Book Review: Twenties Girl by Sophie Kinsella

This is the first Sophie Kinsella book that I’ve read, and I have to say that I think she’s a fantastic, engaging writer. I picked up this book from a Facebook book swapping group. This is basically a group where book lovers can swap books (usually via post as people in the group are from all over the UK), discover new authors and find a new loving home for all the books that you’ve read. I personally love the idea of this type of group and I recently set up my own little group on Facebook for residents of our… [Read More]

Book Review: Reader, I Married Me #GIFTED

I love a good romantic comedy book. There’s nothing better than curling up on the sofa, blanket over you, a hot cup of coffee and a good book.

Her friendly urge her to find another man before she ends up sitting on the shelf all alone for the rest of eternity, but Chloe makes a decision not to do that. After one particularly… [Read More]

Book Review: Million Love Songs

This year, I’ve re-discovered my love of reading. Some of the books I’ve read have been disappointing, but most have been enjoyable. My favourite book of 2018 is Million Love Songs by Carole Matthews. The description on the back of the book reads as follows: Ruby Brown is ready for a change. She’s single for the first time in years and she’s going to dive into this brave new world with a smile on her face and a spring in her step. The last thing she’s looking for is a serious relationship. Mason represents everything Ruby wants right now: he’s… [Read More]

Book Review: Eleanor Oliphant is Completely Fine by Gail Honeyman

I don’t usually write book reviews, but then again it’s not often that I come across a book worthy of writing a review about!

I read the book in just five days, and I have to say that this book has restored my love of reading. There’s something quite wonderful about holding an actual book in your hands.
