I’ve seen this around quite a bit in these last few months and there are pretty good reviews for it. Plus the title itself is so creepy, it’s making me really want to read this.

Save Me From Dangerous Men by S.A. Lelchuck
Nikki Griffin isn’t your typical private investigator. In her office above her bookstore’s shelves and stacks, where she luxuriates in books and the comfort they provide, she also tracks certain men. Dangerous men. Men who have hurt the women they claim to love. And Nikki likes to teach those men a lesson, to teach them what it feels like to be hurt and helpless, so she can be sure that their victims are safe from them forever. Karen tells Nikki that there are people after her. Dangerous men. She says she’ll tell Nikki what’s really going on. But then something goes wrong, and suddenly Nikki is no longer just solving a case—she’s trying hard to stay alive.

The cover and title alone are enough to draw me in. But the synopsis just seals the deal, I’m so intrigued about this one, I need to get my hands on this!

The Handmaid’s Tale: The Graphic Novel by Renee Nault and Margaret Atwood
Everything Handmaids wear is red: the colour of blood, which defines us.
Offred is a Handmaid in the Republic of Gilead, where women are prohibited from holding jobs, reading, and forming friendships. She serves in the household of the Commander and his wife, and under the new social order she has only one purpose: once a month, she must lie on her back and pray that the Commander makes her pregnant, because in an age of declining births, Offred and the other Handmaids are valued only if they are fertile. But Offred remembers the years before Gilead, when she was an independent woman who had a job, a family, and a name of her own. Now, her memories and her will to survive are acts of rebellion. – Goodreads –
The Handmaids Tale is one of my favourite books ever! I’ve been really wanting to start graphic novels, so I think the perfect way for me to start is with a book that I know I already love. Have any of you read this? I’m really curious to find out more about it.

I’m a massive fan of this series, however I’m not fully caught up with the other 9 and I read some out of order which is frustrating. It may be a while before I get to this as I think I need to read them all in order first.

The Vanishing Season (The Collector #4) by Dot Hutchison
A recent abduction becomes an unexpected link to a decades-long spree of unspeakable crimes.
Eight-year-old Brooklyn Mercer has gone missing. And as accustomed as FBI agents Eliza Sterling and Brandon Eddison are to such harrowing cases, this one has struck a nerve. It marks the anniversary of the disappearance of Eddison’s own little sister. Disturbing, too, is the girl’s resemblance to Eliza—so uncanny they could be mother and daughter.
With Eddison’s unsettled past rising again with rage and pain, Eliza is determined to solve this case at any cost. But the closer she looks, the more reluctant she is to divulge to her increasingly shaken partner what she finds. Brooklyn isn’t the only girl of her exact description to go missing. She’s just the latest in a frightening pattern going back decades in cities throughout the entire country.
In a race against time, Eliza’s determined to bring Brooklyn home and somehow find the link to the cold case that has haunted Eddison—and the entire Crimes Against Children team—since its inception. – Goodreads –
I have written about the first 3 books in this series in an old blog post which you can find here. Now before you head over there, when I wrote it this series was just supposed to be a trilogy. I was shocked to discover that the author was releasing a new one. It has been on my NetGalley shelf for quite a while now, I’m too nervous to pick it up as I think it may spoil the ending of the trilogy. But I still need to find out if it lives up to the others…
Which books have recently been released that your dying to read but just haven’t got around to yet?
See you in the next one…
