A quick read but still entertaining, "The Arrangements" is a quirky, fictional short story about Donald Trump and his family. Give it a try if you've got a spare 30 minutes. I wouldn't say it was anything special, but an enjoyable 3 stars from me!
“The Day the World Came to Town" was a really interesting book which exceeded my expectations. I really enjoyed hearing about the kindness and generosity of the people of Gander who unexpectedly found themselves as hosts to thousands of people. A strong 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.
It's my stop on the blog tour for "The Fallout" by Rebecca Thornton. "The Fallout" follows the story of Liza and Sarah, two mums just trying to do their best for their children. It's full of drama and is a bit of a roller-coaster read, putting a smile on your face one minute and bringing a tear to your eye the next. I enjoyed this myself but think it would be more suited to an audience of parents.
'Seven Days' is a really gripping thriller which kept me on the edge of my seat - 4 stars.
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.
"The Last Lie" is a gripping thriller, but it's not a tough read. I sped through the pages and looked forward to picking this up each day. Predictable and unrealistic at times but an enjoyable 3 stars.
I tried to like "Play It as It Lays" and at times I did think that it was picking up, but I think I've come to the conclusion that Joan Didion is just not for me and I'll be donating my third and final book rather than struggling through another! Another 1 star review 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.
I'm giving "Slouching Towards Bethlehem" 1 star, but not because it's bad or poorly written but mostly because I just didn't understand it.
