Punching the Air by Ibi Zoboi and Yusef Salaam
This is a very moving novel told in verse about a young black man who is imprisoned for assault. It’s a short book but I keep having to put it down to take a breath.
The Immortalists by Chloe Benjamin
This book is so different to what I thought it was going to be but I’m really enjoying it. I’ve read the first section so far and it made me cry, it really did get to me. I can’t wait to read more.
Like a House on Fire by Caroline Hulse
This is such a fun and believable novel about the breakdown of a marriage, and what you are led to when you don’t tell your parents you’ve separated and now have to attend a big family party/murder mystery evening!
Quite by Claudia Winkleman
I listened to this one on audiobook and very much enjoyed it. It’s Claudia Winkleman’s musings on life – from the serious to the frivolous and I adored it.
The Festival by Sarah J. Naughton
This book had me gripped all the way through. It follows four almost 40 year old women who decide to go to a festival thy previously attended as teenagers to celebrate a birthday. This novel kept on surprising me and I loved that.
The Searcher by Tana French
I enjoyed this one but it wasn’t my favourite book by this author. I’ve already reviewed this book so you can find my thoughts here if you’d like to know more.
Just Like the Other Girls by Claire Douglas
I found this novel really gripping and read it all in two sittings. My review is here if you want to know more.
The Silent Friend by Diane Jeffrey
This was a really gripping and compelling novel. I found it hard to read in places due to the subject matter but it kept me intrigued and I had to keep reading. I’ll be reviewing this one soon.
What I Might Read Next
The Split by Sharon Bolton
Hungry by Grace Dent
Every Vow You Break by Peter Swanson
I don’t know what I’ll be in the mood to read this week but I’m really trying to read some of my NetGalley books and the above are the three that are the ones that are jumping out to me the most at the moment.
