"Strange Weather in Tokyo" is a wonderful piece of uncluttered Japanese literature. This is a quirky romance that I'd recommend and I'm looking forward to reading more of Hiromi Kawakami's work. 4 stars!
Contrary to popular opinion, I didn't love "The Perks of Being a Wallflower" and the writing style was most responsible for this. I didn't hate it, but I just didn't feel it was for me - 2 stars.
“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.
Today we're celebrating “Gorgito's Ice Rink” with a birthday blitz! "Gorgito's Ice Rink" is an interesting story, especially for someone with little knowledge of Russia. This book is a tale of love, loss and broken promises that deserves a little love on its publication birthday. I'm sure many people will enjoy this story and learn a little bit while reading too.
“The Next Forever” is a lovely story of finding romance when you least expect it. Keith and Chrissie are both realistic, likable characters that you can't help but route for and their story makes for a truly heartwarming read. It's 4 stars from me!
It's my stop on the "The Weighing of the Heart" blog tour! This is a cleverly constructed story that I'd highly recommend. It's difficult to review a book like this without giving too much away, but there's art, romance, a little bit of comedy, some drama and most importantly a crime. 5 stars!
“A Little Romance” is a feel-good story that's a lovely addition to the Fairhill series by Alix Kelso. Exploring themes of loneliness, grief, friendship and romance, this novella is a quick read that's bound to put a smile on your face - 5 stars!
Living My Best Li(f)e is a feel-good story of friendship and community spirit that would be a ideal holiday read. It's also an important reminder that what you see on social media isn't always the truth - sometimes #livingmybestlife is a little more #livingmybestlie.
It's my stop on the “The Love Delusion” blog tour! This is a genre defying magical adventure. It was refreshing to see some strong female leads in this type of story and I really enjoyed the fast-pace. It's 4 stars from me!
"One?" is a fantastically English piece of contemporary fiction set in the 2000s. Penelope, Charlie and Zara are great characters and these ladies are some of the most relatable I've read in a while. I really enjoyed this - 5 stars!
