“Wild Dog” is a unique and interesting story about switching off and going back into nature. I'm rating this book 4 stars and I'd definitely recommend checking it out once published next week.
"An American Marriage" by Tayari Jones was a book of two parts for me. The first was compelling, the second not so much. I definitely didn't hate it but it wasn't my favourite either, sitting somewhere in the middle with 3 stars.
“Can You Feel This?” is an raw and emotional story about the relationship between childhood and motherhood. This is a quick, well-written read which will stay with you. Personally I wasn't a huge fan of the writing style, but this was still a powerful 4 stars for me.
It's my stop on the blog tour for "The Operator". This is a light-hearted, entertaining story set in Ohio during the 1950s. Vivian Dalton is a fascinating leading lady and the secrets she uncovers are pretty interesting too. It's 4 stars from me!
"Homeward Bound" is a funny, feel-good read that I'd highly recommend. With music intertwined throughout, this is a story of family, love, hope and dreams and finding your purpose a different points in your life. 5 stars!
“The Lost Lights of St Kilda" is a tale of love, hope and culture that I'm sad to say that wasn't really my cup of tea. This is a beautifully written book and I'm sure it is one that will be adored by many, but for me it was a little slow moving and that took away from my overall enjoyment. I'm rating this one 2 stars.
"Grace After Henry" is a heartbreaking yet uplifting story of love, loss and grief and it's one that I really enjoyed. I love Eithne Shortall's style of writing and felt truly immersed in the story. I'd definitely recommend it!
It's my stop on the blog tour for 'The Aosawa Murders'. This is a complex whodunnit story, trying to uncover the truth behind a poisoning that wiped out a whole family. This story has a unique format that I really enjoyed. I'm giving this one a big thumbs up with 4 stars.
It's my stop on the blog tour for “The Snakes”, a compelling family drama about the hidden secrets of one dysfunctional family. If you're into a slow burning read, this is for you!
It's my stop on the blog tour for 'The Beekeeper of Aleppo'. This is a beautifully written story of survival. Following the journey of husband and wife Nuri and Afra from Syria to the UK, this is a heart warming, informative read that I would highly recommend - 5 stars!
