May’s Wrap Up

May Wrap Up Header

Books read

Wow! During May I have read 13 books. Ok, one was a children’s book but I’m still pretty chuffed with 12 books as I cannot remember the last time I got through so many!

Alongside all the reviews (phew May has been busy!) I also shared cover reveals for Rachel Amphlett’s One To Watch and Karen Long’s The Cold Room as well as being on the blog tours for The Blood Detective by Dan Waddell, Find Me at Willoughby Close by Kate Hewitt and The Man in the Needlecord Jacket by Linda MacDonald.

Favourite books

It has been so hard to choose a favourite book this month as I had read many fabulous and diverse books during May. As such, I’ve chosen 2!

Johana Gustawsson’s Block 46 is a stunning example of a complex investigation that isn’t afraid to tackle a difficult subject. I thoroughly enjoyed this book, although it doesn’t make for easy reading, and highly recommend it. Similarly, but very differently in subject matter(!), Conrad Jones deals with the violence of gangland warfare and revenge. Brick is a fantastic novel which is full to the brim of twists and turns, at points I was holding my breath, terrified as to what was to come.

Currently Reading


Lincoln is a good boy. At the age of four, he is curious, clever and well behaved. He does as his mum says and knows what the rules are.

‘The rules are different today. The rules are that we hide and do not let the man with the gun find us.’

When an ordinary day at the zoo turns into a nightmare, Joan finds herself trapped with her beloved son. She must summon all her strength, find unexpected courage and protect Lincoln at all costs – even if it means crossing the line between right and wrong; between humanity and animal instinct.

It’s a line none of us would ever normally dream of crossing.

But sometimes the rules are different.
