Sorry Not Sorry by Sophie Ranald

Read my book review Sorry Not Sorry is a cute and endearing read that any woman can relate to! I devoured this book in one sitting and felt very connected to Charlotte (which is a must have for me). I hope the author continues writing books like this in the future because I will be one of the first people to buy it! I loved this to pieces. In this novel, readers will meet Charlotte. Charlotte has come to a crossroads of sorts in her life as things are beginning to change- just not her. Her best friend and roommate just left and bought a house together and she is still as single as one can be. But when she stumbles upon a podcast that […]

Coming Home to Holly Close Farm by Julie Houston

Coming Home to Holly Close Farm by Julie Houston

Coming Home to Holly Close Farm is a gorgeous story about a woman who, after finding out her boyfriend is married, goes home to her family. In doing this, the heroine now only learns to live on her own, but the secrets of her family that go back generations. Julie’s ability to weave Charlies story within the history of her family is magnificent. I felt the anticipation of learning more information and loved how Charlie was awakened through the history. All in all, it’s just a beautiful story and elegantly told. I love the how humor was sprinkled thought the story, and I love the feeling of family.  If you are looking for an original and classic read, I very much recommend this one.

I Owe You One by Sophie Kinsella

I Owe You One  by Sophie Kinsella

I Owe You One is another winner from bestselling author (and personal favorite of mine), Sophie Kinsella! I absolutely adored this book. I saw a little of myself within Fixie, connected with her character on a deep level, and loved the changes that happened in her life in the end. I was truly rooting for Fixie the whole way through and loved watching her progress from being a girl everyone walked all over to a woman who takes charge. If you are a fan of Sophie Kinsella and have been reading her books since the beginning (like I have) then you will notice that this is a classic Kinsella novel. The author has a certain sparkle within her novels and it certainly hasn’t been dimmed! […]

99 Percent Mine by Sally Thorne

99 Percent Mine by Sally Thorne

99 Percent Mine was one of my most anticipated books of January 2019. I think it’s mostly because so many people rave about Thorne’s books. Don’t get me wrong, her books are good and I enjoyed this one but it wasn’t a favorite of mine (hence a 3.5 star review). I guess I was hoping for a bit more depth in the characters. It would have been nice to have seen a little bit more of Darcy and Tom’s past (clearly, the two loved each other since childhood), a bit more twin-tuition (why add twins to the story line if they don’t FEEL like twins, and a lot more information into the heroines medical condition (that would have really added something to the story as […]

The Great Escape by Charlotte Fallowfield

The Great Escape by Charlotte Fallowfield

The Great Escape is another laugh out loud novel from Charlotte Fallowfield! While it is part of the Dilbury Village series it can be read as a complete standalone. If you have read the first book; Never the Bride you will recognize some of the same scenes as the books take place around the same time (i.e. turdgate LOL). Anyway, I really enjoyed this one. It’s super cute, funny, and features my favorite secondary character from Never the Bride.  Georgie’s love life had taken a turn for the worst when she found out her fiance was cheating on her with a local barmaid. So her and her BFF Abbie take a little trip to Mexico to drown their sorrows in booze and sunshine. Who cares if the […]

Meet Clara Morgan by Lacey London

Meet Clara Morgan by Lacey London

I am so glad I decided to pick up this series again because it has really gotten me out of a book slump! If you enjoy chick lit novels about hilarious and accident prone heroines and books that are a great escape from reality then I highly recommend reading the Clara Andrews series. For the next couple of weeks I plan to read this entire series as the books are fairly short and so much fun. I also want to mention that if you are a fan of the Shopaholic series by Sophie Kinsella (I am re-reading the series this year because I loved it so much) this series is very close to it. While our Heroine Clara is not a shopaholic like Becky Bloomwood, […]

Until We Collide by Charlotte Fallowfield

Until We Collide by Charlotte Fallowfield

Unfortunately, this book didn’t work for me. While I love the way the author builds her characters up and makes them fun, this book was missing something. I think it’s the fact that I was unable to relate to the heroine for starters. There simply wasn’t enough background for her and I had trouble connecting with her. Even more, there was so much time passed in between chapters and I didn’t feel like I was able to be a part of the journey. How after so many years and so many “chance” meetings did these two NOT see how much they loved each other? It came off as unrealistic and downright frustrating. Finally, there was way too much going on in such a short book. […]

Clara Meets the Parents by Lacey London

Clara Meets the Parents by Lacey London

Clara Meets the Parents is the second book in the hilarious Clara Andrews series! If I were to compare this series to another it would definitely be the Shopaholic series by Sophie Kinsella. It just has those vibes, you know? Anyway, I liked this book a lot better then I liked the first. Perhaps it’s because Clara finally shows some growth. Or it could be because the books are finally growing on me. Either way, I really enjoyed reading this one and did so in one sitting. I found it to be laugh out loud funny and extremely relatable. This is especially true when it comes to meeting your significant others parents!  If you are a chick lit lover and haven’t read this series yet […]
