Dead Man’s Footsteps by Peter James
This is the fourth book in the Roy Grace series and begins with a man who is in New York on the day of the 9/11 terrorist attacks. Then we find a body in a storm drain that’s been there for about 15 years. And finally we have a girl who has returned to England under a false name, clearly on the run from something. Right now, I’m not sure just how all of these stories are linked, but that’s what I love about Peter James, he’s good at threading stuff together but not before leaving you guessing. What I don’t like about the story so far is the new “hot shot” Cassien Pewe who is sniffing around the missing persons case of Roy Grace’s wife. Leave Roy alone!

Scrappy Little Nobody by Anna Kendrick
I’ve learned a lot about Anna Kendrick from this book, the number one revelation is that she loves smoking pot! Also that she is not prone to gossip. As much as I love a bit of dirt Anna kept it purely professional and only mentioned people whom I presume had given permission. I don’t think any less of her, in fact I only admire her more. She’s provided a new insight into Hollywood and I can’t help but think of her as not a celebrity, but just a regular person like the rest of us. The only difference is that she makes films for a living. She’s a girl you could pass on the street and think, ‘oh hey, I know her!’ and keep walking. Her anxiety was a comfort (sorry, Anna!) because it’s nice to know that even actors suffer mental health issues.

Conversations with Friends by Sally Rooney
A girl I work with introduced me to this book, as her roommate is friends with the author. Basically Sally Rooney sold this book for €500K and I want to know what half a million reads like! But the story also sounds good!
Six Four by Hideo Yokoyama
I’ve actually had this book right beside my bed for months now and yet I forgot about it. I even remember buying it, allowing myself just one book in one of my favourite bookshops. I can’t actually remember what it’s about though, and I’m too lazy to check Goodreads.
