I just loved it! 🥰 The Scouse humour and dialect was boss and very close to home 😊 loved reading a book where I knew all the areas etc it's a great series. That ending was too much 😢

One of the main reasons I love reading is because of my parents. Their love of reading rubbed off on me. The stories my dad used to tell me off the cuff when I was little are etched in my memories, they were beyond funny.

This cracked me up 😂 Scouse-o-meter 😂
Jamie Carragher scouse 👌🏼

Velvetfur Hahaha! I'd just like to point out, as a Scouser who's lost her accent by now, that Mel C is not a Scouser, she from Widnes (so I'm told) 😂😂 (I'm chuckling away at all this btw!) 4d
suzie.reads @Velvetfur she was born in Whiston same as Stevie G but that's the point of the comment I think. Plastic scouse to proper scouser. 4d
Velvetfur @suzie.reads Erm, I'd like to also point out that although I know the names Stevie G and Jamie Caragher, I don't know anything about them...! Stevie is a footballer I believe (Steven Gerrard??) and Jamie.....I will have to assume he's a footballer too....😂 4d

Very happy I finished this book, didn't think I would because I feel so rough (I'm too old for Matthew's Street 😂🥂🎉)

I thought this was another fantastic book in the Will Robie series, it's fast becoming a fav👍🏻
The relationship between Robie and Reel is great and I love them both. A very good plot aswell like the previous two books.

I feel like I really missed something when I read this book 🙄 I keep seeing the adverts for the second series of the Handmaid's Tale and it doesn't relate to the book at all for me. I didn't find it thought provoking or anything and didn't feel the feminist strength everyone goes on about. I'm confused 🤔

Hag-Seed | Margaret Atwood

I really enjoyed this retelling of Shakespeare's - The Tempest.
It keeps you on your toes, it's very fast paced but the writing is very good and it's a great, contemporary retelling.
My second Atwood book and I enjoyed this much more than - The Handmaid's Tale. Which I didn't like at all.

Book 8 in the Kay Scarpetta series and I enjoyed this alot more than the last one. It was a really good plot and the relationship between Kay and her niece Lucy wasn't as intense and annoying in this book. She can be abit too obsessive about her niece for my liking.

If you know any children who really struggle with their reading I highly recommend this book. It's a challenge and it's very long but the outcome is amazing!

Mandoul Thats a great recommendation. Thank you 😀 2w
suzie.reads @Mandoul it really is fantastic. A boy I work with started it last school year, he's now 9 and just finished. He is now nearly at the right level for his age. It takes a lot of dedication but it's worth it. 2w
