Happy New Year, all!
So, it’s January – a time when I should be motivated and invigorated and firing on all cylinders, ready to take on the mammoth task of writing (*suddenly feels weak*) Book Three. The final edits for Book Two in the MacReady series, ‘Splinter’, are resting with my publishers, so my new one, which has been simmering away nicely in my head for such a long time, should now be ready to explode onto the page…. Fingers crossed!
Anyway, back to the last seven days. Take a look a this week’s selection of books eligible for voting- there are way too many good ones to choose from!
Here’s this week’s Poll:
Here’s the result of last week’s Poll:

This Week’s Joint Winners:
Bloq by Alan Jones
A gritty crime thriller. Glasgow man Bill Ingram waits in the city’s Central Station to meet his daughter, returning home from London for Christmas. When the last train pulls in, and she doesn’t get off it, he makes a desperate overnight dash to find out why. His search for her takes over his life, costing him his job and, as he withdraws from home, family and friends, he finds himself alone, despairing of ever seeing her again.

*Every week I 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.
