I’M STILL HERE CLELIE AVIT
After 5 months in a coma, Elsa’s family think she’s gone.
Elsa has been in a coma for five months. With all hope of reviving her gone, her family must face the devastating fact that it might be time to turn off her life support…They are unaware that in the past few weeks Elsa has regained partial consciousness; she knows where she is and can hear everyone talking around her bed, but she has no way of telling them.
Thibault is in the same hospital visiting his brother, a drunk driver recovering form a crash which killed two teenage girls. His emotions are in turmoil and, needing a retreat, he finds his way into Elsa’s room. Seeing her lying there so peacefully, he finds it hard to believe she is not just sleeping. And when he talks to her, he can’t help feeling that she can hear his every word…
With his world outside her room in chaos, Thibault begins to take refuge with Elsa regularly.
Elsa is overjoyed. Finally someone who speaks to her as if she is a real live person. Who brings colour to her drab existence. And gives her something to wake up for.
And so begins a love story that might just save both their lives. ..
I’m Still Here is Clelie Avit’s first novel to be translated into English. She is bursting with flair to tell a heart-felt story. Clelie is a real credit to Hodder & Stoughton and to her readers. I know I’m in a coma because I’ve heard them talking about it. I started hearing again six weeks ago, if my calculations are correct. Six weeks I’ve been awake. Six weeks and nobody’s noticed yet. After being buried under snow, Elsa is air lifted to hospital where she is put on life support. She can hear everyone talking to her. Thibault is in the same hospital visiting his brother who was drunk at the wheel and killed two teenage girls. Thibault thinks that it should be his brother in a coma and not this pretty young girl Elsa. Thibault takes time to just come and sit beside Elsa’ hospital bed side and talk to her. I’m Still Here, is the most beautiful read, for any readers book-case.

Let’s get one thing straight I’m not a psychic cop. I can’t predict the future. Nor do I possess some macabre ability to contact the dead. But something’s not right. Every time I get close to the body of a murder victim, they appear to me in the middle of the night. I’d like to say they turn up in my dreams. They appear when I’m awake, and engage with me. They’re always trying to tell me something.
There’s a red-light district in King’s Cross. The roads don’t go anywhere. They’re all cul-de-sacs. The council put up metal gates at the end of these roads. They were forcing punters to perform a series of tricky three-point turns would put them off. But the punters still came because the girls never left.
A body of a young prostitute has been found. Most of the prostitutes were hooked on smack or crack. Donal from the Cold Case Unit is analysing the unsolved murders of prostitutes in the city over the past few years. It is possible that there are links to this young girl murder and others. The men they fail to catch for the murders of these prostitutes may strike again.
Chilling, brutal, addictive. If you like reading Tim Weaver or James Oswald then your like reading Dance With The Dead by James Nally.
THINGS WE KNOW BY HEART JESSI KIRBY
After Quinn’s boyfriend, Trent, dies in an accident their junior year, she reaches out to the recipients of his donated organs in hopes of picking up the fragments of her now-unrecognizable life. But whoever received Trent’s heart has chosen to remain silent. The essence of a person, Quinn has always believed, is in the heart.

No matter how hard she’s falling for Colton, though, each beat of his heart reminds her of all she’s lost …and all that remains at stake.
Things We Know by Heart should be turned into a film.
I loved reading this story. What I liked about the story is that it was an emotional story on a subject that I don’t think any other author has ever gone before.
In Things We Know by Heart, Quinn Sullivan lost the love of her life when her boyfriend, Trent died unexpectedly. A year later through finding a blog she has finally tracked down the boy who Trent’s heart was donated to. But she never really meant to meet him. By chance Quinn meets up with nineteen year-old Colton Thomas who spent the last several years in and out of hospitals waiting for a heart transplant. Now that he’s finally received a new heart, Colton is regaining strength. He doesn’t want to know about the person who had to die so that he could live. It is not long and Quinn and Colton seem to be falling in love with each other. But there are so many things Colton doesn’t know. The story has loss and guilt, secrets and lies. Life and death, guilt and forgiveness. And love. Always love. I highly recommend this book to all readers and if you enjoyed The Fault In Our Stars then you will sure enjoy Things We Know by Heart by fabulous author Jessi Kirby.
