This book was enjoyable to read but I got annoyed with the characters towards the end. It wasn't unput down able but it as OK.

Forget My Name | J.S. Monroe

This book gave me nightmares. It shouldn't have, it's not particularly gruesome or violent but still I had nightmares. Lots of twists and unexpected things in this and I'll never be able to look at a seashore again

What an inspiration. A tragic story but one of overcoming.

Being childless not by choice is a hard position to find yourself. This book is a great resource it remind you that you're not alone and gives some practical steps and exercises to start exploring the what next.im sure it would also be a great resource for those supporting someone who finds themselves in this situation. A great read

Death by Darjeeling | Laura Childs
Pickpick

This is the first cosy mystery I've read and I found it an enjoyable and calming read. A nicely put together plot line set against the backdrop of a tea shop but with enough suspense to keep you reading

An enjoyable read set in a scenario I don't know too much about. Well thought out with engaging characters and made me want to find out more

The Perfect Girlfriend | Karen Hamilton
Pickpick

This book shows the darker side of break ups. It didn't end how I thought it would at all and left me a little bit angry at the person involved. But not everything in life has a happy ending

Enjoyable look at how people and events can shape your future. I expected a little more pizzazz from this book or a little more excitement and twist but it never really came.

We've all been in that situation where our mouth acts before the brain engages. This book takes it a bit further and leaves you cringing at times at what people have said. That being said some of the chapters did drag on a little

This was a chilling tale and I was hooked

An uncomfortable predicament. I felt for the friends in this, both of them, we all have friends like this but the bitterness in it made it a difficult one to be sympathetic to

Rissreads I liked this one. Difficult subject matter. 5d

Enjoyable but took me a long time to read.

Uncomfortable. Chilling. And utterly twisted. Told sympathetically but leaving you feeling cold.

When the Lion Feeds | Wilbur Smith

The first Wilbur Smith book I've read. My grandmother was always a fan of Smith but I had never read one until now. It didn't disappoint. Beautifully told story which gives life to the characters and left me wanting more

Sound of Thunder | Wilbur Smith

Enjoyed this as much as the first Courtney novel. Captured my interest well written and heartfelt.

Everything I don't remember was so so. It didn't capture me completely but I still finished it.

I picked this book for the cover and I'm not ashamed to admit that. It turned out to be such a wonderful book. Lots of emotion and I really connected with the characters. All had their own individual issues and it was all put across so well

A lovely book. The main character is both relatable and true. I was rooting for her throughout. Throw in the nod to classical music and I was hooked.

Ooh this book creeped me out. Psychologically twisty and very well written.

God Jar | Phill Featherstone

Not my usual genre of book and I didn't dislike it but the main character was whiney and annoying. It had potential and it was worth a read but it didn't stay with me for long

Out of Sight | James Patterson
Mehso-so

This book had a good premise. And I'd heard good things about James Patterson. The book had some twists and turns and I guess was quite a thrilling plot line but it just seemed too unreal for me. It didn't catch my imagination and the ending just made me sigh.

A Sparrow Falls | Wilbur Smith
Mehso-so

I've only recently started reading Wilbur smiths books and ate up the first two of the Courtney tales. This one however was mediocre. I didn't hate it but it didn't have me hooked like the first 2 until the end.

I've followed simple politics for a long time and was keen to read this book. A great introduction to politics and the political ideals of the UK. Informative without being patronising.

I fell in love with this book. Told from the dogs perspective and from the outset I knew I was going to cry and I was not wrong. Beautifully written.
