My Favourite Reviews of the Week | 13th April

Faves 13 Apr

Hello again bookish friends! Thanks for the outpouring of love on the first one of these posts, it was lovely to see this idea was a success!

Here we are again for this week with loads of fantastic reviews I’ve loved, all posted by you, the lovely bookish community! I am in Winchester today so I haven’t been able to pick up any reviews from today, as I scheduled this Thursday daytime. But don’t fear! I will go back over all the reviews I missed next week.

Anyway, on with the post!

Inspiration for this blog meme comes from Novels and Nonfiction’s “Links I Loved This Week” posts.


6th April

A Word is Power reviewed The English Wife by Lauren Willig a new blog introduces me to a new book! I love historical mysteries (or as I like to called them – “mystorical fiction”) so it’s always nice finding new ones to add to my TBR!

7th April

Wrecked My Eyes Reading reviewed Refuge by Dina Nayeri – great review of a poignant and important sounding novel.

Books Beyond the Theory reviewed The Chalk Man by C. J. Tudor – fantastic review for a book I didn’t particularly enjoy myself. I love seeing how a book that didn’t work for me, works for others.

8th April

The Bookworm Fantasy reviewed Friend Request by Laura Marshall – another review of a book I’ve read myself! It feels great to read a review that has the same positive and negative feelings towards a novel.

Waltzing the Book reviewed Whistle in the Dark by Emma Healey – an eloquent and honest review about a new book from an author I previously enjoyed.

For Winters Nights reviewed The Hunger by Alma Katsu – a fantastic review about a book I really want to read! Love the focus on the characters over the horror in this review.

BooksBejeweled reviewed The Flight Attendant by Chris Bojhalian – an enthusiastic review for an exciting sounding book!

Stephanie’s Novel Fiction reviewed After Anna by Lisa Scottoline – this review really got me interested in the book, its makes it sound very appealing!

9th April

Jo’s Book Blog reviewed The Boy on the Bridge by M. R. Carey – a well written and informative review about a book I’m really excited to read this year!

Linda’s Book Bag reviewed Do No Harm by Henry Marsh – I probably wouldn’t read this one myself, but the review is very compelling!

The Misstery reviewed The Echo Killing by Christi Daughtery – a fantastic review for the start of a new crime series! Annie makes you want to pick the book up straightaway… screw a TBR pile!

Leaf’d reviewed a couple of thrillers – I love the way these reviews are set up! They’re both super positive reviews for very popular thriller novels.

10th April

Always Trust in Books reviewed Drift Stumble Fall by M. Johnathan Lee – this is a really insightful review of a deep sounding novel! Definitely makes you want to add the book to your TBR.

Clues and Reviews reviewed The Art of Fear by Pamela Crane – Sam’s reviews are always so compelling. I’m glad she liked this one because I have the novel on my Kindle!

For Winter Nights reviewed One Way by S. J. Morden – I hadn’t heard of this book before now, but this review (along with the synopsis) made me add it to my TBR straight away!

The Paperback Piano reviewed The Fear by C. L. Taylor – this is probably the first review I’ve seen for this novel that hasn’t absolutely raved about it. I like hearing about both sides of a book!

The Travelling Inkwell reviewed Sometimes I Lie by Alice Feeney –  I loved this book myself so it’s fun reading other people’s thoughts when they loved it too!

Reads and Reels reviewed The Winter People by Jennifer McMahon – another book I’ve only seen good reviews for until now! An interesting take on the novel.

11th April

Keeper of Pages reviewed Seas of Snow by Kerensa Jennings – a beautifully written review that really makes you feel like you understand the story and emotions of the book.

I Wuv Books reviewed Skin Deep by Liz Nugent –  you might be seeing a trend here but this is semi-praising review for a novel that’s getting a lot of positive attention at the moment. This is well written and Ali has a good focus on what she did and didn’t like.

12th April

Candid Cover reviewed Then She Was Gone by Lisa Jewell – I’m very close to adding this book to my TBR, this review really argues a good case as to why we should all read it!

Novels and Nonfiction reviewed A False Report by T. Christian Miller & Ken Armstrong – I haven’t really wanted to pick this novel up because of it’s bleak subject matter, however, this review is seriously making me consider adding it to my TBR!  

The Horror Bookshelf reviewed Unbury Carol by Josh Malerman – another new blogger found with great reviews! This is a super detailed review for a unique and interesting sounding novel!


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!
