Hello everyone.

Welcome to this weeks Read With Me.

How are we all?

The past couple of weeks I seem to have had an influx of book post. Now I'm not complaining because I do love to read (hence the linky) however I feel slightly under pressure to read them quickly.

How fast can you read a book?

Here Lies the Secrets Book Review

I share a lot of Little Tiger books on my blog, all of which so far have been for younger children. This book review is therefore a little different because it is for one of their YA novels (yes they do publish young adult books too) from author Emma Young.

Her latest novel Here Lies the Secrets is a mix between a coming of age book with added ghostly goings on ...

It's been five years since her best friend died but Mia is still haunted by Holly's presence.

In New York for the summer, Mia meets psychology student Rav and is at once intrigued and unsettled by his study of paranormal phenomena. Hoping it might help her work through her own experiences. Mia joins Rav's research trip to Halcyon House. But as the investigation unfolds, Mia is forced to confront the memories of Holly that she's tried so hard to bury ...

My lovely eldest daughter actually took this book off my hands before I had a chance to read it so today I'm handing the review reigns over to her:

Thank you to everybody who linked up last week. All of your posts were fantastic.

The Catch by T.M. Logan Blog Tour

Hands up who's a fan of T.M. Logan.

Waves own hand in the air.

After reading The Holiday last year, which I'm telling you if you haven't read you must read now, I was thrilled when I had the opportunity to be a part of the blog tour for his latest novel, The Catch.

I was so sure that I'd like it , I went crazy and didn't even read the blurb first but here it is for your reading pleasure:

Ed is delighted to meet his twenty-three year old daughter's fiancé for the first time. Abbey is head-over-heels in love with her new man. Smart, successful and handsome, Ryan appears to be the perfect future son-in-law.

There's just one problem. There's something off about Ryan. Something hidden in the shadows behind his eyes. And it seems that only Ed can see it.

Terrified that his daughter is being drawn in by a psychopath, Ed sets out to uncover her fiancé's dark past - while keeping his own concealed. But no-one believes him. And the more he digs, the more he alienates her and the rest of the family who are convinced that Ryan is 'the one'.

Ed knows different. For reasons of his own, he knows a monster when he sees one...

Now I am a mum to four girls and I can definitely see my husband being the over-protective type when the day comes that they start to bring home boyfriends to introduce to us. However, I'm quite certain that he wouldn't have the tendency to turn into a stalker like Ed.
