Read With Me #43 2017

Welcome to this weeks Read With Me, thank you as always to those who linked up last week and thank you as well for coming back to join me this week.


I'm very lucky in my position of blogger that I get sent some lovely books to read and review but not just that, I get sent books that are really meaningful and helpful and I get to share those with you. One of those books is House By the Marsh by author William Blyghton.

This novel looks at the subject of grief. We've all felt it at times in our lives but for a lot of us, we still feel the need to cover up our grief, let people think we are ok. What William does with this story is show love, compassion and highlighting that we all grieve in different ways and also the way that others see those who are grieving.


What you read is something quite intimate, displaying all those human emotions that many of us are afraid to let others see. For all the depression though, there is also humour and a feeling of warmth takes over by the end of the book.

House By the Marsh isn't what I'd call a page turner, it is a slow burner, one to read sparingly, taking in all of it because it is meaningful, though provoking. It is a story that will make you feel somewhat at peace with those feelings of loss and loneliness because you come to realise that life goes on and not always in the way we expect.

Now moving on from one book to another. My favourite post last week came from Sarah with her review of the book The Breakdown by B A Paris.

 On to the link up. Newbies do look at the Read With Me page, regulars get linking (max of 2 posts/videos), comment on a couple of other posts and perhaps consider displaying my badge of linking back somehow.
