Milly Johnson – The Wedding Dress

I decided to read this as it combines my favourite author with my current occupation – weddings! Unfortunately, I kind of wish I hadn’t read the set of three short stories. It carries on from White Wedding, and although I… Continue Reading →

J.K. Rowling – Harry Potter and the Cursed Child

Well I can’t really say anything at all about this book as I really don’t want to risk posting an accidental spoiler, so all I’ll say is that Rowling has hit the nail on the head once again. I’ve never… Continue Reading →

Victoria Aveyard – Red Queen

I don’t think I’ve had my heart played with recently as much as with this book. The dynamic of the love ‘quadrangle’ changed so dramatically and so often that I feared I might get whiplash. In a world where your… Continue Reading →

Steve Ross – Marked

I recently went on our Church Parish Weekend, and had the pleasure of helping out with one of the youth groups for the weekend. One of the resources given to each of the children during the weekend was a copy… Continue Reading →

Jojo Moyes – After You

I had built this book up so much after how much I loved Me Before You, but sadly, I have to say it disappointed me. It’s taken me almost a month to read it, which is unusual and a sign… Continue Reading →

C.S. Lewis – The Great Divorce

I don’t think I’ll ever fail to be amazed by the imagination of C.S. Lewis. The ideas that he has and the way that he approaches them are simply genius. I took this book with me on our recent Church… Continue Reading →

Brandon Sanderson – The Rithmatist

*sigh* Brandon Sanderson. Is it even possible for him to write a bad book? I’d love to take a glimpse inside his head, his creativity is just endless. I love the fact that every Sanderson book you read has a… Continue Reading →

Milly Johnson – The Barn on Half Moon Hill

The Barn on Half Moon Hill is a 99p e-book that Milly wrote to raise money for Claire Throssell, a woman whose children tragically died in a fire started by their dad. There’s a fundraising page if you want to… Continue Reading →

Milly Johnson – Sunshine Over Wildflower Cottage

I’ve been looking forward to this book for ages, and it finally came out last Thursday. And for the first time, I went to meet Milly Johnson to get my copy signed! I was the second person in the queue… Continue Reading →

Robert Seethaler – A Whole Life

You know you’ve found yourself a keeper when your fianc√© goes to London and you say ‘bring me back a souvenir’, and rather than bring you back some Union Jack emblazoned tat, he goes to the British Library and buys… Continue Reading →

Giovanna Fletcher – Always with Love

After reading Billy and Me while I was in hospital, I was so glad that I’d already purchased the sequel so that I could read it straight away. I loved Sophie and Billy’s story and was desperate to know what… Continue Reading →

Giovanna Fletcher – Billy and Me

I’ve been following Giovanna Fletcher on Twitter and Instagram for quite some time, but never got around to reading her books. But as I was still in hospital when I finished reading Me Before You, I decided to buy this… Continue Reading →

JoJo Moyes – Me Before You

So I did something that I said I’d never do, I spent ¬£5 on a kindle book, when I could have probably bought the paperback for less at the supermarket! But in my defence, I had been stuck in hospital… Continue Reading →

Maria V. Snyder – Magic Study

So while I was reading this book, I kinda broke my blog a little bit, so I haven’t been able to post this review, even though it’s been well over a month since I read it. So I do apologise… Continue Reading →

Maria V. Snyder – Poison Study

If you’re following my reviews, you’ll have probably noticed that I haven’t read very much this year, I just haven’t found myself wanting to pick up a book and read very much. But if I needed a book to renew… Continue Reading →

Kody Keplinger – The DUFF

I’ve had this book for ages and it’s been in my suitcase on at least 3 holidays, but I never actually got around to reading it. I guess I was a bit scared that it would be a bit too… Continue Reading →

Rowan Williams – Being Christian

It seems like a long time since I read this book now, I’ve been really busy with work and not had time to come on here and update my blog. Since January, I have been attending classes at the vicarage… Continue Reading →

Jesse Andrews – Me and Earl and the Dying Girl

I really wanted to love this book as I’ve had it on my shelf for about 3 months waiting to be read. But I just couldn’t love it. I think the book suffered due to the obvious comparisons I was… Continue Reading →

Mike Erre – The Jesus of Suburbia

I feel quite conflicted about this book. For around 80%, I would say I sat reading and nodding in agreement, occasionally reading the same passage over and over again as it just felt so spot on that it was like… Continue Reading →

Nicky Gumbel – The Jesus Lifestyle

After finishing the Alpha course before Christmas, I was definitely ready to dive in deeper. As well as signing up for classes to prepare for Confirmation in March (exciting!), I decided to buy a few books to learn more. The… Continue Reading →

Review: Claire Fuller – Our Endless Numbered Days

Cameron’s mum gave me book tokens for Christmas so I could buy books without Cameron shouting at me (she gets me), so I took myself on a trip to WH Smiths and Waterstones and came back with a few books,… Continue Reading →
