Full of twists and turns, 'Haven't They Grown' is a fast paced, unique story that I really enjoyed. I didn't see the ending coming and I was kept engaged throughout. It's 4 stars from me!
"Three Japanese Short Stories" is a tiny collection of short stories that won't take you long to read. For me they were just okay and nothing to shout home about - 2 stars for now.
"All The Wrong Places" wasn't my cup of tea. Sold as a thriller, this book is a little more chick-lit than suspense. I enjoyed some of the characters and their story lines but overall this is a 2 star read for me.
“I Know You” is a fast paced, gripping psychological thriller that I really enjoyed. It's certainly one that's going to make you think and perhaps review your privacy settings online too! It’s 5 stars from me!
It's my stop on the blog tour for "Death Makes No Distinction". This book tells the story of the murder of two very different woman living in Georgian London. The story was well written and I enjoyed trying to work out who was responsible for each of the deaths. This book gets 4 stars from me!
We stumbled across KönyvBár on a quick Google search for 'best restaurants in Budapest'. Google is not wrong, KönyvBár is a fantastic bookish experience that I'd highly recommend for your next trip to the Hungarian capital!
Despite starting this read with a great deal of optimism, "How to Play Dead" wasn't really my cup of tea. I was expecting a gripping thriller but instead this is more of a slow study if characters and their relationships. It's 2 stars from me for this one.
"Strange Weather in Tokyo" is a wonderful piece of uncluttered Japanese literature. This is a quirky romance that I'd recommend and I'm looking forward to reading more of Hiromi Kawakami's work. 4 stars!
“Corpses in Enderby” is another good piece of 1950s detective fiction by George Bellairs. This is a nice story, but just an okay 3 star read for me. I won't be ruling out Bellairs' books in the future though (there are loads more for me to read!)
“The Fire Starters” is a fantastical story like none I've ever read before. The description is vivid and the characters are likeable. I'd recommend this to those looking for something a little different – it's 4 stars from me.
