My friend Brittany had been bugging me to read Battle Royale for months because it’s one of her favourite novels. After finishing it, we had multiple discussions about the book, its characters, and overall themes present throughout the narrative. Now, here are some of her thoughts on this Japanese cult-classic.
It has been pretty cold here in southwestern Ontario. And by pretty cold, I mean -25 Celsius at night. These freezing temperatures, paired with the piles of snow we’ve been getting, made me want to curl up under a blanket and never return. It seemed fitting, then, that I recently received a copy of The Hunting Party by Lucy Foley, because this book is perfect for reading on a cold, winter night.
I’ll admit that Watching You was the first novel by Lisa Jewell that I’ve read. I do own a few of her other books, but haven’t gotten around to reading them yet. However, after finishing this story, I have to say that I am already craving another one of her thrillers!
I had been excited to read Not Her Daughter ever since I started following Rea Frey on Instagram and learned that she was working on a book. Her photos and bookish content were always so inspiring and well-curated. I knew right away that her debut novel would be, too. And let me tell you, it did not disappoint.
I’ve been taking some time off from blogging this summer to enjoy, well, summer, but I’m slowly starting to get back into the swing of things! I’ve read my way through a few books over the past couple of months, but the first one I want to take the time to review is one that shook me up in all the wrong ways.
If you’re looking for a gripping story to read this summer with twists and turns, personal secrets, and a fast-paced plot, I’ve got the perfect recommendation. Mark your calendars for July 10, because that’s when Her Pretty Face by Robyn Harding comes out!
If you’re looking for a last minute Mother’s Day gift, you should grab a copy of Aimee Molloy’s The Perfect Mother. This novel was released on May 1, 2018, and had me hooked from the end of the very first chapter!
