Books read this month : 5

I definitely did better this month than last month!

Book 1 : Your Best Year Ever by Michael Hyatt

I’m usually a self-help book junkie, but this one was just okay. He had some good ideas about goal-setting, but since I didn’t take notes, I’ve already forgotten them! Might be worth a reread at some point in the future.

Book 2 : Y is for Yesterday by Sue Grafton

Oh Sue Grafton, I’m so sad that this will be your final book because it was so, so bad. It was long, full of graphic content, and pretty boring at times. Not recommended at all.

Book 3 : Crooked House by Agatha Christie

This was one of my Erin 8.0 challenge books, so it was something that I wouldn’t have normally chosen. However, I enjoyed it. I didn’t figure out the ending and was pleasantly surprised by the twist. It was definitely better than Y is for Yesterday! Recommended to fans of mystery novels.

Book 4 : The Woman in Cabin 10 by Ruth Ware

This was another Erin 8.0 selection (the challenge ends on April 30, so I’m trying to finish it!). This one was okay. I didn’t love the narrator and many of the characters on the ship, so I found it hard to have sympathy when things happened to some of them. Recommended if you’re into mysteries that kind of drag on…ha!

Book 5 : Me Before You by Jojo Moyes

Yet another Erin 8.0 selection! I’ve got two more left to complete the challenge! I absolutely loved this book! I’ve seen a lot of criticism of the main characters, and I understand why, but I couldn’t put this one down. It has some heavy content, but I enjoyed it and how she chose to end it.

Have you read anything good lately? Let me know what you’ve read – whether you’ve liked it or not!

Linking up with Steph and Jana!

  1. I despise Ruth Ware’s books.

    I know a lot of people who follow Michael Hyatt’s advice, particularly his stuff in Platform University and one other book that’s escaping my brain right now. Usually those kinds of books warrant a reread or two since they’re so packed with information.

  2. I hated Cabin 10. A lot.

    I still love Kinsey Milhone but the last few books were not great. Still, RIP Sue, you were amazing.
