Happy Publication Day to @michaelconnellybooks.
The Night Fire by the brilliant Michael Connelly is the third book that sees Harry Bosch and Renee Ballard working together. Harry Bosch is without a doubt my favourite character and crime series. Harry has been working for a long time and is getting on in years so the introduction of Renee is a smart way to keep the series going. She is young and like Harry she never gives up. Harry has always believed "Everybody counts or nobody counts" and this comes through in every case that he works and he is instilling this belief into his new "partner" Renee. 
I have read everything that that Michael Connelly has written and never get tired of his characters. A new Harry Bosch book is like coming home. He is now a retired detective but seems to be busier than ever. In this book he has multiple cases going on as well as his own health issues and keeping an eye on his daughter Maddie who is about to graduate. 
The first case is a cold case of the murder of a young kid John Hilton. This case is handed to him in the the form of a murder book, left behind by his old mentor from when he was a rookie, John Jack Thompson. At the funeral for his old colleague his widow gives him the book. After reading through it he gives it to Renee. He knows that it will intrigue her as much as it does him and the pair start to work the case.
He is also helping his brother in law Mickey Haller, otherwise known as The Lincoln Lawyer. Mickey is on the case of a murdered judge and believes that his client is innocent. Bosch also confides in him what is going on with him personally and asks for his help.
And then Renee, working the Late Show has a case of a homeless man who has died when his tent caught fire and nobody saw anything. She can't leave it as an accident, determined to find out who did this and why.
Told in chapters from both Bosch and Ballard points of view, The Night Fire is another fantastic addition to the Harry Bosch Universe. Lovers of this series will love this but also new comers will be sucked into the story

Petronella McGovern - Six Minutes 
@petronella_mc 
@allenandunwin 
Lexie Parker makes a quick trip to the shops after leaving her daughter, Bella with other mothers in the local playgroup.
Six Minutes later, Bella has disappeared.
Six Minutes is a fast paced mystery thriller that will keep you guessing until the end.
I soaked up the words like a sponge, I had to know what happened, from the first page, I was hooked.
Petronella plants the seed, she let’s it grow and reveals all with a bang.
The suspense grows, the tension builds, keeping the reader intrigued until the final page.
The plot teases the mind, asking so many questions making you believe you know the answers but when you think you know what happened? Guess again! 
The ending comes as a complete surprise and will leave you feeling completely satisfied.
It’s every parents worst nightmare and one hell of a debut.
⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️💫 4.5/5 stars

A lazy weekend read about the slow, bitter unravelling of an Australian family. This is a disjointed narrative with different perspectives and modes of storytelling, some a bit easier to follow than others. Frew jumps between generations with out a lot of exposition so you need to be paying attention, but the writing is fluid and vivid.

Sunday morning peace. Up early and reading Silver by Chris Hammer. Martin Scarsden returns to the town where he grew up, confronting a past littered with regret and faced by the murder of an old friend. 😳 I really enjoyed Scrublands and the protagonist is flawed, likeable and authentic. .

Morning Reads | Alice to Prague by Tanya Heaslip.

How good is a read and a cuppa in bed on a weekend!? I snuck in the few chapters of this book this morning. And I’m hooked! 
The premise ... in 1994 Tanya leaves left her life as a Lawton outback Australia to travel post-communist Czech Republic.

A true tale of adventure and love.

Look who was visiting Kew East!! 🦴 
Idan just happened to be visiting his favourite chocolate shop (our gorgeous neighbours at Xocolatl) and being the sharp witted science writer that he is, he spotted that there was a new kids bookshop in town.......
......So he had to pop in and see us - yay!! 🖐 
We had a lovely chat.  However I may have snapped him as he pondered whether ‘Argh! There’s a skeleton inside you!’ should be shelved as a picture book or a fact and reference book. 🦴 
Wherever you might find it, you are in for an interactive treat as he and illustrator Julian Frost find a fun way of explaining how our hands are built and work.  Thanks for dropping in @idan.bb and so thoughtfully wearing stripes to match our rug!!

QOTD: What's your favorite uncommon fairy or folktale?
*
I love fairytales and folktales, especially the less well known ones. Everyone has heard of Rapunzel or Sleeping Beauty. But do you know the story of Baba Yaga's chicken-footed house and Vasilisa? Or the King of the Polar Bears?

GIANTS, TROLLS, WITCHES, BEASTS is a gorgeously illustrated retelling (in full graphic novel glory) of ten lesser known folktales from countries around the world. My favorite is THE DEVIL BRIDEGROOM (from Estonia) about a girl who outwits a pack of devils intent on marrying her off.

Big skies at Uphill beach, Somerset. There’s a scene from Nick, Amy and Bethany’s childhood that’s set here in ONE YEAR LATER.  And as there’s torrential rain in Somerset today, I’m missing the last of the summer sunshine.
