Yesterday saw the release of a new addition to Frances Brody’s Kate Shackleton Mysteries with Death at the Seaside.

When I was contacted by The Little Brown Group about the possibility of taking part in a Blog Tour to coincide with the release, I jumped at the chance. I had just listened to the audio book of Dying in the Wool- a complete impulse purchase from Audible- and had been pleasantly surprised to discover that the series is set in my home county of Yorkshire, with Kate hailing from my favourite city in the UK, Leeds.

It’s time for another review and this week it’s the turn of The Sham an indie YA novel by Ellen Allen. If you’re into thriller type stories with a murder mystery edge then this is absolutely the book for you. In fact, I’d recommend this to anyone; it’s one of the best books that I’ve read in a while and I was purposefully arriving at work half an hour early so that I could sit in the staff room and read before my shift.

Now that we’ve reached the very beginning of September, it’s about time to recap the books that I purchased last month, and I’ve had quite a successful month for books in August.

My purchases this month include (want to read about a particular book in the haul? Click the links below to take you to each section):
