For me, NetGalley is the gift that keeps on giving. I’ve requested some brilliant books in the past and none have let me down. I was looking for something meaty to get my teeth into over the winter months and when I saw Colm Toibin’s latest novel pop up, I requested a copy straight away. … More The Magician | Books
With the dreaded C-word still around, I haven’t travelled abroad this year and it’s really had an effect on me. Looking forward to escaping everyday life for a while and discovering somewhere new always gives me a little boost, but this year, I’ve found myself just plodding along, doing the same old thing, day in, … More Hotel du Lac Review | Books
Well, it’s been a while since I last posted on here & it’s because I’ve been working on something very exciting – more on that in my next post!
This week, I wanted to share a book with you that I absolutely loved reading. I didn’t want it to end.

I adore Jojo Moyes books – I’ve read a few of them now and loved them. Her newest book, The Giver of Stars, caught my eye in my local supermarket a few months ago. The gorgeous cover stood out on the shelf and I just had to buy it. This is the first historical novel … More The Giver of Stars Review | Books
Ragtime has been on my list of books to read since the dawn of time. I think it first made its way on to my to-read list back in my first year of uni (which was 9 years ago!) when we were given a list of books that our lecturers recommended. Since then, it’s been … More Ragtime Review | Books
Well, it has been a busy, busy summer! I’ve been on holiday to Montboyer, started a fantastic new job and just got back from a work trip to Monaco. Although life has felt like a bit of a whirlwind recently, I have been able to get stuck into a few books along the way. Here … More Best Books I’ve Read This Year | Books
The Hay Festival is an absolute must for any bookworm. Set in the idyllic town of Hay-on-Wye, the Hay Festival brings together authors, musicians and literary scholars from around the world to discuss current affairs and new ideas.
My friend Emma lent me Follow Your Gut by Rob Knight a few months ago & I finally got around to reading it towards the end of last year. I’m always interested in wellbeing but gut health was something I knew little about. I didn’t even know what microbes were, let alone that I have 100 … More Follow Your Gut | Books
The Day We Disappeared by Lucy Robinson is a book that’s been on my shelf for about 10 million years. I originally picked it up at a Penguin event I went to back in 2015 (that time I crammed all the free books into 2 bags!) and it’s been winking at me ever since. I … More The Day We Disappeared Review | Books
Happy Sunday, everyone! I’ve written another book review – hurrah! It’s one that I was meant to write 3 months ago…we’ll brush over that part. Bonnier Zaffre – thank you very much, guys! – sent me an ARC of The Other Half of Happiness by Ayisha Malik earlier this year. I was so excited to read … More The Other Half of Happiness Review | Books
