I can’t quite believe the 5th month of the year is already over!
It has been a fast year, it has been a good year and I have high hopes for the remaining 7 months.
I am still completely in love with book blogging and the supportive booky community. And twitter. I spend far too much time on Twitter. I’ve discovered so many fantastic blogs and tripled my TBR pile – I now must have a lifetime of books in my wishlist. But too many books to read is never a problem.
So if you visit my blog or tweet with me over on twitter – Thank you!
May was also all about making memories – We had a fantastic family holiday. I would very much recommend The Holiday Village in Majorca – it was great. And I had a small wee person who loved the poolside dance parties. Majorca was fabulous. I would go back tomorrow! Have you been? Have you any upcoming holiday plans?
I only read 1 book in the sunshine – it was the aptly named – The Holiday by T. M Logan. Have you read it? It was good, and my review will be posted next month.
Have you had a good May? Did you read lots of great books?
I reviewed quite a few books:
The dangerous kind by Deborah O’Connor – HERE
The characters, well some of them were good, but they all made for a gripping read and in particular, I loved Jessamine.
BUT and it’s quite a big but…
The suspects by Katharine Johnson – HERE
As I said there was a lot to like.
But for some reason or another I just didn’t get invested in the story. It wasn’t quite the book for me.
Hunting Evil by Chris Carter – HERE
I love Chris Carter’s writing style and his short, little and snappy chapters and the way he succeeds at making a small cliffhanger at the end of almost each one.I find myself regularly thinking, what harm can one more 3 or 4 page chapter do and then I suddenly realise that it’s 2 am and my alarm is set for 6 am.
Stone Mothers by Erin Kelly – HERE
I thought that the whole thing was well written, and I loved the history of the Victorian hospital – The Stone Mother.
I don’t think I’ve read anything quite like it.
The Evidence Against You by Gillian McAllister – HERE
I just can’t say I loved it. Don’t get me wrong I thought that it was good, well written and a had decent plot.
I thought that The evidence against you was a solid read. Solid.
The killer you know by S.R. Masters – HERE
It was good, it had me hooked right from the start and most importantly (for me) it kept me guessing. I changed my mind about the Who, What, Why, When and Where, regularly as I was reading.
The mystery was a mystery.
Wilderness by B.E Jones – HERE
It was a character driven, slow burn story with an unreliable narrator, it drew me in from page one. I finished the whole thing in just under two days. I read Wilderness in every spare moment I had, and it kept me up late at night. Is there any better sign than a book that keeps you awake and reading at night time?
And I was also very lucky!
