#5OnMyTBR May 15th: Friendship
Black Spire by Delilah S. Dawson
Once again, a book that has been on my TBR for a long, long while. It sounds fun though, and I’m getting the friendship element from the fact it’s a Resistance spy who seeks out allies and brings together a band of outcasts and misfits. Definitely looks like a fun adventure.
This Can Never Not Be Real by Sera Milano
This looks like it might be a fairly hard read, focusing on five teenagers during a terrorist attack. With the way the blurb reads, it’s not a stretch to think the teens end up becoming friends, of a sort. I’m definitely keen to read it, but I think I need to be in the right sort of headspace for it, too.
The Single Mums’ Book Club by Victoria Cooke
Genre: Contemporary – Comedy
This sounds like so much fun, and a core part looks to be the relationship between the three women. I love books like these, that really sprinkle humour into everyday experiences and reflect women working together to get through it. I just hope this one lives up to my expectations!
The Ophelia Girls by Jane Healey
Genre: Historical – Thriller
Another slightly darker one, this one with a group of girls who experience a tragedy. I’m interested in this for its premise, and the darker undertones, and I’m definitely intrigued to see what happens to this group of friends, if they drift apart or meet again when Ruth returns to the home, and there’s the presence of Stuart, which makes me feel uneasy from the blurb alone. Definitely sounds like one to dedicate a fair chunk of time to, if just to savour it – I’m expecting a few twists and turns.
The Good Luck Girls by Charlotte Nicole Davis
Genre: Fantasy – Dystopia
I’m planning on reading this relatively soon as part of my reading challenges, and I’m excited to dig in! It sounds like a story about banding together to survive, and there’s five girls listed in the blurb who I am very excited to meet.
Have you read any of these? Would you recommend them? If you have reviews for any at your blog, I’d love to read them – just link it below!
