2021 READING CHALLENGE | WHAT I'VE READ IN OCTOBER

I'm a bit delayed with some blog posts at the moment as we had a busy half term so I'm doing some catch up. Today I am sharing with you what I have been reading in October.

Invisible Girl By Lisa Jewel
A story of secrets and injustices, and of how we look in the wrong places for the bad people while the real predators walk among us in plain sight. This was a great twisty read which I expected from one of my favourite authors. 



The Institute By Stephen King
I absolutely loved this book by Mr King. It kept me hooked, was thrilling and suspenseful and ticked all the right boxes for a thriller. 

Deep in the woods of Maine, there is a dark state facility where kids, abducted from across the United States, are incarcerated. In the Institute they are subjected to a series of tests and procedures meant to combine their exceptional gifts - telepathy, telekinesis - for concentrated effect.


The Comfort Book by Matt Haig 
Matt Haig is another of my favourite authors. I love how he writes both fiction and non fiction. The comfort book is a manual of reflections and gathers consolations and stories that give us new ways of seeing ourselves and the world. I love these types of reads that get me thinking about how wonderful it is to be alive.




Those People by Louise Candlish 
Not one of my favourite books by Louise but definitely an easy read. If you love her books I'd definitely read it.

Could you hate your neighbour enough to plot to kill him?  Until Darren Booth moves in at number 1, Lowland Way, the neighbourhood is a suburban paradise. But soon after his arrival, disputes over issues like loud music and parking rights escalate all too quickly to public rows and threats of violence.
Then, early one Saturday, a horrific crime shocks the street. As the police go house-to-house, the residents close ranks and everyone’s story is the same: Booth did it.But there’s a problem. The police don't agree with them.
