All about us – Publish date 15th October 2020
This is an enchanting and modern re-telling of a Christmas Carol which I thoroughly enjoyed. It is the perfect seasonal romance. The book isn’t about Christmas so could easily be read at any time of year but, the majority of the events happen around Christmas, so it gives you that warm happy feeling to read it at that time of year.
I was annoyed by the main character to begin with, he was whinny and selfish but upon finishing the book you know that’s how he needed to be written for this plot to work. I also enjoyed this was written from the male perspective as it is keeping with the classic and so many romances are from the woman’s viewpoint.
It is beautiful story that shows us that our memories are completely subjective to the emotions we are feeling at the time and reminds us that we need to apricate what we have instead of taking it for granted.
I will be buying this for my friends to read next December.
Thank you to HQ and Netgalley for my advanced copy in exchange for an honest review.
Undercover Bromance – Lyssa Kay Adams – Publish date 10th March 2020
The perfect rom-com novel!
I found that this book had everything I wanted from this type of book. It was like an ultimate ice cream sundae, layers of laugh out loud moments, frustration and sadness, sprinkled with with bits that make me smirk, all topped with some saucy steaminess! All together is was the perfect blend.
This is the second in this series (could definitely be read as a stand alone but it would just make you want get the first one anyway as it’s so good) so I went in with high hopes and it did not disappoint and I will definitely be any future books by this author.
Three Hours – Rosamund Lupton – Published on the 9th January 2020
This review has taken me days to write as I have had to take time to get over it (and my embarrassment at having ended up in floods of tears at the hairdressers because of it) and I still haven’t managed to do it justice so check back to see this one or in the mean time grab a copy and read it, you wont regret it!
After the Flood – This is a distopian novel set in a future where the world has flooded and everyone is trying to survive. It is giving me walking dead on water/pirate vibes! I am really enjoying it and finding it hard not to read ahead (its a buddy read so only supposed to read to a certain part before the discussion date!
Hum If You Don’t Know the Words – This is set in Africa during the apartheid and its just stunning. The writing is powerful but accessible meaning you pick it up and fall into it straight away. There is also some light and humorous relief within the pages of such a sad and troubled narrative.
The Nightingale – This has been on my shelf for nearly two years and this year I vowed to read it, I am only 100 pages in so I’m undecided as to how I feel about it yet…
Critical Incidents – I am reading this as part of a read along for The Tandem Collective, they have sent use case files and white boards so that we can become dectives for the week and I cant wait to get started!
Dear Edward – I won this in a competition before Christmas and it only recently arrived and i just cant wait to dive in as I have heard so many great reviews.
Recipe for a Perfect Wife – I got this from Legend Press in exchange for my review and it sounds so good, I am already planning my post on it!
