Reading Round-up:

17. 'Heart-Shaped Bruise' by Tanya Byrne: [5/5] A stunning novel about revenge and the price we pay for it.

18. 'Salem's Lot' by Stephen King: [5/5] Old School Vampires taking over small town America. One of my favourite Vampire books ever.

19. 'Death Didn't Want Me... Now I Have Life' by Hannah Dee: [4/5] A heart-wrenching memoir of life lived with Borderline Personality Disorder.

20. 'Sing You Home' by Jodi Picoult: [5/5] A tear-jerker of a novel about life, love and family.

21. 'Blood, Sweat and Tea' by Tom Reynolds: [4/5] The memoirs of a London Paramedic. Funny, poignant and thought provoking.

22. 'Percy Jackson and the Sword of Hades' by Rick Riordan: [3/5] A fill-the-gap story. Fun but a little too short.

23. 'Love, Aubrey' by Suzanne LaFleur: [5/5] A children's novel tackling some big issues with a protagonist who gets inside your heart and stays there.

I had a good reading month this month. Seven books - a big improvement on March. I enjoyed everything I read this month (there are a few 5 star reads here) and it's hard to choose a favourite. It's definitely between 'Heart-Shaped Bruise', 'Sing You Home' and 'Love, Aubrey'. All three tugged on y heart-strings and had me close to tears which seems to be something I'm enjoying this month (a little strange maybe?)

Goodreads is suggesting that I increase my target of 40 books in a year to something higher as I seem to be well ahead of schedule. I'm contemplating it. But what number would be achievable?

  1. How about upping it 60 books? You are definitely storming through your 40 book challenge. Go for it! xx
