A good reading week this week. I finished a book I started last week and I read another book cover to cover. I also bought two books (I don’t know why I keep saying I won’t buy books in January, it never works).
The Olive Tree by Lucinda Riley
This was an audiobook I’ve had for a while (I don’t intend to listen to an audiobook a week, it’s just how things have worked out) and I enjoyed it. Almost wished I’d got to it sooner. It was easy but intriguing at the same time and kept me hooked. Will definitely be looking out for more by Lucinda Riley.
Everyone Brave is Forgiven by Chris Cleave.
This was one of the two books I bought this week. I’ve been wanting it since I saw the hardback in the summer – I saw the paperback in the supermarket on publication day and didn’t buy it which I immediately regretted so went back the next day to buy it.
It was absolutely amazing and a compelling read. Relatively complex but not confusing and I just really can’t do this book justice in a few sentences. I’ve read other books by Chris Cleave and all of them have kept me hooked big style (I thought the Olive Tree kept me hooked and then I read this – I was so much more hooked with this if that makes sense?) I can’t recommend this highly enough.
