The Last Resort by Susi Holliday
I’ve read and enjoyed Susi Holliday’s previous novel so was keen to get to her new one. This is a really intriguing novel where seven people who have never met before are taken to an island where they think they are on a luxury break but actually a tech company has other ideas. I’m so keen to find out what is going on in this book and so I’ll be reading more of this asap!
Fifty Fifty by Steve Cavanagh
This is another intriguing novel! Two sisters each dialled 911 to report their father had been brutally attacked and that the person who’d done it was their sister who had killed him. I’m so keen to know what actually happened and how this novel is going to end!
Invisible Women by Caroline Criado Perez
This was a fascinating read all about the way the world is designed around men and male bodies. I found it anger-inducing but also very interesting reading about things like how cars are designed around males and how medication is based on trials on male bodies. I knew, or had an idea, of some of the things in this book but it was still eye-opening. I’m really glad I read this one.
Blood Moon by Lucy Cuthew
I bought this book and read it straight away, which I don’t do often enough these days. I really enjoyed this YA novel about a teenage girl who gets her period during her first sexual encounter and what happens after that. I loved the issues explored through this novel and how it looks at how girls can be made to feel shame about such a natural bodily process. I wish this book had existed when I was a teenager but I still very much enjoyed it as a 40-something!
The Island by C. L. Taylor
I was approved to listen to the audio book of this one via NetGalley and I enjoyed it. I love C. L. Taylor’s writing and this was a thrilling YA mystery set on an island where a group of teens have gone for a survivalist experience but what they get is more than they bargained for.
Your Blue is Not My Blue by Aspen Matis
This is such a different book that I would normally stick with but there was something so compelling about the writing and I just couldn’t put it down. I was intrigued by Matis’ life and to find out what would happen to her and her marriage. I really did enjoy this book and I would recommend it.
What I Might Read Next
After the Silence by Louise O’Neill
I’ve had this on my TBR for a little while now and I keep seeing good reviews for it so I’m really keen to pick it up. Hopefully I will get to it over the coming week.
Just Ignore Him by Alan Davies
My husband surprised me with this book for Christmas and I’ve really want to read it very soon so hopefully I can also get to this one this week.
Homecoming by Luan Goldie
I’ve got an ARC of this from NetGalley but I recently bought the audio book from Audible so I think I’m going to part listen and part read this one soon!

Fifty Fifty looks like a good book, and I’m also intrigued by Invisible Women.
Enjoy! Here’s MY WWW POST
Invisible Women was such an eye-opening read and I’m so glad I read it, I recommend it.
I remember learning about how medications are trialled on men and basically the foundations of all clinical medicine are around men and studying male bodies as well. Infuriating. But also how little has been done to try and correct for that. I’ve had Invisible Women on my list for so long and really need to get to it!
I found Invisible Women eye-opening and anger-inducing but it was such an interesting read. I recommend it and hope you get as much out of it as I did.
Loved fifty fifty and I do have CL Taylor’s book to read
I’ve read both of those books now and enjoyed them. I hope you enjoy CL Taylor’s new one when you get to it.
Fifty Fifty and The Last Resort look really good. I think I will be adding those to my TBR pile.
I enjoyed them both, they were fun and gripping reads. 🙂
These all look good, Hayley! I think the Cavanaugh and the Davies interest me the most, but they all look appealing. I’m so glad you’re finding some books that keep you reading and engaged these days. Getting your reading mojo back is such a great feeling.
Thank you, it is such a relief to be reading again. I still have days where I can’t get into any books but I’m definitely getting there.
The Last Resort looks good. I can’t wait to read ‘The Island’ soon.
Enjoy your books this week. Happy reading.
Thank you 🙂 x
Hope you enjoy Fifty-Fifty Hayley, I thought it was really good!
I did enjoy it, it was such a page-turner! x
Fifty Fifty looks like a wild read. I can’t wait to see what you think once you’ve finished. Happy reading!
It was a good read, it kept me gripped all the way through. I hope you enjoy it if you decide to read it. x
I’m glad you enjoyed The Island too and I hope Fifty Fifty will be a good one for you! I love the Eddie Flynn books. Happy reading!
I love the Eddie Flynn books too – I still need to go back and read the early books in the series so I’m looking forward to getting to those. Thank you 🙂
Book four and five are still my absolute favorites, but the first three are still great reads too. I hope you will enjoy them!
Thank you, I’m sure I will. x
I need to look up Your Blue is Not My Blue. I haven’t heard of that one before. I’m curious about it. I hope you love it and the rest of these.
I really enjoyed it – it’s the kind of book that if I’d picked it up at a different time the writing would have got on my nerves a bit but when I read I just got completely absorbed and didn’t want to put it down.
