I thought it would be a nice idea if every month I dedicated a post to listing all of the books I have read in the past month. The idea behind this is so that anyone reading can, at a glance, look at one quick list and see which books are perhaps the better out of the bunch (in my opinion). I will copy out the blurb from the back of the book, so that you all know what they are about and then I will give you my rating out of 10. So without further ado here we go:
Nerve by Jeanne Ryan
Vee doesn’t know if she has the guts to play NERVE, an online game of high-stakes dares. But whoever’s behind the game knows exactly what she wants, enticing her with lust-worthy prizes and a super hot partner. With Ian on her team, it’s easy to agree to another dare. And another. And another. At first it’s thrilling, as the manipulative audience or ‘Watchers’, cheer them on to riskier challenges. but things quickly get out of hand. Will Vee and Ian risk their lives for the Grand Prize dare? Or will they lose NERVE?
8/10 (exciting and incredibly fast-paced)

10/10 (There will be tears, don’t say I didn’t warn you)

6/10 (Not the best book I have ever read but still very much worth the read)
What’s a girl gotta do? by Holly Bourne
How to start a feminist revolution:
- Call out anything that is unfair on one gender
- Don’t call out the same thing twice (so you can sleep and breathe)
- Always try to keep it funny
- Don’t let anything slide. Even when you start to break…
Lottie’s determind to change the world with her #Vagilante vlog. Shame the trolls have other ideas…
9/10 (A really interesting and honest read)
I really hope you have all found this useful and I really do recommend all of the books on this list to add to your ever growing TBR piles. What books have you been reading over January? I am always open for suggestions!
Goodbye for now!
