My Favourite Reviews of the Week | 4th May

Faves 4TH MAY

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

I can’t believe it’s May already agh!! I’ve found a load of fantastic reviews again this week (as I always do!) and I’ve decided to add in a little section for April Wrap-Up (and similar) posts, because they’re always some of my favourite posts to read.

I also have a confession, I haven’t been on top of all the reviews this week because work has been manic! We’ve had 1 new website go live, another website be brought forward by 4 weeks so everyone is scrambling to get things ready for going live, a whole re-jig of how we do all our online advertising etc etc etc. Very busy. I can’t see next week being much better, but I will try to keep on top of things a little better next week!

Anyway, 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.

27th April

Pace, Amore, Libri reviewed Eleanor Oliphant is Completely Fine by Gail Honeyman – this is an in depth and insightful review. She argues her points well and it’s interesting to see a not so positive review for this well loved book!

Book Open reviewed I Am, I Am, I Am by Maggie O’Farrell – this is such a beautifully written review! Laura gets her points across so fluently.

28th April

By the Letter reviewed Deja Vu by Emma Clapperton – I always love a good short story recommendation!

The Quiet Knitter reviewed The Old You by Louise Voss – the cover of this book caught my attention and the review made me add it to my TBR!

29th April

A Little Blog of Books reviewed The Butchering Art by Lindsey Fitzharris – this is a really interesting and fluid review. I remember learning about Lister in my History GCSE so it’s intriguing seeing a book written primarily about him.

This is Lit reviewed The Pleasures of the Damned by Charles Bukowski – I’m not a poetry fan but this review made me laugh!

The Beauty of Reading reviewed The Patriots by Sana Kraskiov – I don’t think I’ve ever read a book based in the old USSR so this review definitely caught my interest!

Baking Thad Books reviewed Little Fires Everywhere by Celeste Ng – this is a very honest review for an overly popular book. It’s interesting hearing the opposite opinion for the novel when I’ve only ever seen good things.

30th April

The Quiet Knitter reviewed That Old Black Magic by Cathi Unsworth – I always love reviews that introduce me to a book I would have otherwise overlooked! This being a prime example.

Jo’s Book Blog wrote several mini reviews – I love a mini-review post!! Such a quick way to damage your TBR!

Novel Gossip reviewed Every Single Secret by Emily Carpenter – I have this bookon my Kindle, and hadn’t seen any reviews before this. And, it’s a 5 star rating! That makes me very excited to read it!

My Chestnut Reading Tree reviewed The Lies We Told by Camilla Way – I loved Way’s first book! This is an excited review that says this is even better than Watching Edie, so that’s made me add this to my TBR straight away.

Blood Red Velvet reviewed The Nightmare by Thomas Ligotti – this sounds amazing! I love horror compilations. I’ve wanted to read stuff by this author for a while now and this review has sold it to me that yes, I definitely should!

The Book Collective reviewed Our Kind of Cruelty by Araminta Hall – each and every review of this book is making me so excited to get my hands on it! I love how Melisa makes the comparison to Paul from Best Day Ever to the narrator in this. That gets me super excited!

1st May

Keeper of Pages reviewed Death of an Actress by Antony M. Brown – this is a unique sounding non-fiction novel. Another great review from Janel!

Shih Tzu’s and Book Reviews reviewed I’ll Be Gone in the Dark by Michelle McNamara – this is a beautiful review for one of the biggest books of the year so far!

Pace, Amore, Libri reviewed Social Creature by Tara Isabella Burton – an “intoxicating” review! It’s an interesting sounding book – a lighter version of The Secret History.

I’ve Read This reviewed Find You in the Dark by Nathan Ripley – I’ve seen a few reviews for this now and I’ve finally added it to my TBR thanks to this compelling review!

2nd May

Where the Reader Grows reviewed The Cyclist by Anthony Neil Smith – I love reading reviews that agree with my own opinions on the book!

What’s Nonfiction reviewed Love and Death in the Sunshine State by Cutter Wood –  this is a really well balanced negative review!

Reading Under the Blankie reviewed The Good Twin by Marti Green – this is a really well rounded review for a book that was good but just not right for the reader!

3rd May

The Misstery reviewed Every Single Secret by Emily Carpenter – Oo another review of this book to add to the list! Now I’ve seen 2 very positive reviews. Can’t wait to read it!

4th April

What’s Nonfiction reviewed The Woman Who Fooled the World by Beau Donelly and Nick Toscano – I read a fiction novel recently that sounds very much like the nonfiction story in this! I would be interested in reading the real life version of events. This is a very compelling review and sells the book so well!


I’ve also included some wrap-ups I’ve loved reading this week!
