Lie With Me by Sabine Durrant Book Review

Lie with Me is about Paul. Paul is a bit of a womaniser and, in my opinion, a women’s worst nightmare. Really he only cares about one thing… sex. He clearly has a flavour for the younger woman, however, although this is brought up throughout the book it is not what the book is about. Paul meets an old friend and in turn starts dating one of the friends family members. He is invited on their family holiday and he makes a few white lies to ‘fit in’. However, these  ...

Eleanor Oliphant is Completely Fine by Gail Honeyman Book Review

Welcome back to the ABB Book Club (ABBBC). It has been a while I know and I apologise. It has been a difficult 12 months but I am so very glad to be picking up the books again. For the past 2 weeks I have had my head stuck in Eleanor Oliphant is Completely Fine by Gail Honeyman. So I guess this is more of a book review than a Book Club discussion. I’ll be totally honest, I struggled to get into the book. I have had it on the side for a couple of months and would read a page here and  ...

Finally picking up the Books again! | ABBBC

It has been a hell of a long time since I tackled a book. Nearly a year to be exact. I have missed it so incredibly much. The past 12 months have gone by in a blur and the time to pick up a book has not been there, I thought. In the mornings I get up with Evelyn no later than 6:30 and we get changed and ready for the day and breakfast is in front of her by 7. Whilst she eats I usually check emails and respond to clients and see the mornings updates on social media. And let me stop you right  ...

ABBBC April

Welcome back to the ABB Book Club (ABBBC). First of all I know this post is late- I am sorry. April? What ? Did it even happen? I am literally losing track of weeks here! Anyway so this months book of choice was Happy: Finding joy in every day and letting go of perfect By Fearne Cotton. You can buy it here. I am going to be 100% honest with you here… I could not get into this book at all! I really couldn’t. Over March and April I really tried. I picked it up a dozen times easily  ...

ABBBC February

Welcome back to the ABB Book Club (ABBBC).  February has literally flown by and we have been reading The List by Siobhan Vivian. I ploughed through this book at the beginning of the month as I knew having a new born would mean my priorities were going to be a bit out of wack and found it to be a surprisingly easy read. The List is about a group of people who’s names are put on a list at the beginning of the new school year. The list is the hottest and ugliest people from each year  ...

Welcome back to the ABB Book Club. This months book of choice was The Life-Changing Magic of Not Giving a F**k by Sarah Knight. This month again was a reader request and not a normal average book like we have been reading. This is a self help book. The Life-Changing Magic of Not Giving a F**k is literally what it says in the title. A book that teaches you to stop giving a f**k about certain things in life that are beyond your control. Stop giving a F what other people think of you, stop  ...

Welcome back to the ABB Book Club. This months book of choice was Girl in Pieces by Kathleen Glasgow. This month was another reader request. I felt at first that maybe we would need longer than a month for this one but I think it turned out actually not too bad. Girl in Pieces is about Charlotte Davies, a teenage girl who has already been through a lot at so younger and uses cutting as a way of escape. She enters a facility at the beginning of the book when she heals her wonders but  ...

Welcome back to the ABB Book Club. This months book of choice was The One Memory of Flora Banks by Emily Barr. I thought this book would be a great one to read as firstly it already had great reviews but also because it was meant to be very different to the books we had already read. Life has a funny way of showing us exactly what we should be grateful for and I feel life has done that through this book. The One Memory of Flora Banks is written beautifully. I was intrigued by the premise of  ...

Welcome back to the ABBBC. This months book of choice was If I Was Your Girl by Meredith Russo. I thought that this was a very important book. It fills a gap that needed to be filled. It is important, eye-opening, thought-provoking and emotional. I simply couldn’t wait to read the ending. If I Was Your Girl is a book like no other. It is nothing like i have ever read before. I think the book dives into a real apt topic of this century. Transgender. But, what is Transgender? Google  ...

ABBBC January- All The Bright Things Review

Welcome back to the ABBBC. This months book of choice was All The Bright Places by Jennifer Niven. A complete page turner. I simply could not put this book down. I was first drawn to this book by the vibrant front cover, after a quick read of the blurb i couldn’t wait to get stuck in. So this book is the story of a girl who learns to live from a boy who wants to die. The tale of two teenagers who’s lives although totally different are kind of the same. Suicidal thoughts and  ...
