This month's reads have included 3 non fiction and two fiction books. I'm 48% the way through my reading challenge which I'm hoping I'll be able to complete this year. 

Life without diabetes by Professor Roy Taylor 
My diabetes hasn't been controlled since my diagnosis in 2019. I picked this book up from my local library and I've found it to be really informative. I like that he explains exactly what is happening in the body as type 2 diabetes develops and shows how you can live a full and healthy life beyond it. The only thing that bothered me was the 3-step Newcastle weight loss programme. Even though it is meant to help with diabetes reversal I felt uncomfortable with the fasting idea.

The Fast 800 by Dr Michael Mosley 
This book was pretty similar to the life without diabetes book. I like that the program is alot more flexible than the Newcastle weight loss programme. The fasting idea is that you choose how many days per week you opt to eat 800 calories. 

Untamed by Glennon Doyle
Untamed explores the joy and peace we discover when we stop striving to meet the expectations of the world, and instead dare to listen to and trust in the voice deep inside us. It was an OK read but just not for me. I was close to not finishing it as I was getting a bit bored and found it to be a bit preachy for me.

That Night by Gillian McAllister
One hot summers night in Italy, Joe and Cathy Plant receive a phone call that will change their lives forever. Their sister Frannie has killed a man, and she needs their help. They were always close, some might say too close, siblings who worked together, lived next door to each other And now they’ve buried a body together…

But when they return to England, Frannie, Joe and Cathy become tangled in lies in they’ve been telling, to the police, to their friends, to each other…

A gripping read although not one of my favourites by this author.

The Lies We Tell by Jane Corry
Sarah always thought of herself and her husband, Tom, as good people. But that was before their son Freddy came home saying he'd done something terrible. Begging them not to tell the police. As the lies build up and Sarah is presented with the perfect opportunity to get Freddy off the hook, she is faced with a terrifying decision . . .
Not my favourite Jane Corry read it was OK but I've definitely read better from her.
