Books in March

Well, this ‘Books in’ post is a little different – I actually reviewed every book this month! I’ll do a little summary and the links will link to the review! It feels a little pointless to post a second review, so I’m going to show what I rated them and you can just click on the links to view my review.

image# The Double Life of Cassiel Roadnight – Jenny Valentine

“Chap is a 16 year old runaway, and when he is mistaken for a missing boy he takes on the identity, hoping to gain the family and friends that he’d never had. He discovers that everything is not as it seems, and someone has a dark secret.”

This book was quite an easy read, but it still had some twists to make your mind think!

My rating: 3/5 stars.


image# Further Confessions of a GP – Benjamin Daniels

“It is what it says… Basically the diary of a GP and each chapter is a short anecdote.”

Definitely a book to read when you’re busy – short chapters mean that you can take advantage of those few free minutes during the day! Always funny reading about silly stories and the strange encounters that GPs have!

My rating: 3/5 stars.


image# Precious Thing – Colette McBeth

“Precious Thing tells us the story of Rachel and Clara, best friends who do everything together as young girls. They’re 14/15 when they first meet and become inseparable until Clara is hospitalised in a psychiatric institution. Seven years later, Rachel is a successful tv reporter and is working when she discovers that Clara has gone missing.”

I really enjoyed the way this was written, and I think the mystery worked.

My rating: 4/5 stars.


image# The Hunters – Chris Kuzneski

I’ve realised that I haven’t actually reviewed this one!

“The Hunters: a team of renegades – an ex-military leader, a historian, a computer whiz, a weapons expert and a thief – financed by a billionaire philanthropist are tasked with finding the world’s most legendary treasures.”

Admittedly, it took me a little to get into this book. Once I was a quarter in though, I really enjoyed it. Each character was different and brought a different feel to the team. The book includes some good action, a bit of mystery and some history. Not knowing a lot about this time, I’m not sure if that’s why I didn’t get into straight away. I was hooked for most of the story though and I’m really looking forward to the next book!

My rating: 4/5 stars.


image# Spree – Michael Morley

“There’s a murderer about, and Jake Mottram, head of the FBI Spree Killer Unit is trying to find him. Angie Holmes is a psychological profiler, primarily focusing on serial killers. This latest attack on the city is sending everyone crazy, and Jake and Angie are struggling to see eye to eye.”

This one had to be my favourite of the month. There was always something happening, and I really did feel like I was in there with the characters. I like this type of book because you form ideas when the characters do, and you’re also trying to solve it as you read.

My rating: 4/5 stars.


image# The Baby’s Coming – Virginia Howes

“Virginia Howes became a midwife quite late really, compared to the usual. After working with the NHS for a few years, she decided that she wanted to go independent. This book tells us about Virginia’s life, her journey to becoming a midwife and working independently.”

I love a good book about babies! I enjoy reading about real life, and what happens.

My rating: 4/5 stars.


image# A Heart Bent Out of Shape – Emylia Hall

“All in all, I loved this book. It made me laugh, cry and I almost throw it across the room in anger… Always a good sign if you ask me! One twist in the book – I loved it. I didn’t know whether my guess would be right or wrong and it didn’t disappoint. Would definitely recommend this book if you love a good (sort of chick-lit) mystery with a bit of romance!”

My rating: 3/5 stars.
