It’s Monday morning and time for some more of my mini reviews. I have a couple of lengthier reviews coming for you soon, but in the mean time have some mini reviews of three books I read recently.
Lethal White by Robert Galbraith
There’s just something about these books that I simply cannot resist. I say ‘something’ but actually we all know it’s that dynamic between Strike and Robin that I just love coming back to. The ‘will they, won’t they’ aspect definitely keeps me hooked and I love watching their dynamics change and grow. The mystery in this one was really interesting and I loved seeing the political aspects of it. Another great novel from Galbraith! I hope they’ll put this one on the silver screen too!
What If It’s Us by Adam Silvera and Becky Albertalli
This book reminded me exactly why I like reading contemporary YA: it can be light and fluffy whilst also being deep rooted and emotional. Whilst it wasn’t as heartbreaking as I was expecting (I say that as if it’s a bad thing…), the relationship between Arthur and Ben was adorable and I absolutely fell head over heels in love with them. Their friends and parents were great additions to the family and the whole novel felt so lovely.
Say Her Name by Juno Dawson
Okay, so I was SO convinced I would find this terrifying that I think I over hyped it for myself… WOOPS. That being said, this was still a spooky train read on Halloween. I particularly enjoyed the fact that this was based such a well known and beloved myth. Here we called it the ‘Grey Lady’ and I’m sure it is Bloody Mary and other names all over the UK, but the myth is the same: do not say her name five times in the mirror or she will come and kill you. That aspect definitely made this a chilling read!
Have you read any of the books I’ve rambled about above?
I’d love to hear what you thought!
