This may look like a chick lit .. but don't ever judge a book by its cover. It's a smart contemporary mystery perfect for Brontë fans. Actually, you'll love it if you enjoy English literature or books in general.. which you should if you like to read at all! 🤣😋

Jojo Moyes has now officially earned her place among my top favourite authors.

One particular quote from the book really hit me right there in the feels. One of the main female characters is asking her father why he is still so proud of her, now that she has failed and he said:
'Just for carrying on, really. Sometimes, my darling girl, that's heroic in itself'.

Thank you Ms. Moyes. Thank you.

Inferno: A Novel | Dan Brown

Highly entertaining although verging on the absurd at times. Langdon's memory and expertise is incredible. Brought back wonderful memories of Venice and Florence. Gripping thriller riddled with interesting information. 4 out of 5 stars

4 out of 5 stars. The extraordinary tale of Catherine De Medici ... the trials that life offered her and her quest for power.. and love! Although she is not depicted as the purest of women, I felt for her throughout the novel and smiled at her exertions for revenge against those who took what was rightfully hers... A woman who could kick ass but a woman who had her heart hardened with the wrongdoings of others.

Remarkable Creatures | Tracy Chevalier

A fascinating gem of a book by Chevalier. It is the true story of two remarkable women at the turn of the century, their findings, their struggle with male dominance in the scientific world but most of all it is a tale of endearing friendship. Loved it!

Searching for Grace Kelly | Michael Callahan

Pickpick

Really really enjoyed it. It radiates 1950s glamour throughout. Romantic yet tragic. Adorable yet also made of stronger stern stuff. A wonderful tale of fashion, love, betrayal, glamour but above all it focuses on the unforgettable bonds of friendship. Must-read. 5 out of 5.

The Barefoot Queen | Ildefonso Falcones

Mehso-so

The premise of the book is interesting and some of the characters are well written but I expected much more from the book. Very descriptive sometimes unnecessary. Brutal but honest. Girl power throughout. 3/5

My latest #bookhaul. What shall be my next read? Any feedback on one or more of these lovely looking books? You can tell I'm a #historicalfiction lover but I am trying to branch out a bit...😄

P.S: I'm new to this... I don't know why the pic is zoomed in! The original pic is way better 😰
