What do you think you’ll read next?
I read Good Me, Bad Me in one sitting whilst on a train journey, I wasn’t going to put it down for anybody. It hooked me from the very beginning, the very end line of the prologue gave me chills and I knew I was going to love it. The story follows Milly, previously known as Annie but then was when she was the daughter of her serial killing mother. This book delves into nature vs nurture and if blood really is thicker than water. It doesn’t have a main plot but exploring the mind of Milly who had an horrific childhood and has survived abuse whilst struggling with still being somewhat loyal to her mother is so interesting. It’s definitely a chilling thriller and I’d recommend it 100%.
I was kindly sent The Red Thread in exchange for an honest review during a blog tour (my review will be up on Friday!) Despite just hitting the 100 page mark, I’m unfortunately not enjoying it. Although the descriptions are so unique and atmospheric, the entire book is dedicated to them. However, I will say that delving into the world of 1830s Singapore is very interesting as it’s an era I’ve never read about either in fiction or otherwise. More in-depth thoughts will be in my main review!
Despite having so many good books in my current TBR, I’m most excited for The Girl with the Red Balloon and have been since it was announced. It just sounds perfect for me, historical fiction mixed with fantasy and magic elements. It sounds both heartbreaking and beautiful and I’m so excited to get into it. I also believe it features both a Romani character and a Jewish-American character so it gets extra points for being diverse. Despite not reading it yet, I’ve heard raving reviews from bloggers I trust so definitely go and check it out if you haven’t already!
What are you guys currently reading? Let me know in the comments.
Lots of love,
