TheBookTrail roundup of Travels via books in October

  • Submitted: 31st October 2019

October was a good month for brilliant books

There are some months where you really feel spoiled as a reader. I had so many books I wanted to read then and there. Some I read as soon as I got them as I was too excited to wait until October. I love looking back at my bookish journey for the past month as there are so many memories to look back on..Postcards of Literary holidays!


TheBookTrail roundup of Travels via books in October

Where did we BookTrail travel to in October?

Between the Stops on a London bus with Sandi Toksvig

We took the bus with Sandi Toksvig!

Crime Mystery set in Ireland -The Impostor by L J Ross

We moved to Ireland with L J Ross

A new series from L JRoss saw the landscape change from Northumberland to Ireland. New detective team and new intrigue!

Story of love set in New Zealand - One Winter Morning by Isabelle Broom

Remember the visit to New Zealand with Isabelle Broom?

This is a writer who can transport you in a few words and pages, so imagine an entire novel set across in New Zealand where the story is of a woman on one remarkable journey herself? Immersive is not the word.


We visited Africa on a search for The Sun Sister by Lucinda Riley!

This is the latest thrilling installment about the Seven Sisters who are all adopted and who lived with their father on the shores of Lake Geneva. When he dies, the secrets of their adoptive heritage comes out. The Seventh Sister is still missing however…

Ghost story set in gothic England - The Lost Ones - Anita Frank


AND….The best book of the month ( in my eyes) and perhaps even of the year – THE LOST ONES by ANITA FRANK

England , a fictional location, but a very very real gothic atmosphere and chilling feel of a mansion
