This is the second novel i have read by E.M Forster and my God!- i think i have found my favourite novelist!!
His writing and works are so incredible and i just cant get enough of it! I love his style of writing and i love the story lines he comes out with and i love the way he adds a reality to each fictional piece!
I also loved how at the end of this novel he wrote 'A room without a view' in the appendix! Such a wonderful way to end the novel!

Overall i liked the writing style of Janette Jenkins, but not this story so much.
Jane was a cripple in 1899 London, and she was sucked into assisting Dr. Swift with supplying tinctures to pregnant ladies after her family abandon her, it came as quite a shock to me when Swift backstabbed Jane and put all the blame of his workings onto her which ended her in prison.

One unanswered question though;
- What did Johnny Treble actually die from?

1) I have read every book written by Stephen King/I've never travelled outside of the United Kingdom/I have plans to start writing my own Novel in the new year.
2) I didn't really like the first half of 'Daisy Jones and The Six' much.
3) I have never met an author- I have a friend that's in the process of having his work published so soon it'll be a yes! 🎉
4) Cold.... Can add layers if need be!

So in a previous post i explained that i felt this book to, 'Cliché' and 'Cringy.' Well, i still think that it is both those things up until 'Aurora 1977-1978' and more so 'Aurora world tour 1978-1979.'

(CONTINUE IN COMMENTS)

Clutterbucks_Queen I didn't warm to Daisy at all, i found her to be a disruptive force and i found it really annoying that she ended up having to be told by Camila to back off... 3w
Clutterbucks_Queen I felt quite a sadness for Graham and Karen and their situation. But it is what it is and some people, such as Karen, just know what they want with their lives for definite. 3w
Clutterbucks_Queen But my favourite person, even though he was unfaithful in the beginning to Camila, was Billy! He fought for sobriety, he succeeded. He fought for his children and Camila, he succeeded. He is my idea of an amazing person that has got his head screwed on. He showed such strength to be who he was with all the sadness that occured in his life. 3w
Clutterbucks_Queen It involved many aspects i personally find difficult to hear/read/know about, but i really liked the fact it was written through the eyes of Julia, Billy and Camila's eldest daughter! So it's definitely worth a 3 star and a read! ⭐⭐⭐ 3w

I so badly want to love this book after reading all the amazing reviews, but im nearly halfway through and despite the touching moment where Billy meets his daughter for the first time, I'm really not enjoying it like i hoped ☹️
I find it very cliché and stereotypically written regarding band members etc. Kind of cringy for me so far 🤷‍♀️

Reagan-reads Yep. It ended up as a pick for me but nowhere near the rave reviews I see elsewhere. 3w
Clutterbucks_Queen I'm quite gutted to be honest. I really wanted to enjoy it. I'm going to try to finish it but it's dragging for me 😴 3w

ANOTHER BRILLIANT, WITTY AND UN-PUT-DOWNABLE BY GILL SIMS 👏

These books are so relatable to real life and parenting and all the difficulties of marriage and family life, yet they shine a light on it all and put things into perspective. For me that realism is what makes these books so good! The incidents with using mums best gravy jug for the stepsister while she's in labour just add something to giggle about. 🤭

Not going to lie, at the start i didn't really enjoy this book. I felt there was too much sarcasm and use of the word 'Moppets' but about halfway through there was the incidents at Christmas with Louisa and her tribe; the bath oils and and the sperm smoothies; and it had me in hysterics!

I felt a great sympathy for Jeremy and his two daughters after the loss of Lizzie.
It stuns me everyday how things such as Lizzies murder happen everyday around the world, for no apparent reasoning. It's a very cruel fate and a very sad thing to have to go through as the family of the deceased and it must have been very emotional for Jeremy to bring forth all the memories of Lizzie while writing this book.
A very brave thing to do!

What a delight this was to read! 🥰
This story takes us through Emmeline Lake's job working for Henrietta Bird (Agony Aunt) and ending up doing a better job than her! It also tells us of her new found relationship with Charles and her best friend Buntys fiancé, William, dying in an air raid which temporarily breaks their friendship apart; (I can't help but blame Vera for his death..)
It made me well up in places, but made me smile in others!

I've always loved Tom Hanks as an actor with the many roles he has played, and i can safetly say he's turned out to he an incredibly imaginitive author!

What an incredible, inspiring, brave woman!
How amazing that she became paralysed yet STILL tried to follow her dreams of horse riding. I'm just sorry that in the end she did have to give up her love of horses but the strength and determination it must have taken her to try again was incredible!
It would be an honour to know this lady personally.

'..Rupert Sheldrake the philosopher writes of the "Privelage of consciousness"- how we are probably the only species that knows we exist. An elephant knows how exactly to he an elephant-but we dont know how to be just a human being. We think outside the box. And maybe that's the trouble. So, with that privelage comes immense responsibility.'

Fantastic story line in this one!
How amazing that a different wild cat still saved Hamish and Freddie!
I'm so glad Hamish and Lugs finally got the real Sonsie back though! 😍 And quite a sweet ending for Hamish getting himself a pretty policewoman working for him! ☺

I can't wait for the next Hamish Macbeth Murder Mystery to be released! Death of a love, I'm waiting! 🥰

Although it's written in the perspective of a father, and I'm a mother I still managed to relate to Brian's parenting trials and worries!
A thorough mixture of emotions were felt while reading this, some feelings me and my partner and yet to sense as our children haven't reached teenage years or adult life yet, but a brilliant read!

Another brilliant piece of work! Looks as though Hamish and Elspeth may rekindle things? 🤞 I didn't expect it to take the turn it did regarding who the murderer was though! Usually the murderer is in the story early on but it wasn't the case with this story! Lovely read though, great plot and always a few laughs in the story that lighten it up a bit! ☺

Another great read, but there were unfortunately several aspects that got to me this time!
I found myself getting very annoyed at Heathers character and the way she always managed to constantly escape, and just as i felt elated at Hamish finally getting engaged to Elspeth, Elspeth messes it up..

I adore Dicks character in the book though! It's been nice to see Hamish finally happy enough to share his police station!

So this was written a bit differently to the other Hamish Macbeth murder mysteries but i found i enjoyed the style better!
I liked the fact the murder was committed in the first chapter as an opening to the story instead of halfway through like the other books in this series, and i found the story line very gripping but easy to read!
This one is definitely a 5/5 from me!
