It's my stop on the blog tour for "Written in Blood", the eleventh book in the series featuring LAPD Detective Robert Hunter. It's highly detailed and descriptive, it's super fast paced and made for a really enjoyable read. It’s 5 stars from me!
I listened to Kim Jiyoung's story in audiobook format and for me it was just okay. The author Cho Nam-Joo uses this story to illustrate a really important message though and I think this is worthwhile read, especially as it's so short. This was 3 stars for me, but I'd definitely still recommend it and may try reading, rather than listening, to this one again soon.
"The Family Upstairs" is a dark domestic mystery that has been really popular with readers. For me, the book was good, but nothing special - 3 stars.
“The Seven Husbands of Evelyn Hugo” is an absolute gem and I can't wait to read more from this author. Telling the story of Evelyn Hugo, a larger than life movie star, this story is truly immersive and will have you hooked – another strong 5 stars!
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.
I really enjoyed listening to Sara Bareilles narrate her book 'Sounds Like Me'. Told through eight honest essays, this is the story of Sara's life so far. This was my first audiobook and I loved it, I'd definitely recommend it for fans - 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.
An emotional and heavy read, Chris Cleave's "Incendiary" looks at the aftermath of a terrorist attack and how grief, guilt and loss can affect a person. I didn't love it as much as "Little Bee" but it's still 4 stars from me.
"Lily and Octopus" is a cute read about one man's relationship with his dog. It's emotional and heartwarming with a little bit of humour entwined. It's strange middle will have to knock a star off but still a solid 4 stars from me.
An emotional rollercoaster which I would highly recommend. 5 stars!
