#Review Today I am sharing my review for the truly superb – When All Is Said by Anne Griffin #WhenAllIsSaid #5* @AnneGriffin_

Today I am sharing my review for the truly superb When All Is Said by Anne Griffin, I took this book on holiday to Disney with me and was waking up early to be able to keep reading whilst everyone else slept.

I chose to bump When All Is Said up the TBR pile after reading so many fantastic reviews and I am so pleased that I did. This is a book based on a wonderful love story that takes you on a journey from childhood to marriage and through to old age. It is brimming with love, loss, commitment and regrets.

A wonderful story told from the perspective of Maurice who sits down in the very significant Rainford House Hotel one night and tells us his story accompanied by his five chosen drinks to toast the most important people in his life.

I loved this book and just had to keep reading, I chose this to read whilst on holiday and picked it back up every time I sat down and got up early as I was so keen to keep reading. A truly lovely story that will leave you with all of the emotions and feelings.

Book Blurb

If you had to pick five people to sum up your life, who would they be? If you were to raise a glass to each of them, what would you say? And what would you learn about yourself, when all is said and done?

This is the story of Maurice Hannigan, who, over the course of a Saturday night in June, orders five different drinks at the Rainford House Hotel. With each he toasts a person vital to him: his doomed older brother, his troubled sister-in-law, his daughter of fifteen minutes, his son far off in America, and his late, lamented wife. And through these people, the ones who left him behind, he tells the story of his own life, with all its regrets and feuds, loves and triumphs.

#Blogtour #Review 10 Things To Do Before You Leave School by Bernard O’Keeffe #RandomThingsTours #10ThingsToDoBeforeYouLeaveSchool @BernardOKeeffe1 @AnneCater

10 Things to do BT Poster

Today I am taking part in the blog tour for this brilliant YA book 10 Things To Do Before You Leave School by Bernard O’Keeffe. Many thanks to Anne at Random Things Tours for inviting me to take part.

When I read the blurb for this book it really jumped at me, the book is based around Ruby who has had a really bad year leading up to her final year in school. She lost her father unexpectedly and this book is about the aftermath and her trying to find her feet again in the world.

We meet Ruby as she is returning to school after being off for a long period of time, around the same time as she returns to school she finds a letter addressed to her from her father. The letter contains a list that helps her navigate her final year in school and helps her to feel close to her father again.

I found this a raw read as it captures the essence of loss alongside the grief and depression that accompanies the loss of a loved one. This book helps you relate to the every day pressures our children are experiencing  to fit nicely into society. It then adds the insight of how grief changes their feelings and perceptions about everything they have ever known.

I really enjoyed this book and would definitely recommend it to my teenager daughter, it highlights the thoughts and feelings surrounding the black cat and helps raise awareness to encourage our children to discuss mental health openly and hopefully feel that they aren’t alone with their feelings.

Massive praise to Bernard O’Keeffe for the delivery of this book and I will definitely be looking out for future releases.

Book Blurb

Ruby has had a difficult year to say the least. Just before she started Sixth Form, her father died from a heart attack. In the difficult months that followed Ruby became so depressed that she attempted suicide. She missed a lot of school, but now she’s about to go back and she’s worried. Is she well enough to get through her final year? Will the depression return? Should she apply to university? The night before term begins, Ruby finds something that makes the prospect even more daunting: an envelope addressed to her in her father’s handwriting. Inside is a list: ‘Ten Things I Hope You Do Before You Leave School’. It makes no sense. She can’t understand why he’d want her to do these things, let alone whether she’ll be able to do them.As Ruby navigates her way through UCAS, parties, boyfriends and A-Levels, she decides to give the list her best shot, but her efforts lead her into strange situations and to surprising discoveries. Will Ruby survive her last year at school? Can she do the ten things on The List? Will doing them make any difference?

#Preorder The Things I Know by Amanda Prowse #TheThingsIKnow #AmandaProwse @mrsamandaprowse

This week I was lucky enough to receive a copy of the superb upcoming release by Amanda Prowse The Things I Know. I love Amanda’s books, so I dove straight in and instantly loved Hitch I connected with her on a really personal level and could totally empathise with her thoughts and frustrations.

The Things I Know is due for release next month and I would highly recommend preordering as this is another 5* read from the wonderful Amanda Prowse.

My full review will follow in the next couple of weeks in the lead up to publication day 

Book Blurb

Thomasina ‘Hitch’ Waycott loves living and working on the remote family farm and B&B. But she also wants more. To see the world. To own her own home. To fall madly in love.

But those are fairy tales, and if her life is a fairy tale, then she’s the ugly duckling. Her deformed lip, her crooked limbs and her weak heart have kept her from taking chances. But that’s about to change.

When Grayson Potts comes to stay, he’s unlike anyone Thomasina has ever met. He’s aloof, eccentric and exceptionally kind. He’s also totally unconcerned with the physical flaws that have always defined Thomasina.

