  3. Hi Lucy,

    You managed to amass a great haul of new titles this week, despite the holiday weekend. I haven’t read any of them, although a couple did catch my eye.

    ‘The Secrets We Keep’ sounds really intriguing and of course, who can resist anything with book in the title, so ‘The Bookseller’ has to be on the list, especially as one of the previous commenters also enjoyed it!

    I hope that you enjoy them all and have a good week,
