Evie’s ex-boyfriend Owen has been found dead – with a fountain pen stabbed through his heart – and all the evidence points to her.
Very much looking forward to this one, I was lucky enough to be gifted a finished copy by Quercus Books.

I’m not the biggest Disney fan in the world but I love the sound of this series of Disney-stories-turned-on-their-heads. Sort of like published fanfiction! Hoping it will be a fun read.
BEFORE YOU READ THIS BOOK
I WANT YOU TO KNOW THREE THINGS:
1. The police are looking to charge me with murder.
2. No one knows who I am. Or how I did it.
3. If you think you’ve found me. I’m coming for you next.
After you’ve read this book, you’ll know: the truth is far more twisted…
I loved Thirteen so this promptly got added to my bookshelf, not got to it yet but I will…
It began with rumours from China about another pandemic. Then the cases started to multiply and what had looked like the stirrings of a criminal underclass, even the beginning of a revolution, soon revealed itself to be much, much worse.
Faced with a future of mindless man-eating horror, humanity was forced to accept the logic of world government and face events that tested our sanity and our sense of reality. Based on extensive interviews with survivors and key players in the ten-year fight against the horde, World War Z brings the finest traditions of journalism to bear on what is surely the most incredible story in the history of human civilisation.
One I’ve wanted to read for years so I picked it up recently. I do like a good apocalyptic/dystopian novel sometimes.
Have you read any of these? Did you enjoy them?
