It’s been a busy month for reading, with me ensuring that I set time aside to enjoy a chapter or two of a book. As well as opting to read when I have 10 minutes rather than scrolling through social media. Purchasing a Kindle Paperwhite last year has certainly paid dividends. However, since the lockdown measures have been introduced I have shied away from reading. The overwhelmingness of everything has left me feeling like hiding away rather than escaping into other peoples stories.

What I’ve been reading in March 2020…

The Two Lives of Lydia Bird – Josie Silver

Rating: 4 out of 5.

I’m torn as to how I feel about this book. It follows the journey of Lydia Bird who’s fiance dies in a car crash on her birthday. Switching between her life awake and the alternative reality she dreams whilst she sleeps – with the help of pink sleeping pills given to her by the doctor. Which made me uncomfortable, however, I can understand why she would want to dream about what life could have been like.

Available from Amazon in Paperback, Hardcover, Kindle Store and Audiobook.

Will You? – S J Crabb

Rating: 5 out of 5.

An easy read that takes you back to your high school crush and the ‘what if I met him now’ scenario. However, what if you bumped into them as they opened a rival store across the street? This sparks the start of an unlikely fake relationship. I did wonder if they would be a few more twists within the book but actually it is a good read without too much drama.

The Last Piece of My Heart – Paige Toon

Rating: 5 out of 5.

Bridget is a travel writer who has an idea for a book about regaining the pieces of her heart back from the people she has loved in the past. The idea is that she can then give the biggest part of her heart to her one true love. Her publishers don’t seem convinced by the idea, however, offer her a deal to ghostwrite a sequel for a novel written by a writer who passed away before she was able to finish it. This sparks a journey to Cornwall and into the life of Charlie (the writer’s widow) and their baby daughter April. A page-turner that I didn’t want to finish, although the ending might be a little predictable it didn’t make it any less wonderful.

In Search of a Love Story by Rachel Schurig

Rating: 4 out of 5.

“So I’m supposed to be looking for a guy who seems kinda like a jerk and fall in love with him, and then forgive him when I find out he was lying to me about another woman?”

Emily is not romantic, she’s never watched romance films or read that genre of book. So when her love life is crashing her friends stage an intervention. Taking her on a journey through the romantic classis so that she can educate herself in matters of the heart.

As someone who loves romance, it was interesting to see a non-romantic point of view of films etc. Leaving me laughing at some if the hypocrisy that we love in films but might not accept in real life.

The Prenup by Lauren Layne

Rating: 5 out of 5.

Ten years ago Charlotte and Colin signed a prenup ahead of their marriage of convenience. Put together by Charlotte’s brother to protect the inheritance that Charlotte was going to receive upon getting married. Colin, on the other hand, was gaining his green card so both parties stood to gain what they wanted from the ‘marriage’. However, Colin contacts Charlotte after ten years looking to gain a divorce, although there was a little surprise within the prenup that they signed – they have to live together for three months before they are able to get a divorce. A little joke clause added by her brother which he thought was funny at the time.

In order to fulfil the prenup clause, Charlotte moves into Colin’s apartment to ride out the three months of living together. However, they are both in for some surprises along the way.

The Postcard by Zoë Folbigg

Rating: 3 out of 5.

The sequel to The Note I hoped that this would continue the beautiful love story between Maya and James.

After meeting and falling in love Maya and James embark on a year out travelling together. Maya has landed a magazine column journalling their travels with Train Man. However, it is clear that the magical year travelling is not all it’s cracked up to be. Maya is living in hope that James will propose, whilst James is thinking about all the photography jobs he has given up to take this year out.

The story didn’t have the same feel from the first book, with the story bland and rushed in places.

Available to buy from Amazon in Paperback, Kindle Store and Audiobook.
