Favourites from August…

Hellooo, I am back with another ‘monthly favourites’ post because some books I just can’t sing loudly enough about!

Here are some I have read and LOVED during August.

First up is The Royal Game by Anne O’Brien.

I read this book in August as I shall be taking part in the HQ Stories blog tour in September

The Royal Game offers a fascinating insight into the world of the Paston family during the Wars of the Roses. Told through the eyes of three strong and enterprising women, based on their insightful letters.

Anne’s writing never fails to make history come alive and captivate with every page.

Next is The Queen’s Rival by Anne O’Brien.

This book was a birthday present from my mum!

I have been on a bit of a historical fiction binge recently, particularly the Wars of The Roses era, I just can’t get enough!

It is an excellent perspective, and captivating portrayal of events during the period.

Next is The Last Daughter by Nicola Cornick.

A contender for my favourite book this year!

I was instantly gripped with the plot and couldn’t get through the book fast enough, eager to find out more. 

Everything was just perfect, the writing, the pacing, the plot, the characters. Literally everything I want in a book.

Next is Not Here to Be Liked by Michelle Quach.

A powerful, thought-provoking read. A brilliant look at feminism, what it means to be a feminist.

I loved the discussions around the male gaze, double standards of behaviour, and even cultural and generational divides when it comes to beliefs around feminism and the role of women.

Last, but by no means least is Lies Like Wildfire by Jennifer Lynn Alvarez.

The plot catches you and takes you running and tumbling with each twist and turn, just when you think things are as bad as they could get something else springs out at you.

A brilliant read.

Thanks for reading, K 🙂
