‘Together their life was a lie‘

I enjoyed my holiday read and have also enjoyed reading a psycho-thriller ‘He said, She said‘ which centres around an accusation of assault. Slightly predictable ending though!

No idea what to expect from this one- I loved the cover but I haven‘t read anything else by this author!

Let‘s find out! X

Sarah93 I loved this book so much ♥️ 10mo

‘It‘s time for a wake up call.‘

After two months of not being able to read with exam marking commitments I am so glad to pick up a book.

I love Cecelia Ahern and I‘m hoping I won‘t be disappointed!

9/10.
I got frustrated with the subplot though- it didn‘t bring much.
The villainous character makes your skin crawl. I can‘t wait to read Let Me Lie!

Weekend plans:

- Buy fresh flowers
- Drink good coffee
- Go for a walk
Although #thehappinessplanner is not a 'read' as such, it is full of mindfulness quotations and mantras. Excellent way to start the day. Hope you have a good day, Littens ☺️x

Oh my life. This was a page-turner. It would make a great film. I don't want to give too much away but I had the same reaction to this as I did with Gone Girl- it's brilliant.
10/10.
Loved it.

Em_loves That's interesting @Lilasbooks411 - my room is my second favourite place to read! My favourite place is one red armchair in my local coffee shop...I love getting lost in a book but having the background noise of the rest of the world going by 🌎 Thanks for commenting! X 2y

bobregina I love to read on the couch, with lots of pillows around 🛋 2y
Em_loves All of these places sound fab! @Ms_T - I dozed off once and dropped a kindle on my face and it was not as kind as a book! That did it for me, I couldn't run the risk again haha. Paper all the way! 2y
Ms_T @Em_loves 😂😂😂Yeah, I've done the same! Also, when you start dozing and your finger accidentally touches the screen and it flips the pages. Very annoying! 2y

Megabooks My bed! 2y

maich @Em_loves My favourite reading spot is outside😊 In a grass or in a deckchair. Last month I bought hammock chair. When it's cold I readed in my living room on a sofa. 2y

'Sometimes you have to revisit the past to truly move forwards'

Picked this up in Sainsbury's today. Slightly different from my crime thrillers. Sometimes it's refreshing to indulge in a girly chick-flick and loose yourself to romance, cupcakes and family secrets!
I will update with a post soon!

Had a break from my Moriarty-binge and now I'm ready for some serious 'oh Lordy!' - drama that is packed into one crucial moment in time! Love the way that she crafts these narratives.
Mind you- she will have to work to impress me after Big Little Lies, Truly Madly Guilty and The Husband's Secret! #lianemoriarty #wishes #sisters #drama #relationships #crucialmoments #hiddenagendas #secrecy
