Which books topped the list for our May Review Winners?

Thank you to all our reviewers for May. Your reviews help other readers make their next reading choice – and that's pretty special. So here you go – the top reads reviewed were:
Travels with Herodotus by Klara Glowczewska; The Lieutenant by Kate Grenville (this is on my list to read);
The Blue Plateau : a landscape memoir by Mark Tredinnick; The Wedding Officer by Anthony Capella; Territory by Judy Nunn;
The Choice by Nicholas Sparks and …

The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo by Stieg Larsson which one reader described as:
“A bit bogged down at the start but I stuck with it which paid off as it was very hard to put down. I thought I had worked it out but there were many twists and turns not to mention surprises along the way. I thought it was a great book.”

Another gave it a health warning – ” This book more than lives up to its reputation. Don't read it if you have high blood pressure!!… Read this book with coffee and sandwiches as that's what everyone in Sweden eats and drinks – according to the book.”

They were all rated at 8, 9 or 10 out of 10. Do you agree? Happy reading and coffee drinking (for the Stieg fans).
