Looking forward to this Readathon, after looking after poorly hubby and children, everyone is on the mend so I may get a bit of me time again! ❤️ 📚
Goal: To read these two books that have been on my kindle for a while. Loving light hearted reads at the mo!

A charming romantic comedy about a young woman who agrees to fake date her friend. Dani is a strong independent woman and Zafir has been hurt in the past and has issues of his own. Is the relationship more complicated than it should be? An anti romance main character paired up with a sentimental romantic. What could possibly go wrong?
Mental health issues and anxiety features predominantly and are dealt with sensitively.

Holly Bourne has done it again! Camp Reset - a camp offering a shot at ‘normality‘. Olive, is one of a handful of young people offered a place at Camp. Each one has their own reason for being there. Holly is an expert at her craft and the characters become so real. You really get to understand what is like for young people living with mental health issues.
A beautiful journey to see how all the characters began to overcome their differences.

#superseptember Readathon
Still looking after a hubby with covid and two girls full of colds, reading has had to take a back seat. Pleased to say that I have finished book 1 of 2 for my Readathon goal. Fingers crossed I might finish book 2 by the weekend.

slategreyskies I get this. My husband is sick right now too. Not Covid, but still. Being the caregiver is so draining. Hugs to you. I hope they get better soon! 2w
TheSpineView Yikes! Care giving is draining. Be sure to take care of yourself. Hope everyone gets better soon! 2w

Ghosts | Dolly Alderton

Nina has hit the thirties, has her own home, a great career and a loving family. A new relationship with Max looks promising until he ghosts her. Her dad would normally provide advice but she‘s losing a piece of him everyday and he doesn‘t know who she is. Everyone one around her is growing up including her best friend.
A debut novel which is funny, tender and really makes some smart observations about life, family, friendship and growing up.

Kate in Waiting | Becky Albertalli
post image
Mehso-so

Best friends Kate and Anderson consult each other on every decision including the same boy crushes. But when they both fall for the same boy ‘Matt‘, their friendship is tested to the limit. Set in high school during the musical season, will the curtain come down on their friendship?
There was an over use of the words ‘f-boy‘ which got so repetitive. It took a while to get into the book but the second half was much more pleasurable to read.

Some Kind of Wonderful | Giovanna Fletcher

Pickpick

Lizzie and Ian have been together for 10 years but will it last? A trip to Dubai turns Lizzie‘s life upside . Leaving Dubai heartbroken, Lizzie realises this is her chance to seize the opportunities she missed out on when younger. Lizzie sets out to rediscover who she really is
A light and entertaining read, containing a whole host of characters. I like the fact this is about Lizzie going on a journey for herself and not a quest to find a new man

Noah and Kate were meant to be together forever but marriage isn‘t easy. Noah is now a ‘weekend dad‘ and puts a plan in place to try to win Kate back. One problem….Kate is getting married in 6 weeks.
This is a real heartwarming read. I was rooting for Noah all the way through. Enter Mimi…Noah‘s new best friend who I really admired. There are some sensitive subjects explored compassionately in this book. A real engaging book from start to finish.

A light hearted summer read. Sun, sangria and new starts. Molly has just turned 70 but feels so much younger inside. She starts a new adventure in Spain. Her sister, Nell, turns up on her doorstep and they end up having the time of their life Spain. Molly then embarks on a solo trip to Mexico to chase her own happiness. Will she find what she is looking for?
Well written, warm and fun, easy to read and a great range of characters.

A middle grade fantasy book that I was looking forward to reading. A train that can travel through impossible places, a young girl on an adventure of a lifetime and even a frog trapped in a snow globe.
An ok read. I think younger children would fully enjoy the fantasy elements. The plot got more interesting after half way through the book but the ending was predictable. I won‘t read the next in the series but the illustrations were great.
