It has been a few weeks since I have taken part in Top 5 Tuesday, but this week I really liked the topic, so thought I would take part.
Here are my 5 books that I am really pleased to have read this year. Click the pictures for the review.
The Existence of Amy by Lana Grace Riva
This is a type of book I would never have usually considered reading but I am so pleased I did because it was brilliantly written and a big eye opener.
The Song of Achilles by Madeline Miller
This was a beautiful retelling of The Iliad and a really refreshing approach.
Half a World Away by Mike Gayle
I discovered Mike Gayle over lockdown and really loved this book, it was beautifully written but I warn you if you read it have a box of tissues at the ready.
Rain Before Rainbows by Smriti Prasadam-Halls and David Litchfield
Another lockdown gem that I got for free on my ipad but have since bought the hardback version as it is so beautiful.
The Flatshare by Beth O’Leary
Another new author for me this year and it was quite simply a laugh a minute.
So there is my list. Please drop me a link with your Top 5 Tuesday and I will head over for a visit.
