Our Stop | Laura Jane Williams
Pickpick

A great book with developed characters, a diverse range of relationships, and lots of feminism too. There are quite a few annoying little spelling/grammar errors, sometimes of main characters names or mistyping is as it which made me lose the flow of reading occasionally, but I don‘t think this by any means takes away from the fact that this is a lovely gentle read by a talented author. I look forward to seeing what Laura Jane Williams does next.

The Day of the Accident | Nuala Ellwood
Pickpick

A twisty tale that kept me constantly guessing, I kept having lightbulbs and then changing my mind, really thinking into it all, and still didn‘t manage to figure it out before the big reveal. The ending was crazy and perfectly executed. The best thing about the book was the dialogue, each character had their own unique voice, it is a skill of a truly talented writer. A great read where the pages are so easy to turn and you can‘t stop reading.

It was choppy and not a flowing storyline, which is why I am giving this book a so-so rating. I think the depth in which the characters are explored was great however, and especially enjoyed the exploration of Korede‘s guilt & reasoning in helping her sister; I also loved her intriguing and against all odds friendship with her patient Muhtar. I‘m on the fence with this one as I did love the overall premise but the format just wasn‘t my cup of tea.

Sace I did the audiobook for this and really liked it. 1mo
LaurenELovesToRead @RestlessFickleBookHoarder I did like it, I just found the book jumped around a lot and so was hard to follow, maybe the audiobook would have suited me better! I feel the audiobook may have allowed me to really get into the authors mind and move through the narrative with her, get what she wanted me to think and feel. I am not an audiobook person but it may have suited this particular book. (edited) 1mo

An Anonymous Girl | Sarah Pekkanen, Greer Hendricks
Pickpick

Well-written and addictive! An Anonymous Girl has now become the best book I‘ve read so far, overtaking The Farm. The characters are so deeply explored and at points you feel like you‘ve been pulled into their world. There is a twist and turn at every flip of a page, you think you understand it all- think it‘s all figured out- and then there‘s a spanner thrown in the works and then a spanner thrown at the spanner. A must read. A work of art.

It took a while to get off the ground, the final few scenes were worth the wait though. I think the ending was clever, and in ways was a cliff hanger- don‘t worry I won‘t spoil it. I wouldn‘t say that it‘s excellent, but it‘s a good read. If you‘re looking for an intense thriller, it‘s perhaps a bit tame and mild, it is interesting though and a good examination of loyalty.

On My Life | Angela Clarke
Pickpick

OMG I love this book! Do not go through life without reading On My Life by Angela Clarke; it is one of the best books out there! A really great insight into UK prison life, a strongly developed main character, it will make you cry, you‘ll be shocked by many twists, and the ending- with what she named her newborn child- made my heart melt.

The Whisper Man | Alex North
Pickpick

It‘s creepy but not terrifying. The ending is just right. I loved this book. A nice beginner horror-thriller I‘d say, not too much but not boring or holding back. If you want a well written debut to become addicted too, then The Whisper Man is the one for you.

Bunny: A Novel | Mona Awad
Pickpick

Amazing! I love Bunny by Mona Awad. Absolutely entrancing and hilarious. So confusing. Insane. Mad. Bonkers. Yet a complete and utter work of art. Read but don‘t expect it to be sensible. This is a cheeky piece of literature with many unexpected and rather, well, nuts twists!

The Farm: A Novel | Joanne Ramos
Pickpick

Best book I‘ve read so far. Tackles many issues and is written so well that you feel like you are watching a film, super visual. Discusses class, discusses what money can pay for, discusses rights to your own body. I love the multitude of perspectives and the ending made me tear up- perfect, as perfect as it could be considering the circumstances! Amazing writer, can‘t wait to see what Joanne does next.

Queenie | Candice Carty-Williams
Pickpick

A really important read, Queenie by Candice Carty-Williams tackles many real issues without being draining or heavy. It will make you laugh out loud and, although the ending could be a tad more satisfying, you‘ll be left wanting to befriend the main character!

The Flatshare: A Novel | Beth O'Leary
Mehso-so

The Flatshare by Beth O‘Leary is an enjoyable and light hearted read. I‘d call it cosy; perfect with a cup of tea, a warm duvet, and not too much distraction. I wouldn‘t call it gripping, and it‘s certainly not a masterpiece, but the storyline is original, and romantic in a more real life way than other rom coms, and their are some of the best side plots you‘ll ever come across (Mr Prior/Johnny White)
