Finishing books has been off to a slow start this year. I’m rediscovering how much I enjoy reading but I’m so indecisive I can’t seem to pick one easily ending with me starting mid-month. So far this year I’ve read & listened to 4 books not as many as I’d hoped for. I’m hoping these regular book reviews will encourage me to read more.
I’ve only finished three books in March. Considering a few months ago I wasn’t reading at all I’m quite pleased myself.
March book review
Eleanor Oliphant is completely fine, by Gail Honeyman
Girl code, by Cara Alwill Leyba
Seriously enjoyed this. I’m on a self-development drive at the moment, researching as many of this kind of books. This I can honestly say has been my favourite discovery so far! It’s written by women specifically for women so I guess I relate a lot.
Pros: Female empowerment at its best, its aimed at entrepreneurs, however, I think non-entrepreneurs will still enjoy it as it offers lots of good content on positive mindset & attitude.
Cons: The interviews ending each chapter did get a little repetitive
The secret she keeps, by Michael Robotham
WOAH, a term I found myself repeatedly saying throughout this book! This is my first physiological thriller and I’m hooked. Every single page had me on the edge of my seat. It’s narrated through the perspective of two women expecting babies around the same time from different ends of the social spectrum. Meg & Agatha were so equally relatable both with secrets the world doesn’t know. Although I thoroughly enjoyed it I wanted more “thriller suspense” from the story
Pros: Super short yet engaging chapters. Doesn’t end with a huge plot twist which was completely fine by me.
Cons: Fairly predictable, not thrilling enough
