Some Kind of Wonderful~Giovanna Fletcher

I picked up this book in an Aldi special buy months ago, and begun reading it a few weeks after placing it on my book trolley. I did enjoy it, but as my own personal life took a total turn in the opposite direction I was used to, I wasn’t sure if I wanted toContinue reading “Some Kind of Wonderful~Giovanna Fletcher”

The Five: The Lives of Jack the Ripper’s Women ~ Hallie Rubenhold

For years, there have been countless documentaries, films and works of fiction all revolving around Jack The Ripper but not one person seemed to ever seek out the truths behind the victims until recently.

The Baby Trap~Sibel Hodge

The first books I read from Hodge were Murder mysteries and crime thrillers so for me this was a total change of genre and pace as well as writing style. The book flowed well and was full of humour and light hearted for the most part despite the underlying theme being infertility (a heart acheContinue reading “The Baby Trap~Sibel Hodge”

Dear Evan Hansen

I liked this book in general and it was a good read BUT the scenarios and characters could be really frustrating! They’re mostly teenagers so that’s to be expected I guess! But the whole time I read it I was wishing Evan and Connors social and communication skills were more confident and clear- that wouldContinue reading “Dear Evan Hansen”
