“Weather” wasn't really a book I can say I enjoyed. I struggled to follow along some parts as the subjects flicked around in this inner monologue. This wasn't for me, but it's clear that it appeals to a lot of people and has been nominated for several prizes. Perhaps I'll give it another try some time down the line.
"Daisy Jones and the Six" has quickly earned it's place in my favourite reads of all time. Telling the story of a fictional rock band in the 70s, this story is so real. It's fully immersive, compulsive and addictive - a very strong 5 stars!
“Meet Me at the Museum” is a beautiful story of unlikely friendship told through alternating letters. I enjoyed this cozy read and will be keeping an eye out for more work by Anne Youngson. This was a great 4 star read for me.
Bella Mackie's book "Jog On: How Running Saved My Life" wasn't what I was expecting and sadly this wasn't what I was looking for. I'm sure that this book will be really beneficial to those wanting to learn a little more about mental health, but if you're expecting a book specifically about running, I would probably give this one a miss.
“After the End” is an emotional, contemporary novel about two people facing the hardest decision of their lives. I enjoyed the narration and would definitely recommend the audiobook - this was a great 4 star read for me.
“Normal People” is an authentic, contemporary novel about romance, friendship and working out who you are and want to be. I enjoyed the narration and the style of writing is right up my street. Another 5 stars!
Jonathan Van Ness has written a courageous memoir about his life so far in which he bares all. It's both fun and heartbreaking, warm and educational. I didn't love this read but I appreciate the journey that JVN has been through so far - 3 stars.
"Conversations with Friends" was a wonderful story to listen to. I really enjoyed Aoife McMahon's narration and Sally Rooney's writing style has me hooked too. This is a witty character study which I devoured in a matter of days - 5 stars!
I really enjoyed listening to Sara Bareilles narrate her book 'Sounds Like Me'. Told through eight honest essays, this is the story of Sara's life so far. This was my first audiobook and I loved it, I'd definitely recommend it for fans - 5 stars!
