It Starts With Us by Colleen Hoover book review

Book reviews, Contemporary Fiction, Romance
It Starts With Us is the sequel to the hugely popular It Ends With Us. It Ends With Us was a TikTok sensation and arguably shot Colleen Hoover into the almost god-like stratosphere she finds herself in now. Apparently she's sold more books than the bible this year. Though is the Bible really a hot seller anymore? Please note that this article contains affiliate links.

The Seven Husbands of Evelyn Hugo is a book I've had on my mental TBR for a long time. I've not owned the Kindle version and up until a couple of weeks ago, I didn't have the physical copy either. However, it was high on my list as I'd heard nothing but great things about it with one of my friends saying it was their favourite book of all time. Is it now also mine?

Verity by Colleen Hoover book review

Verity by Colleen Hoover book review

Book reviews, Contemporary Fiction, Mystery, Thriller
Verity was a flash in a pan of a book. I picked it up as a part of a deal after someone DMed me saying that it was amazing! The book was described to me as "mind-blowing" and "you'll love it" and for the first 95% of the book I was thinking it was good and tense but a bit predictable and then literally the last 5% had me shooketh.

The Vanishing Half by Brit Bennett book review

Book reviews, Contemporary Fiction, Historical Fiction
The Vanishing Half was the number one most-voted-for book when I held a poll recently asking people which book I should read from my physical TBR list. After a quick google, I realised I wasn't quite sure what it was I was about to read about. And around 300 pages later, I'm still not 100% sure if I really get what the book was trying to portray.

Book review of It Ends With Us by Colleen Hoover

Book review of It Ends With Us by Colleen Hoover

Book reviews, Contemporary Fiction, Romance
Colleen Hoover is an author I've been meaning to pick up for quite some time. I've seen a lot of her books on my social feeds as books that are often five-star reads. It Ends With Us was a book gifted to me recently and so it's my first Hoover book. I'll let you into a secret early on: it's absolutely bloody brilliant. It Ends With Us is a book that focuses on some dark matters and some uncomfortable matters but Hoover writes these in such a raw but intelligent way that will have you caring far too much. It Ends With Us plot - 5/5 It Ends With Us is a story about Lily and inevitably her relationship with two men: Ryle and Atlas. We follow the tale of…

Book Review of Sweetpea by C.J. Skuse

Book Review of Sweetpea by C.J. Skuse

Book reviews, Contemporary Fiction, Crime, Thriller
As I start many book reviews, I’d seen quite a lot of good things about Sweet Pea on my Bookstagram before I picked it up with some even stating it’s their favourite book series. Therefore when it came on offer on Kindle and was a cheap Audible buy, I had to pick it up! [caption id="attachment_1573" align="aligncenter" width="400"] Pin me to Pinterest![/caption] Sweet Pea by C.J. Skuse is a book about a psychopath who lives a normal life alongside her murderous other life. We follow Rhiannon as she goes about her everyday duties via the entries of her diary. Plot – 3.5/5 Rhiannon seems like a very regular person to most people - she may be a little odd, but no more so than everybody these days. However, little does…
