Hi guys! Today I am finally sharing my absolute favourite tag ever and that is the mid-year freak out book tag, where I discuss all the incredible books I’ve read this year! But first, my Goodreads challenge: I have read 41/80 books this year so far.
I’m definitely not reading as much this year since I’ve been doing other things. I’ve been watching more TV shows and playing more video games which I’ve been really enjoying. I have picked up reading more in the second half of the year and I should just about manage to read 80 books. Now let’s discuss all the amazing books I’ve read this year so far!
Best book you’ve read so far in 2021
My favourite book this year so far is definitely The Wild Girls by Phoebe Morgan. I’ve heard of this author before but this is the only book of hers that I’ve read and that will change given how much I loved this one. It’s a thriller that follows four friends who go on a luxury retreat to South Africa when they reunite for a birthday celebration. Alice, Grace and Hannah agree to meet their friend Felicity there, but once they arrive there’s no sign of Felicity or the party that was promised and they are alone in the wild. From that point onwards, their idea of a birthday bash is quickly dampened by their eerie surroundings and the sinister notes that are left in the girls’ lodges. I was very impressed with how quickly Morgan managed to create such a menacing setting and it left me constantly on edge because I always had the sense that something bad was going to happen. There was never a dull moment as the book flipped between the past and present as it told the story of how these “Wild Girls” went from being the best of friends to complete strangers. This is a book you’ll start reading and end up devouring in one sitting. It’s a very well-crafted story that oozes tension right from the start and has a killer twist at the end.Continue reading
