#BookBingo2020 – Round 2: Themes of crime and justice

In the Clearing by J.P. Pomare

Often after having read a thriller, the most common thing you’ll hear is: ‘That twist!’ I can’t say that with this one though, because In the Clearing has as many twists as a wizened old oak tree. It’s imaginatively clever, laying down pavers to walk you in one direction only to explosively change direction – again and again.
It’s clever, gripping, thought provoking, and realistic enough to raise the hairs on the back of your neck.

A perfect choice for this bingo category of crime and justice themes!

Visit my full review on this book here.


I’ve teamed up once again with Mrs B’s Book Reviews and The Book Muse. It’s going to be a little different for 2020, the card has less squares, allowing us to run bingo on the second Saturday of each month. Also, for the first time since beginning bingo, I haven’t specified genre, type, or even fiction or non-fiction for the categories. 2020 is all about themes, and from there, the choice is wide open.

Hope to see you joining in! If you want to play along, just tag us on social media with your bingo posts each month. You can also join the Page by Page Book Club with Theresa Smith Writes over on Facebook, where we all post in the same place on the same date and chat over each other’s entries. Alternatively, drop a link each month into the comments of my Saturday bingo post so I can follow your progress blog to blog.

  1. Gahhh, I’ve had a copy of Call Me Evie sitting on my shelves for ages, and I really want to read it! (I ran out and picked it up after I heard an interview with JP, on The Garret I think, and he was so great) I’m kind of cranky at myself that now he’s released a follow up and I *still* haven’t got to it – thanks for the reminder!
