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  ...

ABBBC November

Welcome back to the ABB Book Club (ABBBC). This months book of choice was The Sun is also a Star By Nicola Yoon. I really struggled at first to get into this book. I felt it just didn’t really grip me. I persevered and eventually it became quite an easy read. I felt the plot was kind of lacking in the fact that the story revolves around Natasha trying to get to her appointment. I felt it lacked substance and needed something else to happen in the book. I was constantly waiting for  ...

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  ...

Welcome back to the ABB Book Club. This months book of choice was Randy Pausch The Last Lecture. This is a book I think I have read easily half a dozen times and each time I just want to start at the beginning again and start over. A lot of professionals talk about giving one last lecture or one last book and normally it is a book of wisdom or what they wishes they had done. For the reader or viewer it’s nice, but that’s it. It is more for the person giving the last lecture than  ...

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 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  ...

The Reality of Blogging

I’ve been meaning to write this post for a while now, originally I had planned it for my one year blogversary and for it to be titled “What I learned in my first year of blogging” but then i thought i would hold off for a better time. Blogging, i feel, gets kind of put on a pedestal. But blogging is hard work, it takes dedication, consistency and patience. Blogging is extremely time-consuming. You need to be prepared to take the opportune photo and be thinking this in the back of your mind  ...
