8 small book reviews.

I’m so lucky I get a 30min train to work which gives me time to sit and read every day. I just love getting into a good book and closing off from the world around me. Here are some of my recent reads over the past few months.

the note
The Note By Zoe Folbigg

Based on the authors true story of falling in love with a man on the train and how they went about their seperate lives until one day they met and … well, you’ll have to read the book and find out what happens. A lovely little read.

 

the vegetarian
The Vegetarian By Han Kang

This book was translated into English and is about two sisters and their marriages and lives. I found it strange but intreguing, left me wanted to read more. The story is based on one of the sisters deciding to give up meat one day and how it effected her life and her family. It’s beautifully written and really grabs you, the whole time I felt on edge like something crazy would happen any minute.

 

little fires
Little Fires Everywhere By Celeste Ng

This book was talked about in a magazine and I’d seen a few celebs have been talking about it too. I struggled to get into this book and it wasn’t until the 2nd half that I really started to enjoy it. I ended up loving it and could definately see it being made into a film.

 

hot mess
Hot Mess By Lucy Vine

I hadn’t read anything from Lucy Vine before but heard she was really funny on her podcasts. This book was such a great laugh out loud read! Highly reccomend if you want a fun book to laugh along with.

 

power
The Power By Naomi Alderman

So many people were talking about this book so I bought it. Unfortunately I didn’t enjoy the style of writing and found it really hard at times to understand although the concept and main story line was brilliant and there were parts that really grabbed me!

 

couple nxt door
The Couple Next Door By Shari Lapena

This is a good thriller with such a good twist near the end! I really didn’t see it coming, which I loved!

 

accident
The Accident By S.D Monaghan

This was a good read although I felt stressed for one of the characters throughout most of this book. I guess thats the sign of a good thriller when you imagine it’s real!

 

dance
Pretending to Dance By Diane Chamerlain.

This book was the most beautiful book I’ve ever read! Honestly, it was so gorgeously written through the eyes of a young girl growing up with a disabled father whom she really looked up to. I don’t want to give anything away but this book will have you laughing and crying. It’s stunning
