My Favourite Reviews of the Week | 20th April

Faves 20Apr

Hello again bookish friends! I’m here again with my favourite reviews of the week.

I got a bit behind on this post this week due to work being hella busy and spending my evenings holiday shopping, but we’re here. We made it! Phew.

I hope you guys enjoy the post and find a few reviews you missed on your feed this week!

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


13th April

Pace, Amore, Libri reviewed Days Without End by Sebastian Barry  – this is a really beautifully written 1 star review! Although it’s a negative review, it doesn’t bash previous lovers of the book at all.

Read Voraciously reviewed White Chrysanthemum by Mary Lynn Bracht – a fantastically written review for a really important, but bleak, sounding WWII novel!

14th April

Bridget and Books wrote several mini reviews –  I love seeing a bookish friend enjoy a book I loved too! In this case it was with novel The Wonder by Emma Donoghue.

Fuel the Blog reviewed I Found You by Lisa Jewell – I’ve been considering reading a Jewell book for a while now, so it’s always nice to see what other bloggers think of her stuff!

The Misstery reviewed All The Beautiful Lies by Peter Swanson – I’ve been seeing a lot of reviews for this book recently, Annie gives it a good level-headed review.

Des’ Random Thoughts reviewed Kill Creek by Scott Thomas – I actually gave this book a try myself, and gave up it, however this review is making me reconsider picking it up and trying again!

15th April

Book Jotter reviewed White Houses by Amy Bloom – this is not a book I would read personally, but the review is so well put together it kept me reading, and now I have a great book to recommend a friend!

Sharon’s Writers Tidbits reviewed The Turnaround by George Pelecanos – I’ve never heard of this novel before but it sounds interesting! This review makes a good case as to why I should read it.

Raven Crime Reads reviewed Resurrection Bay by Emma Viskic – the cover art for this book dragged me in and the review kept me entertained! Sounds like a great novel with a unique main character!

The Travelling Inkwell reviewed Screams You Hear by James Morris – an exciting review for a YA horror novel. I love how brilliantly presented Kaila’s reviews are.

What a Difference a Word Makes reviewed I Am, I Am, I Am by Maggie O’Farrell – I’ve been avoiding this novel for no particular reason, however, this review made me realise what a mistake that was! It sounds great!

The Bookish Deer reviewed The Kind Worth Killing by Peter Swanson – I loved this novel myself so it’s great to see others thoughts on it!

The Sunday Feeling reviewed A Stranger in the House by Shari Lapena – I didn’t enjoy this one personally but it’s always nice to see a bookish friend get on with a book even if I didn’t!

16th April

The Misstery reviewed Tangerine by Christine Mangan – an interesting review for a very popular book right now!

The Paperback Piano reviewed The War of the Worlds by H. G. Wells – this is a review for the BookBum Club which is always exciting to read! It’s always nice when someone enjoys their themed read for the month.

The Captain’s Quarters Blog reviewed The Seven Husbands of Evelyn Hugo by Taylor Jenkins Reid – an easy mistake found The Captain reading the wrong book, but it was an enjoyable read nonetheless! This is a fun review for a bookish mix-up.

17th April

Novel Gossip reviewed The Elizas by Sara Shepherd – I love a review that steers me clear of a book. I had this one on my TBR and Amazon wishlist, but it’s been removed now!

The Orangutan Librarian reviewed Hazel Wood by Melissa Albert – I’m so close to giving this one a try even though it’s YA. This review makes the novel sound like the best. book. everrrr.

The Tattooed Book Geek reviewed Ararat by Christopher Golden – this makes me want to pick up the book soon! It sounds soooo good.

18th April

Keeper of Pages reviewed A False Report: A True Story of Rape in America by T. Christian Miller & Ken Armstrong – this is such a well worded, level-headed review! It’s so difficult to review books about sensitive subjects, especially if it let you down, but Janel absolutely nails it here!

19th April

I’ve Read This reviewed The Only Girl in the World by Maude Julien – I always love introductions to new non-fictions novels. This is review does really well in discussing the negatives and positives of the book.

20th April

Whats’ Nonfiction reviewed Columbine by Dave Cullen – I love reviews that remind me to pick up a book. I’ve had Columbine since I was 14 and I haven’t managed to read it yet… this review has pushed the book to the top of my TBR!

A Haven for Book Lovers reviewed White Lies by Lucy Dawson – this is a really persuasive review as to why anyone looking for a new psychological thriller should pick this book up!

Keeper of Pages reviewed The Girl Who Smiled Beads by Clemantine Wamariya – another extremely compelling review from Janel!

Chain Interaction reviewed The Unit by Ninni Holmqvist – I always appreciate a review that turns me away from wasting my time on a book I probably won’t like. This is a very well present negative review!


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!
