Faves 11 Aug

Hello again bookish friends! I’m here again with my favourite reviews of the week, actually posted on the correct day this time!

I’m taking part in the #25infive challenge this weekend, so don’t expect to see me in many notifications for the next few days, I’m trying to stay focused!

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.


4th August

Inside my Library Mind reviewed The Psychology of Time Travel by Kate Mascarenhas – I always love Marija’s review set-ups and now I can’t wait to read this book!

What’s Nonfiction reviewed Just Mercy by Bryan Stevenson – this is a wonderful review about a book that discusses the harm of capital punishment, a must read by the sounds of it!

Books Bejeweled reviewed In the Vines by Shannon Kirk – this review makes this book sound absolutely incredible! I must get my hands on this one!!

5th August

The Belgian Reviewer reviewed The Fifth the Die by J. D. Barker – this review makes me very excited to read book 2 in the 4MK series!

Jennifer Tar Heel Reader reviewed Three Things About Elsie by Joanna Cannon – I had never really paid much attention to this novel before this review! Jennifer’s analysis of the book really makes me want to read it!

6th August

Reading Under the Blankies reviewed All Rights Reserved by Gregory Scott Katsoulis – interesting review for a book I hadn’t heard of previously, a well-rounded review

Read This, Not That reviewed An Unwanted Guest by Shari Lapena – I didn’t like the one book I’ve read by this author so far, but the reviews for this book are really making me want to give it a shot!

What Cathy Read Next reviewed The Story Keeper by Anna Mazzola – this sounds like such an interesting book and Cathy’s review has definitely made me want to pick up this historical fiction!

The Book Collective reviewed After Nightfall by A. J. Banner – love this quick snappy review for this fast-paced mystery

Pace, Amore, Libri reviewed My Year of Rest and Relaxation by Ottessa Moshfegh – even though this doesn’t sound like my kind of book, Rachel’s review has definitely made me intrigued!

7th August

Abigail’s Books reviewed Salt by Hannah Moskowitz – I love a good negative review as much as I love a good positive one!

Snazzy Books reviewed Something In the Water by Catherine Steadman – reviews that highlight the good and the bad of a book are always my favourite, it gives you a more realistic expectation of what the book is going to be like

A Word is Power reviewed The Brutal Telling by Louise Penny – every time I see a raving review for a Louise Penny book, like this, it reminds me I need to pick up one of her books!

Read, Eat, Sleep, Repeat reviewed The Perfect Nanny by Leila Slimani – this is a beautifully detailed review for one of those very love it or hate it books

Lost in a Good Book reviewed Vox by Christina Dalcher – it’s always nice to see a review that doesn’t follow the rest of the crowd… I’m not sure that I’ve seen a negative-ish review for this book before Crystal’s!

Here’s the Fucking Twist reviewed The Last Time I Lied by Riley Sager – another fabulous and funny review from Krystin!

8th August

The Book Worms Fantasy reviewed Pretty Baby by Mary Kubica – this is a very convincing review as to why you should pick up this book!

Blook Red Velvet reviewed Fractured by Karin Slaughter – a beautiful review that reminds me I need to pick up a Karin Slaughter book soon

9th August

Two Sisters Lost in a Coulee reviewed Sister of Mine by Laurie Petrou – fab dual reviews for this popular current novel!

Lindsey’s Reads and Reviews reviewed Jane Doe by Victoria Helen Stone – this is a super quick and easy read review!

Candid Cover reviewed An Unwanted Guest by Shari Lapena – all the great reviews for this book are making me really want to read it! This is a beautiful example of a review that’s getting me excited about it

What’s Nonfiction reviewed A Deal with the Devil by Blake Ellis and Melanie Hicken – I’ve not seen many books about fake clairvoyant’s but it’s a topic of interest for me. This is another fabulous nonfiction review from What’s Nonfiction!

The Secret Library reviewed The Psychology on Time Travel by Kate Mascarenhas – I am so excited to read this novel, Nicki’s review makes it sound like such a fun read

Jo’s Book Blog reviewed several recent reads – like I always say, I love a set of mini reviews! Especially when they introduce me to a new book by an author I’ve previously enjoyed

10th August

Paperback Piano reviewed Do No Harm by L. V. Hay – this is a wonderful short and snappy review about a very exciting sounding thriller mystery!

Read, Eat, Sleep, Repeat reviewed Tell No One by Harlan Coben – as this is an older of Coben’s work I rarely see it reviewed, however it’s a book I really want to pick up myself so it’s great so see some positive things about it on my Reader!

Books on the Bookshelf reviewed Sometimes I Lie by Alice Feeney – I always enjoy seeing other people enjoy the book I’ve personally loved!


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!
