June 2019 TBR!

Hey guys! Today I am bringing you my June TBR. I read quite a lot of crime thriller last month so for June I want to mix it up a bit and read some fantasy! Here’s what I want to read:

Wildcard by Marie Lu: I read Warcross on the weekend and it was actually really good! It was action-packed and had really interesting characters. I became so invested in the story and I loved the massive twist at the end! I ordered Wildcard straight away and I cannot wait to read it now! I’m so, so excited to see what happens and who’ll come out on top since I don’t think Marie follows conventional endings.

May 2019 Wrap Up!

Hey guys! Today I am bringing you my May wrap up. I read a decent amount but I am a bit disappointed as I wanted to read a ton more. Sadly I got ill towards the end of the month and it ground my reading to a complete halt. Very frustrating but not a lot you can do! I managed to read six books which I think it’s still pretty good and nearly all of them were part of a series. Here’s what I read:

Warlock Holmes: The Sign of Nine by G.S. Denning: This is the fourth book in the Warlock Holmes series and if you haven’t heard of these books before just think of a fantasy version of Sherlock Holmes. G.S. Denning brings another round of twists to the original Sherlock Holmes stories with The Sign of Nine. While not as funny as the first couple books in the series, I still found this one really creative and witty; it was filled with so many bizarre and hilarious moments. If you are a fan of the originals I highly recommend these books.

The Manhattan Project by Paul McNeive: This is a bioterrorism thriller and it’s an incredibly harrowing story. It revolves around one man’s thirst for revenge and his plan to kill millions of innocent people. The thing that shocked me the most about reading this was how frighteningly real it seemed. I couldn’t get the thought out of my head that this is something that could easily happen in real life. It was a really tense and gripping thriller – certainly one that will stay with me for a while!

Top 5 Wednesday: Books featuring Mental Health

Hey guys! Today I am bringing you a post about books featuring mental health. Admittedly, I haven’t read many books that revolve around mental health but the few I’ve read I’ve really enjoyed and they have been some of my favourite reads. So I definitely need to find more books with this topic. Here’s my picks:

A World Without YouA World Without You by Beth Revis:

This was the first YA book I read about mental illness and I completely fell in love with the story. I thought it was such a captivating read and was told beautifully. I loved how the author combined mental illness with time travel and if you didn’t know Bo had a mental illness, you’d actually believe he really was a time traveller. That’s probably one thing I’d changed about this book because I think it would have had a bigger impact if it was revealed at the end that he is actually seriously ill and suffers from delusions. It’s heartbreaking how the girl he loves suffered from severe depression and committed suicide but he’s acting like she is still alive because he couldn’t live in a world without her. We also got to see how Bo’s illness affects his family, his sister in particular. Her whole life becomes overshadowed by her brother and everything revolves around him. But then his parents shut out his illness pretend he’s fine. It’s an incredibly moving story and I really can’t recommend it enough.
