What I’ve Read – October 2018




I’m getting to this on time this month!

Cherish Hard – Nalini Singh

I’ve had this for ages and just didn’t get around to reading it. It’s fairly typical Singh, lots of stuff that cannot change until of course it does. Lots of bad parenting redeemed by love and effort…

The Fifth Season – N.K. Jemsin

I loved this, I’m so going to read the next two. It was so clever the way the language hints at the state of the world and you assume things based on the world you know and then you realise it was a bad assumption. Jemsin managed to make her world both foreign and completely familiar…

The Very First Damned Thing: A Chronicle of St Mary’s Story – Jodi Taylor

When a Child is Born: A Chronicle of St Mary’s Story – Jodi Taylor

We covered my love of these books last month. Still love them.

Gather the Daughters – Jennie Melamed

This was horrible. You start of thinking this is one thing and realise that it’s something much, much worse. You could at the beginning make the case for a society warped by terrible things, but then realise that the terrible things are the community, that the community, mostly women and girls are suffering were designed, by men for their very twisted benefit. Worth reading but horrible and not for readers without a strong stomach..

To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before – Jenny Han

P.S. I Still Love You – Jenny Han

Always and Forever: Lara Jean – Jenny Han

I saw the Netflix movie and then read all the books, lovely, I love Lara Jean because she’s great but also completely self centred in a teenage way…
