"What is 50/50 Friday?
Everyone has a favourite and then we also have something we dislike. Like a coin, there are two sides to every question. Example: best sequel you've read/worst sequel you've read. So that's what 50/50 Friday is all about. We will have a new topic every Friday (something bookish of course!). If you have have ideas for this meme don't be scared to let us know!"
This week's topic:
Best/Worst Book in June
June didn't have any stand-out books for me that were either absolutely brilliant or, conversely, absolutely dire. I think my highest rating was four stars and lowest was three stars so these two books were my best and worst, but, while I would recommend a read of The Devil's Elixirs especially if you like bizarre mysteries or Victorian fiction, I would also say to biographical fiction fans to give Doom Gloom a go. Its writing style was too much of an essay for my tastes, but the story itself was interesting.
