Actions Speak Louder Than Words – A book that wasn’t or couldn’t be better than the movie.

Shutter Island by Dennis Lehane
I just loved this film so much! For the first time, the book didn’t give me the same (or better) experience.

Grab your copy here:

The Grass is Always Greener on the Other Side – A rags to riches or riches to rags story

The Miniaturist by Jessie Burton
I think this is the only historical fiction book that I’ve read (being honest I only picked this up because of the cover) and I actually really enjoyed it.

The apple does not fall far from the tree – A parent child relationship that you love

Retriever of Souls by Lorraine Mace
I’m not going to reveal why with this book as I’m taking part in the Blog Tour on the 8th May which I’m really looking forward to!

You can’t judge a book by it’s cover – A great book that needs a better cover

God’s Spy by Juan Gomez-Jurado
A few years ago my partner bought me a random box of crime books and this was in there. If I would have seen this in a bookstore or the library then I probably wouldn’t have picked this up! However, when I read this I rated it 5* it’s so much better than the cover suggests.

You can’t please everyone – A book you hate that everyone loves

I am pilgrim by Terry Hayes
I mention this one all the time, but that’s because this is the one book that disappointed me the most!

What doesn’t kill you makes you stronger – What’s a book that made you a better person for having read it

I don’t have an answer for this, so…

Ignorance is bliss – A book that is bad but you just don’t want to admit it.

Fahrenheiht 451 by Ray Bradbury
I wanted to love this book! I had been waiting so long to get my hands on it from the library. However, I was left disappointed, there were just so many questions left unanswered.

There is no time like the present – What is your favourite contemporary book?

The Ice Cream Girls by Dorothy Koomson
I haven’t actually read many contemporary books, I do remembering borrowing this from the library when I was in high school. A few years later it was turned into a TV series which was pretty good.

Better safe than sorry – A book you don’t want to read in case it’s bad

The Vanishing Season by Dot Hutchison
I know that I will read this, but The Collector was originally a trilogy, and I was so sad that it finished. But since I’ve found out she has now written a fourth one, I’m worried that it just won’t fit.

So there we go, I hope you enjoyed it and I now tag @Bibliogyan and @bookaholicbrittany good luck!

See you guys in the next one…
