Well, the writing has most definitely been on the back burner the past seven days. Winter has finally arrived in our part of Portugal – the heavy frost is here and the February rains are on their way. So, instead of writing my new novel, I have been chopping wood and cementing crumbling walls in preparedness while my characters develop and have conversations and full blown arguments with each other in my head (totally normal, right?).
So, what novels made it on to the poll this week, and which one won last week?
Here’s this week’s Poll:
Here’s the result of last week’s Poll:
There was a bit of a fight between Dead Gone by Luca Veste and The Dry by Jane Harper for the top spot this week, but when the votes were counted it was Dead Gone that snatched it with 33.33% of the votes. The Dry by Jane Harper followed a close second place with 29%, with Rattle by Fiona Cummins taking a deserved third place with 16.67%.
This Week’s Winner:
Dead Gone by Luca Veste
The young girl you have found isn’t the first experiment I’ve carried out. She won’t be the last.
A tense, unpredictable crime debut that will not only have you gripped, but will chill you to the bone. Perfect for fans of Stuart MacBride and Mark Billingham.
A serial killer is stalking the streets of Liverpool, gruesomely murdering victims as part of a series of infamous, unethical and deadly psychological experiments.
When it becomes apparent that each victim has ties to the City of Liverpool University, DI David Murphy and DS Laura Rossi realise they’re chasing a killer unlike any they’ve hunted before – one who doesn’t just want his victims’ bodies, but wants their minds too.
With a series of psychological twists Dead Gone will keep you guessing until the very end.

*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.
