Hot Dog Girl, Jennifer Dugan (REVIEW)

Posted in Books
on 08/05/2019

I’ve been waiting for Hot Dog Girl for SO LONG. So much so, it was one of my most anticipated reads of 2019.

Good job that publication week also falls on a bank holiday in the UK because you bet I just sat and read it pretty much in one day… Except for the 70ish pages I read during my lunch breaks because I couldn’t wait.

Was my excitement rightly placed? Keep reading to find out… Continue reading

Don’t You Forget About Me, Mhairi McFarlane

Books on sale in supermarkets always get me. Whether it’s the 2 for £7 deals or the £4 paperbacks, it’s rare I leave a supermarket without a new book to work through. This book, however, is a little different. I spotted it in Tesco. It’s a pretty bright cover so you can’t really miss it.

I knew immediately I wanted it but, as I found out when I got home, this wasn’t the first time I’d thought the book looked good…

Thank you to Harper Collins for an advanced e-copy of this book via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review. Thank you, also, to my awful memory and my bank account for forgetting all about it.

This is your warning: spoilers ahead. I tried to make this spoiler free but I just can’t. The ending made me cry happy tears. I can’t ignore it. Continue reading

January 2019 Wrap Up

The cover of The Seven Husbands of Evelyn Hugo features the actress herself in THAT famous emerald dress.

January was a good month for reading! I got through most January TBR of my and a couple of others too, plus I picked up some sick reads for next month. Tearjerkers take pride of place this month’s wrap up (maybe it’s something about January?) because my gosh did I cry through some of these books. I also found it so hard to pick up a book – I think going back to work after my three weeks off over Christmas ruined me. Anyway, I still did relatively okay this months – eight books means I’m on track for my goal of 100 and I’m going to take some of my own advice to get me through the last of the dark days of winter!

Anyway, enough rambling – let’s jump in to my January Wrap Up! Continue reading

Yellow and black tend to mean bad, like wasps. Doesn't bode well for the colour scheme of The Flower Girls then, does it?

What happens when you mix the innocence of children with murder? A gripping book full of twists and turns!
