Omg absolutely loved this. Such a creepy story. If you are a fan of horror novels give this a try. You might need to sleep with the lights on

Excellent read. A international team solves the mystery of who betrayed Anne frank and her family and the others who were hiding in the annex. With new technology and recently discovered documents and investigative techniques they answer the question.

The Surrogate: A Novel | Tania Carver

Finished this last night. It‘s a hard subject matter to read but it is written brilliantly. Didn‘t like the character Marina thought she was a whiny irritating woman. Loved Anni and Phil and Clayton was ok too but apart from that it was a good book 4/5

Book 3 of the Dollanganger series. This is told by Cathy‘s two son‘s Jory and Bart. I really enjoyed this book but have to admit Bart pissed me off. Never wanted to punch a character so much as I did with him

The Second book of the Dollanganger series. This one is more a revenge story. Some parts are difficult to read but definitely worth a read. But may not be for everyone

So doing the Goodreads challenge again this year. Decided on 19 books at the moment. Will obviously change that as it gets closer to the 19th book but that‘s what I‘m going to start with. Does anyone else do the reading challenge?

HollyBolly I do. Something to encourage me to read. I also alter it when I get close. Especially if it is near the middle of the year. 13mo
Billie84 @HollyBolly I‘m so glad I‘m not the only one who does this. 😊 13mo
