One Sentence Book Reviews

I thought I’d try something different today, as I usually get a review posted on a Monday but I don’t currently have one ready to go, so to speak. Things have just been very busy, so although I’d been reading, I’ve fallen off the review aspect. Hopefully will have something else posted later this month, but in the meantime, enjoy this short, one sentence reviews for the last five books I’ve read.

Santa Maybe by Mary Jayne Baker

Genre: Contemporary Romance
Full Review Coming Soon
Rating: 4/5 Stars

Lovely, sweet, and with enough Christmas joy to keep you feeling warm through December

Our Share of Night by Mariana Enríquez, Translated by Megan McDowell

Genre: Horror
Full Review Coming Soon
Rating: 4/5 Stars

Explores the darkest sides of humanity in an expertly woven together novel about trauma and family ties, but veering a bit towards “too long”.

The Amazing Spider-Man: Coming Home

Genre: Sci-Fi (Superheroes)
Review
Rating: 4/5 Stars

Peter meets a possible ally in this story, which manages to put a really nice twist on Spider-Man’s origins – enjoyable for all fans.

The Graveyard Book by Neil Gaiman

Genre: Fantasy/Horror – Children’s
Review Coming Soon
Rating: 5/5 Stars

A charming, witty, Paranormal retelling of The Jungle Book, full of Gaiman’s usual charm – a delight.

White Tears/Brown Scars: How White Feminism Betrays Women of Color by Ruby Hamad, Narrated by Mozhan Marnò

Genre: Non-Fiction – Race/Feminism
Review
Rating: 5/5 Stars

A powerful, must read book that highlights how true feminism needs to be intersectional, and shows the damage white feminism has done from inception to the present day.

So there we have it – five sentences for five books. This was really fun to do, though very hard to distil a review into a single sentence! Luckily, these five were all ones I very much enjoyed.
