Raw and honest account of what happens when the doctor becomes the patient. Inspirational read, even if the end left me sobbing on a plane #pick

The Mothers: A Novel | Brit Bennett

I found the different perspectives from the three main characters really interesting. So many difficult hard hitting topics were dealt with in this book but I think she did so perfectly. Couldn‘t put it down 🙌🏻

The Manningtree Witches | A. K. Blakemore
post image
Pickpick

My boyfriend picked this for me in a book shop a few weeks ago, purely because he says I cackle like a witch when I laugh. As it turns out it‘s actually an incredible read! A raw, brutally honest and at times darkly humorous account of the witch trials. Really enjoyed reading this one.. might have to get him to pick books for me again #pick #witchtrials

This was a perfect little holiday read. I really loved the concept around time and how even the smallest action can have big impacts on those around you. Wasn‘t overly keen on the ending but overall worth a read #pick

The Lost Bookshop | Evie Woods

This is a book for book lovers! What a beautiful story, felt a little confusing at times (there‘s a lot going on). But the bottom line is that this is a tale about people who love books and a reminder about the power they hold. #pick #thelostbookshop

Grown Ups | Marian Keyes

Mehso-so

I enjoyed the writing and the depth of so many different characters. But in my opinion this book was far too long (and normally I love a book that‘s 500+ pages!) I just found this one dragged, too many unnecessary chapters it felt like I was reading it forever but couldn‘t really identify a solid plot. Not my favourite 🤷🏻‍♀️

Noughts and Crosses | Malorie Blackman
post image
Pickpick

I‘m not sure enjoy is the right word for this one. Heavy, Intense and thought provoking, I finished it in two days!
Wasn‘t quite ready for how dark things got towards the end and it left me feeling a bit frustrated. Having said that, Malorie Blackman is a legend and I can‘t believe it‘s taken me this long to read.

Because of You | Dawn French

I was unsure of this one for most of the book. Couldn‘t quite get to grips with her writing style. I‘m all for comedy in books but some points it felt out of place and unnecessary. That ending however caught me off guard so have to give credit for that..

It Starts with Us | Colleen Hoover

Bailedbailed

I‘m not normally one to bail on a book. But I just couldn‘t carry on with this one. I read It Ends with us and wasn‘t overwhelmed but enjoyed the story telling at least. This however just felt totally unnecessary, predictable and quite cringy. I know some people are obsessed by Colleen Hoover but I just don‘t get it 🤷🏻‍♀️

It was a lovely and endearing little book, perfectly paired with a glass of wine..

Vox | Christina Dalcher

At the end of this novel the author writes “I hope this book makes you a little bit angry, I hope it makes you think”.
While Vox doesn‘t come close to Handmaids tale, I found this interesting and well written and yes it certainly did make me angry and it made me think #pick #Vox

It Ends With Us | Colleen Hoover

Is enjoyed the right word? This is a powerful and emotive read. Didn‘t buy into the romance at all, I found Ryle arrogant and manipulative from the beginning but if this book helps just one woman in a similar situation realise she‘s needs help then it‘s done its job. #pick #ItEndsWithUs

It‘s difficult to describe this book in a few words. Brutal, traumatic, vulnerable, heartbreaking. For such a tough read I found it impossible to put down, its heavy and I had to force myself to take breaks at some points. Definitely not one for the faint hearted but if you can manage it you won‘t be disappointed. #pick

I was unsure of this book at first. It Seemed to take a little while to get going but once it did I LOVED it! There were so many twists that I did not see coming!! I also liked how historically accurate it was, all the references to medieval Amsterdam are really interesting and I became so invested in the lives of the characters! #pick #theminiaturist

I have so much love for this! When people ask “what‘s your book about?” I found it impossible to explain in a few words. There are so many themes and layers to this novel it could be about religion, race, addiction, culture, science..I could go on and on. Fundamentally it is a beautifully written book about what it‘s like to be human 💜 #pick #transcendentkingdom
