"The Year of Less" is an honest memoir by Canadian blogger Cait Flanders. The idea of living with less is a really interesting one that will certainly make me think about my own life. I really enjoyed the chatty style of this self-narrated audiobook, it's 4 stars from me!
“The Courage to Care” is an honest collection of anecdotes which teach us about nursing in the wider community. I have nothing but respect for author Christie Watson, and all nurses who have the courage to care unconditionally. The style was a little bit off for me, but overall this was a really enjoyable 4 stars.
“Before Her” is a short memoir of Jacqueline Woodson's romantic history. It's warm and moving in places. I didn't love it, but it was really enjoyable - I'm giving my first read of The One collection 3 stars.
"The Salt Path" tells the true story of a couple walking the South West Coast Path. It's wonderfully written and I enjoyed the narration too. With some important messages, this is a thought-provoking read about taking life day by day. It was a great 4 star read for me!
Anna Kendrick's autobiography is a humorous read and I'm sure that it would be well loved by her huge fan base, but for me, I'm sorry to say that it wasn't that interesting or memorable - 2 stars.
“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!
"Breakfast at Bronzefield" is a honest, candid look at life in a female prison. Highlighting some of the hidden truths behind locked doors, this was a really interesting, educational read - an enjoyable 3 stars for me!
"Becoming" is an eloquent memoir by Michelle Obama. I enjoyed this candid look at her life so far and feel that I've learned a lot from listening to her stories. This was a 5 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.
Jonathan Van Ness has written a courageous memoir about his life so far in which he bares all. It's both fun and heartbreaking, warm and educational. I didn't love this read but I appreciate the journey that JVN has been through so far - 3 stars.
