TL;DR Nano Reviews – January


Hey everyone, guess what this post is?

What, Lucinda?

It’s the TL;DR nano wrap up!


It’s my monthly wrap up where I write a nano review (three sentences or less) of my own book reviews.


I know! So now, I have to trawl through my rambling musings to pick out the essence of my reviews, so you don’t have to. You’re welcome!

I reviewed five books in January which is pretty crap considering I have at least ten unfinished review posts in the pipeline. I need to crack on in February!

The books I reviewed were:

The Woman in the Window by A.J. Finn – FIVE FREAKING STARS!!! Really loved everything about it. Settle yourself in because you won’t be able to put this one down.

Incidents in the Life of a Slave Girl Written by Herself by Harriet Ann Jacobs – One of those important books that you don’t exactly enjoy (far too harrowing) but tells an amazing story in an own voice about a period of history that’s uncomfortable to learn about. Highly recommended. Four stars.

Everless by Sara Holland – If you named all of the YA fantasy tropes then you’d get the plot of this novel. Fast paced but utterly predictable. Three stars. 

A Streetcat Named Bob by James Bowen – A bit meh. Two-and-a-half stars.

The Confession by Jo Spain – Great premise but sexist writing, horrible characters, a flat storyline and the repetition of the term “Celtic Tiger” drove me insane. Disappointing. Two stars.

I know a lot of you do monthly wrap ups, but I thought that nano reviews would be fun to try. If anyone wants to join in and write their own January TL;DR feel free – just tag back to me!
