I like this method of talking about books I've read because it'll be interesting to see how my reading habits change and what books I prefer over a period changes too. So without further ado here are some books that I've been reading recently.

A Little Life - Hanya Yanagihara
This book took me way too long to read, 7 months to be precise. I'm pretty sure it was what caused my book slump however it was a book that also intrigued me and hence why I carried on reading it. I wouldn't recommend this book to just anyone, it's a hard hitting novel which deals with suicide, self harm, abuse and death. I cried a lot near the end but I also feel like it shows a story of a real life and something that could happen which makes it even more hard hitting. The reason I found i couldn't carry on this book for a long while was because of where my mental health was, as it (my mental health) slowly improved, I slowly found myself picking up this book.

A Bitter Chill - Sarah Ward
This is the first book in what I believe to be a crime series. I read this in a day, it captivated me and I couldn't put this down. These are the type of books I love, a crime which leads me guessing to the last few chapters. I loved how this book played out, I didn't hate any of the characters and thought the majority of them all had a good part (apart from on police officer).

Unseen - Karin Slaughter
When I picked up this book I didn't realise till I was logging it onto goodreads that it was the seventh book in a series. However that actually doesn't matter and this can be read as a stand alone. A novel in where a undercover detective ends up working on the same case his love interest becomes involved in. I didn't love this but I didn't hate it. I liked the plot and majority of the characters, I did though think the 'twist' was slightly predictable and by the last few chapters I just wanted the book to be over.
