Book List #11

The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins

I didn’t think that this was going to be my sort of book and only read it because everyone was talking about it. Turns out I was wrong – I loved it! It’s a proper page turner and is really easy to get into.



The End Of Everything by Megan Abbott

I read lots of good reviews about this book but I didn’t enjoy it that much. I thought it was a bit slow and didn’t really want to pick it up to read, I only really read it so that I could get onto my next book!



Someone To Watch Over Me by Izzy Hammond

I borrowed this off one of the girls I met in Thailand when I ran out of books. It’s a true story about a girl who was abused by her parents which isn’t the sort of book I’d usually choose. It’s really depressing and there are some horrible scenes.



Sing You Home by Jodi Picoult

Another great read from Jodi Picoult. Not quite as good as others I’ve read by her but still worth reading.




Touching Earth by Rani Manicka

This book surprised me. I thought it was going to be another easy to read beach book but it was much better. There were lots of layers to the story and was darker than you would think from the cover!



Me Before You by Jojo Moyles

I liked the main characters in this book and wanted everything to work out for them. It made me want to keep reading – I really liked this book.


Book List #3

Wild Swans by Jung Chang
Fantastic book – read my review here.

Little Miracles by Giselle Green
This book is a good read but have some tissues handy as there are quite a few sad bits!

Mum’s The Word by Kate Lawson
I didn’t find this book very exciting to be honest but it’s not so bad that it’s unreadable.

Harvesting the Heart by Jodi Picoult
I enjoyed this and it was quite different to some of her other books.

The Iron Witch by Karen Mahoney
I didn’t really like this book but I think that’s because I don’t usually like books about the supernatural. If you do then you’ll probably love this!

The Code of Destiny by Sara Enochs
This was another book which I didn’t enjoy because of the supernatural element. To be honest I can’t even remember what happened in the end!

The Monk and the Hangman’s Daughter by Ambrose Bierce
This book is under 100 pages long but it was much better than I thought it was going to be.


The Midewife’s Confession

The Midwife’s Confession by Diane Chamberlain is one of the best books I’ve read over the summer.  On the front cover, it says that it’s “as good as Jodi Picoult or your money back”.  That was pretty much my reason for buying the book as I’ve enjoyed nearly all of the Jodi Picoult books I’ve read!

The first few chapters didn’t really grip me as much as some of the Jodi Picoult books have, but once I got into it I just couldn’t put it down.  The storyline follows two women as they try to come to terms with the suicide of their friend (who was a midwife, hence the title).  They find out that they didn’t know her as well as they thought and there are quite a few unexpected twists.

I’m never sure how much to say in book reviews as I don’t want to spoil the story for anyone who hasn’t read it yet!  If you’re looking for a good book, I’d definitely recommend giving this one a go.
