It's my stop on the blog tour for "The Favour" by Laura Vaughan, an atmospheric character study of a group of privileged young people. For the most part I found this to be an immersive read and I really liked the ending. It's 4 stars from me!
"The Midnight Library" by Matt Haig is a really quick read that'll plummet you into a magical world. I really enjoyed the concept and the thought provoking questions that it sparked. Some lives were more memorable than others but this is still a really great five stars from me.
It’s another 3 stars from me for "A Stanger in the House" by Shari Lapena. This is a contemporary thriller that I enjoyed, but wasn't amazed by. Recommended for fans of the author!
It's my stop on the blog tour for "The Last Snow", a dark, atmospheric crime drama that I really enjoyed. It's well written and so descriptive. I think fans of the genre will love this one, it's a big 4 stars from me!
"If You Could Go Anywhere" is a nice read, but it sadly didn't blow me away. It was a little slow moving and I wasn't too keen on the characters. I'm very open to other Paige Toon reads, but this one was a 2 star read for me.
"The Move" was another 3 star read for me. The writing was good and there were lots of lovely descriptions, but the plot didn't really have much to offer. Recommended for fans of a domestic drama, rather than a thriller or mystery.
Norwegian Wood” by Japanese author Haruki Murakami had been on my list for a while but unfortunately it didn't turn out to be my cup of tea. I enjoyed the writing style and some of the more poignant chapters but struggled quite a lot with the plot. This was a 2 star read for me.
"Such a Fun Age" is a topical read that I believe is worth the hype it's getting. I appreciate how the author has managed to leave us thinking about some really important topics, without being preachy. I sped through this and will happily give it a big 5 stars!
'Ignatius' by Dan Wood is an exciting page turner that I really enjoyed. It's well detailed and has plenty of chapter cliff hangers that'll make you want to keep reading. The characters are likeable and I hope this isn't the last we see of this pairing. I'm giving 'Ignatius' a great big 5 stars!
It's my stop on the blog tour for "Crocodile Tears", my first crime fiction read of the year and also my first read from Uruguay. I was pleasantly surprised by this comic caper and especially it's quirky characters. A really enjoyable 4 stars from me!
