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  ...

However it will be back up soon… promise. As I cant read too much right now here is a list of 25 books to read this year that I would have loved too or have managed to cram in! 25 Books to read in 2018 1. Then she was  ...

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 October

  I know, Im sorry its a week late! October has been the busiest month for me this year and I just had no time to read. This months book of choice was Everything Everything by Nicola Yoon. I have been seeing a lot of different things about this recently to the point where a few weeks ago the trailer for the film fell into my inbox. I thought it would be quite a pick me up for all those people with the October blues. When I finally did get round to picking it up it literally took me a  ...

ABBBC July

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 Extraordinary Means by Robyn Schneider. I didn’t really know what to expect from this book as it was a reader request this month, however, I was pleasantly surprised at how readable the book was. This book was all about Lane who goes to Latham House, a sanatorium for teens suffering from an incurable strain of tuberculosis. Lane meets Sadie, who he evidently already has met before, they fall in love but Sadie is  ...

Welcome back to the ABB Book Club. This months book of choice was  My Heart and Other Black Holes by Jasmine Warga. When I chose this book for the club I didn’t really know much about it so I didn’t really know what to expect. This book is actually being turned into a film which should be quite interesting Firstly I want to start with the title ‘My heart and other black holes’. I don’t feel the title has much of a resemblance to the story and I felt there could  ...

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  ...

ABBBC March

Welcome back to the ABBBC. This months book of choice was Big Magic by Elizabeth Gilbert- the writer of Eat, Pray, Love. I thought this was a great choice of book for this month because it is a really self-motivating/ ‘it’s going to be ok’ type of book. I’ve been seeing a lot of people possibly needing to read this and i thought it may help. Sometimes it is a simple thing like a book that can change your perspective of life. Maybe it’s the way the author writes  ...

ABBBC February

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  ...
