Today I’m participating in Sam’s WWW Wednesdays Here’s how it works:

The Three Ws are:

What are you currently reading?
What did you recently finish reading?
What do you think you’ll read next, and/or what are you eagerly awaiting?

I love Paula Daly’s books, and when I found her latest, Open Your Eyes, coming on July 26, I had to pre-order it.

Synopsis:  Haven’t we all wanted to pretend everything is fine? Jane doesn’t like confrontation. Given the choice, she’d prefer to focus on what’s going well, the good things in life. But when her husband, Leon, is brutally attacked in the driveway of their home, in front of their two young children, Jane has to face reality. As he lies in a coma, Jane must open her eyes to the problems in her life, and the secrets that have been kept from her, if she’s to find out who hurt her husband – and why. Maybe it’s time to face up to it all. Who knows what you might find . . .

PRAISE FOR PAULA DALY: `The UK’s answer to Liane Moriarty. Amazing.’ Claire McGowan; `Thoroughly enjoyable – a big-hearted, empathetic novel about ordinary lives and the tremors that can rock them.’ Guardian; Kept me guessing right until the end. I devoured it.’ Claire Douglas; `Deliciously dark and addictive. I defy anyone starts it not to race through the pages until they reach the final, brilliant twist.’ Colette McBeth;`She writes with a singular voice and a fierce passion that roars off the page.’ Daily Mail…


Another great week of engaging reads.  What was yours like?



  1. I really want to read Manhattan Beach as I’m trying to read all the books shortlisted for The Walter Scott Prize for Historical Fiction before the winner is announced later this month. I did have a copy of the book from my local library but I had to return it because someone else had it reserved so I couldn’t renew it. I’ll probably end up buying a copy.
