Bridget Jones's Diary was an easy four star read for me. It's certainly not the best book ever written, but it's fun, British and so relatable. Who hasn't had body insecurities, faced a stinking hangover or felt the judgement of others? I'd recommend this book for fans of the film - read it and fall in love with Bridget all over again!
Georgina Horspool is so real it's difficult not to love her. Unemployed and single on the same day and heading home to a roommate who's not her biggest fan either. This rom-com explores some tricky themes but it mostly fun and witty. This wasn't perfect for me but still an enjoyable 3 stars.
A satirical look into the fashion world, "I'll Eat When I'm Dead" explores the pressures faced by those in the industry while investigating a couple of deaths and throwing in a little bit of comedy too. I didn't love it and not being the most fashionable person, I didn't understand it all, but I enjoyed it nonetheless. It's 3 stars from me.
Parts of this book are decent chick-lit that I enjoyed, however the rest of the book was too unbelievable for me. I wasn't a fan of the characters or the main plot points and felt that some of the book was still stuck in the past with the original. I'd give "The Rise & Fall of Becky Sharp" two stars.
Full of friendship, family and feuds, I highly recommend "Big Little Lies" . Read the book, watch the show, it's 5 stars.
It's an easy read but "City of Friends" is full of petty dramas and arguments over nothing. The story doesn't offer anything new or exciting and I don't feel that this book was anything special. I didn't particularly dislike the characters but perhaps I'd prefer it if something dramatic happened - it is fiction after all! It's 2 stars for this one.
A decent family story with realistic varied characters, I found that "The Last Anniversary" couldn't impress me with its mystery, but kept me interested with its relationships and family dramas. I'm intrigued by Liane Moriarty's writing and will keep her in mind when choosing my next books, however this book was just too long and the predictable reveal of the Munro baby means this book is only getting three stars from me.
A light holiday read about a holiday which couldn't get much worse. Easy to read and enjoyable too, it's not fantastic literature, but it's not claiming to be either. I'll be giving "Wish You Were Here" 4 stars.
I really loved this story of moving on after loss and heartbreak. With detailed, realistic characters, the funny, honest and sweet sequel to "Me Before You", "After You", scores 5 stars.
A fun easy read full of love and laughs, a town full of likable and entertaining characters and a plot full of twists and turns. Enjoyable, just slightly too long and repetitive for me which scores this book 3 stars.
