A few days later than the actual end of the month, I’m finally saying goodbye to April with this post and I have to say it’s been a pretty good month – life and reading wise. Life wise I got to take a lovely holiday to the seaside (sun included…you don’t get much better than that in April) and I also made some pretty big decisions which I’m now trying to figure out the logistics of (more on that to follow once it’s all clear in my head I’m sure).
Reading wise, this is what I loved, liked and didn’t really care for…
The Killer on the Wall by Emma Kavanagh, where a murderer seems to be back on the lose after twenty years since his last “kill”…the problem is he’s in prison. It’s a close call but this is definitely my book of the month.
Last Breath by Robert Bryndza, another cracking episode in the Erika Foster series with Erika back in the murder investigation team and on the trail of a serial killer.
Driven by James Sallis, visiting one of my favourite characters eight years after I first met him in Drive – add to that it’s one of my favourite authors, it felt like nothing could go wrong with this book.
Before The Fall by Noah Hawley which looks at the aftermath of a plane crash on the survivors and the all pervasive (can you say evil) nature of the press.
The Red Hunter by Lisa Unger, the first book by this author that I’ve read but it won’t be the last – this is a clever thriller with plenty of twists and turns that keep you guessing.
He Said/She Said by Erin Kelly, a thriller with a difference; it makes you think – not just about what is going on but your attitudes toward sex and sexual assault.
What Goes Around by Julie Corbin, another thriller (yes, I read a lot I know) where two women battle wits over a man I’m not sure is worth it at all.
Her Every Fear by Peter Swanson, which I had high hopes for (possibly too high) and just didn’t hit the mark for me, character-wise especially. Shame.
The Lauras by Sara Taylor, where a young girl goes on the run (aka a road trip) with her mom. Or it might be a young boy and his mom. It isn’t clear, which is true of a lot of things in this book (for me at any rate).
Fell by Jenn Ashworth, which left me perplexed in how to rate it (it’s so close to liked a lot but not quite there). The story left me wanting but the writing – beautiful!
None – yay!
And that’s it for me. How was your month – what’s worth adding to next months to read pile?
This month, I’m linking with Kathryn at Book Date and Nicole at Feed Your Fiction Addiction with their monthly round-up posts (clicking on the images will take you to the posts to check out what others have been reading).
