This was a good Quick Read covering a voltaic eruption on Tenerife in the 18th century and the murder of a man, made to look like suicide at the time. Can his daughter reveal the truth behind the conspiracy before the volcano erupts.

Kicking off #Scarathlon2022 by reading The Black Mountain, which also fits the prompt for today for #ScarathlonDailyPrompt #Black

A town is in the shadow of a mighty volcano, which legend says has the devil living inside it.

First book finished for #20in4.

This is another winner for Jo Thomas; I do enjoy her books. As Christmas approaches three women head to Iceland to fulfil a challenge to see The Northern Lights for a friend who has passed away. They chose to do it on her 40th birthday. Unfortunately the weather is bad that night and they find themselves snowed in at a small remote village. This then becomes a time of personal discovery for all of them.

Andrew65 A great flavour of Iceland within the book along with a hint of Romance. Will this time transform their lives? 3d

This was a very enjoyable introduction to a series that eventually sees a detective and a Lecturer in Forensic Psychology team up. They are total opposites and the relationship starts off very rocky, even with dislike, especially as the Forensic Psychologist is the one who discovered the body in the first place. Looking forward to continuing this series. This one available free in UK if member of Audible or Prime. Worth checking elsewhere.

EadieB Sounds interesting! 4d
Andrew65 @EadieB definitely shows promise. 4d

Here‘s the poster for this week‘s #20in4 Readathon, a week delayed due to a full on month with the Queen‘s death and funeral.

Hope everyone will join this fun and informal Readathon, and now it goes into October it will even help those doing #Scarathlon2022 to earn more points.

Aim to read twenty hours or twenty chapters, or feel free to set your own goals. Anything goes.

Just post your goals and books if you know them to sign up.

Posted a summary of Readathons over the next month or so, which I thought would help those taking part in #Scarathlon

A bit behind on the #20in4 Readathon due to the Queen‘s death and her funeral, so September‘s #20in4 mostly takes place in October.

Hope to see you all at these readathons, the first starting this Friday.

1 I enjoy all Historical fiction, from a whole range of time frames.I tend to read a lot ofRoman and Roman BritainFiction, some which is more than 2000 years old,but also some that isn‘t.

2.I recommend any work by Ben Kane, but especially the Forgotten Legion Trilogy, and the tagged book, which is the first of a Trilogy based on Cicero born 3rd January 106 BCE.

Wow!!!! This may only be a short book but it really packs a punch, repeatedly. Had to read it in one sitting and was totally invested in the character. At times not easy reading and you fear what is coming. Definitely stares racism in the face and totally exposes the everyday effect of racism. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Pigpen_Reads What is the 20 in 4? I've seen posts, but I'm not entirely sure what it is? :) 1mo
Mollyanna Woohoo! Nicely done Andrew! 👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻 1mo
kspenmoll Congratulations!!! You rocked it! 🙌🏻🙌🏻 1mo
Andrew65 @Pigpen_Reads sorry for the delay in replying. #20in4 is a readathon that runs over the last weekend in each month - Friday to Monday inclusive. The aim is either to read 20 hours over the four days, or alternatively 20 chapters. However it is very informal so you can set your own goals, e.g 10 hours over the 4 days etc. Be great to have you join us in September. 1mo

Another great book in the William Warwick series, As well as dealing with the usual foes, this one also involves a strong storyline revolving around Princess Diana and her life. Totally enjoyed this one, and recommend the series.

Hate Jeffrey Archer‘s politics but can‘t help enjoying his books!

Wanted a short book to end off the month and the #20in4 Readathon, so I chose this interesting memoir and self-help book by Matt Haig based on his experiences.

jewright I love his fiction. 1mo
Andrew65 @jewright Me too, which is why I thought I‘d give this a go. An interesting and thought provoking read with some good messages in there from people who suffer with depression. 1mo

This was an okay read, would most probably give it 3/5 Stars. An interesting story about new beginnings and alternate timelines. Also some interesting discussions of a wide range of things including how to relax, philosophical elements etc. An interesting twist and it did make me think.

Starting a new audiobook, with an interesting premise. Not an author I know, but the first book in a new series. Available as a Listen Now book on #NetGalley

SusanLee I‘ve not tried listening to audiobooks yet, how is the experience? 1mo
Andrew65 @SusanLee It can depend on the book, but for me it is a way of getting to more books. Some books work better than others, but I do love audiobooks. Up to a few years ago I hadn‘t tried any. Luckily I started with a good audiobook, The Help by Kathryn Stockett. I get a lot free from the library. I would say just give it a go, you‘ve nothing to lose. (edited) 1mo
SusanLee @Andrew65 thanks for the insight! I might give it a try 🤞🏻 1mo
Andrew65 @SusanLee Good luck. 1mo

This was a very enjoyable audiobook. Kept teasing you about who the murderer could be with some interesting developments / twists along the way. It kept me wanting to keep listening.

Starting a new audiobook about a murder that happened 5 years before at a Beach Party, affected peoples‘ lives but has remained unsolved. Can a the people behind a blog solve the case?

#20in4 #AugustARC @Clwojick

Clwojick Ooooh. I love plots where blogs/podcasts are attempting to solve a murder! 1mo
Andrew65 @Clwojick This one is tailor made for you. Should have said podcast not blog. 1mo

Time to progress the WilliamWarwick series, with the new book which is published next month. One of the central characters in this book is Diana, Princess of Wales. Should be interesting.

Another very enjoyable book in the series and we finally have answers about the Sarah storyline. More off an action packed thriller this one, rather than as detective book, and had to suspend belief in one or two places. Hopefully now we know this we can get back to conventional murder mystery books. @Tove_Reads @EadieB

I‘ve yet to read a bad book by Simon Toyne, and this one was no different. An excellent murder mystery with a bit of a twist based on what was left at the murder scene. Great characters, great plotting and great storytelling. I definitely recommend this book and could see how it could easily be made into a series.

Time to progress the Ruth Hunter Series, with book 10 in the series. Usually set in North Wales, this one is actually set in France as we find out the story behind the disappearance of Ruth‘s one time lover many years before. @EadieB @Tove_Reads

EadieB Hope you like it! 1mo
Andrew65 @EadieB 🤞The wait has been worth it. 1mo
EadieB @Andrew65 I just finished my book too! 1mo
Tove_Reads Was a good book, but a bit too much of an action thriller, felt like I was reading Ben Hope at times. 1mo
Andrew65 @Tove_Reads This has been the issue with 2 or 3 of them. much better when conventional murder mystery books. 1mo
