This year my Goodreads challenge is to read 50 books which seems like a hell of a lot but I have managed to do it before so I’m crossing my fingers and hoping for the best! So far this year I’ve managed to read 6 books which means I’m on track to reach my goal if I continue to read at the same pace 🙂 For the last few years I’ve written posts about the books that I’ve read with a rating and a bit of a review/summary which I’ve always really loved to do so I thought I would do that again this year 🙂
Before your Memory faces by Toshikazu Kawaguchi- 5/5: This book is the third book in the Before The Coffee gets cold series which I have absolutely loved 🙂 The books from this series are 4 short stories per book which I really like 🙂 This book is set in the sister cafe the cafe Donna Donna but includes some my favourite characters from the previous books and also has the same charm as the others 🙂
Sunrise by the sea by Jenny Colgan- 4/5: I actually borrowed this book from my friend Hannah and I absolutely loved it 🙂 Its a cute romance which I love and deals with the subjects of grief and also mental illness. Its the fourth book in the Little Beach Street Bakery series however I haven’t read the others but could still enjoy the book 🙂
She and her cat by Makoto Shinkai- 3/5: I saw this book in a video by Carrie Hope Fletcher and actually read it on the train on the way to meet my friends in London 🙂 Its a story about cats and their owners and is super cute 🙂
The Seven Deaths of Evelyn Hardcastle by Stuart Turton- 4/5: I downloaded this book on my kindle ages ago and then forgot about it until early this year my friend Hannah read it and recommended it to me 🙂 I absolutely love the concept of this book and I think it is super clever however I did feel like it was slightly rushed at the end and it was quite hard to keep things straight. I was not expecting a lot of the twists and turns in this book so it did keep you gripped and overall I really enjoyed it 🙂
Convenience Store Woman by Sayaka Murata- 3/5: I saw this book while I was shopping with my friend in Foyles and I had heard a lot about it beforehand so decided to download it on my kindle when I got home 🙂 I did enjoy it and it reminded me of Eleanor Oliphant is completely fine however it wasn’t my favourite.
Five Survive by Holly Jackson- 5/5: My friend Hannah recommended this book and I’m so glad she did because I absolutely loved it!! The amount of times I audibly gasped or went NOOOO during this book is ridiculous! There was so many twists and turns and it kept me on the edge of my seat the entire time! I was read it so quickly because I couldn’t put it down 🤣🤣
Let me know in the comments what books you’ve been read so far this year
