Hey guys! I didn’t do too well with my reading this month. I read two full books and two short stories. Yup, not great! I found myself going into a bit of a slump, unfortunately. So I still have six books to read in December if I want to complete my reading challenge. But I have a week off at Christmas and no plans so I think this is plenty time to catch up if I fall behind.
1) The Devil’s Claw by Lara Dearman
If you’ve read my review for this then you will know that I really liked it but I just wanted it to be more exciting. It does suffer a little because it’s the first book in a series but I really liked all the characters. It’s about a serial killer who has been killing young girls for decades and making them look like suicides. Very interesting idea and I think Lara pulled it off really well. I just wanted the identity of the killer to be revealed earlier on because the book is nearly 400 pages long, but you don’t find out who the killer is until the last 20 pages or so. I think this is too long to wait and it needed to be revealed earlier. But I was kept in the dark the whole time and didn’t have a clue who the serial killer was. So I was quite surprised when it all came out which I liked!
