Wow! Even the impending Christmas festivities haven’t stopped those great reviews (and votes) coming through.
I started the ‘Reblog Blog’ as a way of keeping track of all the great books that have been recently published or revisited and were in danger of being forgotten about by me.
Now with the help of this weekly poll, it is really helping me sharpen my focus on my TBR (which though more focused is growing at an alarming rate – a sign of some great writing out there, I guess!) Tall Oaks was one such book – it shot straight to my Book of the Year, and from what I have read has it has become a firm favourite with quite a few others in the blogosphere too.
So which novels are up for *voting this week (if you can’t remember what this is all about, scroll to the bottom of this post)?

Here’s this week’s Poll:
Here’s the result of last week’s Poll:
Joint first place this week. Two very different novels, but equally appealing; The Gift by Louise Jensen and Death Stalks Kettle Street by John Bowen each received 33.33% of the votes. So now the difficult decision of which one to award Novel of the Week… Ah, what the hell, it’s Christmas… BOTH win! Here’s a little more about each one:
Death Stalks Kettle Street by John Bowen
Some accidents are no accident…
Someone is murdering Greg Unsworth’s neighbours and staging the deaths to look like accidents.
Greg knows the truth, but when he’s grappling with OCD and simply closing his front door and crossing the road are a battle, how is he supposed to catch a serial killer?
From the internationally bestselling author of Where the Dead Walk, Vessel and Cold Sweats & Vignettes comes a cosy murder mystery with a difference…
Meet Greg Unsworth, afflicted with OCD, who begins to realize that a series of fatal accidents on his street are in fact a series of murders. After encountering Beth Grue at the scene of one such crime, the two bond over their shared fears and suspicions, and struggles: Beth has cerebral palsy. When the police repeatedly dismiss their concerns, they take matters into their own hands and attempt to discover the killer’s identity and expose him…

The Gift by Louise Jensen
The perfect daughter. The perfect girlfriend.
The perfect murder?
Jenna is given another shot at life when she receives a donor heart from a girl called Callie. Eternally grateful to Callie and her family, Jenna gets closer to them, but she soon discovers that Callie’s perfect family is hiding some very dark secrets …
Callie’s parents are grieving, yet Jenna knows they’re only telling her half the story. Where is Callie’s sister Sophie? She’s been ‘abroad’ since her sister’s death but something about her absence doesn’t add up. And when Jenna meets Callie’s boyfriend Nathan, she makes a shocking discovery.
Jenna knows that Callie didn’t die in an accident. But how did she die? Jenna is determined to discover the truth but it could cost her everything; her loved ones, her sanity, even her life.
A compelling, gripping psychological thriller with a killer twist from the author of the Number One bestseller The Sister.

Previous poll winners:
*Every week I am hoping to extract all the novel titles from my ‘Round Up Blog‘ and enter them into a poll. If a novel is not on the list it is because it didn’t appear in my blog during the week stated at the top of the poll. I’d love to know which novel (not review) was your favourite. If you haven’t read any of them, pick the one you would choose to read instead.
