Monthly Round-Ups

Monthly Round Up – November 2018

It’s the 1st of December, which means it is time for me to have a quick look back at the books I read during November.  Despite an absolutely awful November for personal reasons I managed to read 10 books and here they are; 5 standalone books, 5 books in a series, 2 I absolutely LOVED, 2 I really didn’t enjoy or recommend and a mixture of crime, psychological thrillers, contemporary and 1 espionage thriller.

  1. Mad – Chloe Esposito – The first book in an outrageously sexy, dark thriller series – which I absolutely LOVED – read my full review here
  2. Down to the Woods – MJ Arlidge – Book 8 in the Helen Grace series – slightly different format but still a great read – read my full review here
  3. No Time to Cry – James Oswald – A brand new series featuring a totally fascinating main character – read my full review here
  4. Cath Staincliffe – The Girl in the Green Dress – A controversial subject told with immense sensitivity and beautifully emotive.  Read my full review here
  5. Need to Know – Karen Cleveland – Lee Child recommended this book – enough said! – Read my thoughts here
  6. The Flower Girls – Alice Clark Platts – This much anticipated thriller due out late January 2019 just didn’t do it for me – here are my thoughts on Goodreads
  7. Invisible City – Julia Dahl – The first book in a new series featuring a reporter looking into the Hasidic Jewish community in New York.  Read my first review here
  8. Bitter – Francesca Jakobi – A dark, emotionally powerful and uncomfortable story about obsession, family, parents, marriage and relationships.  I loved it – read my full review here
  9. The Cold Years – Joel Hames – Book 3 in the wonderful Sam Williams series – works as a standalone but you should definitely read the series – read my full review here
  10. Little Fires Everywhere – Celeste Ng – Yet another highly recommended, much talked about book, that didn’t work for me.  Read my full review on Goodreads.
