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 wanted to know more about the characters when I finished reading that, I think this book was a little bit of a disappointment. Not in writing, Milly Johnson doesn’t disappoint like that, just that the three...

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 read more. I went into the book knowing it was only short (85 pages), and that I was probably going to finish up yearning for more (as always with a Milly book), and I wasn’t wrong. When I got to the last page, I was dying for...

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 and so excited to meet her, and she was just as lovely as I thought she would be! We start the book with Viv, driving into a lovely (albeit extremely foggy) village called Ironmist, looking for her new job at Wildflower Cottage, an animal...

Milly Johnson – White Wedding

Well it’s been a long time since I started reading this book, over six weeks in fact. But I’ll blame that on Game of Thrones since this book was abandoned in my bedside drawer while I went on a fantasy epic. But after finishing Game of Thrones, and realising that I was going to a wedding last weekend, what a perfect time to pick this up again. Except not really, since I was hoping for a beautiful wedding to get me in the mood and...

Milly Johnson – The Teashop on the Corner

I’ve loved Milly Johnson ever since I first read The Yorkshire Pudding Club in a random set of books ordered from The Book People, and I can’t see that love diminishing any time soon, quite the opposite in fact! I could honestly read Milly’s books all day every day, although my poor to-read shelf wouldn’t be very happy about it if I did! I read a lot of tweets in the build up to the book launch, which ramped up my...

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...

Review: Milly Johnson – A Spring Affair

I’m a self confessed lover of Milly Johnson. What’s not to like, a down to earth Yorkshire lass who writes fantastic books. I’ve actually never read her spring/summer/autumn/winter books, so when I was at Barter Books in Alnwick and I saw the Spring and Autumn ones, I couldn’t resist. I’ll have to hunt down the Summer and Winter ones very very soon! The story begins with lovely Lou Winters in a dentist’s...

Review: Milly Johnson – It’s Raining Men

It’s been some time since I last read a Milly Johnson book, but I recently started following her on Twitter and I found out that her latest book came out on the 1st August (with a launch at Meadowhall which I really wish I could have gone to). I’d usually wait and go out to buy it in paperback, but this weekend the kindle version was discounted to 99p on Amazon, so I decided to buy it there and then and cracked on with reading it. I...
