Monthly Wrap Up

-| Wrapping Up… May 2020 |-

How fast is this year going? I managed to finish 8 books this month, still not as many as I’m used to but I think it’s a weird time for all of us at the minute and I’m struggling to concentrate on a book for a long period of time.


Something is Killing the Children #1 (Something is Killing the Children #1) by James Tynion IV & Werther Dell’Edera
This was only 30 pages long but honestly I don’t know if I will be carrying on with it, I enjoyed the art style but not sure about the storyline.

Rules for Perfect Murders (Malcolm Kershaw #1) by Peter Swanson
This just wasn’t what I wanted from a Peter Swanson book, I’ve loved the two that I read Before She Knew Him and The Kind Worth Killing they were engaging and thrilling however this just bored me and took me a couple of months to read. I ended up listening to the last half on audio just to get the book finished.

Lakewood by Megan Giddings
I really enjoyed the concept of this story, scientific experiments on those desperate for money. The last quarter really let this book down for me it wasn’t satisfying at all I just wanted more, I needed to know what was really behind the Great Lakes Shipping Company and what they were trying to achieve.

Lake Effect by K.C. Gillis
This is the second book in the Jordan Reed mysteries, Lake Effect is action packed with seriously high stakes making it almost impossible to put down! I’m really enjoying this series and I look forward to reading the next.

The Woman Who Went Overboard by Florence Wetzel
I was sent this book by the author to review and I really enjoyed it!! I only finished it last night so I’m still to write my review but this was different to many other nordic noir books that I’ve read.

Kill the Father (Colomba Caselli #1) by Sandrone Dazieri
The complex and layered plot really captured my attention and made me want to take my dog on longer walks just to keep listening. The only reason I couldn’t rate this the full 5 is that I felt there was just a little too much happening, this book could have still been just as tense and thrilling without throwing in too many obstacles to overcome.

Salvation Station by Kathryn Schleich
Schleich’s writing is both easy to read and addictive. it’s shocking that this is her debut novel. The two story lines intertwine perfectly with just the right amount of focus on each one, I love that we were able to see how frustrating police work actually can be, cases can’t all be solved within a week or month. I really enjoyed the determination of Captain Linda Turner and her partnership with Malachi.

A Promise of Return (The Outlands Pentalogy #3) by Rebecca Crunden
I’m loving this series! I’m not gonna go into details here as I will hopefully be posting my review soon, I wish more people would read this series as it’s so underrated!

What were your favourite reads of the month?
See you in the next one…
