Mini Reviews (March 2022 Reads)

Hi bookish friends!!

Welcome to another round of mini reviews!!

Today I’m sharing my quick thoughts on some of the books I read in the month of March!! Yes I know were just over half way through May but I’m still playing catch up with my review!!

(if you would like to know more about the books just click on the book images and you’ll be taken to their Goodreads page)

PET by Akwaeke EmeziπŸ’™πŸ’™πŸ’™πŸ’™

This was a book that I had been hearing great things so when I found a copy at my local charity shop couldn’t wait to pick it up.

This was a nice quick read, and although I wasn’t blown away by it was still a good read. It did take me a little while to get my head around what was happening but once I did I flew through the book. I thought the characters were well done and liked how Jam’s transition wasn’t made into a big deal, and found Pet and Jam’s relationship to be very heart-warming. Their relationship felt more sibling like as they always looked out for each other.

ME, My Dad and the End of the Rainbow by Benjamin Dean πŸ’™πŸ’™πŸ’™

This was a cute read that I liked but didn’t  quite blow me away like it has other readers. Yes it has important messages with the story, and I liked the  characters. but I just felt that everything that happened was just a bit too convenient. Also I felt the book was a little slow at the art, and only really picked up in the last 100 pages or so, when the PRIDE scenes are described. Overall not a bad read!!

Tomorrow Will Be A Good Day: My Autobiography by Tom MooreπŸ’™πŸ’™πŸ’™πŸ’™πŸ’™

No doubt, we’ve all heard of Captain Tom Moore. The man who brought the nation together to raise millions for NHS Charities during the first lockdown in the UK, by walking 100 laps of his garden before his 100th birthday. In this autobiography we get to know the man behind it all.

Autobiographies can be hit and miss for me but this one was a really interesting and inspiring read. I loved reading about his 100 years of life. Highly recommend both the book and audiobook!!

The Arctic Curry Club by Dani ReddπŸ’™πŸ’™πŸ’™πŸ’™

I had been putting off reading this book for ages, as I really thought it was going to be a romcom/chick-lit read. But I was so wrong. I wasn’t expecting it to be a heartwarming tale, with important themes such as mental health and anxiety intertwined within the story.  I loved most of the characters and I really wanted to hug a few of them and never let them go. This was definitely one of those books where you shouldn’t judge a book by its cover moment. Definitely recommend.

My Heart Is A Chainsaw by Stephen Graham JonesπŸ’™πŸ’™πŸ’™πŸ’™

This was my first read by this author, so wasn’t really sure what to expect but it was a fun slasher fiction. It was well written but did take me awhile to get into. I enjoyed the characters and following their story. There are moments and descriptions in the book that will require you to have a strong stomach but honestly these were the bits I loved the most. A great read, and another author I can’t wait to explore further.
