This book was beautifully written, but also tragically sad . Medusas story from an entirely new view . Not a villain or monster but a victim who suffered horrendous pain and injustice. This book is an easy 5 star Read for me will definitely come back to this one again

Carrie | Stephen King

Pickpick

Another fantastic read by Stephen king , every iv spoken to said this book scared them but for me I found it incredibly sad every page I just wanted to protect carrie . Also a nice quick easy read so a good book as an introduction into King's work 🥰

KathyWheeler I felt more the way you did when I read this book. Not scared just angry for Carrie. 5mo
emmalouise1 @KathyWheeler yes the anger I had was unreal she had no one and nowhere to go ,school was just as bad as home . Just screaming the whole way through for somebody to help her to save her . 5mo
KathyWheeler @emmalouise1 Exactly! People often miss the human story amid the horror in Stephen King‘s books. This was a tale of abuse where the victim had no escape, and she was forced to extremes. 5mo

Second book by Colleen hoover, although I preferred verity this one was still good. A solid 4 star Read , definitely a book for when you need a cry as some parts were incredibly sad . Definitely going to look into more of her books 🥰

After a really horrible 2 month reading slump and not finding a book that kept me interested, this one was amazing . Quick easy read hilarious in parts and just all around amazing in others 🥰 it really sparked my drive to get back into reading and now I want to rip every book off my cases and read them all 🥰 highly reccomend this one

So I'm currently challenging myself to read stephen Kings IT . Normally I stick to books around 300 pages , however I found I couldn't read IT before bed as I was finding it to disturbing, so decided to use the time to read through some of my shorter books . Mary Poppins was such a cute read to start with . Full of magic and wonder 🥰 4 stars for me . Quick easy to follow and nostalgic

Verity | Colleen Hoover

Wow what am intensely dark book . Picked this one up to see if it was worth the hype and wow just wow . Very quick read. 5 start read for my first Colleen hoover book now to hunt down more of her work 🥰

EKonrad I loved this one and it was also my first CH book. Kinda disappointed with the other two I‘ve read now - her other work is SO different from Verity. Just a heads up. 😊 9mo
emmalouise1 Oh thats a shame I was hoping for something similar, I prefer the darker romances 9mo

Another fantastic wacky book from David wong . The third in the John dies at the end series . Not a series I would have chosen but read at the recommendation of my partner and I'm glad I did it's so easy to fall in love with these characters . 4 stars not my favourite in the series but still very good

Having looked up reviews for this one I was a bit sceptical. However I really really enjoyed it . A story of strong female leads and time travel, a murder mystery and a little romance. Not my usual choice of genre but a book I will be returning to in the future 🥰 5 stars for me ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

First book of the year down . I enjoyed this one the creeps I found to be very good for the most part and there was a couple of twists I didn't expect . Other parts felt like it dragged on a little to long
