What do you do when your career has consisted of being an escort and a thief and then you wake up and realise you may be too old for it? This is the conundrum faced by Stef as one failed job makes him rethink his entire life.
Can you believe we have made it? We are now in the final month of 2020 and boy what a year it has been!
So, without further ado here is my November wrap up. Thanks to the month long lockdown we had in England I had a pretty productive reading month.Continue reading “November Wrap Up”
I was very excited to the get the ARC of this. Having read the first two in the trilogy, Blood Secrets, I was intrigued to find out how their story ended.
By this point I was very much emotionally involved with Hope, Xavier, Celina, Javed, Daniel and Cressida’s lives so the stakes (every pun intended 😉) were high for this title. I can tell you now, I was not disappointed!Continue reading “Book Review – Sorcerer’s Touch By Imogene Nix”
Have you ever felt like you have had to go above and beyond to show your worth in a company? Have you ever been so concerned you may lose your job that you will do anything to keep it? This is exactly what Ellie Cooke felt and boy did she go above and beyond to ensure her position in the firm.
This was a great read. It was filled with laughter, love and some important issues such as climate change and being more eco-friendly.
This was the first Nick Spalding novel I had read and I have a confession to make. I had never heard of Nick before this. However I am definitely going to be reading more of his titles soon (so soon, I am actually reading Checking Out as we speak)
One of my favorite aspects of this book was the narrative. He wrote in first person which can be difficult to do but was pulled off perfectly. Not only this but he had the character directly talking to the reader as if Ellie was taking to a friend about her life. Not only did this make you like her more but she became a lot more relatable as well as making you feel like you are a bigger part of the action.
This particular narrative style worked really well in this novel, particularly as the underlying topics of the environment are so important. The way Ellie spoke to the reader made sure we were aware of what was going on as well as raising our awareness of being more green.
It was the perfect mixture of seriousness and comedy and the ending was superb!!
I would highly recommend this if you need a feel good read during these tough times, it certainly brightened my day!
⭐⭐⭐⭐ Great story, characters and plot. The perfect combo for a rom com with an important message underlying the entirety.
Be sure to check this out when it is released on 8th December. Thank you to Net Galley for this arc.
Much love 💘
This was a book I picked up very recently. It was all because of the good reviews I had seen on Instagram so I thought I would give it a go
Here in England we are currently in the middle of lockdown number 2. This means more time inside the house as the days are getting colder and wetter (in true British style) This means the idea of exercising outside isn’t as appealing as it once was in the summer months.
This is the time when mental health is an especially important topic to discuss. 2020 has not been easy for most of us, for a lot of us it has been stressful, scary and tough. But we are getting through it, this won’t last forever.
I watched a film the other night called The Secret: Dare to Dream which made me think about a lot of things including my current mental health which I will admit hasn’t been particularly good recently.Continue reading “Can reading ever be bad for you? Lockdown, books and mental health.”
This is the first of, hopefully, many indie authors I am reviewing for my site. Girl Erased is the latest novel by Gemma Donoghue. So without further ado let’s have a bit of an overview:
Lily Johnson is always there. But no one sees her. Because she is invisible. Silent. Unnoticed.Continue reading “Book review – Girl Erased by Gemma Donoghue”
I had heard a lot of good reviews of this book from Instagram and other places and I found it as part of The Works’ 3 for £5 so I thought it would be a good time to give it a try!Continue reading “Book review – Beekeeper of Aleppo by Christy Lefteri”
Imogene Nix has revealed the cover of her next novel of the Blood Secrets series.
I read the first two, Blood Bride and Illuminated Witch and they were both great reads. Perfect if you are a fan of paranormal romance books.
This next one looks like it is going to be another great title by Imogene.Continue reading “Cover Reveal – Sorcerer’s Bride by Imogene Nix”
This was the final book of my own personal alphabet challenge which I will be writing about soon.
It took a while to find a book title beginning with Z that sounded interesting but this one piqued my interest. Firstly, because it is based on a true story and secondly because it is set in WW2. Since having read Tattooist of Auschwitz and Cilka’s Journey I have become intrigued with stories based in this time period, so I thought I would give this one a go.Continue reading “Book Review – Zookeepers Wife by Diane Ackerman”
