Such a moving story, so beautifully written. It really opened my eyes to the extreme difficulties faced by refugees.

Isabel Delancey has always taken her gifted life for granted. But when her husband dies suddenly, leaving her with a mountain of debt, she and her two children are forced to abandon their home and move to a crumbling pile in the country. With the house falling down around them, and the last of her savings fast disappearing, Isabel turns to her neighbours, not knowing that her mere presence there has stirred up long-standing obsessions. ⭐️⭐️⭐️

Really enjoyed this, but wasn‘t a huge fan of the ending. Will definitely be reading more by Louise Candlish.

A bit of a slow starter, with lots of predictable twists. I did enjoy finding out about and understanding the different relationships between the characters, but it‘s nothing to write home about.

Another book I struggled to put down. Lots of twists which kept me guessing right until the very end.

Fifty-Fifty | Steve Cavanagh

Great storyline with lots of twists, some quite predictable. I really enjoyed the way it was written with ‘she‘ being used as a disguise for the murderer. I‘ll definitely be looking to read more of Steve Cavanagh‘s work, as I couldn‘t put this down.

What a great book! I thoroughly enjoyed learning about the character of Evelyn, and struggled to put it down. Definitely another of my favourite reads from this year

Loved the relationship between Kerry & Noah. This book had me laughing and crying. Will definitely read more of Mike Gayle‘s work.

Such a great concept, and an extremely easy read with the short chapters and flowing writing style. I was hooked from the start and it certainly made me think. Would definitely recommend this book, especially to anyone experiencing mental health difficulties. One of my favourite reads.

A brilliant read and conclusion to the ‘His Dark Materials‘ series. Much darker than the previous two books. A journey of adventure, love and betrayal with a bittersweet ending. Both Lyra and Will are easily two of my favourite ever characters.

Loved the relationship between Will and Lyra. Found it much easier to understand after reading Northern Lights.

Initially found this quite complicated and hard to understand, but I was soon drawn in. Definitely recommend if you enjoy reading fantasy.

Took a while to get into this, but overall found it really enjoyable. I really liked the character of Margery, and found myself wanting to be a part of the Packhorse Library.

So heartwarming! I wasn‘t sure how it would compare to The Flatshare, but I absolutely loved it. 10/10 would recommend. A beautiful storyline with such memorable characters.

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ Found it almost too descriptive to begin with, but quickly saw past it and went onto thoroughly enjoy it. Loved the storyline and became really attached to some of the characters. Was nice to read something slightly different!

It took me a while to get into this one, but once I was about halfway in I didn‘t want to put it down. I definitely didn‘t see the ending coming. A really good read in the end, just a slow start!

Alwaysbeenaloverofbooks I loved this one and I learned so much about elephants 🐘🤣. I am very disappointed in her new one 😩 13mo
camilla_788 @Alwaysbeenaloverofbooks I did love it once I‘d managed to get into it! And yes, loved how much of a part the elephants had throughout 😍 oh really? I‘ve not read it... but perhaps I won‘t bother! 13mo
