you read any of them? I’d love to know your thoughts. Feel free to leave a comment below. I hope you enjoyed this post and thank you so much for reading!
