My most recent book list

on July 3, 2014

So, I have about a months worth of book reviews to write up, so instead of writing long reviews, I’m going to give you my list of books, with a link to Goodreads to see what they are about and a one liner as to what I thought of it. That way you can make your own decision as to wether you fancy reading it or no;-)

The Golem and the Jinni – Helene Wecker

3* book, I enjoyed it but didn’t like the ending, her writing is enjoyable and the book was interesting with a dose of magical and reality meeting in the middle

Lost lake – Sarah Addison Allen

3* Sarah is one of my favourite authors as she always add in a touch of the magical into her writing where there is always an element of otherworldliness to her characters. I enjoyed this and if you are a fan of her writing, you should enjoy it.

Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children – Ransom Riggs

4* Thoroughly enjoyed this odd book where again fantasy meets reality ( are you detecting a theme from my choice of books here??) The ending was dreadful (in the fact that I wanted more and it just stopped!) but luckily there is the second one out so I would recommend that you have both on hand when starting the first one.

The House we grew up in – Lisa Jewell

3 and a half * Lisa Jewell books are always easy to read, and this one proved no different. I did enjoy this one as the issues it deals with are not your usual fare in a chick lit novel.

The Fault in our Stars – John Green

5* Tear fest of note! A simple love story between two young adults who have cancer. Beautifully written and just the most loveliest book I have read in a wee while. And go see the movie, but go prepared with tissues! And if you have not yet read this, do!

What have you read lately??

  1. I thoroughly enjoyed the Fault in the stars…and I have the Miss Peregrine’s home for peculiar children on my kindle…must still read it. Just finished The little coffee shop of Kabul and will be starting “The little old lady who broke all the rules” next.
