One Day by David Nicholls book review

One Day by David Nicholls book review

Book reviews, Contemporary Fiction, Romance
Sometimes a book comes along that really stays with you for a long time after you’ve finished reading it. For me most recently One Day was that book. It may well be the best love story that I’ve ever read, featuring a beautifully difficult, honest and brutal portrayal of two people who never really know each other’s worth and yet forever want to be with one another.

White Nights by Fyodor Dostoyevsky book review

White Nights by Fyodor Dostoyevsky book review

Book reviews, Classics, Romance
White Nights is a book that I instantly bought after seeing Jack Edwards (of Booktube fame) say that he'd seen a tweet that said you don't know love until you've read White Nights by Fyodor Dostoyevsky. I'm not the biggest romantic and find it hard when romance is written poorly to get involved. But did White Nights do enough to convince me that it really is the ultimate book about love?

The Fourth Wing by Rebecca Yarros book review

Book reviews, Fantasy, Romance
The Fourth Wing was one of the most talked-about books on the internet this year. It, for many, has been the entrance into fantasy that they finally needed. It features dragons, a sweeping landscape, a broadening world, different cultures and conflict - enough for me to consider it fantasy. Please note that this article contains affiliate links.

Tomorrow, and Tomorrow, and Tomorrow by Gabrielle Zevin book review

Tomorrow, and Tomorrow, and Tomorrow by Gabrielle Zevin book review

Book reviews, Historical Fiction, Romance
If you wanted to sell a book to me, telling me it was about two people who spend decades of their lives trying to create the best games, you'd have me pretty much sold. Tomorrow, and Tomorrow, and Tomorrow was sold as this to me by many people across social media. This concept sounded very enticing and so I went into it more excited than I already was by the fantastic front cover design. Please note that this article contains affiliate links.

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.

The Giver of Stars by JoJo Moyes book review

Book reviews, Historical Fiction, Romance
The Giver of Stars is a book I had seen receive a lot of praise across my social media channels. I'd heard of JoJo Moyes first via her movie Me Before You with Emelia Clark in it which I really liked. However, I'd heard this book was very different to anything she'd written before and, if she's only really written stories about love before, I have to agree.

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.
