I know I say this every month but holy shit, July? Really? I feel like my head is still in March and I can’t quite believe that we are actually over half way through 2020. Which, aside from the arrival of Oliver, has been one sick fucking joke of a year. However, with that being said, I have done some amazing reading and it is time for me to share the books I read in June.
I’m not going to sell this to you as ground breaking literature, because it isn’t. What it is, is HIGHLY addictive angst & romance. They’re the typical bad boy/good girl storyline that I am a complete sucker for. There is an adaptation of the first book (it is a series) on Netflix that is.. okay.. but I will say the books are 100 times better. The second film is ready to be released, i’m just waiting not so patiently to find out when!
I have had this on my kindle for quite a while and whilst I did enjoy it, I found it didn’t live up to the hype that surrounds it! I was slightly disappointed by the ending and found the plot quite predictable. It is a really quick & lovely read – just not what I expected.
I had heard so much about this book & finally picked it up whilst it was 99p (which is still currently is at the time I am posting this) and i’m so glad I did. People rave about Mike Gayle’s writing and I wasn’t disappointed. Another quick read with such a lovely but heartbreaking plot. I absolutely loved the two main characters & the love they brought out in each other. Such a gorgeous story of siblings – watching their relationship develop melted me.
My favourite book of the month and the second book for an online book club I run “The Mummy Book Club“. This story broke my heart. A lot. It definitely affected me more due to the fact that I am a parent. I am a HUGE fan of Clare’s thriller novels so I knew I would enjoy this but it honestly took me by surprise just how much I loved it! It is devastating, poignant and so beautifully written.
This is your typical enemies to lovers romance that I love so much and this one was enjoyable, super easy read but nothing I haven’t read before. I absolutely loved the main character Charlotte – she was hilarious and sarcastic which are two of my favourite things! I’d definitely read more from this author.
I received this book from the publisher in exchange for an honest review.
I was sent this last year and have only just got around to picking it up & i’m annoyed it took me so long! The premise is basically if Love Island & Big Brother had a baby. It is addictive and made me laugh out loud numerous times. Such a clever book and the characters were so realistic. I loved it.
I’d love to know what books you read this month? Which was your favourite read?
