Recent reads June/July 2019

Hi!Hope you’re all good. Sorry I haven’t written for so long I’ve recently started a new job so Have been kinda busy. Now that I’ve settled in I’m going to try to get back to writing these posts. Rather than doing a June wrap up because it’s a bit late now I thought i would do more of a recent reads so I’m going to talk about the last 5 books I’ve read and haven’t really spoken about.

The flatshare by Beth O’leary ⭐⭐⭐⭐

44907085. sy475

I’ve been really in the mood for adult romance recently and there’s so many good ones around at the moment so when I saw a signed edition in Waterstones I had to grab it and can say I was definitely not disappointed. This follows the story of Tiffy and Leon who share a flat and also a bed but have never actually met because they’re never in the flat at the same time so instead they communicate in notes and consequently start to develop a relationship. I really enjoyed this and there’s so much more in this than just the romance which I wasn’t expecting going in so that was a nice surprise.

Little monsters by Kara Thomas ⭐⭐⭐.5

I picked this book up on audio and read it in one day because it was so easy to be invested in. I haven’t read many young adult thrillers/mysteries and I know they can be pretty hit or miss so I wasn’t sure what to think going into this but I did really enjoy getting so involved in this and couldn’t put it down. This book has major Pretty little liars vibes and I was so here for it as that is one of my favourite shows ever, the ending of this had me so shook I thought I’d figured it all out but NOPE I was so wrong,

I let you go by Clare Mackintosh ⭐⭐⭐

This wasn’t one of the best thrillers I’ve ever read but like I said it’s not a genre I read an awful lot of although I am wanting to get more into the genre so I’m testing the waters. I did like this whilst I was reading it but I feel that it is a very forgettable read, It’s only been a week or so since I finished and I’ve already forgotten a lot of the details. I did appreciate that this book was set in England as it’s not something I see very often and really like when I do see it. I think the story from the detectives point of view was my least favourite bit I kind of wanted to skip these chapters at some points, I’m not sure if detective stories are my cup of tea.

The diary of a young girl by Anne Frank ⭐⭐

828513

Okay so I feel really bad rating this book so low but I just really struggled to get through this. Me and historical fiction have a difficult relationship but seen as this is non fiction I though I might enjoy it more but no It might have been even worse. I find the whole topic of the holocaust really interesting and do want to learn more about it but I don’t think this is the best way to consume this information because it was just so hard to get through, so disjointed and I couldn’t keep track of anything but I didn’t really care to be honest.

Wundersmith by Jessica Townsend ⭐⭐⭐⭐

I LOVE THESE BOOKS SO MUCH. I really enjoyed both of the books in this series series so far but I would have to say this one is slightly better than the first one. I adore the characters in these books so much and I know it gets compared to Harry #potter a lot but I firmly believe it gives off the same vibes and feel that same immersion I feel when I read both series. I loved that the stakes were heightened in this one and that because we already knew the already knew the world it was so easy to get back into the story.

Let me know what books you’ve been reading recently and I will try to get back to this blogging thing x
