Top 5 Tuesday is hosted by Meeghan Reads.
This was one of the last books I bought in 2020.
I haven’t read anything by Linwood Barclay before, but he’s one of those authors whose name you’re dimly aware of because it crops up all the time, and Elevator Pitch has received a lot of hype.
Haven’t They Grown
Before reading Sophie Hannah’s revival of Hercule Poirot, I wanted to try one of her own novels, and this one stood out to me.
The Mirror and The Light
I’m excited to finally get my hands on the third Thomas Cromwell book.
After some research when reading Wolf Hall, I know how Cromwell met his end, so it will be interesting to see how Mantel puts her spin on that, while bringing her trilogy to a conclusion.
This was an impulse buy, because I’d been seeing people’s reviews and posts on it everywhere. I have no idea what to expect, but I have high hopes and how can Tom Hanks let us down?
The Sentence Is Death
The first I’d read of Anthony Horowitz was his new Sherlock Holmes novel, The House Of Silk, but it was his sequel, Moriarty, which made him one of my all time favourite authors.
The plot twist in that book still amazes me (although I’m sure if you were to read enough Goodreads reviews you’d find someone who said they saw it coming), and I can’t wait to get started on his newest release.
