Read Women Month 2016 wrap up.

So Read Women Month is over for yet another year. I hope you enjoyed it as much as I did! Or maybe just that you didn't find it too annoying.

Amazingly I managed to read twice as many books as I thought I would when I wrote my TBR! (Although three of them were quite short.) Even more amazingly I loved every single one of them! So, without further ado, here is my Read Women Month 2016 wrap up.

(All of these photos were originally posted on my instagram)

To All The Boys I've Loved Before Jenny Han

You can read my full review of To All the Boys I've Loved Before here. I can't recommend this series enough for fans of cute YA contemporary romances. Lara Jean is adorable and Jenny Han sure knows how to write an insufferably cute boy (my favourite kind.)

Purple Hibiscus Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie

Click here for my review of Purple Hibiscus. Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie's writing is amazing and the review I wrote is mainly just me gushing about that, honestly. Purple Hibiscus was beautiful and I am desperate to read the rest of Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie's novels now.

Sofia Khan is Not Obliged Ayisha Malik

My review of Sofia Khan is Not Obliged is here. Sofia Khan is Not Obliged is every bit as funny as everyone says it is and Sofia is every bit as likeable as everyone says she is. Also, this is the only book I read this month that made me cry. Take that how you will.

P.S. I Still Love You Jenny Han

And you can read my review of P.S. I Still Love You here. This is the sequel to To All the Boys I've Loved Before and I actually liked this even more than the first one, probably because there were two insufferably cute boys in this one.

Kindred Spirits Rainbow Rowell Spot the Difference Juno Dawson World Book Day

I'm afraid I didn't review either of these and they both get lumped together here because they were both written for World Book Day earlier this year. 

In Kindred Spirits Elena is determined to line up for the new Star Wars movie a few days in advance, but it isn't exactly how she imagined it. I loved this a lot. The characters were great and I wish I could have a whole novel about them! Honestly, only Rainbow Rowell can get me so invested in the relationship between two characters in so few pages.

In Spot the Difference Avery has suffered from painful acne for years but a seemingly miracle pill cures her almost overnight and she suddenly finds herself in with the popular crowd. Spot the Difference was a really full story for such a short book. I almost felt like I had read a full-length novel when I finished it, which is pretty impressive, and it had a great message too.

The Tales of Beedle the Bard J.K. Rowling

I didn't review this one either but I'm sure everyone other than me has probably read this by now anyway. For some reason I had only ever read the first story from this collection before, which means I was previously missing out on the really creepy 'The Warlock's Hairy Heart'. The stories were all fun and Dumbledore's notes were all very interesting but I mean, it's Harry Potter related, so of course I was going to love it.

And that's it! Those are all the books I read for Read Women Month 2016. A pretty good selection if you ask me. What did you read last month?
