Full of twists and turns, 'Haven't They Grown' is a fast paced, unique story that I really enjoyed. I didn't see the ending coming and I was kept engaged throughout. It's 4 stars from me!
“The Hope Family Calendar” is a light and easy read looking at family relationships following a tragic loss. It was a little predictable and I felt that something was missing, but I enjoyed it - 3 stars.
"The Man I Think I Know" is a lovely story of male friendship and overcoming life's difficulties. It may be cheesy and predictable in parts, but it works and I've returned this book to the library with a smile on my face. Mike Gayle's getting 4 stars from me for this one.
A raw, honest story which really makes you think. Jodi Picoult's "Small Great Things" has had me gripped for the past couple of weeks and had characters which were so detailed that it felt as though this story was real. With few reasons to mark it down, I'll be giving this story 4 stars.
A quick informative read of a man's adventure through The Himalayas. Honest, interesting and raw, author Levison Wood gives a detailed account of the places he sees and the people he meets which leads me to score "Walking The Himalayas" a good 4 stars.
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.
An enjoyable read about a disastrous "Grand Tour" and the dynamics between the family members who have embarked on it. A light read which is still able to delve into some serious topics. Slightly too dragged out for my liking which scores David Nicholls' "Us" three stars.
