My Favourite Reviews of… Recently | 9th October

Faves 9 Oct

Hello again bookish friends! I’m here again with my favourite reviews of the week… but not of the week because I started compiling this list over a week ago… so it’s just favourite reviews of recently!

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 October

Stephanie’s Novel Fiction reviewed Dracul by Dacre Stoker and J. D. Barker – I haven’t read Dracula yet but this book still really interests me and I definitely want to read it at some point. I love this enthusiastic review!

Read, Teach, Eat, Repeat reviewed The Other Woman by Sandie Jones – I love a negative review that doesn’t completely drag the book down (guilty as charged for that!!)

Here’s the Fucking Twist reviewed Meddling Kids by Edgar Cantero – another wonderfully funny review from Krystin, even if she has made me worried that I’ll not enjoy this book as much as I hoped I would!

2nd October

On My Book Shelf reviewed Dinner Party by Tracy Bloom – this really isn’t my kind of book but this review still had me reading until the end! It’s excellently written and easily piques your interest in the book

Reads and Reels reviewed Something Borrowed, Something Bloodsoaked by Christa Carmen – I love reviews for short story collections like this, where there is a mini-review for each story! This grabbed my interest straight away

Swift Coffee reviewed Excellent Intentions by Richard Hull – I love how this review is set up and it makes me want to read more classic crime!

3rd October

Jennifer Tar Healer reviewed The Fall Architect by Charles Belfoure – this sounds like a really interesting book I’ve not heard of before, love a new book discovery!

Jessica’s Reading Room reviewed The Flight Attendant by Chris Bohjalian – I forgot all about this book but Jessica has re-sparked my interest in it with this review!

4th October

Divine World of Books reviewed Half Moon Bay by Alice LaPlante – I’ve never heard of this book before, but I love how creepy it sounds! This is a fantastic, informative review

Fictionophile reviewed Follow You Home by Mark Edwards – “a perfect, creepy October read”, what more could you want!?

5th October

Me and My Mundane Life reviewed Our Little Lies by Sue Watson – I’m always looking out for new psychological thriller reviews like this one!

The Blonde Likes Books reviewed The Demonologist: The Extraordinary Career of Ed and Lorraine Warren – I’ve been wanting to read this novel for ages so it’s great seeing this review for it!

Read, Eat, Sleep, Repeat reviewed The Ice Twins by S. K. Tremayne – I have this book on my shelves and it’s been one of those books I’ve avoided for a while, this well informed negative review is making me think I should just put it in a charity shop!

CMA Reads reviewed The Lighthouse Keepers Daugther by Hazel Gaynor – if you’re on the lookout for an emotional historical read, look no further!

Jessicamap Reviews reviewed Dracul by Dacre Stoker and J. D. Barker – I really want to read Dracula before I dig into this prequel. This review makes it sound amazing!

6th October

Book Princess Reviews reviewed The Girl from the Well by Rin Chupeco – fun review for a YA horror novel!

The Lexington Bookie reviewed I’ll Be Gone in the Dark by Michelle McNamara – wonderful review for the crime book of the year! I’m looking forward to reading this one!

Two Sisters Lost in a Coulee reviewed The Psychology of Time Travel by Kate Mascarenhas – two fantastic mini-reviews for this highly anticipated book of mine!

7th October

What’s Nonfiction reviewed Amy: My Search for Her Killer by James Renner – a fascinating review for a fascinating sounding novel! I’ve been wanting to read Renner’s other book too which Ren links into this review too!


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. I’m so glad you liked the review, thanks so much for sharing! That book was truly fascinating, I had that story turning over in my mind for so long after reading it. His other book is great too and another one of those rabbit-hole cases that you end up falling into, be prepared! 🙂

      1. For me, I feel that because I’ve read Dracula but don’t remember a lot of the details it will probably be less frustrating if I re-read it first. But if you haven’t read Dracula yet, reading Dracul first might not be as bad.
