Educated is mind blowing. I’m not into memoir and this is actually my second one but I think that it is exceptional. The journey of Tara Westover is one of a kind and it seems more like a fiction than a book based on a true story. It is her debut book but it has been one of the most popular books for 2018.
I love reading book reviews and I follow so many book bloggers on Facebook and on Instagram. The hype about The Book of Love was huge. It seems like I was the only one who didn’t own a copy of and I couldn’t let that be for any longer.
Rarely would I buy short story books but I like Cecelia Ahern’s books and when I saw Roar in my local bookshop I didn’t think much before buying it.
I just love book plots that are set in a bookshop. There is something special and charming in it or maybe it’s just me who was fascinated of the idea to have my own one (I blame the movie You’ve got an email with Meg Ryan). Since I watched this movie when I was young I’ve always wanted to own a bookshop like the one Kathleen has in the movie. If share the same dream then read The diary of a bookseller by Shaun Bythell.
It’s hard not to empathise with the lovely characters of this book. I have read a lot of good reviews of A Thousand Roads Home and yet I was simply not ready for the heartbreaking story.
A romantic novel with a touch of magic.
The Sunday Lunch Club is a cosy warm book, perfect for the weekend. Every Sunday Anna’s family have lunch together. It’s a tradition, since their parents left the town they used to live in and moved away. After that happened Anna and her siblings see each other once per week and enjoy the time together. Sometimes they laugh, sometimes cry but what keeps them together is the love they share and the understanding that family always comes first.
Everybody lies…that reminds me of House M.D. I find human behaviour intriguing and I’m always interested in books where you can learn a little bit more about it. The reason I bought this book was the tagline on the UK edition – “What the internet can tell us about who we really are.” Fascinating enough, isn’t it?
Besides my book obsession, I’m powerless to resist to all the beauty products on the market. I’m especially interested in skin care. With all the advertisements, beauty blogs and friend’s advice, it might be hard to pick the right product for you and with the prices of some of the products a bit overwhelming, you have to choose wisely. That’s why I think it’s handy to have all the essential information in one book.
Having a chat with a close friend’ that’s how you feel while reading this book. It’s easy readable but you really want to read it slowly so you can enjoy it for longer. Reese seems so down to earth, you wish she was your friend and you that you were a regular guest of her fancy dinner parties.
