May Book Reviews: Murders and tears...

Wow - another very different month for me in terms of what I decided to pick up. There were murders, stalkers, love and  - yes I'll be honest - tears! It's been a rollercoaster reading month, I love it... and I want to tell you all about it, so here's my book round-up for May:

The Missing by C.L Taylor 

26224258This is my first read by C.L Taylor and I really enjoyed it. I tend to try and stay away from books written about children missing or abducted or tortured; as a parent it's something I'm not a huge fan of reading about. But I gave this one a shot - 1) the boy is much older than my son so I felt I wouldn't compare them and 2) Cally accepted my choice of cafe name when she asked for suggestions on her Facebook author page. It's a twisty and intriguing novel and I will now read more from C.L Taylor.

Me Before You by Jojo Moyes

12649718Well, as I'm sure you will have guessed this is another book not really in my usual reading genre. But with the film coming out - and me just knowing I'd go and see it with my girlfriends - I had to read the book before that. I sobbed! Yes, there were tears and emotions of epic portions and it was extremely unexpected. I'd heard about the story and about all the women reaching for the tissues but in no way did I think that would include me. I was wrong! Read the book and then watch the film (which I luckily did at a preview screening) - they're both fabulous.
