But here is my January book haul for you all to enjoy!

And before you all start jumping to conclusions, no I am not pregnant. I have applied to go back to uni to study midwifery and have my interview coming up. So thought I would do some reading on the topic so I have something to talk about at the interview :)

Bought a lot more than I intended to this past month, although it was my birthday and I decided to spend some of my birthday money on books. I did go a little out of my comfort zone this time, buying some popular/recent adult books instead of YA. Really want to try some new genres this year.
I don't think I will be doing a big haul like this again for a while, as currently I have 420 un-read books on my shelves! So I will be trying to make a dent in those ones after I've finished the library books!

    “Psychological thrillers aren’t usually my thing, but I have to say this was well done. The author has a few fun and thought-provoking twists on the terror genre that, if not completely unique, are still rarely seen.... While it starts dark and tragic, there truly is a happy ending. There is no gratuitous sex or violence. What little you’ll find is tasteful and actually relevant to the plot.”
    Richard A. Peters--Goodreads

    New Psychological Thriller Explores Relationships Between Main Characters

    Terror at Mirror Lake

    If you think Hannibal Lecter was evil, wait until you meet Luke Downing, a killer so evil he makes Lecter look like an altar boy.

    Terror lurks in the shadows of Mirror Lake, where secrets of sex, lies, and death are all patiently waiting to surface from its murky depths. The small town of Hamptonville seems the last place you would find sadistic sex, drugs, blackmail, and murder. But that’s exactly what Bruce Orum, his girlfriend Cindy Garvey, and two married couples encounter when they meet Luke Downing, a psychopath who takes pleasure by inflicting pain on his victims. At Mirror Lake Downing takes the two married couples prisoner and plans to torture and humiliate them before killing them. But he does not know that Sheriff Jeff Parker and his partner Molly Hutchison are on his trail and determined to stop him. From page one all the way to the breathtaking ending, you will find yourself on pins and needles waiting to see what happens next.

    Terror at Mirror Lake is more than just another psychological thriller. In its pages the author describes the causes of Luke Downing’s evil nature, his relationships with others, and the relationships between the two married couples he plans to torment and kill.