The two form a bond that neither has had before. It’s possible that it could become something more, but Thomasina also wonders if it’s too good to be true. By putting her heart on the line, Thomasina may open herself to heartbreak. But she may also open herself to so much more.

#CoverReveal The Dinner in the Sky by Anne John-Ligali #TheDinnerInTheSky @rararesources @annejohnligali

Screen Shot 2019-04-30 at 18.34.41

Today I am very excited to be taking part in the cover reveal for The Dinner in the Sky by Anne John-Ligali, through Rachel’s Random Resources. The Dinner in the Sky is part 3 in the Friendships Online series, so let’s take a look at the book blurb to see what is happening in this instalment.

 

Book Blurb

After a shocking confrontation with an unexpected encounter, Constance tries to piece her life back together and is on a mission to finally move on.

The thought of having her friends near is comforting as they take time out of their busy online lives and meet up at their favourite place, A Cupful of Dreams Café. Everyone seems happy enough until cracks begin to show and all is not as good as it seems. Constance tries desperately to keep positive as there’s so much to look forward to: shopping for posh frocks, dinner at The Shard and a movie premiere.

As things start to look rosy, a few odd tweets begin to pop up from nowhere. At first, they seem innocent, but as the weeks go by and premier night draws near, not only do the tweets increase but they become more obnoxious.

By the time Constance and her chums arrive on the red carpet, she’s determined to work out who the troll could be and to keep them from spoiling her evening. However as Constance soon learns, the troll wants to destroy far more than that!

Breathtaking views of London.

Posh frocks and Paparazzi

But there’s definitely trouble in the air …

 

Here is a trailer give you a sneak peak before the big reveal, it looks fab and is making me want to preorder The Dinner in the Sky ready for publication day.

And as if the trailer wasn’t enough of a teaser there is also a playlist that accompanies the whole series. I love a book with a playlist as I feel it really brings alive the characters and story.

#Review #BlogTour #PublicationDay – Exciting news, today is publication day for A Little Hotel in Cornwall by Laura Briggs #ALittleHotelinCornwall

A Little Hotel in Cornwall

Today I am excited to be sharing my review for A Little Hotel in Cornwall (Book One) to celebrate publication day. Massive thanks to Rachel at Rachel’s Random Resources for inviting me to take part.

If you are looking for a short story to slot in your TBR pile then look no further, this book is just 120 pages but you are instantly pulled into the life of Maisie Clark as she sets about making her dreams a reality.

Maisie is a struggling writer who is looking for a mentor linked to the writing programme she has just completed, so she listens to her lecturers advise about taking matters into her own hands and sets off to the stunning location of Cornwall. This book is sure to make you want to keep reading and see how life changes direction for Maisie upon her arrival in Cornwall and see what other surprises are coming her way.

I really enjoyed this story, it is a fun and upbeat read that will make you smile throughout. The characters are really easy to visualise from the descriptions and are quite quirky to really capture you and make you want to keep reading.

A short story that will keep you turning the pages to see if life is finally headed in the direction that Maisie is looking for or if it is all a dream that is not destined to become her reality.

Book Blurb

Struggling American waitress and aspiring novelist Maisie Clark dreams of becoming a full-time writer — even though in real life she’s just lost her chance at an exclusive writer’s mentorship program that would give her novel its big break. Desperate, she decides to take a chance and ask her favourite writer, a celebrated but reclusive English novelist, to help her find a second chance. 

When she receives the author’s reply in an envelope with a Cornish postmark, Maisie decides not to take the writer’s half-hearted ‘no’ for an answer. With nothing to lose, she takes off for the author’s last known location, a beautiful hotel on Cornwall’s western coast. But when the hotel mistakes her for the latest applicant for a maid’s position, Maisie finds herself given an opportunity too good to lose … and a chance for a summer adventure far bigger than she ever imagined.

Surrounded by breathtaking Cornwall and working in an elegant hotel, Maisie’s world becomes one of secret identities, quirky friends, and unintentional mishaps — and despite reminders of past relationship disasters, a certain handsome, charming local resident Sidney Daniels has her conflicted about her heart’s desires, too. 

Will Maisie find the chance she’s been waiting for — and a possible new romance — in her perfect Cornish summer?

#Review #BlogTour Today I am really excited to be taking part in the blog tour for Bridesmaids by Zara Stoneley #Bridesmaids @rararesources @ZaraStoneley

Screen Shot 2019-04-27 at 10.02.41

I am so excited to be able to share with you my review for the latest gem the brilliant Bridesmaids by Zara Stoneley. I loved The Wedding Date which I read this time last year and was so excited to hear she had another book coming out.

If you are looking for a light hearted read then this is the book for you, it is full of love, laughter and some rather large secrets. I devoured this book in just a couple of short days as once I had started reading I wanted to know what was going to come next and whether or not Jane would follow her head or her heart in all the decisions she kept needing to make.

