"Everything I Know About Love" was a really enjoyable read for me. I found it to be relatable and nostalgic and looked forwarded to picking it back up every day. A great 4 stars from me!
I enjoyed the overall message, and for a short while I enjoyed the extended metaphor, but as the book continued, I lost concentration and interest. "Adventures in Opting Out" was a 2 star read for me.
"999 - My Life on the Frontline of the Ambulance Service" is an educational, sometimes heart-breaking memoir by ambulance medic Dan Farnworth. This is definitely a book that more people should be reading - it's 4 stars from me!
“Astrophysics for People in a Hurry" is not as accessible as the title and blurb will have you believe. I didn't really understand anything and after persevering through the majority, I added this to my DNF pile. Sorry!
"Educated" is a rewarding, powerful memoir by Tara Westover. It's not an easy read, but I've learned a lot through Tara's story and would recommend that you do too. 4 stars!
"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.
“Unnatural Causes” is a fascinating read. Dr Richard Shepard tells the story of his life and career working as a forensic pathologist. This is an interesting, honest and human look at his role and the events that required his involvement. I really enjoyed this - 5 stars!
"The Lost Words" is a beautiful audiobook, narrated by a selection of famous voices. I enjoyed this collection of poetry, but I can't help but feel that the print book would have made for a more magical read. It’s 3 stars from me.
