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.

April 2019 TBR!

Hey guys! Today I am bringing you my April TBR. I thought I should probably write it and publish it before I finish my first book which always seems to be the case. I am aiming to read four books this month but since I did fantastic job in March, hopefully I have another stellar reading month and surpass my target. Here’s what I’m hoping to read:

The Puppet Show by M. W. Craven: I’m currently reading this gruesome and disturbing story. It’s about a serial killer who burns people alive in the Lake District’s prehistoric stone circles and he leaves no clues behind. I’m 100 pages in and I’ve flinched so many times already at how descriptive it is. I was only a few pages in and I was squirming. It’s horrifying and I don’t even want to think what will happen towards the end. Also prehistoric stone circles have always scared the wits out of me because I grew up being told they were people who were turned to stone. So obviously I was terrified of going anywhere near them for most of my childhood and even now they still kind of scare me, so don’t ask me why I’m reading this! I was only few pages in and I was squirming. It’s horrifiying and I don’t even want to think what will happen towards the end.

August Book Haul!

Hey guys! Tell me I’m not the only one who thinks August has gone by really fast?? I can’t believe I’m posting my book haul already! I hope you have all had a fantastic month of reading and book buying! Here’s what I purchased this month:

Catwoman: Soulstealer by Sarah J. Maas: I have such a great story to tell on this! I pre-ordered both of these from Waterstones and the paperback version arrived fine (I love the purple sprayed edges, so beautiful!) but the hardback that was also signed arrived damaged. I’m always in my local shop and sadly this isn’t the first time one of my books has arrived damaged. I complained to them and they said since I’m a regular they will refund me and give me a brand new copy for free! So I actually didn’t even pay for my hardback copy in the end! I love the staff there so much, they are always so nice and cheery. Very grateful to them for giving me a copy for free! Saved me £12.99 to spend on another book!
