It's my stop on the blog tour for "Sea Wife". This book takes a complex look at marriage and family life whilst sailing the sea around the Caribbean. The writing is beautiful at times but with themes of depression and abuse this isn't a particularly upbeat read. I struggled a little with the terminology but enjoyed it nonetheless. This was a strong 3 star read for me!
“The Weddings” is a lovely story about modern marriage, secrets and stories untold. It wasn't my favourite of the Inheritance Series but still a solid 4 stars!
“The Lion's Den" wasn't my cup of tea. I'd say it was my least favourite of the Inheritance Collection, mostly because I couldn't connect with it and there were some parts I just didn't understand. This read wasn't for me, but please don't let that put you off as others seem to have loved it!
"The Family Upstairs" is a dark domestic mystery that has been really popular with readers. For me, the book was good, but nothing special - 3 stars.
It's my stop on the blog tour for "A Hundred Million Years and a Day", a passionate adventure novel following one man on his quest to find the bones of a dinosaur. I didn't feel completely immersed in the story but I found this to be an enjoyable read with a really good translation.
"No Home in this World" is a collection of thought-provoking short stories that looks injustices in the world from a number of angles. If you're a fan of short stories, I'd recommend you give this a try. Read them slowly so you have enough time to truly take it all in. It's 4 stars from me!
It's my stop on the blog tour for “Out of Love”. This book tells the story of a doomed relationship in reverse, from break-up to first kiss. It isn't your typical romance story but that probably made me enjoy it even more. I'd definitely recommend you give it a try regardless of whether or not you're already a fan - 5 stars!
“The Seven Husbands of Evelyn Hugo” is an absolute gem and I can't wait to read more from this author. Telling the story of Evelyn Hugo, a larger than life movie star, this story is truly immersive and will have you hooked – another strong 5 stars!
“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.
It's my stop on the blog tour for "No Signal". Another really enjoyable read in the iMe series. “No Signal” is fast-paced and action packed story featuring futuristic technology which I can only hope doesn't become a reality! I'd definitely recommend giving this series a try!
