My Favourite Reviews of the Week | 9th June

Faves 9th June

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

I don’t like double posting on my blog, so if I have a Friday Finds post, I’m going to be posting this on Saturday, but usually, I’ll post this on Friday as normal… in case any of you cared!

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

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


1st June

Black Lit Queen reviewed Gone Girl by Gillian Flynn – this is a really well set up review, it makes it very easy to read! A very descriptive and balanced review.

Tack Fiction reviewed The Ocean at the End of Lane by Neil Gaiman – this is a stunning review for an absolutely magical sounding novella

The Paperback Piano reviewed Ill Will by Michael Stewart – I haven’t seen many reviews for this novel, but I know everyone is loving retellings at the moment (of which this one sort of is). Alex gives a great honest review of her thoughts

Julie Davide reviewed If I Die by Alison Gaylin – this is a really interesting review for this thriller which blends genres!

The Book Raven reviewed S. T. A. G. S. by M. A. Bennett – this is the YA thriller of the season at the moment! Tiana’s review is really nicely set-up and very informative!

GNTxReads reviewed The Witchfinder’s Sister by Beth Underdown – yay, Gaby enjoyed this book! I’d hyped it up for her enough, over on Instagram, so it’s nice to see a positive review for it!

2nd June

Books and Brews reviewed Our Little Secret by Roz Nay – I’ve added this one to my TBR, but since reading this review, I don’t think it would be a good match for me. I love super helpful reviews like this!!

A Haven For Book Lovers reviewed Bring Me Back by B. A. Paris – a very interesting review for Paris’ new novel

I love that you have this weekly feature highlighting some of the reviews you found the most helpful/interesting, and thank you so much for including my review of Confessions! 🙂 It was a really nice notification to wake up to on a Saturday morning when I have to drag myself out of bed and off to work!
