"The Midnight Library" by Matt Haig is a really quick read that'll plummet you into a magical world. I really enjoyed the concept and the thought provoking questions that it sparked. Some lives were more memorable than others but this is still a really great five stars from me.
"Such a Fun Age" is a topical read that I believe is worth the hype it's getting. I appreciate how the author has managed to leave us thinking about some really important topics, without being preachy. I sped through this and will happily give it a big 5 stars!
“Parable” is a lovely story about one man's love for his dog. It’s a poignant read and one that'll make you smile, and possibly cry! This was a great 5 star read for me.
'Ignatius' by Dan Wood is an exciting page turner that I really enjoyed. It's well detailed and has plenty of chapter cliff hangers that'll make you want to keep reading. The characters are likeable and I hope this isn't the last we see of this pairing. I'm giving 'Ignatius' a great big 5 stars!
“This Time Next Year" by Sophie Cousens is a quirky rom-com with a lot of heart. Minnie Cooper's story makes for a really enjoyable read and a great pick-me-up at the end of a difficult year! 5 stars!
"Girl, Woman, Other" is a worthy winner of the Booker Prize. Telling the story of 12 interconnected fictional characters, this is a fantastic observational novel that I wouldn't hesitate to recommend - 5 stars!
"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!
“Unnatural Causes” is a fascinating read. Dr Richard Shepard tells the story of his life and career working as a forensic pathologist. This is an interesting, honest and human look at his role and the events that required his involvement. I really enjoyed this - 5 stars!
“The Ten Loves of Mr Nishino” is another great piece of Japanese literature that I really enjoyed. This is another quirky romance by Hiromi Kawakami that's unique, thought provoking and very well written - 5 stars!
It's my stop on the blog tour for "Written in Blood", the eleventh book in the series featuring LAPD Detective Robert Hunter. It's highly detailed and descriptive, it's super fast paced and made for a really enjoyable read. It’s 5 stars from me!
