Title: The Dirt by Mötley Crüe

Format: Audiobook

Rating: ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

5 word review: Shocking, explosive, gripping, eye-opening, unpausable.

Purchase link: here

The most influential, enduring, and iconic metal band of the 1980’s reveals everything a tell-all of epic proportions.

This unbelievable autobiography explores the rebellious lives of four of the most influential icons in American rock history.

Mötley Crüe was the voice of a barely pubescent Generation X, the anointed high priests of backward-masking pentagram rock, pioneers of Hollywood glam, and the creators of MTV’s first “power ballad.” Their sex lives claimed celebrities from Heather Locklear to Pamela Anderson to Donna D’Errico. Their scuffles involved everyone from Axl Rose to 2LiveCrew. Their hobbies have included collecting automatic weapons, cultivating long arrest records, pushing the envelope of conceivable drug abuse, and dreaming up backstage antics that would make Ozzy Osbourne blanch with modesty.

Provocatively written and brilliantly designed, this book includes over 100 photos, many never before published, for the most exciting and insightful look ever into the Crüe.

Title: The Assistant by Kjell Ola Dahl, translated from Norwegian by Don Bartlett

Format: Gifted proof, purchased ebook

Thoughts so far: Intoxicating, captivating, brilliant.

Purchase Link: Here

Release date (PB): 29th April ’21

Oslo, 1938. War is in the air and Europe is in turmoil. Hitler’s Germany has occupied Austria and is threatening Czechoslovakia; there’s a civil war in Spain and Mussolini reigns in Italy.

When a woman turns up at the office of police-turned-private investigator Ludvig Paaske, he and his assistant – his one-time nemesis and former drug-smuggler Jack Rivers – begin a seemingly straightforward investigation into marital infidelity.

But all is not what it seems, and when Jack is accused of murder, the trail leads back to the 1920s, to prohibition-era Norway, to the smugglers, sex workers and hoodlums of his criminal past … and an extraordinary secret.

Both a fascinating portrait of Oslo’s interwar years, with Nazis operating secretly on Norwegian soil and militant socialists readying workers for war, The Assistant is also a stunningly sophisticated, tension-packed thriller – the darkest of hard-boiled Nordic Noir – from one of Norway’s most acclaimed crime writers.

Title: The Forgotten Waltz by Anne Enright

Format: Paperback

Purchase link: here

If it hadn’t been for the child then none of this might have happened.
She saw me kissing her father.
She saw her father kissing me.
The fact that a child got mixed up in it all made us feel that it mattered, that there was no going back.

  1. I did a similar post earlier in the week though wasn’t clever enough to think of the last, now, next prompts. very clever
    By the way, the colour you used for the blurb is very difficult to read against your dark background. Can I suggest you go for white to give you a better contrast?

    1. I saw the prompt on Instagram and thought it was a great idea! Feel free to use it! Thankyou, I didn’t realise, I’ve changed the colour now so I hope it helps! X
