October is over? This year is going scarily quick, isn’t it? I did read a few great books this month; stand out for me was Normal People – Sally Rooney’s writing ability is just off the scale. She taps into those tiny emotions we all have with such ease and elegance that you can’t help but fall in love with her damaged characters. I would also recommend Believe Me if you’re in the mood for a rapid-paced thriller that is never quite what it seems or Eggshells if you want to meet a quirky character you’ll be thinking about long after you finish reading.
My October reads, with links to my full reviews:
- The Wisdom of Sally Red Shoes by Ruth Hogan
- Death on the Nile by Agatha Christie
- One Little Lie by Sam Carrington
- Normal People by Sally Rooney
- A Little Bird Told Me by Marianne Holmes
- Eggshells by Caitriona Lally
- Believe Me by JP Delaney
I’ve got a few exciting reviews I’m looking forward to sharing in November including Circe by Madeline Miller and The Importance of Being Aisling by Emer McLysaght and Sarah Breen. I loved reading both of these, although they were very different. One set in Ancient Greece and the other in contemporary Ireland!
I’m also taking part in the blog tour for The Golden Orphans by Gary Raymond this week, so keep your eyes peeled for that post. I’ve got The Death of Mrs Westaway by Ruth Ware and A Keeper by Graham Norton in my TBR list too, looking forward to starting those!
Until next month, happy reading!
