Today I want to do a short post sharing one of the latest boks to arrive on my doorstep from publisher HQ. 🙂 I’m already reading this book as I type this blog post up and there will be a review of it up at the end of this week or the begining of next, for a blog tour (HQ are a little flexible in their tour dates), however I’ve had my eye on this book for quite a while before I ever got a tour invite, ever since I first saw it on NetGalley and found myself intriguied first by the cover and then the description.  Let’s take a closer look…

Such a Good Mother by Helen Monks Takhar – Rose O’ Connell aspires to be the perfect mother.
When she receives an unexpected invitation into The Circle, an elite clique of beautiful, wealthy and connected mums at her son’s exclusive school, it seems her dreams are about to come true.  Every mother would kill for an invitation, and once she joins, Rose’s social status soars.
But what is each woman hiding beneath her immaculate exterior?  Why did a previous member take their own life?  And why have they singled out unassuming Rose to take her place?
Rose is about to find out that perfection comes at a price…


Doesn’t this sound so interesting, and isn’t the cover so enticing.  There’s just something about it that really stands out to me, and the description also made me really eager to read this.  I wasn’t expecting it to be a hardback book, but I am already enjoying this and will have a review for you close to the start of next week, so please do look out for that. 🙂  In the meantime, it’s the start of August, tell me what you are looking forward to reading this month. 🙂
