Hi guys! I hope all of you have had a very nice weekend. Well, this month I read 5 books in which 4 of them were in English and one of them were in French. (Actually, I have read 6 books but I haven’t had time to post it just yet…).

Let’s get started right away!

English Books

The Talisman by Stephen King

The Talisman: Amazon.co.uk: King, Stephen, Straub, Peter, Bettison, Edward:  9781409103868: Books
Source: Amazon.co.uk

My ratings: 4.7/5

Rating: 4.5 out of 5.

I really liked this book. I think my dad bought this book very long ago and I found it stored in a box upstairs with other books. If there is one thing I don’t understand is HOW ON EARTH do people manage to buy books and not read them right away.🤷‍♀️

Would I recommend this? Well, yes if you are in the mood to read books of around 700+ pages and if you like fantasy of course!

Before I Die by Jackie Morrissey

Before I Die: A psychological thriller full of twists and turns by Jackie  Morrissey
Source: Goodreads

My ratings: 4.3/5

Rating: 4.5 out of 5.

It was an enjoyable book which will keep you wanting for more but the characters were a little problematic. Maureen and Alva were a little annoying and the only person who wasn’t annoying at all was Micheal and for this reason, he was my favourite character.

Would I recommend this? Perhaps… but it is more of a yes than a no. But I woud tell you to go for it because it had a very good mystery and a great atmosphere.

The Whispering House by Elizabeth Brooks

My ratings: 3.7/5

Rating: 3.5 out of 5.

It was a nice book but again I think the character’s where a little too vague. I didn’t understand Freya very well and sometimes it feels like you don’t really feel certain emotions towards the characters and I didn’t really understand the ending but of course, this is just my opinion. The setting and the atmosphere was breathtaking. I just wish I could have visited Bryne Hall…

Would I recommend this? Well, I am not very sure about this one but maybe..

Mes notes: 4.5/5

Rating: 4.5 out of 5.

J’ai lu ce livre deux fois. Ce livre appartient à ma mère et elle ne l’a jamais lu. Vraiment! Comment peux t-il que qulqu’un achète un livre et ne le lit jamais??

Est-ce que je recommenderais ceci? Bon, pour les gens qui aime le suspense et le mystère bien sur!
