50 Book Challenge (part 4)

I feel like my love of reading has returned, and it’s wonderful. It’s entirely possible that starting up my book blog helped with the return of reading motivation, but who knows. I’m just glad this feeling is back and I hope it’s here to stay! Here’s what I’ve been reading lately:

Luckiest Girl Alive by Jessica Scholl – 9/10 – This is my favourite book of the year so far. Actually, I’d say it’s probably tied with The Kind Worth Killing (see below) for that coveted number one spot, so needless to say it’s been a good few months of reading for me. I loved this, and it was an unusual love for me because I disliked all of the characters. I guess that’s a true testament to good writing. Go into this book knowing very little about it. Read it ASAP.

Never Never by Colleen Hoover 7/10 – This is part one in a trilogy (which, for once, I knew going into the book), and it was good enough for me to want to read the next two books. If you know anything about me, you’ll know that means a lot because I very rarely read more than one book in a series. This book was part mystery, part thriller, part romance (ugh), and it ended on a really great cliffhanger. I can’t wait to get stuck into book two.

Where They Found Her by Kimberly McCreight 6/10 – This was a decent thriller, but unfortunately I picked it up between reading Luckiest Girl Alive and The Kind Worth Killing, and it had too much to live up to. It was still enjoyable though, and worth picking up for an easy rainy weekend read.

The Kind Worth Killing by Peter Swanson 9/10 – As I mentioned earlier in the post, this is tied for first position for best book I’ve read in 2015 so far. I’m going to be annoying and say that this is another book that you need to go into knowing very little about. If you’re not afraid of something a little bit twisted, check this out. I’ve already reserved Peter Swanson’s first book at the library and I can’t wait to read it.

Survive The Night by Danielle Vega 3/10 – This book had so much potential, and I was really enjoying it until it got ridiculous about halfway through. Such a shame.

  1. I love that we seem to have opposing tastes when it comes to books – I’ve added a stack of your recc’s to my TBR list and can’t wait til my library gets a few in so I can try out something new!

      Do you have any recommendations for me, Emma? I love hearing what people who have slightly different taste to me are reading, it gives me a chance to broaden my reading horizons a bit!

  2. I marked Luckiest Girl alive as my next read. I am currently reading Bell of Jar – I am late for that, I know!
