I freakily managed to read the exact same amount of books as last month – this wrap up contains 8 gems, all awesome in their own way!
But – as always, there can only be one winner for my Top Pick of the Month… drum roll … MJ Arlidge’s A Gift For Dying wins hands down!
Below is the round up of books I read this month:
Feminists Don’t Wear Pink (and other lies) curated by Scarlett Curtis
A perfect ‘dive in and out’ inspirational and powerful book surrounding gender equality and what feminism means to a number of different people. 4 out of 5. Read my full review here.
Everything I Know About Love by Dolly Alderton
Highlights also the importance of female friendships, and how women need to build each other up together – perfect fitting for International Women’s Day, driving change together. In 3 words: Relatable, Courageous and Honest. Was one of my picks for this year’s International Women’s Day reads – see full article here. 4 out of 5.
The Woman at 46 Heath Street by Lesley Sanderson
I loved what this book was really all about, for me, it’s about love, a man’s obsession to keep his wife all to himself, it’s about domestic abuse, both mental and physical, and it’s about secrets … dark secrets that take place behind closed doors. If you want an utterly gripping, haunting and riveting read, you will not be disappointed. 4 out of 5. Full review can be found here.
All We Ever Wanted by Emily Giffin
A beautifully written story, told from the perspectives of several of the main characters, in the aftermath of a really bad decision. It’s a rollercoaster of a read and totally consumed me. 5 out of 5. Click here for the full review.
Becoming by Michelle Obama
A beautifully composed memoir that sets out to inspire people, that anything is possible with dreams and hard work. Michelle was open, honest and real. 5 out of 5. Find my thoughts on this one here.
A Gift For Dying by M J Arlidge
If you are looking for something totally gruesome, heart stopping, unpredictable and somewhat heartbreaking – look no further, you have it all wrapped in a bow with M J Arlidge’s latest thriller. 5 out of 5 and no doubt about it – was my Pick of the Month! Get the details here.
Beautiful Bad by Annie Ward
Slow start but the ending totally made up for it – my heart was literally racing. The storyline got very dark, twisted and haunting (just how I like it!). 4 out of 5. Read my full review here.
Educated by Tara Westover
A powerful memoir of a young girl (to woman) who was born into a dysfunctional Mormon survivalist family – who don’t believe in modern medicine or formal education. Tara recounts her childhood and unconventional upbringing. Incredible, Inspirational and Courageous! 4 out of 5. Get the low down here.
And that’s a wrap on March! A huge thank you to NetGalley, publishers and authors for my review copies of most of these books – this in no way influenced my reviews.
