So, around the blogosphere I’ve been seeing a lot of bloggers going back to the first books that they reviewed (it may have been top ten Tuesday?) I decided to change it up a little as I didn’t participate. So that’s how this happened, I’ve been reviewing books on NetGalley for over 2 years now. Being honest it does feel like longer but maybe that’s because there’s been over 100!
When I saw that it was these five, it actually made me smile because I remember being so excited that I was able to read and review these books for free! I still recommend a few of these books now so it’s definitely a good bunch to look back on.
Here are my reviews that I posted on NetGalley in 2017…
The Girl Before by J P Delaney
I loved the originality of this plot, it’s a slow burner and I loved hearing the stories from both sides. Each illustrating more of Edwards character. The suspense kept me guessing until the end. I have been recommending this book to all of my friends and family.

He Said/She Said by Erin Kelly
I really enjoyed this read due to its original plot revolving around eclipse chasers. The twists kept coming, even in the last paragraph. Being fed snippets from each timeline and perspective created suspense to the point where I couldn’t stop reading as I needed answers to all of my questions. I will be recommending this book to everyone I know.

You Don’t Know Me by Imran Mahmood
I really loved the originality of this book, After graduating with a degree in criminal justice I thought that this book would be perfect. I was slightly disappointed as I found it hard to stay interested as I felt like it was taking a long time to tell his story. I also found it very unbelievable that a defendant would be allowed 10 days to do his closing speech. Overall I believe that I enjoyed the idea of the book rather than the story.

Did You See Melody? By Sophie Hannah
I truly love this book, it had me hooked from the first page. There were so many twists and turns which made me gasp out loud. I will be reading this again.

Fierce Kingdom by Gin Phillips
I absolutely loved this book, it was non stop. The things that she did to protect her son made me think about how I would react in that situation with my little boy. How do you live with yourself deciding that your sons life is more valuable than another’s? I thoroughly enjoyed this and will be recommending it to everyone I know.

Do you ever look back at your reviews from when you first started?
The change in my writing style and just general format of a review. This was around the time that I started taking reviewing books seriously.
See you in the next one…
