My Favourite Reviews of the Week | 6th April

Faves 6 Apr

Hello bookish friends! Recently, I’ve made it my goal to be more pro-active in liking, commenting and sharing blog posts I enjoy as I felt like I was slacking, so I thought why not show the love of my favorite reviews with a blog post!

Originally, I had planned to make this a monthly post, but my GOD there are so many great reviews that by 4 days into April, I already had 12 reviews on the list! So, I thought I’d take a step in Novels and Nonfiction’s direction and make it a weekly post instead! (Thanks for the inspo!)

I’m trying to be as objective as possible and include all kinds of reviews, but being a big lover of crime, mystery, nonfiction & horror books, most of these reviews do revolve around those genres!


1st April

A Little Blog of Books reviewed Mayhem by Sigrid Rausing – I’ve never heard of the novel (or the true story) so this review has made me very interested in reading it.

Zoey Muses About Books reviewed White Bodies by Jane Robins – I liked this book myself so it’s nice to see what other people thought of it, especially if they liked it. It’s always interesting to see where the similarity lies.

2nd April

The Belgian Reviewer reviewed If You Go Down to the Woods by Seth C. Adams – Inge has a way with words! Her Goonies x Pulp Fiction comment made the whole review!

Novel Deelights reviewed Lullaby by Leila Slimani – I’ve seen this novel everywhere, and I’m still trying to decide if I want to read it… so I like seeing others opinions on it!

3rd April

Linda’s Book Bag reviewed Our House by Louise Candlish – I saw this novel on Netgalley and I’m definitely interested in the book. This is the first review I’ve seen of it and it’s made me very intrigued.

Bibliophile Book Club wrote several mini reviews – This is kind of a cheat because it’s more than 1 review, but it’s interesting to see a mini-review for the novel I’m currently reading (Bring Me Back by B. A. Paris), and it also introduced me to a new book for my TBR!

For Winter Nights reviewed I Still Dream by James Smythe – This isn’t a book I would ever pick up to read myself, but Kate’s review is so compelling and well written, it’s impossible not be at least a little bit interested in the book!

Royal Reader reviewed Night Film by Marisha Pessl – This is the first less than glowing review on the list! I love a negative review just as much as a positive one if it’s argued as fluently as this!

Arkham Reviews reviewed S.T.A.G.S by M.A. Bennett – It’s a YA review! This review is superbly well written and the points made are well argued.

4th April

Keeper of Pages reviewed The Fear by C. L. Taylor – I always love Janel’s reviews! They’re so punchy and focused. This review reminded me to get with the times and pick up a C. L. Taylor book soon!

Novels and Nonfiction reviewed The Wangs Vs. The World by Jade Chang – I love the way her reviews are set out and they’re so eloquently put! Probably not a book I would read personally, but the review did make me consider adding the book to my TBR!

Clues and Reviews read The Runaways by Sonya Terjanian – A great review that highlights both the positives and negatives of the book.

5th April

The Suspense is Thrilling Me reviewed A Noise Downstairs by Linwood Barclay – Chelsea’s reviews are always so well written and always make me want to read the book she’s raving about! I’ve not read a Linwood Barclay book before, but I think I’m going to have to now!

What Cathy Read Next reviewed The Pharmacists Wife by Vanessa Tait – I initially didn’t like the sound of this novel when I first came across it, but Cathy’s review has changed my opinion on it!

Keeper of Pages review The Hunger by Alma Katsu – I’ve been wanting to read this novel since I first laid eyes on it, and Janel has made me even more eager now!

The Travelling Inkwell reviewed Let Me Lie by Claire Mackintosh – A great review that focuses on love for the characters in the story.

Clues and Reviews reviewed The Manson Women and Me by Nikki Meredith – Huge thanks to Sam for introducing me to a new Manson related book! Great non-fiction review.

6th April

Jen Med’s Book Reviews reviewed The Woman in the Woods by John Connolly – This review finally put my “should I read John Connolly?” question to bed… the answer is yes!

Damppebbles reviewed The Seven Deaths of Evelyn Hardcastle by Stuart Turton – I’m definitely going to have to sneak this book up a few places on my TBR pile. This review reminded me just how excited I am for this book!

What’s Nonfiction reviewed Out of Thin Air by Anthony Adeane – A fantastic and insightful review of an on-trend (miscarriage of justice) non-fiction book!

The Tattooed Book Geek reviewed Meddling Kids by Edgar Cantero – A great review that reminded me I really wanted to read this book! Thanks Drew!


So there we have it! Those are my favourite review posts from this week. Thanks to all the bloggers featured for the fantastic content this week!

And onto the next week… I’m looking forward to reading some new reviews!

Just a note, I’m not really sure what the time scale for this post is going to be… I think it’s going to be a Friday to Friday thing as I’m not on the blog as much over the weekends as I’m usually out and about doing things! However, this post is Sunday to Friday as it’s the first one and I was finding my feet with it.

  2. I love these type of posts because I often find titles I missed and book bloggers I don’t know yet. You should definitely read a Linwood Barclay novel, I like how he writes about regular people – could be you or me – that get into ‘a situation’ that escalates quickly. Ah and thank you for the mention lovely!!
