I liked the short, snappy chapters and fact that the overall message is a positive one, but the story itself wasn't to my tastes. "Posioned" was a 2 star read for me, but I'd still recommend it for fantasy fans, or someone who enjoys fairy tale retellings.
"Postscript" is a wonderful follow up to the bestseller "P.S. I Love You". Author Cecelia Ahern allows us to catch up with Holly Kennedy 7 years later and does so beautifully. I really liked this one, a strong 4 stars!
"The Year of Less" is an honest memoir by Canadian blogger Cait Flanders. The idea of living with less is a really interesting one that will certainly make me think about my own life. I really enjoyed the chatty style of this self-narrated audiobook, it's 4 stars from me!
I've finally read 'P.S. I Love You' by Cecilia Ahern. After years of loving the film, I'm pleased to find that I also really enjoyed the book. Telling an uplifting story of grief and rediscovering life, this was a great 4 star read for me!
It's my stop on the blog tour for "Diary of a Prison Officer", an enjoyable, educational read, shining a light on a failing prison system in desperate need of reform.
"Olive" is a book that truly resonated with me. The leading lady is flawed, she's clumsy and she's still finding her feet in the adult world. A really enjoyable audiobook and a big 5 stars from me!
"Mordecai's Ashes" is a really entertaining murder mystery featuring Karl Larsson, the new owner of an established detective agency. The story was well written and kept me engaged throughout. A really good 4 stars from me!
“The Courage to Care” is an honest collection of anecdotes which teach us about nursing in the wider community. I have nothing but respect for author Christie Watson, and all nurses who have the courage to care unconditionally. The style was a little bit off for me, but overall this was a really enjoyable 4 stars.
The Rampart Trilogy is shaping up to be a fantastic series of dystopian fantasy. The second in the trilogy, “The Trials of Koli” was a really enjoyable read, exploring an already well-established world in even more detail. This was a strong 4 stars for me!
“Before Her” is a short memoir of Jacqueline Woodson's romantic history. It's warm and moving in places. I didn't love it, but it was really enjoyable - I'm giving my first read of The One collection 3 stars.
