Thank you to Chicken House books for sending over a copy in exchange for an honest review. Continue reading “The Cantankerous Molly Darling by Alvy Carragher // Blog Tour”
‘Harvey Anderson is a twenty-six-year-old street performer from New Jersey. He likes his peaceful life, but everything he knows is turned upside down when he is abducted and beaten by a group of nondescript thugs. Working for a sinister man known as “The Spider,” these goons have spent the last nine years searching for Harvey’s girlfriend, Sally Starling. Now they think they know where she lives. And who she loves.
There’s only one problem: Sally is gone and Harvey has no memory of her. Which doesn’t make any sense, until The Spider explains that Sally has the unique ability to selectively erase a person’s memories. An ability she has used to delete herself from Harvey’s mind.
But as Harvey recovers from his beating, he discovers that Sally left him with one partial memory… a dancing girl in a blue dress.
Life isn’t peaceful for Harvey anymore, and he soon finds himself in a war he can never win.
Or can he?’
So today we’re doing something a bit different. After seeing Lauren and Sarah‘s posts, I thought this would be a perfect joint post for us to do. So the basic idea is to send each other a photo of our bookshelves, and below we’ve commented on what we love, what we want to read, and what we don’t recommend from the other persons bookshelves.
‘Charlie, a highly-strung, openly gay over-thinker, and Nick, a cheerful, soft-hearted rugby player, meet at a British all-boys grammar school. Friendship blooms quickly, but could there be something more…?’

You may be wondering, who are Two Book Thieves? Well, it’s us and we’re off our unplanned but lovely hiatus. Where are your January releases 2019, you may also be wondering. Well, they don’t exist but we hope you found something you loved in January. So without further ado, here are some February releases that we are excited for (in order of release!)
A huge passion of mine for a few years now has been Greek Mythology. I’ve always loved any kind of mythology but nothing captures my attention as much as Greek mythology. Here I’ve combined two loves – books and mythology to share some of my recommendations with you. Two of these are non-fiction and the rest are fictional retellings. Not included but I’d still definitely recommend The Iliad & The Odyssey but don’t feel like you need to read these in order to understand retellings. I hope you find something you love and if you have any recommendations, please leave them below. Continue reading “Book Recommendations // Greek Mythology”
