fullsizeoutput_19e7I feel like I am doing ok this year and may even exceed my total as we have not been camping yet and we all read a lot there. There have been some very good books this year but also a few more than last year that I couldn’t really get into. But that’s life, we cannot all like everything so I will keep positive and keep going. I am just about to start Patricia Dixon’s book called They don’t know, if you remember her last book was my book of the year in 2017 so I really hope this one is as good.


Keep a look out for my review on publishing day. Have a good week and happy reading everyone.

I was looking forward to reading this as the previous book, All these nearly fights,I really enjoyed and this didn’t disappoint it was so good to have all the ends tied up. This was a really positive book to read about how you can overcome huge problems and come out the other side in a really good place. It was also a good book to read about money and how staying sensible is the way forward.

I like Jimmy the main character, you can just imagine him giving you all the spiel about buying a car from him. He not only recovers from losing his job but also his partner paving the way forward so he is eventually in a good place. Yes, the lottery win did help him achieve his dreams but he did work at it and over came what the world threw at him.

You could even have a third book about how his life went after that as I am sure with a character like Jimmy it would not be all plain sailing.

Nice to read a pleasant happy book and would be nice to read sitting in the sunshine on holiday.


August and the sun is still shining but where did July go, one minute we are looking forward to the summer beginning the next the children have broken up from school and the summer is in full swing. But really we are so lucky to have this gorgeous weather, I actually feel sorry for the people having to drive to the airports in hot cars to fly out to the sunshine when we have it here and even hotter than some places abroad.

I did a lot of reading during July, probably when I was sitting in the garden enjoying it after Luke the gardener got it all looking super with less maintenance. There were some really good books and three book tours this month that I really enjoyed.

I also did some posts for a dating company and they were fun to be involved with and no I didn’t go on a date but I did have a good look!

Harbour books in Whitstable had a busy month with book releases and book events, I went to a couple of these and really enjoyed them.

I have found just the camper I would like to up-grade to so will trade mine in if I havent sold it by the time it is ready.


The competition I ran was for a new book from Alex Brown called The Wish, Alex will be picking the winner this week and I will post the winner at the weekend also doing a spotlight on Alex.

So that was July gone in a flash and now we have August, the best month of the year as its summer and the grandchildren are all on holiday.

Have a brilliant summer everyone




I was given this book by Netgalley to read for an honest review, I would like to take this opportunity to say thank you.

This certainly had you gripped from the beginning so you just can’t put it down, we all know that secrets always come out and they do at the start of this story. So Geo ends up in prison but that is just the start as eventually the story unravels and the past is turning into the present. This has great characters that are really gritty making them all go together really well with drama following them until the end. I just had to keep reading as the plot gets thicker, this psychological thriller is a brilliant piece of work by Jennifer Hillier and I am sure it will be a best seller. I loved the drama at the end!

Holiday reading
