November Reading Record

Hello loves so I had a good reading month in November I managed to read 3 books πŸ™‚ here are my honest reviews on them without spoiling them hopefully!

The teacher by Katerina Diamond

Wow. Ok this book was sick like graphic gory gruesome honestly she went to town with the descriptive text but to the point where you had to fill in some blanks with your imagination which was even worse but brilliant! The story is centred round several characters whose back stories you get to learn through the course of the book and their stories all interconnect when a murderer turns up and starts killing men in quite frankly horrific ways! I can’t say as I know who the main protagonist is in the novel as a few characters get a fair amount of story however looking at her next novel it features 2 characters from this novel on another case so I’m assuming they are the intended protagonists! Overall thoroughly enjoyed this great first novel by this author and always added her next novel to my Christmas list!

Mr stink by David Walliams

My friend gifted me this book and I read it in one sitting. Such a lovely quick read (200 odd pages) it’s illustrated by Quinton Blake whome I love and I have to say Walliams can write really well!! I loved gangsta granny but haven’t read any of his other stories however after reading this one I may have to invest in some more of his books!! This book teaches us all not to judge a book by it’s cover, that love and kindness will prevail, that money doesn’t equal privilege and you never know what another person is going through, learn grow love and be kind a great pick me up story πŸ™‚

Miss peregrines peculiar children by Ransom Riggs

Arghhhhh this book was SO good!!! I tore through the last few chapters it was fast paced and I needed to know what happened!! It leaves you on a bit of a cliffhanger for books 2&3 and i have to wait and see if santa will bring me those this year!!! This book had a similar effect on me as the harry potter series in that I now want to find an imbryne and be told that I’m peculiar and have a gift although maybe not Jacobs gift!!! Really enjoyed this book 100% reccomend xx

November Reading Record πŸ“šπŸ“š

At school we used to have reading records where teachers would assign you books and mark off when you’d read them unsurprisingly mine used to fill more than one page!! I’ve always loved reading my mum encouraged me to read and would take me and my brother to the library to choose new books atleast once month! I can never express how much i love reading it’s something I will never tire of!!!

So here are the books I hope to read this month I’ve already started The teacher and will review them at the end of this month πŸ™‚

October Reading List review πŸ“š

Hello, so in October I lacked again on the reading front!! And only read two books! Here’s my reviews without spoilers πŸ™‚

Behind closed doors by B.A.Paris 

Wow. This book stayed with me a few days later! It was so moving and well written it had me hooked and on the edge of my seat! The characters are well written and emotive you really get drawn into the story and I will admit I shed a few tears! Really makes you think makes you look at people and situations differently would highly recommend.

The girl of ink and stars by Kiran Millwood Hargreaves

The debut novel from 26 year old author Hargreaves was a beautiful quick read πŸ™‚ overall I enjoyed the storyline very fantastical and mythical with subtle nods to the world as it was years ago. The characters were well thought out however the action starts pretty much straight away which I shouldn’t complain about in a story as I hate if it waffles on to much but I felt other than the protagonist Isabella (Isa) you don’t get to know the others that much which doesn’t lend itself to emotions you should feel when certain things happen in the story. That aside I loved the story and although it’s classed as a YA novel I think anyone of any age should read this it’s amazing and I cannot wait wait to see what Hargreaves releases in the future. X

So that’s it’s October’s reading list πŸ™‚
