So another month has passed us by and we are officially into Summer now! It has been a hectic month of July and so my reading has slowed down a little compared to other months. However I have still enjoyed reading some great books so far and I have even surpassed my goodreads reading challenge having now read 46 out of 40 books! You can follow the links to my reviews to find out more about each book. I hope some of these Intrigue you enough to read my reviews!
No good deed goes unpunished by Bryan Quinn
This book was absolutely fabulous, it was a gritty, noir novel reaching into the dark, seedy underbelly of New York. Where bad deeds happened and bad people rule the land. It was addictive and powerful and I found myself rooting for all the wrong characters! You can read my review here.
Alice, Shaken and Definitely Stirred.
This was a fun whimsical romantic comedy with a hapless heroine and a potential three love interests. But who will she choose? There were comedy capers, dream sequences, heated exchanges and emotional discoveries. You can read my review here.
Grown Ups by Marie Aubert
Grown ups was an interesting tale of family bonds and sadness with a life not lived to its fill potential. A tale translated from Norwegian it was emotional and relatable. You can read my review here.
Seven days in June by Tia Williams
Oh my was this book Hot!! It was a fantastic read that just kept me enthralled to the end. A huge love story spanning decades as two teenage lovers cross paths again years later in adult hood. The depth of emotion was amazing and there were many other side plots and emotional twists to keep the story exciting. Read my full review here.
The Road Trip by Beth O'Leary
I absolutely adored this book!! Having been a huge fan of The Flatshare when I was given a copy of this book to hide for a book fairy campaign I couldn't resist reading it first! I highly recommend this one for a funny, emotional and heart wrenching book that keeps you gripped until the end. Read my full review here.
The Runaways by Victor Canning
I read this classic children's book as part of a blog tour ahead of its re-release. I had never read the book in my youth and I absolutely loved this story. It was such a delightful tale of a young boy on the run from a crime he didn't commit and a leopard on the run from the safari park. The lives of both characters intertwined and the parallels between them were just lovely. You can read my full review here.
Lying with Lions by Annabel Fielding
This was my final book of the month (although I technically finished it this morning I am stilll counting it in my July reads as I started it in July!) This was not my usual read, a historical family saga with lots of dark gothic twists and turns. I loved the historical elements throughout and it kept me very intrigued till the end.
