Review: From Twinkle, With Love by Sandhya Menon

So I knew that I wanted to read this book because I loved and adored When Dimple Met Rishi, both of these books feature cutesy characters and brilliant moments. I loved the fact that this story is told through the letters that Twinkle writes to old film stars. Women that she admires and wishes to be more like. But Twinkle is definitely a character we can all empathy with, after all, all of us have a bit of Twinkle in us? All of us have that super awkwardness about us. All Twinkle wants is to be like everyone else, and when the mysterious ‘N’ starts emailing her, she hopes that the boy she’s been crushing on for ages has finally taken notice. But will it end as she expects? Twinkle also wants to be a film director and an opportunity arises for to stand in the spotlight and make the most of the opportunity. Will she arise to the challenge or will she need more help than she realised? This is a coming of age story, that is filled with the angst of growing up, romance and over the top drama. I do feel that this was a book set […]

Blog Tour / Review: The Blue Salt Road by Joanne Harris

Mesmerising, moving and utterly unforgettable this is a beautiful new fairytale tale that is bewitching and enchanting. I loved the folklore aspect of this book, and the sense that this story has been passed down for generations. Never changing. Always woven into the very heritage of the community. You get a sense that everyone knows the secrets and no one dare admit it. The illustrations by Bonnie Helen Hawkins added to the tale and were incredible. They brought to life the atmosphere, the characters and gave a style to the story telling. This is a tale that’s will pull you under the waves, send a chill down your spine, and hook you in. If you know nothing about Selkie lore or you’re an expert this book will give you everything. I was surprised by how gripped I was by this book. But that is a sign of true talent. To entice you, start you turning the page until the very end. This is was an amazing story and one that will be clearly a future classic.

Blog Tour / Review: Skyward by Brandon Sanderson

Damn, you know that a book is awesome when you read it in one sitting and stay up until stupid o’clock to finish. Skyward was a blast and one that I adored.  If your after a heart thumping, fist pumping book the n look no further! Spensa is a girl who dreams of being a pilot and clearing her father’s name. But everyone is against her succeeding and the powers that be do everything in their power to prevent her from achieving her goal.b To compensate for the cards she’s been dealt she is an angry girl with a big attitude who manages to spout some strange thought. Particularly when dealing with her enemies. But she is determined to success and her growth is incredible. She starts to realise that there is more to life than being a pilot, that it takes more than being a good flyer. And sometimes you can change the very definition of a word. Spensa has been told that she is the Cowards Daughter her whole life. And this is one label that is not easy for her to shake. However throughout she proves how strong, determined and brave she is. As she helps her […]

Review: The Cottage on Sunshine Beach by Holly Martin

Holly Martin has done it again and pulled another stunner out of the bag. I was so excited to return to Sandcastle Bay and catch up with the gang. This story focuses on Melody and Jamie’s love story. Both of them have liked each other for years but for one reason or another, neither of them have been brave enough to admit their feelings. But all that is about to change…. There are some really gems in this book  as it is filled with hilarious moments, heart-warming scenes and  brilliant one liners. This book was a joy to read and gave me a warm fuzzy feeling. While this is set in a slightly warmer season, this is a book that make you laugh, love and just want to sit down and turn every page. If you want a treat, then look no further.
