I loved the tattooist of Auschwitz and I knew I‘d love this one just as much. It‘s such a horrendous tale but full of such strength and courage. I honestly don‘t have words to describe it. Put it on your TBR, you won‘t regret it

Wow. This book was really harrowing. To sit and read what happened to so many Jewish people feels a little bit wrong. To just sit and read about everything that they went through and the horrifying conditions they were placed in makes me feel so devastated. Dita‘s story is that of an amazingly strong and defiant woman. This book will stay with me for a very, very long time. ❤️

The Paper Magician | Charlie N. Holmberg

I found this a bit slow at the start and didn‘t know if I was going to finish it. But, I‘m glad I did! Wow, what an adventure. I really enjoyed the storyline and I loved following Ceony on her adventure. I‘m going to read the other books in the series and hope they‘re just as enthralling

Phew. That took me a while! Anyhow, I really liked this and I‘m excited to read the next book. I‘ve been really getting into fantasy novels recently because I love how it transports me to another world. I love Nahri and I love how ballsy and strong she is. It‘s lovely to have a novel where a woman is shown as a strong individual who doesn‘t need anybody‘s help. Loved it❤️ (also kind of fell in love with Dara)😶

I knew this was going to be a good one! I have raced through it and I wish I would have slowed down a little bit. It was fantastic and such a page turner! So much action and drama, I loved it! 😊

Oh I loved this! It really made me belly laugh. Just the absolute silliness of it at times was hilarious to me. The book was written really well and made me quite proud to be British❤️ loved it, really recommend!

The Dressmaker's Gift | Fiona Valpy

I don‘t normally read so quickly but I‘ve finished this in 12 hours. This book had me hooked from the very start. I love the characters. The story however is so harrowing and it really had me shedding a couple of tears. Really beautiful story full of friendship, love, hurt and loss.

The Vine Witch | Luanne G. Smith

This was a really refreshing change. I‘ve never read anything quite like it. Witches that tend to vines was something I wouldn‘t have put together before reading this book. It was really really good and I‘ve managed it in less than 24 hours. 📚

Yay! I finally got around to reading this and boy, was I amazed. Loved it! Really really loved it. It had me hooked and I really enjoyed the storyline. Aunt Lydia is a legend, that‘s all I have to say. Recommend 1000000%. 😊

I‘ve wanted to read this for a long time and I‘m glad I‘ve finally gotten around to doing so. Such a powerful story. It really puts into perspective how a lot of people really don‘t know enough about the horrors of world war 2. I loved the ending, it made my heart feel all warm. Absolutely recommend❤️

Kiss the Girls | James Patterson

another James Patterson book and the amazing Alex Cross series. I‘m honestly losing the plot with myself because I‘m reading them in such a higgledy piggledy order😂 anyway, loved the storyline and as always I love the way he writes. ❤️ really recommend this book because I love a good thriller and the Alex Cross series always tends to keep me on the edge of my seat. Loved it!

There are not many books where I completely and utterly lose myself. This was one of them. I loved it. Most fantasy stories are set in castles etc. But this one was set in an abbey which was a lovely surprise. Loved the story and the characters. Hugely recommend! ❤️❤️❤️ I loved the cover as well, it‘s really pretty!

I liked this to be honest. But it wasn‘t my favourite read and it‘s taken me a while to finish. I enjoyed the storyline and finding out about Allan‘s life. “You‘re never too old for an adventure”. I‘ll try and remember that one!

Oh this was a lovely story. I secretly fell a little bit in love with Don and his quirky ways. Really sad that I‘ve finished it. I‘m normally not a fan of stories like this but there was quite a hype over it so I gave it a go...and I‘m really glad I did😊 lovely story.

Hope to Die | James Patterson

The fact that I finished this within 24 hours explains how amazing I found this read. James Patterson writes in such a way that I can‘t put the book down! Loved the story. I seem to be reading the Alex cross series in the complete wrong order😂😂 but I love the way he writes and I can‘t wait to read more 😊

The cover of this book is absolutely beautiful. The story itself is really quite lovely. I love how different it is to other books. The storyline is really really interesting and I really started to love Leora. I‘ll be ordering the other two books as soon as I can. Lovely story.

I honestly love the way he writes. The short chapters are so good considering I have little ones to look after! Loved this story, I can‘t wait to read “hope to die” and find out what happens! Little bit miffed that I haven‘t got that book at the moment but I‘m definitely picking it up tomorrow! Slowly becoming my favourite author!!!

THE HANDMAID'S TALE | MARGARET ARWOOD
Pickpick

I have been wanting to read this for SO long and with ‘Testaments‘ coming out tomorrow, I couldn‘t have finished this at a better time. It‘s not a usual read for me and at some points I zoned out. But the storyline and the way it‘s written is so lovely. The ending is a HUGE cliffhanger!!!

Double Cross | James Patterson

This is the first book by James Patterson that I‘ve read. I absolutely love the way he writes! I also loved how the chapters were 3-4 pages long. Such a page turner and it definitely kept me on the edge of my seat. I will definitely read more of his books! Loved it.

I loved the first book, and I really liked the second book. Like I‘ve said before, definitely not my typical read but I‘m really enjoying them! I‘m excited to start reading the third book in a minute! Really gripping and I‘ve grown so fond of the characters.

This book made me feel so many different emotions. I think it‘s incredible how a person can overcome something so dreadful and traumatic as Auschwitz. Such an emotional book. I loved it and loved being able to have an insight into this lady‘s life. ❤️❤️

There aren‘t many books that have had me sitting there and questioning the world we live in. This, however, is one of them. It had me hooked from the first page. Beautifully written and a really, really lovely read❤️ definitely recommend!

I have managed to get the toddler and the baby down for a nap at the same time. Do I clean up the array of toys scattered around our home? Absolutely not. I‘m going to enjoy this half an hour of silence!!! 😂😂😂

The Hunger Games | Suzanne Collins

Very, very late on this bandwagon. However, the first book wasn‘t too bad. It isn‘t my typical read however, but I really liked it. I‘ve just got the other two to read now and I‘m hoping they‘re just as good. Really surprised that I found this so entertaining!

Reagan-reads I was really hesitant and I loved them! I hope you enjoy the rest of the trilogy. 3mo

I was after a short read today ready for starting a new book tonight. This story wasn‘t “bad” but it didn‘t blow my mind either. Not really much I can say about it. Lovely short read, a page turner but at the same time nothing really compelling. I love Amanda prowse though and love the way she writes.

I‘ve managed to finish this book within twenty four hours with two children under the age of five and if that doesn‘t explain how much I loved it, I don‘t know what does! Recommend this highly. Really enjoy the way the author writes. Short, snappy chapters that keep you hanging on a thread. Loved it!

I‘ve just managed to finish this. This definitely isn‘t my normal type of read, however I fancied something different. I absolutely loved it and I‘m a little bit sad that it‘s now all over! Following the life of Sam Hill, when he started catholic school, through to him being middle aged was lovely. This book is full of joy, sorrow, laughter and grief. Absolutely loved it ❤️

This isn‘t my typical read at all. However, I found it really interesting due to the fact that along the way, you find out lots of little facts about the brain. I read this pretty quickly. A really good read, loved it.
