My Kindle battery has recently died a death and I’m devastated to say the least. So when I downloaded this wonderful book from NetGalley, I knew I’d be doing most of the reading on my phone. To be honest, it worked out quite well as I always have my phone on me, and whenever I … More Becky | Books

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.

Hey lovely people, I was tagged by BookBloke to do the Reader Confessions Tag and so here I am doing it 🙂 Thank you to BookBloke for tagging me! 😀 Now let’s get straight to it!
Hey lovely people, Well, this week I’ve been thinking about my favourite books from 2015 & I made a short video about it that I’ll link at the bottom of this review. One of the books that was really up there for me was You, Me & Other People by Fionnuala Kearney.
I’ve got a book review for you today & with the Six Nations coming up, I thought it only right that I should review a book centred on rugby – in fact, it’s a Rugby World Cup thriller!
