Seven Recent Reads | November 22

You know the drill by now - here are my 7 most recent reads, complete with quickfire book reviews. Let me know if you've read any of them!

She's Gone by David Bell

This is a YA mystery/thriller about a girl who disappears from her boyfriend's car on the night of a school dance - everyone suspects him, of course, and he's adamant he had nothing to do with the events that unfolded that evening. The only issue is, he can't *actually* remember what did happen. So, did he do it? And if not, who did? This is a really good book as YA mysteries go, and I enjoyed the characters a lot. I also didn't see the twist coming, which is always a winner! GET IT HERE.

Anatomy of a Meet Cute by Addie Woolridge

I absolutely adored this book - I'm definitely getting more into contemporary romances, and this really didn't disappoint. We follow a young woman doing her residency, en route back from a short trip home; on the plane they ask for a doctor, and she volunteers alongside another doctor who she instantly doesn't like. Of course it turns out he's her mentor, and things sort of go on from there. I just loved the storyline, the characters, the writing... an all-round excellent book. PRE-ORDER HERE.

The Role Model by Daniel Hurst

Would it really be one of my recent reads posts if it didn't feature a Daniel Hurst thriller? He has so many on the Kindle, and I always fly through them. This one's about a woman who has to aid her daughter in hiding a body, something it turns out she's done before. And when someone finds out, things go from bad to worse. It's full of twists and turns, and it's a standard but enjoyable thriller which I'd definitely recommend! READ IT HERE.

The Infinite Pieces of Us by Rebekah Crane

I'm not sure if I just didn't read the blurb of this one but it was in no way what I was expecting - forced to move to a town called Truth or Consequences in the New Mexico desert, maths-obsessed Esther is really down in the dumps. Home-schooled and reeling from some pretty bad heartbreak, this YA novel takes us through Esther's journey of falling apart, healing, moving on and understanding who you are. It's a coming of age novel, in a way, and I actually really enjoyed it. CLICK HERE TO BUY.

The Intruder by Daniel Hurst

This is about a rich couple who run their own award-winning business, and everything is going really well for them. But when a scorned ex-employee turns up at their beautiful house to try and settle a score, it sets off a chain of events that nobody could have foreseen - the twists and turns in this one are great and while it's not my favourite of his, it's still a good one! READ IT HERE.

The Resort by Sue Watson

Written from multiple perspectives, this book follows three very different couples on holiday at an exclusive beach resort. They are all here to escape something, to desperately try and bring themselves closer together, but of course things never work out that way - a murder happens, and everyone is thrown into the spotlight of suspicion. CLICK HERE TO BUY.

The Niece by Georgina Cross

Another day, another thriller. I really enjoyed this one - I've never read anything by Georgina Cross before, but I'll definitely be looking out for more of hers. This follows a woman, estranged from her family, who learns about the tragic death of her sister followed by another bombshell - her niece will now be coming to live with her. Of course, things like this never run smoothly. This was a great thriller with a really wild twist. Highly recommend! CLICK HERE TO BUY.
