Milly Johnson – Here Come The Boys

Oh how I wish this book had been longer. It was released a couple of weeks ago as a short story ebook in the run up to Milly’s new book which is released very soon. I don’t think I’ve ever read a bad book by Milly Johnson, and this one was no exception. I love her style of writing, I love the fact that she’s a Yorkshire lass and brings Yorkshire into her books, and I love the characters that she creates. This book was...

Nicholas Sparks – Nights in Rodanthe

Well I think this is a first; a Nicholas Sparks book that I didn’t enjoy. Usually I love his books and get lost in the romance, but I just wasn’t feeling it with this one! I just couldn’t form any kind of connection to the main characters, I think in part because they were much older than I am, although this doesn’t usually cause a problem, so I think that probably wasn’t the main reason I didn’t get on with...

Rachel Schurig – Three Girls and a Leading Man

I have to say, this was definitely the most disappointing book of the series. Having read Three Girls and a Baby from Ginny’s perspective and Three Girls and a Wedding from Jen’s, I was right about Three Girls and a Leading Man being all about Annie. But for some reason, I just couldn’t click with Annie. She seemed to be constantly whiny and wrapped up in herself, and she just wasn’t a pleasant character to read. I found...

Rachel Schurig – Three Girls and a Wedding

Since I was left with mixed feelings after reading Three Girls and a Baby, I wasn’t sure what to expect from Three Girls and a Wedding. As Ginny got engaged at the end of the last book, I expected that the book would revolve around her upcoming nuptials. So I was surprised when it turned out that the main character was actually Ginny’s housemate/best friend Jen. Jen works in event planning, usually involved in the smaller scale...

Rachel Schurig – Three Girls and a Baby

Well after reading crime books back to back for a few weeks, I figured it was time to revert back to my old favourites for a while, so up rolled Three Girls and a Baby by Rachel Schurig. I bought this on Amazon quite a while ago, part of a set of three by the same author which were pretty cheap and looked kind of promising. When it finished, I was left with mixed thoughts. I had really enjoyed the book and found myself completely attached to the...

Nicola May – Star Fish

I’ve read a few other Nicola May books before and I’ve had a bit of a mixed bag really, loving a couple of them, and not really getting along with the others. This is the last one that I had left to read on my Kindle, so I was curious to see which camp this one fell in. My first impression was that the characters were rather stereotypical, a rather plain looking woman who doesn’t rate herself very highly, with a gorgeous gay...

Shannon Hale – Austenland

I guess that first I should admit that I started this book with very low expectations. After the last Austen-adaptation that I read (Death comes to Pemberley), I was expecting this one to be just as terrible. But actually, it was rather good. The story revolves around a woman called Jane, living in New York, who has been hopelessly obsessed with Mr Darcy (as played by Colin Firth in the BBC adaptation) for as long as she can remember. Every...
