I’m so excited to reveal Lisa Jewell’s book for 2019 called ‘The Family Upstairs’
What the back cover says –
You thought they were just staying for the weekend. They looked harmless enough – with only two suitcases and a cat in a wicker box.
But soon things turn very, very dark. It happens slowly, yet so extraordinarily quickly.
Now you and your sister must find a way to survive…
As a huge fan of Lisa’s books, I’m already on the countdown for this book!
You can pre-order The Family Upstairs from Amazon and will be available to buy good bookshops from 25th July 2019.
Christmas is nearly upon us and I’ve found myself writing my annual sign off instead of wrapping presents that are still in their bags. Last minute as always!
This year was a great year for books and I’ve even listed my top ten books for 2017, just incase you are looking for a few last minute stocking fillers.
It was also a great year for Handwritten Girl, as I attended the Bord Gais Energy Book Awards for the first time and had an amazing time meeting some of Ireland’s finest literary talent ans well as spending Halloween weekend learning about the dark and interesting world of crime writing.
Before I sign off, I would like to say a huge thank you to all the lovely publishers and authors who introduced me to some of the most wonderful books this year, from intense thrillers to happy romances, there’s something for everyone to curl up with during the cold winter nights.
Most importantly, thank you to the readers of the website for taking the time to read a review, tweet, Favourite or Like a post, your support is appreciated tremendously. I hope you all have a safe and relaxing Christmas and receive loads of treats from Santa Claus, especially books as there are some great ones out there.
Have a Happy New Year and I shall see you in 2018.
