Good morning loves!
I cannot believe we are here again, the end of another month. It’s July on Monday…. Where is the year going?! Anyway, if you follow me on Twitter you’ll know that I’ve been suffering with chronic health problems this month which has meant I haven’t read as much as I would have liked to but let me tell you, the books that I did read were exceptional, nothing below a 4 star read!
The Colour of Bee Larkhams Murder by Sarah J Harris
I started this one off at the end of May but continued it into June. I can honestly say I have never read anything like this. Jasper has Synaesthesia and paints the sounds he hears in the most vivid of colours. So what happens when Bee Larkham is murdered? Adored this one and now want to read everything by Sarah J Harris. 5/5 stars!
I Never Said I Loved You by Rhik Samadder
I first heard about this book at the beginning of the year, and a Headline event in Bath. At that point in time, the book wasn’t finished but after talking to Rhik, I knew I needed to get my hands on a copy as soon as I could. There’ll be a full review of this coming very, very soon! 5/5 stars without a shadow of a doubt!
No Big Deal by Bethany Rutter
The kind of book I needed when I was a teenager. Actually, it’s a book almost 30-year old me needed too! Honest, funny and most importantly, authentic. Emily as a protagonist is brilliant and I’d love to read more about her. 5/5 stars!
Ordinary Girls by Blair Thornburgh
This was a lovely holiday read for me. A modern take on Sense and Sensibility with two sisters who couldn’t be more different but who could not live without each other. Ginny and Plum are lovely characters and I would recommend this if you are looking for a lovely summer read! 4/5 stars.
On My Life by Angela Clarke
Okay, so I snagged myself a copy of this from the lovely publishers after Danielle kept going on about it. Having trained in similar fields, I really trust her judgements when it comes to thrillers. She said I needed it, and she was right. Compulsively page-turning and it had me biting the skin around my fingers until the very last page. 5/5 stars!
Looker by Laura Sims
For such a short book, Looker really packs a punch. I struggle to put this one into genre categories because it has so many elements from so many. The overall feeling I got when reading this book was claustrophobia and a sense of unease. Which again, is no mean feat for a such a short book. Strangely though, I found myself rooting for the unnamed narrator. Will you too? 4/5 stars.
A World Without Princes by Soman Chainani
I just love this series. It’s so quick and fun I’ll definitely end up reading the whole series. There are 5 books currently published with the most recent published this year and I hope there will be more to come. So what if it’s not good versus evil anymore, what if it’s girls versus boys? Will Sophie and Agatha be able to save everything? 4/5
And there we have it my loves, my very brief June wrap-up! While I may not have read loads of books this month, the ones I did read were brilliant! Have you read any of these? What did you think? Let me know in the comments!
Peace and pages
