The Four Books I Read in January 2023

Features, Monthly Round Ups
Yeah, doesn't look like January was a particularly productive month for reading, was it? There are a few factors to this but I'll go into those in a bit and discuss more the books I read and why it wasn't the biggest numbers this month.

There was quite an array of different genres throughout the month, so that was good. There was one historical fiction novel, one contemporary fiction,…

Anxious People by Fredrik Backman book review

Anxious People by Fredrik Backman book review

Book reviews, Contemporary Fiction, Mystery
When I read A Man Called Ove a couple of years ago, I absolutely fell in love with the character of Ove and the simple yet powerful story that Backamn told. One of my friends recommended I pick up Anxious People quite some time ago so when I received it as a present for Christmas I quickly put it to the top of my TBR and I'm so glad I did!

Act of Oblivion by Robert Harris book review

Act of Oblivion by Robert Harris book review

Book reviews, Crime, Historical Fiction
Act of Oblivion is a book I was recommended and lent by a good friend. He's a big fan of historical fiction and rated Act of Oblivion as a book that I definitely needed to pick up and read. It focuses on a story that I don't think a lot of people know about but one which is actually really interesting! The problem when you write historical fiction based on a real story is if the story isn't deeply fleshed out in real life then you've really got to fill out the book with other details. Does Robert Harris do this enough here? Please note that this article contains affiliate links. This means that if you purchase any products via any of the affiliate links below, I may receive a…

Spare by Prince Harry book review

Spare by Prince Harry book review

Book reviews, Memoir, Nonfiction
I can tell you now this book is one of the most talked-about books I've ever read. Prince Harry and Meghan Markle have divided the world. Their whole relationship has been "front-page news" since its reveal. In this book Prince Harry takes you through his whole life, admitting a lot and also revealing so much about how the Royal Family is run. Please note that this article contains affiliate links.

Friends, Lovers, and the Big Terrible Thing by Matthew Perry book review

Friends, Lovers, and the Big Terrible Thing by Matthew Perry book review

Book reviews, Memoir, Nonfiction
I've always been a massive fan of Friends, it is without a doubt one of my favourite shows of all time and I'll put it on almost any time of the day. When I saw Matthew Perry had released a memoir, I was very keen to read who the real Chandler was. I knew about his addiction but only on a very surface level "Ooh, did you know Chandler was apparently addicted to drugs during his time on Friends" sort of level but wasn't aware of the horrible and harrowing depths to which the addiction took over his life.

Snowed in For Christmas by Sarah Morgan book review

Snowed in For Christmas by Sarah Morgan book review

Contemporary Fiction, Romance
Prior to the Christmas period I was struggling to get into the festive spirit. When you're in your late 20s, you don't really know any kids who get excited by Christmas and you don't break up from work until a couple of days before, it's hard to get into the festive spirit. So when I saw Snowed In For Christmas by Sarah Morgan for sale for 99p on Kindle and then at my local Asda supermarket for only £4, I knew I couldn't say no. Did it make me feel festive? Weeelll... eh, kinda. Please note that this article contains affiliate links.

It's the end of 2022! This year I have read an awful lot of books (60 to be exact) and read some absolute bangers. I've read some books that I know will be added to my top books of all time.
