Book Love (1)

Hi everyone. Today it’s my great pleasure to welcome Annie from The Misstery Book Blog to Jen Med’s to help me spread a little more book love. We’ll be taking a look at all of Annie’s choices in just a moment, as soon as we’ve learned a little more about the person behind the blog.

About Annie

AAnnie. 26. Barcelona. In a past life, I was probably a tortured police detective with a dark and traumatic past. Right now, however, I’m just a twenty-something bookworm who loves to listen to old songs and watch 90s movies. I enjoy reading mystery and crime novels, coming of age stories, and historical fiction set in the last century.

#BlogTour: Clipped Wings by Jennifer Gilmour @JenLGilmour @emmamitchellFPR

Today it’s my honour to be taking part in the blog tour for Clipped Wings by Jennifer Gilmour. I will be sharing with you an extract from the book in a short while, but it’s important that you understand what this book is all about.

CWThe Official Book Blurb

The silent chorus.

Just imagine you thought that you had met the man or woman of your dreams. This person was charming and you thought they were the one or perhaps that this was fate; it was just meant to be.

But as the months go by things start to change. Their behaviour towards you isn’t the same, they are more critical, more particular about your appearance, what you do, how you do
it, who you see. Time goes by and you feel isolated from your friends and family because that behaviour has now changed to threats, maybe violence and you feel that your identity is all but gone. But still you stay. Where would you go? Who would help you? You are not worthy.

But you are.

A group of survivors have spoken about their own experiences. In their own words they show that survivors do have a voice and that it needs to be heard. They show that abuse isn’t unique or strange but that it is, unfortunately, a surprisingly
common problem in today’s society.

The message of this book is one of courage, as with courage comes awareness and an ability to understand what has happened to you and take the steps needed to become a survivor yourself.

Rewind, recap: Weekly update w/e 29/10/17

It is official. I am broken. Well … when I say official, I mean that I feel it. Let’s face it – none of us are getting any younger, me included, and it’s fair to say I’ve been working some pretty wacky hours of late. Well … they are finally catching up with me and if the bags under my eyes get much bigger, I’m not going to have to worry about taking my bags for life to Tesco for the weekly shop anymore …

#Review: The Strange Disappearance of a Bollywood Star by Vaseem Khan @VaseemKhanUK @1stMondayCrime

Today it’s my third and final review in the Inspector Chopra/Baby Ganesh Detective Agency series for First Monday Crime. I’ve really enjoyed catching up with Chopra and Baby Ganesha his rather unusual partner in crime-fighting and this was another brilliant book. I’ll tell you my thoughts in just a moment, as soon as we’ve seen what the book is all about.

IC3The Official Book Blurb

The enchanting new Baby Ganesh Agency novel sees Inspector Chopra and his elephant sidekick investigating the dark side of Bollywood.

Mumbai thrives on extravagant spectacles and larger-than-life characters.

But even in the city of dreams, there is no guarantee of a happy ending.

Rising star and incorrigible playboy Vikram Verma has disappeared, leaving his latest film in jeopardy. Hired by Verma’s formidable mother to find him, Inspector Chopra and his sidekick, baby elephant Ganesha, embark on a journey deep into the world’s most flamboyant movie industry.

As they uncover feuding stars, failed investments and death threats, it seems that many people have a motive for wanting Verma out of the picture.

And yet, as Chopra has long suspected, in Bollywood the truth is often stranger than fiction…
