Hey guys! You are going to be so shocked and hopefully impressed with me! I managed to read nine books in May and I am so ecstatic! Of course it helped that I had a week off work and managed to read three books. I don’t know how people manage to read this many books every month, it was such a challenge for me but it was awesome constantly reading and not having a breather in between for work and other things! So without further ado, here it was I read this month:
1) Friend Request by Laura Marshall: I feel like if the publisher has to put “The most addictive thriller you’ll read this year” or similar on the cover, then the chances are that it’s not going to be very good and not addictive at all. Let me tell you that this book was so boring and it felt so ridiculous. It switched between an adult life and high school drama and it was exhausting trying to find reasons to care about these characters. It was such a disappointing story and there’s better thrillers out there for sure.
2) Copycat by Alex Lake: I liked this book, I thought the mystery was really good and I kept me guessing all the way through. It’s a psychological thriller because it twists everything and makes you think the main character is actually going crazy and forgetting what she is doing. The ending left me surprised and it actually strayed into some pretty dark stuff. I didn’t like the last few pages and would have preferred a different ending because it’s left on a cliffhanger and if it’s a standalone book that is annoying.