A brilliant story about friendship and how sometimes what might be the right decision is the hardest decision to make where your closest friends are involved. As this story progresses you begin to realise that there are more secrets coming out of the woodwork and as each person confides in someone else in the group confusion and doubt begins to creep in. As I got further into the story, I found it harder and harder to put down as I just had to know what was going to happen next.

I love the characters that Zara Stoneley creates, she describes them in such a way that they feel like they are your best friends as you are reading about their latest dilemmas and you hang on each word to see what comes next. Another brilliant read from the extremely talented Zara Stoneley and I can’t wait to see what comes next.

 

Book Blurb

Meet Rachel, the beautiful bride with BIG plans for the perfect day! The venue is a castle and the dress is designer.  It’s just a shame her husband is a rat.

Maddie and Sally have only one thing in common – they both love the same man!

Beth is a newly single mum with a mystery baby daddy.  Surely the father isn’t someone the girls all know?

And then there’s Jane, the glue holding them all together, but being dumped doesn’t make her the happiest bridesmaid…especially with gorgeous flatmate Freddie complicating things.

Will the bride say, ‘I Do!’?  Or will her bridesmaids save the day…and find love along the way?    

The most hilarious, feel-good rom com of the year!

#Review #BlogTour Today is my turn on the blog tour for Love and Other Things To Live For by Louise Leverett #LoveAndOtherThings #LoveOnTour @ninadouglas @hqstories @louiseleverett

Love And Other Things blog tour cover

Today is my turn on the blog tour for Love and Other Things to Live for by Louise Leverett.  This book is different to what I expected and I thoroughly enjoyed it and I hope my review will encourage you to grab yourself a copy! Many thanks to Nina Douglas & HQ Stories for inviting me to take part and read this brilliant book.

When I saw the book cover, the colours jumped at me straight away and I was requesting to take part and read the book, as I just knew I would enjoy it. This story follows the ups and downs of Jess who feels she has reached adulthood and is still lacking directing, throughout we follow her on/off relationship with Charlie whilst she is attempting to carve her own successful career.

I felt that this story highlights how everyone constantly seeks approval from their peers and those they come into contact with on a daily basis, whilst constantly comparing themselves and their achievements. I found this an engrossing read that covers mental health and the constant pressures of today’s society.

Jess has a friendship group that she has been part of for many years and they play a huge part in this story as they are a significant part of her life. The impacts and pressures of the current world around us are portrayed well and make you stop and think about the differences between our friendships in our younger years compared to our children’s experiences with friendships as the world and pressures around them keep changing.

From the beginning I was routing for Jess to commit to her dream and prove to herself she could do it and that she had nothing to prove to anyone else. A brilliant book that I enjoyed and is so relevant and insightful into today’s ever changing society.

 

Book Blurb

Jessica Wood is an aspiring photographer living in London. She’s had her heart broken, and her friends have pieced it back together again.

But across the neon lights of Soho, in the smell of alcohol and cigarette smoke, on every night bus, in every song, every time she tries to forget: she remembers him.

Now, in a battle between the past and the future, choosing between having a life and making a living, finding her feet or spreading her wings, Jessica must ask herself: who is she really living for?

#BlogTour – Today I am sharing my review on the blog tour for The Pelican by M Naidoo

The Pelican Full Tour Banner

Today I am taking part in the blog tour for The Pelican by M Naidoo hosted by Rachel at Rachel’s Random Resources

When Julia finds out she is poorly she takes extreme steps to try and spare her children and her husband what she went through when she lost her Mum to cancer.

I found this a deeply moving story of how your own experience of loss can affect your decisions when the scenario is reversed. Julia plans to leave everything behind, but life and the Pelican she befriends has other ideas and she finds herself making new friends.

A story of selflessness to try and spare her family pain and unhappy memories. An emotional read that takes you on a journey with Julia and makes you contemplate what is the link between The Pelican and death at these beach huts.

 

Book Blurb

“Because life is about living…”

Julia has never been one to surrender without a fight, but when she receives a devastating diagnosis, she has a decision to make.

Even after thirty years, she can still see her mother slowly fading away with every dose of chemo, every round of radiation, and every lost shred of hope. No, she won’t do it… not to her family… and not to herself!

Without warning, she packs up her belongings and disappears, leaving behind a life that, by all accounts, had been as perfect as they come, and a distraught family full of questions.

Finding peace in a beach house in Northern California turns out to have its complications though. While only a handful of other residents share the tiny beach community, each one has brought their own baggage and developed their own way of dealing with it. All Julia wants is to be left alone, but that simply does not seem to be an option, especially when there’s a persistent bird that declares her to be his new best friend.

Haunted by the shadows of the past, Julia is struggling to cope with the present. Will she have the strength to do this alone and eventually follow through with her plan? Will her family, divided by mixed reactions to being abandoned, come together to try and track her down? And what is the deal with that pelican of hers?

Only time will tell – and time is the one thing Julia does not have…
