This is a little bit belated but better late than never. I’ve read so many fantastic books in the last four months. It’s hard to choose my favourites but I will do my best. Here are my best reads of May to August 2018 in no particular order. Click on the title below to read my original review.
This was the first book I ever read by Kristin Hannah and I’ve since read two more of her books. Set in the wilds of Alaska, it’s a story about living in the wilderness, domestic violence, love and community. It’s an amazing read.
Read this if you want to be carried away to the Alaskan wilderness by a story that tugs on all your emotions.
Circe was a five star read for me. It had everything: a strong female protagonist, Greek mythology and beautiful writing. I loved this book’s feminist slant.
Read this if you love strong female characters and mythology.

Pachinko is a historical fiction saga that takes place over a few generations of a Korean family living in Japan. It offers a look at a bit of history that not many people know about and has characters that you will care about.
Read Pachinko if you’re looking for a powerful and moving read.
This book was so much fun! It’s the perfect chick lit book when you just want to read something light and entertaining. It tells the story of two office arch rivals, Lucy and Josh.
Read this if you want a good chick-lit book to devour.
This was a reread for me and once again this classic just blew me away. Rebecca is a truly masterful piece of writing. If you’ve never read this before and like reading classics, then I urge you to read this one. It’s suspenseful and has an amazing twist.
Read this if you want to be truly wowed by a book.
