What I read in … May 2018

This month, I read four novels and one memoir. Firstly, The Lido is a story of two very different women thrown together when they try to save their local lido from being shut. A good summery read.

Leah on the Offbeat is the latest teen romance from the author of Simon vs the Homosapiens, which I adored. It’s another cute love story that I raced through.

The Glass Castle is a memoir about a woman’s family life, which was often horrific but is also told with warmth and humour. It’s pretty bleak at times but the way the author turns her life around is inspiring too.

Never Greener is written by an actress and is essentially a story of an affair and the consequences for all involved. It was difficult to root for the characters in this one to be honest.

My favourite book this month was Dear Mrs Bird. Set in the wartime London, it’s charming, funny and moving and has a great main character voice. I loved this one and would really recommend it!

What did you enjoy reading in May?
