What Have I Been Reading?

One of the goals I set myself for 2017 was to read twelve books, and amazingly enough I'm actually on target with that, having just read my seventh book of the year - don't forget to have a peek at how I'm getting on with the rest of my goals! I've been sharing what I've been reading here on my blog, so let's have a look at my latest reads...
Mini Reviews - The Cursed Child, Library of Souls, Always With Love
Recent Reads
Library of Souls | Ransom Riggs | ★★★★★
I loooove the first two books in this series and the third was no exception; I find Riggs' writing style really easy to read and his stories are total page-turners! I loved the premise of Library of Souls and thought it was really well executed, too, with twists that I didn't see coming and a whole host of interesting characters being introduced along the way. I really hope there's more to come from this series.
Always With Love | Giovanna Fletcher | ★★★☆☆
Fair disclosure; I haven't read the rest of the Billy and Me series, so I may be losing something there, but I didn't feel like I was missing much when reading this to be honest - all the characters and storylines were fairly well-introduced and there wasn't anything that I struggled to keep up with. Overall this wasn't a bad book - light and fluffy and easy to read, but not really my cup of tea.
Harry Potter & The Cursed Child (Script) | J. K. Rowling | ★★★★★
I devoured this in three hours this week - I think the script format makes for much quicker reading than a novel of the same size would be! I'm now totally unsure whether I'm emotionally stable enough to go and see the stage production, I think I'd be in pieces - I did really love the story, though, and found it so interesting to see what life is like for Harry, thirty years down the line.
What Have I Been Reading
All in all, I think I've been choosing pretty well in terms of enjoying the books I'm reading! I'm definitely going for quality over quantity here... And I'm now making my way through Dark Places by Gillian Flynn which I'm loving, too! You can check out the other books I've read so far this year here and here, if you're interested - I'd love to hear any recommendations of books to add to my reading list - what have you been reading lately? Have you read any of these?
