Here is a huge post of reviews from every book I read in 2017 – Phew!
I’ve declared my love for Mark Edwards’ books plenty of times on this blog, however, after reading Catch Your Death and being a tiny bit disappointed (it just wasn’t as amazing as his others!), I was a little wary about The Devil’s Work. I needn’t have worried. In true Mark Edwards’ style, it was breathtaking.
Okay, so I had decided a while ago to not write any individual book review posts and to group them together, however, for this book, I needed to give it its own post.
An advanced copy of this book was kindly sent to me for review by the publishers.
This book follows super popular, football star (of course) Ryden as he navigates life with a small baby after the death of his girlfriend to cancer. So, it’s pretty heavy, though ultimately enjoyable to read.
Paper Towns is my third favourite John Green Book. Looking for Alaska is my first, The-Book-That-We-Are-Not-Mentioning is the second. That’s not to say I don’t love it, I actually really enjoyed it, I just preferred the other two. That said, I was very concerned that the film wouldn’t do it justice…
I never, ever read thriller/crime books. For a start, I am far too anxious for anything like that, my imagination runs away with me and I cannot handle it. I’ve also never thought it would be something I could find myself interested in. So I have no idea how I ended up with this on my Kindle but after reading it I am so glad I did!
I wasn’t sure what to read after my current run of books was going so well, so it took a little while to find, but after perusing my Goodread’s bookshelf I decided I liked the look of this one (literally judging the book by the cover!).
A review of My Heart & Other Black Holes by Jasmine Warga. Here be spoilers!
First things first, I love Dawn. She is one of my favourite TV journalists and all-round heroes, so I am surprised it took me so long to get round to reading her first novel. Reading the blurb I thought it sounded interesting but it was the fact that it was her that really compelled me to read it. The story, …
“Butter’’ is one of those books that you’re not really sure how it ended up on your Kindle but you’re glad. I knew I wanted to read something less ‘heavy’ than a lot of the things I’ve read recently, and this seemed quite interesting. The plot is quite unusual, Butter is a morbidly obese teenager, who, fed up with being known for nothing other than his huge appetite, decides to eat himself to death, live on the internet on New Year’s Eve.
