Least Favourite Books of 2019!

Hey guys! Today I am bringing you my least favourite books of 2019 – these are all books I rated one star. I really didn’t enjoy these but that doesn’t mean that they’re bad books, they just weren’t for me. So let’s get into it!

How I Lost You by Jenny Blackhurst: I was super disappointed with this because it was one that I’d been really looking forward to reading; I was intrigued by the synopsis and I enjoyed the first couple of chapters that I read on my phone. It’s about a mother who believes she murdered her baby after suffering from postnatal depression. But her world is turned upside down when a recent photograph of her son is pushed through her letter box and she questions whether her son is still alive after all. I struggled so much with it and there was so many times that I nearly didn’t finish it. I didn’t like any of the characters, especially the mother. I thought the plot was incredibly far-fetched and very messy overall.

Cross Her Heart by Sarah Pinborough: I know I rated all of these books one star but I think my most disliked book was most definitely Cross Her Heart. I said the plot for How I Lost You was bad but this was even worse. Two 11 year olds make a pact and when one of them breaks it, the other can’t move on and bides her time, determined to get revenge. She literally waits until they are adults to get her revenge and I thought that was completely ridiculous. Who even takes pacts seriously when they are 11? Just forget about it and move on like normal kids. I couldn’t stand either of them, both as children and as adults. This was a huge struggle to finish and I wish I didn’t because the ending was not worth it.

April 2019 Wrap Up!

Hey guys! I absolutely smashed it again this month. Don’t ask me how but I managed to read 10 books and 1 comic. I never read this many books in one month but lately I have been flying through my TBR! All the books I read were crime thrillers which were all vastly different from one another. I seem to be in a crime mood lately and I’m loving it! Here’s what I read in April:

The Puppet Show by M.W. Craven: This is the first book in a series and I don’t think I will be reading the second one. My favourite thing about this was the gruesome plot. It was absolutely horrifying as people were literally being burned alive at a stake and to make it even more chilling, it was all happening in prehistoric stone circles. Talk about unsettling! Sadly what let this book down was the characters. They were not likeable at all and they didn’t feel fully fleshed out. It felt like they were all missing something but I couldn’t quite put my finger on what it was. I also didn’t like the writing that much — it just wasn’t pulling me. I didn’t find the story engaging at all; I could have easily put the book down and not picked it back up. After hearing everyone raving about this I was sadly left feeling disappointed.

Lies by T.M. Logan: T.M. Logan has easily shot to the top of my list for authors to watch out for. We’ve all made split-second decisions and not really considered the consequences because usually it pays off. But what if it didn’t? What if your decision actually had dire consequences and your life is thrown into crisis? This is the situation Joe finds himself in after defending his wife from a family friend. From this moment on, his life will never be the same and he is forced to question whether he can really trust those closest to him. I loved this book so much! It was such a creepy and unsettling thriller, full of so many jaw-dropping twists! I was on the edge of my seat throughout and I didn’t see the ending coming at all.

May Book Haul!

Hey guys! I can’t believe it’s June on Friday, this year is going by way, way too fast! I feel like this year has gone by in such a blur. I feel like my book haul posts are slowing down now and I’m actually reading more books that I am buying. My May haul was small and I am pleased with what I have acquired this month. Three I purchased myself and one was sent to me for review: So without further ado, here is my May haul:

Charmcaster1) Charmcaster by Sebastien De Castell

I am actually in love with the covers for this series! They are so bright, so eye-catching and so damn beautiful! I was so excited when this book came out and I’m actually already halfway through it now! Expect to see it on my May wrap up, woop! I ordered a signed copy, but unfortunately it arrived damaged! I’m getting a replacement though so fingers crossed that one arrives in perfect condition! I thought I’d read this now though so I can keep my replacement nice! I’m being sneaky. From how much I have read of this so far, I love how each book has new characters and is in a different setting, it makes it that more exciting! I still love Kellen, he is so adorable.
