My Favourite Reviews of the Week | 11th May

Faves 11TH MAY

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

I actually managed to keep up with everyone’s reviews this week, hallelujah! There’s so many brilliant reviews each week, it’s hard to pick which ones I feature – although as you can see, I pick a lot of them.

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.


4th April

A Haven for Book Lovers reviewed We Were Liars by E. Lockhart – this is a very snappy, honest review!

5th April

Books and Brew reviewed The Good Twin by Marti Green – this review makes this book sound like a good recommendation for a non-seasoned thriller reader!

Arkham Reviews reviewed The Beneath by S.C. Ransom – this is a really well worded and argued review for a disappointing book.

6th April

Keeper of Pages reviewed The Broken Girls by Simone St. James – Janel is the worst for making me add books to my TBR… Paranormal, gothic and suspense in this book? Sounds great!

Kristen Kraves Books reviewed several non-fiction books – I enjoyed reading all three reviews on this post, but especially for Educated. Sounds like a fabulous read and comes highly recommended!

7th April

Keeper of Pages reviewed Deadly Secrets by Robert Bryndza – it’s great when you find a series you love! Even though I got tired of the series myself, it’s nice to see that it’s still throwing excellent plot twists out.

Reading Under the Blankie reviewed The Family at Number 13 by S.D. Monaghan – this is a very witty less than glowing review!

Northern Crime reviewed The Things You Didn’t See by Ruth Dugdall – a very honest review for a new book by a well loved author.

Mrs B Book Reviews reviewed Don’t Believe It by Charlie Donlea – this a hugely glowing review for a book I’ve not heard of before! Added to my TBR straight away!

8th April

For Winter Nights reviewed A Baby’s Bones by Rebecca Alexander – we were both on the tour for this book so it’s great to see how others felt about it! Kate and I had very matching feelings on the book!

Books, Vertigo, and Tea reviewed Bannerless by Carrie Vaughn – I always love finding new dystopian recommendations! This reviews shows this book to be a worthwhile read.

The Blonde Likes Books reviewed The Replacement Wife by Britney King – this is another new book introduction for me this week. This review is very excitable and makes me want to pick up the book as soon as possible!

Julie Davide reviewed Our Little Secret by Roz Nay – I’ve seen a number of reviews for this book but Julie’s has really caught my attention. I immediately added this to my TBR!

I’ve Read This reviewed Word by Word by Kory Stamper – this sounds like a really weird and wonderful non-fiction novel. The book’s a perfect gift idea!

BookWyrm Reads reviewed The Ocean at the End of the Lane by Neil Gaiman – a short and snappy review that reminded me I really need to read more Gaiman!

Jessicamap Reviews & Where the Reader Grows reviewed What Should be Wild by Julia Fine – never heard of this book, both reviews really are really positive and I love the cover art! Added to my TBR straight away!

9th April

The Bookish Kira reviewed LIFEL1K3 by Jay Kristoff – this sounds like an amazing sounding YA novel, I just wish it was an adult novel so I would enjoy it! A really great review!

The Girl with All the Books reviewed Bring Me Back by B. A. Paris – I haven’t actually seen a negative review for this novel yet (other than my own) so it felt good when I saw Paige had the same feelings about me on it!

Flavia the Bibliophile reviewed The Pisces by Melissa Broder – the beautiful book cover caught my eye for this one. Flavia’s review is very level headed and interesting to read.

Here’s the Fucking Twist reviewed The Last Mrs Parrish by Liv Constantine – read this if you’re looking for a laugh! This is an absolutely hilarious review for a really shitty sounding novel.

I Wuv Books reviewed The Good Son by You-Jeong Jeong –  I’ve been interested in this book but not seen many reviews for it yet – Ali’s review definitely makes me want to pick it up!

10th April

Charlotte Annelise reviewed The Nowhere Child by Christian White – this is a great review that highlights both the positive and negative of the book really well.

Jo’s Book Blog reviewed Tubing by K. A. McKeagney – this doesn’t sound like my kind of book but it’s a convincing review as to why you should give it a try even if it’s out of your normal comfort zone!

Owl Be Sat Reading reviewed Elmet by Fiona Mozley – this is really beautiful metaphorical review!

Nut Free Nerd reviewed Norse Mythology by Neil Gaiman – Holly always produces really eloquent reviews. I’ve never considered this book before but I am now!

11th April

Chocolate ‘n’ Waffles reviewed The Lies We Told by Camilla Way – this another fantastically enthusiastic review for the new Camilla Way novel, I’m very excited about reading this new thriller!

Cleopatra Loves Books reviewed The Cliff House by Amanda Jennings – I haven’t seen reviews for this book yet, but I’m glad to see it was enjoyable as I have it to read soon!


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!

  1. Thanks for the link!

    Also, I enjoyed Neil Gaiman’s Norse Mythology when I read it, too. I listened to the audio book (my favorite way to enjoy Gaiman stories, since he also narrates) and it was a great listen.
