Read & Reviewed #21

I love when you have a big stash of books you're really looking forward to reading, currently that's my situation at the moment, I've been really lucky finding books with good deals on Amazon I really want to read or at charity shops. Here's a little round up of what I thought of the last 3 books I read! 

Set around a group of affluent, privileged teenagers in the US this book follows their summers together spent on their private family island. This book is a hard one to explain, it's written in poems almost, I'd heard so much about this book but I was left feeling disappointed. I found that there wasn't really a plot, it felt very jumpy and didn't have any character development or any real flow. Personally for me I couldn't relate to the characters (like most normal people), it just felt like a bunch of rich white people problems. I did like the twist at the end but overall I was left underwhelmed. 

I absolutely loved All The Bright Places by Jennifer Niven so I knew I'd love this book and I really did. Based around Libby, the former "world's fattest teen" and Jack who has a secret, he can't recognise faces. They develop an unlikely friendship founded on a cruel prank and the book follows them develop their connection. I really enjoyed this book, the plot was interesting and captivating, I really cared about the characters and enjoyed following their story. 

After reading In a Dark Dark Wood, Ruth Ware's first book I was so excited for this one to come out, she really is the master of thrillers! After a press trip on a luxury cruise ship takes a sinister turn, Lo is the only one who can uncover the truth. This is a proper murder mystery, so many twists and turns and you really don't know who to believe, it had me hanging on every word, a total page turner! 



  1. The Woman in Cabin 10 sounds so good - I love a book that's a bit scary! x

  2. Oh amazing, I have been on the hunt for some new book ideas lately so this is perfect! Amazing blog too by the way, well done gorgeous gal! x

  3. Lovely post Katie, and great to see your current reads. Lately I’ve been window shopping Amazon book deals, they really do have some good picks for the 3for£10. I love charity shops for books too, I recently picked up Holding up the Universe second-hand, so glad to see you thoroughly enjoyed it. Happy reading over Easter! :-) xx
